I picked up a PI today & installed RasPlex but I could use some help configuring the PI to prevent stuttering.
I'm using a tiny USB wifi dongle.
My Plex server (i5 core) has a 1:1 MKV I created from my the matrix bluray disc & gigabit internet.
The PI can't handle playing this obviously. So I dropped the bitrate down to 1MBps @ 1080p. Obviously the graphics look bad but this was the fastest way I determined to get smooth playback.
When I change the bitrate on the PI Plex client is that forcing the PI to transcode or is it forcing the server to do so?
I tried upping the bitrate to 4MBps @ 1080p but the video stuttered badly. Just looking for other possible solutions. I'm not ready to give up on the PI yet! Thx
