Skipping during fast movement

Postby jdavet » Mon Jun 08, 2009 5:19 am

I am loving PS3 Media Server. I finally have everything running almost as it should.

The only time that there is skipping is when there is really fast movement on screen (for example, on any movie based on a Marvel comic, right after the 20th Century Fox part, it begins to skip as the pages are being flipped during the Marvel animation).

Is there some type of setting I can set in order to stop that from happening? Or could it be because I have a crappy computer! :)

Here is all of my comp's info:
1-Intel Pentium 4 - 3.06Ghz; 1.87GB of ram; running Vista 32-bit; Using PMS v.1.11.339
2-PS3 is connected via wifi
3-Mencoder is being used for transcoding

Crappy computer AND wifi network :mrgreen:

If you're just streaming you're stuck. If you're transcoding you can try to minimize the stuttering by
a) Specifying a Maximum Bandwidth under the Common Transcode settings (start with 15mbps for Wifi and then adjust from there)
b) Decreasing the Video Quality setting under the Common Transcode settings
I provide NO application support via PM or email, so please post your question to the forum per the Forum Rules.
