I just bought a WD TV Live and updated it to the latest firmware and ISOs stutter badly, for both DVD and BD images.
My storage device is a 20TB nas with gigabit ethernet, over samba and my old player was an original Xtreamer, which played these files from this storage without issue.
My ISOs have been ripped with AnyDVD HD.
If I re-encode to .mp4 (H.264+AAC) via ffmpeg and x264, the .mp4 plays without issue, even if it is the same size as the original VOB.
If I extract a 50GB .m2ts from a BD ISO, it still plays fine.
The issue happens on both playing the ISO directly, and extracting to a AUDIO_TS / VIDEO_TS directory structure and trying to play VOBs. In fact, if I extract it to this directory structure, the WD TV Live even struggles to respond when navigating the directory (e.g. it’s hard to open VIDEO_TS or scroll down to VTS_01_1.VOB - it can take up to about 30 seconds to respond to a button press on the remote).
Does anyone else have this issue on playing ISO / VOB or any ideas on fixing it?
