Been a lurker on here reading through the variety of stuttering threads to no avail. Currently going through an upgrade of Java as a last ditch hope.
The funny thing I've been finding is that some 720p TV rips I have been watching stream without batting an eyelid. .MKV too so thats transcoding. Yet I've been watching some DVD sourced material, 480p with 2 channel 192kbps audio, and the thing freezes like a crazy thing. Oddly I switched to Tversity to see if an alternative program had any joy and the stuttering appears in the same places. Its pretty much universal across the entire series, plus another unrelated series, so not appearing to be an isolated issue.
Posting in here in the hope of canvassing opinion and experiences from the crowd. Usually prefer to be a self helper but now getting to the limit of my knowledge.
