I am having an issue where I am able to play some files wirelessly via the network share method, but with alot of stuttering, But I am able to stream the same file via the media server method without any stuttering. What gives?
The part that’s paticularly strange to me is that using the Network Share method I can stream a DVD ripped to MKV format. Yet when I try to stream a AVI using the network share method the video lags and stutters. But if I try to play the MKV and the AVI via the media server method I don’t get any stuttering?
A little about my set up,
1- Streaming through Wifi-N. I realize that wireless streaming could be atleast part of the cause, but it’s odd that I get no stuttering using the media server, but stuttering using the network share.
2- All files are stored on a HP Mediasmart running Windows Home Server 2007.
3- For the network share methodI have set up a user accont w/ password for the WD Live on the WHS. This user account has full access (write access) to the video folder.
4- For the media share method I am using Windows media connect enabled on the WHS. I have also tried Servioo. Both work.
