Slow Streaming WIFI my cloud and WD tv live streaming media player

I just purchased a Mycloud 2tb because i want to stream videos to my tvs with wd live tv streaming media players. both my players see the network shares but when i select a file to play it is like the old dial-up connection watching the little arrow circle spinning like it is buffering the file. it then plays about 20 seconds of video and the little spinning aroow appears again and this just keeps going on.

I have both players connected WIFI to my network and i would apperciate any suggestions on how i could speed the streaming up. I was thinking of connecting my players directly to my network.  does anyone know if this would solve my problem?

Any suggestione would be greatly appreciated.


Just for troubleshooting purposes try connecting the media player to the router. Just to make sure it is not a WiFi issue.
