I’ve got a WD TV Live streaming box with firmware 1.14.09 running on it. I use my Synology 212j NAS as a data storage for my movie files. I connect to the NAS via NFS share with a wired LAN connection, through my Asus gigabit router.
Yesterday i’ve faced with the following: i wanted to watch an MKV movie, but after few minutes the movie stopped, than 10 seconds later continued: it’s like it would be not buffering it enough. I’ve checked the read sequences: according to my NAS’ info the reading speed was around 900kb-1,3MB/sec. The size of the video file is 7,2Gb, encoded with x264 codec @ 6,1Mbps bitrate (simple 720p).
I’ve read on forums, that even higher bitrate movies should not be a problem for the WDTV. It’s like the box would not request enough from the file in advance, that’s why it stuck. Do you have any idea what can cause my problem and how i could solve this?
Thanks for the replies in advance!
