Tried it all.. Tearing Hair out... Stuttering

Postby adesantUK » Sat Dec 24, 2011 4:05 am

Ok, so i ditched my old square xbox for a PS3 after seeing my friends work supposedly flawlessly.

I am in a wired network, 85mbps homeplug (mains) from mac to ps3 in another room. ( i doubt the plugs are knackered although cant rule it out)

Dixv/avi/mp4 you name it, all works ok for a few mins, then stutters, sometimes it goes away for another 5 or ten minutes but usually it comes back, and becomes unwatchable. This NEVER happened with my ancient xbox lol.

1. Tried setting bandwidth to reported connection speed from PS3 connection test. (the speed was not in my debug log/trace)
2. Tried disabling upnp
3. Tried setting full/half and auto duplex on PS3
4. Tried 4 cores and 2 cores on ms
5. Tried buffer 400 and 600
6. Tried putting a switch in so there is a pretty much direct connection from mac to ps3 (so it isnt my router)
7. Tried pulling hair out
8. No other media servers running.

Whats weird sometimes its the audio that seems to dip first, probably nothing.

At this rate i'll be going back to the black cube of xbox-ness

Here is my rather extensive log.. I have no or little idea what it all means.. I have cut alot out that seemed very samey..

Note that realistic homeplug performance is around 50mbps and can be much worse depending on the wiring.

Re: Tried it all.. Tearing Hair out... Stuttering

Well i tested this particular movie at my buddies house this morning, same issue with him.. plays great from usb stick in PS but streaming, it jumps up to about 20-30mb from 3.5 and stutters like hell.. We have tried all sorts of settings with PS3MS and Medialink and the only way we can seem to get it faultless is to transcode through Medialink.

I also have borrowed some 200mb/s homeplugs and tested it, so it's not the homeplugs, infact i did even conect my mac directly to the PS3 this morning, same issue.

This really is bugging me, and my wife lol.

It does it on most other avi files not just this particular one, like i say, good for 5 mins, then the bandwidth goes up and the stuttering returns.

There were reports about issues with the packaged menocder in the latest release for osx (viewtopic.php?f=7&t=12197&start=30#p61437).
You're issue sounds to me like the CPU is struggling while transcoding the video. Does the video work correctly for a while after having paused it? I suspect your buffer being empty; if the video is being paused, it lets pms fill the buffer. After a while it will be empty again (which provokes the peeks in the bandwidth you're describing)
If you always wanted to have your most recent videos at the top of the folder in the ps3 or wished you could group all videos with the same genre in one folder, have a look at pms-mlx

Interesting, although do you think my CPU is really struggling since i have 4 cores and 8gb RAM?

it only seems to do this on avi files (which are treated at mpeg-4)

And yes, if i pause, rewind a bit, it gets ok for a while.. then messes up again..

Any suggested action?
