stuttering while streaming mkv files

Post by poker » Sat Aug 25, 2012 8:49 am

hi i have an ok pc

8 gig mushkin silverline
7200rpm 32mb cache hdd

while streaming hd content it runs ok but tends to skip/stutter after awhile until i pause and unpause

any advice?

I am connected to my router via my onboard realtek at 1gigabit and stream wireless to my ps3 using a draytek 2800 router in mixed 11b+11g+11n mode.

When the stutter happens, open UMS on the status page; is the transcoding buffer all empty?

If it is, at least you can forget the wireless being your problem.. for now. Which encoder is your primary?
Do you need subtitles? If not, you can run tsMuxeR, which won't stress your computer doing the transcoding.
If you need subtitles, and run MEncoder, you could try to lower the video quality under Common transcode settings.

It's a trial and error thing.

UMS 5.3.0 - Java 8 update 60 - Windows 10 Pro 64bit
Intel Core i7-3770 - 8GB RAM
PS3 Slim 120GB
