Huge amounts of stuttering and A/V out of sync

Postby Judgegeo » Mon Apr 27, 2009 5:12 pm

Running on a Ubuntu 9.04 on a Core 2 Duo @ 1.66Ghz with 2Gb RAM and experiencing huge amounts of stuttering to the point where watching videos is impossible, every couple of seconds the video will freeze, audio will continue for a short time before pausing, then video catches up. This repeats over and over.

I'm running latest Mplayer/Mencoder, FFmpeg was installed from repo

Conky shows my CPU hardly being used, it never goes above 6% even when watching video??

Audio Bitrate is set to 256
Maximum Bandwidth 14mb/s
Video Quality: keyint=25:vqmax=8:vqmin=3 /* Low quality, Low-end CPU or HD Wifi Transcoding */

Any ideas??

Yeah.. you really should tell us what kind of video you are trying to stream.

Can be related to the network.
Are you wired or using wifi ?
The PS3 wifi chip is quite crapy, so I decided to use a good old cable and no lacks/desync since then.

Wireless, I get about 80% signal on both my laptop and the PS3.
