Stuttering while streaming

Postby kimme » Sun Aug 23, 2009 8:59 pm

Hi

I have a problem using PS3 Media Server.

When i'm streaming video to my PS3 the image stutters on frequently based moments...

it's not that the pc has to transcode anything as i use mpg movies (720p or 1080p) but even when i'm viewing a divx movie i have the same problem...

CPU load & memory usage is minimal.

the only thing i see is that my network load gets a flatline when it's stuttering...

i've made a screenshot of this: http://img30.imageshack.us/i/haperingenps3ms2.jpg/

Specs:

AMD Athlon 7750 DualCore 2.70Ghz
4Gb Ram
6x WD 160gb Sata in Raid5 config


Does anyone have a solution for this problem?

Thanks in advance!

sorry didn't read that topic...

2) PC= gigabit ethernet wired on linksys wrt160n -- PS3= wireless but only 4 meters away from the router... PS3 gives 97% signal.
6) http://rapidshare.com/files/270666590/debug.log.html

ps3 wireless means 54Mbit/s which you won't get in real life. So forget about hd-videos over wireless...

i just saw a complete movie in 1080p without one problem until the last 15 minutes... so normally it should be possible... and when the stream should be to heavy for wireless it should have a little stutter but it shouldn't last for 5 minutes...
and the fact that it's wireless connected doesn't explain the flatline in the networkload that i have on my server.

It's worthwhile to note that the PS3's wifi NIC sucks, and it also has issues with buffering PS3 compatible files since FW 2.40. If possible wire the PS3 to the router.

yes i will do that when i find an extra router but that still doesn't explain the flatline on the server as shown in the screenshot...

Why router? Buy much cheaper switch for 3Euro and that's all.Another router will give you more configuration problems when 2 routers are in one subnet or then you need 2 separate subnets. Because of that use switch which is configuration-free and almost for free ;)

i have a couple of switches over here but i don't think i can make it work like that...

my internet comes in next to the ps3
there's a switch that splits the internet to my HD Decoder and the router.
There's only one cable from the switch to the router so i'll need another router next to the swith and configure it to work together with my other router to get the ps3 on the same network.

or am i wrong on this one?
