View Full Version : Randomly choppy playback/freezes every 4-5 seconds

It's not a bandwith issue and it's not a CPU or memory issue with the PC. I have plenty of free space on the HDD and am using a solid state drive for the OS (Win 7) with 1TB internal SATA drive for the media.

TV is a Samsung C650. Video isn't being encoded as transcode folder isn't getting any bigger. Very minimal activity elsewhere on the PC, no windows updates, AV disabled.

It seems to get to the same place in the movie and all of a sudden stops "Preparing to play" plays 5 seconds of film and then rinse and repeat.

Very annoying.

At first I thought it was Win 7 memory cashe but on rebooting with 3.5GB of free memory the same thing happens.

Great software but considering not buying at this time due to shortcomings.

What is your network configuration (wired, wireless and what speed)? Also, what is the details on the file you are trying to play (codec, bitrate, etc...)?

For details on the file, please use the "Get FFmpeg Information" command available by right-clicking on the file in Mezzmo.

We currently have one confirmed issue with possible playback interruption on some devices in some network configurations, that we're fixing right now. Maybe it's the same issue, maybe not.
