I'm running PS3MediaServer 1.10.51 on a Windows 7 machine having a I7-920 CPU and 6GB of DDR3 RAM. Streaming 720p MKV is working well, but 1080p is lagging after a while. The buffer status on transcoding buffer status is decreasing when playback on my PS3.
Maybe I need to do some extra setup on the server. For "Mpeg2 video quality setting" i choose "Best quality". I've tried to select "Good quality", but that does not work. You can see my PS3MediaServer setup here: http://tinypic.com/r/2ypm7uo/7
. During the playback the PC is only using 20% of the CPU and 2GB of RAM totally. 20-40% of my 100 Mbps ethernet network connection is used on the PC.
Here you can see a snip of the status page during playback: http://tinypic.com/r/n3ketc/7
. Maybe the peak bitrate is to high - if so, how can I decrease it? I can see 15 minutes of the current 1080p movie without any problem, but then the playback is pausing and depending on how long I let it pause, it will pause again immediately when starting the movie again.
I hope someone can help me!
