This thread may be interest you:
Though I'm not sure what content you are streaming would have such a high bit-rate. That is more bandwidth than even a Blu-ray movie. It sounds like your encodes may be needlessly bloated.
The 100Mpbs should be more than capable of handling the stream, thats the issue.
Most of my blu-rays I convert over using MakeMKV from the original, I keep the originals in a nice case, the digitals I stream.
After they are raw stripped "loseless" they end up being between 15-25GB a piece (I strip any additional languages out, extras, menus, directors commentary etc)
Even at 25GB, for a 2 hr movie means the data rate needs to keep up with :
3.55 MBPS only sustained
100mbps network should have NO issue with that. So the question is, why can't it?
I know it isn't the NAS's problem, because i've speed tested it to be saturating the capability of 1gbps.
I know it isn't the Network drop, because I've saturated the capability of 1gbps disconnecting the Panasonic Blu-Ray and plugging in my laptop to run benchmarks.
Then proving the MKVs work perfect over USB2.0 . . . so I know it's not the decoding codec or capability of the CPU .
So it's 100% the issue of the network streaming. I've pinned the root cause.
Has anyone been successful network streaming BIG MKVs (15+GB??)
