Defirence betwine Media Server and Network Shares

when i play through Media server most film dont lag, but is dos when i watch though network shares… how can that be? :slight_smile: im streaming from a WD my cloud :slight_smile:

There should be no difference in performance, the media server will just organize the files for you but it will not have any effect on the bandwidth. From where are you trying to play the files? 

i got a WD my cloud when iu play from network shares some movies lag as **bleep** :S
