Hi community! 

I have an issue with some .mkv files! They are heavy stuttering! I use WDTV (newest firmaware) live over network shares! Here is a MediaInfo of one of the stuttering files!

Hi, this file looks like a full BR rip into MKV. Lot’s of people have reported stuttering issues with high bit rate HD type files over the network shares.

Have you tried using a USB device attached to the WD Live and seeing if the file will play OK?, or media streaming from PC, others have reported successes that way, though myself, I still have stuttering video for very high bit rates.

Gesamte Bitrate : 38,0 Mbps

This ^^ . In other posts I mentioned that the max bitrate I can get out of the WDTV live when accessing files through network shares is about 20 Mbit/s, any bitrate peaks over this and it’s stutter time. This doesn’t mean that the chiptset/memory etc… can’t handle it, only the networking code used to read the files.

If you wanna play that video flawlessly use a media server to stream the video to the WDTV. TVersity does the work just fine, and can handle even higher bitrates, just make sure it is *not* set to transcode the video, the WDTV can handle it if it is streamed properly from TVersity.

I’m also having this problem… Only when viewing an .mkv file from a network share…

I tried using a composite video cable y still the problem…

I tried selecting 720p (60Hz) and nothing…

I copied the same movie to a USB drive an it works great…

There is something wrong with the network code of the drive…

Is there a workaround???

If your accessing the files from a network share, it’s probably safe to assume that they are coming off a Windows or Mac host. You might want to look into installing a DLNA server onto the host machine and streaming them down, as suggested above.

Streaming with TVersity solved the issue! Big Thnaks @ all!
