Playing back videos but laggy

Hello guys,

I have a few videos on my WD mybooklive, when I go to play it, they are laggy. I have checked and the firmware is up to date I am on this firmware version  - MyBookLive 02.43.03-022.

Any ideas on how I could resolve this? 

I am on the laptop, running Windows 7 and the WD mybook live is downstairs connected to a switch.

Thanks in advance.


Since you do not actually mention your network settings, I would assume your are playing the files via wifi.

IF that is the case, disable wireless card on laptop, connect it to the switch and see if the files play fine.

If they do, you have issues with wireless, which in most cases, it is your router/switch.

Cool, I’ll try that thanks.
