Any ideas? Something is off with a codec I guess.
I'm following this discussion as well. How about DTS?

I started getting random video playback issues in the past few months. I am on JRiver 21, but haven't been able to pinpoint the problem. Seems like if I stop playback and then start it again, it works perfectly for the entire rest of the movie.

I too moved to Windows 10 a couple of months ago, but don't recall exactly when the video playback studdering (almost like a "bad buffering" issue) started, but it was within the last couple of months. I've tried power cycling all network hardware, restarting the server running JRiver, and the HTPC always gets shut down between uses. Made sure all Windows updates were there, etc. Seems like no matter what I try, it still does it.

Everything is uncompressed MKV across gigabit networking. My server and HTPC are quite powerful actually (overkill for what most people use). Playback is typically flawless for 10-20 minutes, then this happens, then I press stop on the remote (JRiver jumps back to the movie selection screen), and select "Watch" again. It picks up where it left off, and the whole rest of the movie will playback flawlessly.

Not saying that my issue is related, but this is something that started for me in the past couple of months, and it might correlate to the Windows 10 upgrade myself. I will try some Dolby and Dolby TrueHD tonight and see if I can get it to fail in similar ways...

I downloaded a Dolby True HD demo disk and every track that has the Dolby True HD logo in the bottom right is stuttery. Dolby Digital tracks, stereo, and everything else, DTS, and DTS-X work fine. It's only Dolby True HD that is broken. (audio is fine, video really jumpy, dropping frames, unwatchable)

My issue is on an overbuilt machine as well.

I should have provided this info originally but I'm on a
I7 -4770K
Fury X video card

playing over HDMI bit streaming to a Denon AVR x7200WA.

Video is on Red October High Quality, (but it doesn't matter - ALLLLLLLL standard skips too)

To make it even more interesting - last night I figured out Windows Media player stutters on the same Dolby Digital True HD demo clips, as does VLC, as does Kodi.

So it's NOT just J-River. It's something else - and I have no idea what's doing it.
