I am having stutter issues with certain mkv’s (full rip with makemkv).
My test file is The Matrix, it plays fine on a popcorn a210 and my pc but is all over the place on the Hub. I have tried internal storage and via an external hdd connected by usb. I do not stream files.
I have tested different frame rate settings but have had no luck. Is there a known issue with VC-1 files? I ran a test with a mpeg4 file in mkv and have had no issues with playback.
I am using firmware 2.07.17 (the latest two firmwares cause my Hub to bring up the orange arrow, so I stuck with the last working firmware).
Any one have any experience with this, or perhaps could offer some advice?
There should be no issues with MKV files encoded in VC-1. You may try a different transcoder, you can also post a Media Info of a couple of your MKV: How to find information about WD TV and Elements Play media files. You may as well send this to WD by email so they can take a look at it.
Yeah mine plays full bluray rips in MKV with VC-1 video completely uncompressed perfectly from internal storage and streaming off my NAS. I havent tried it with an external hard drive but that should also work. The only thing i can think of causing the stuttering could be the encoding, so maybe fiddle with that.
No, there’s no issue with VC-1.
You may want to try a different program for your encoding.
Either MKVtoolnix (mkvmerge) for 1:1, or Handbrake for compressed.
