After running through various config changes (setting bandwidth limits, specifying max buffer), I simply tried the previous version 1.70.0 and the studdering stopped instantly.
I tried this on another host and found the same results. 1.72 would studder mkvs and the 1.70 would not.
I used the same config in all attempts:
- Code: Select all
# Default: empty, which means PMS will automatically pick port 5001.
thumbnails = true
thumbnail_seek_pos = 300
mencoder_ass = true
folders = /mnt/media/tv,/mnt/media/movies,/mnt/media/music
hide_videosettings = true
hide_enginenames = true
audiochannels = 6
image_thumbnails = true
mencoder_fontconfig = true
mencoder_ass_defaultstyle = true
I ran a diff on the 2 PS3.conf files in each versions renderers dir and there were no differences other than commented items.
Is there something fundamental I am missing from the 1.72 setup to support better mkv playback?
