Problem; A couple of days ago a mate of mine introduced this imba software for me and showed it on TV that it could stream .mkv (720p files/1080p files) which i loved, since i've been waiting for some rocksolid stuff like this, and i hurried home to install it. Right of the bat i tried with wireless connection which i feared would be causing problem 'due to the crap actually being wireless. Yea, it did some staggering and a bit to much to be liveable so i went to bed and went to the shop today to pick up a 15m TP-cable. Now my baby is plugged into my router(which i suspect is a huge piece of crap.)
What's new? It didn't stagger in the beginnning, as a matter of fact it took decent time before it staggered ~6min into the movie instead of the very first big colored scene, did some random changing to like transcode buffer max size 600/"Enhanced multicore support for H264 HD content".. and some other stuff, didn't get much better and did some other random stuff and then i eventually changed it back when i've spoken to my friend who said he had not changed anything at all.
did some forumsearching and found some sweet changes to apply like putting a cap on "Maximum bandwith in Mbit/s" to 30 (deafault :0) and putting the AC3 Audio bitrate to 384 and also audio channels to 2channels stereo since alot of threads implied that the posters of those threads ROUTER might be giving them hard time when it's set to "0".
What happened? It worked for alot longer time !.. seem'ed to be fixed and i was wheeling back and forth in my apartment of happiness when it once again staggered at random places in my 'good will hunting' movie... MEH!!!!! (altho it made it pass all the other scenes that have been causing problem before..)
I'm out of ideas so im asking you guys if you got any good ideas... I still think it is my router, but i hope there was a godly setting i could use that don't force me to buy a new one... like putting Mbit to 69,7508 and 384 with enhanced multicore support or something....
Quick introduction on my system;
Intel Quad 660(2,4ghz) running at 2,7 ghz (300x9).. stable
4 gig memory, ~3,25 physical avaible after gfx card steals away some
GFX is ASUS 8800 GTS yadayada card
im running this on a win XP professional with service pack 2 (yea im lazy)
Router is a Netgear ”WGR614v6”.
Overall my PC is healthy, with low cpu temps and such since i got a monstrous schyte mounted on it and I hardly feel that it can be my PC that is to slow to transcode 720p when P4's almost can do 1080p's.
My playstation 3 is updated with the latest online firmware and i haven't been pounding on it with a jackhammer so can't be that either imo.
ROUTER IS THE EVIL? OR IS IT?
