I have a serious issue with video playback - it stutters. I’ve tried connecting to my TV with wifi, and with a homeplug. It stutters with both. I am not going to run an RJ45 cable from the My Cloud to the TV, and I want to be able to watch video on any device I connect to my network.
Color movies (not even Blu Ray) have a tougher time than BW movies, so it appears to be bandwidth related. BUT, I might be the only device on the network, and it still stutters. I have even tried being in the same room with the My Cloud, to no benefit. I have all my movies in MP4 format, so that shouldn’t be a problem. My network broadcasts in B/G/N. My Blu Ray player is a Panasonic
I can change the encoding of the movies if I have to. Are there any solutions to this issue? It’s been discussed by many, but no solutions. I’ve also tried “casting” videos to my Chromecast, via my Android phone, but the problem gets worse. I’d like to use my iPad, too, but first things first. Any ideas?
