Star Trek (2009) - 1080p.mkv
Star Trek (2009) - 720p.mp4
Star Trek (2009) - 480p.mp4...

Hmm try connecting your network hardware as follows if it's not already like this:

router -> switch (2nd flr) -> switch (3rd flr)

Also, post make/model of your switches.

Just to confirm, are the file copies 100 Mbps or 100 MB/s? 100 MB/s is equivalent to around 800 Mbps.

Actually, I believe the more sensitive types have mentioned video is never smooth. I guess it's just luck of the draw whether you notice it or not. :p

I do it for playback on mobile devices.

I actually keep multiple copies on my server:

VIDEO_TS: DVD; MKV: BD (movie only, playback with...

Possible but there are restrictions. Handbrake does not recognize the VIDEO_TS folder that DVD Decrypter generates as a valid DVD folder structure. You'd need to set File Splitting to None in order...

Having separate VIDEO_TS folders for each episode actually makes adding to Handbrake more tedious as instead of a DVD/ISO with 2-4 episodes each, you now have to add each episode folder one by one.

That's been an issue with Netflix on Silverlight from long ago. I don't think Microsoft ever fixed it.

Yup, I know. Actually, even Handbrake 0.9.9 allows selecting folders as source. I use this for my DVD folder rips (with Add all). Alas, most of my rips are in ISO format (with multiple episodes in...

That also depends on the source and software. Last I encoded some VC-1 BD rips in Handbrake Nightly, it appeared to be doing decoding in software. Either that or hardware decode acceleration works...

I use QuickSync (Balanced, QP 20) and I was getting ~150 fps with Game of Thrones so it's still a lot quicker than your typical x264 fast or medium encode. I just queue up the episodes and leave it...

Given most smartphones and tablets still have pretty slow storage (and are often limited to USB 2.0), I wouldn't be at all surprised if just the simple act of copying four 1GB movies to your device...

Personally, I'd scale back the 840 Pro to an MX100 and put the difference towards a Core i5. At a budget of $1000, there's really no good reason to stick to a fake quad instead of getting an actual...
