1080p/60 - looking for streaming player

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am struggling to find anything that will play 1080p/60 smoothly other than on a pc. I have a hd camcorder that I want to be able to stream files to my 58" plasma. My best bet was the ps3, but even running the MST file locally from the hard drive is jittery. It seems that when the bitrate gets up to 30-35 it starts to choke. Anyone have luck with this on the ps3 or any devices that can decode with better success? I really dont want to compress to watch these videos. The quality is too awesome

On a well configured network... or from attached storage... a Dune media player will play most any file. PERFECTLY!

I would also like to know if there is any current media player/streamer that has the power to handle 1080p at 50/60fps.... When I look at the box for e.g. Boxee and similar, they only seem to support 1080p at 24p or 30p......

Boxee will play 1080p/60 smoothly if you demux your MTS (or M2TS) file, then remux to MKV via MKVMerge. I've been doing this to my Sony DSC-HX9V camera's videos with good results. Also, the few Realtek 1185- (Pivos AIOS, Mede8er 450X2) or 1186-based (HiMedia HD900B, Micca EP600 G2) streamers I've tried have played 1080p/60 files as is and in MKV container.

Forgive me, I haven't had to do much file converting. What is the gain of demuxing then putting in the mkv container? If you aren't taking anything out or compressing how does it improve performance?

your best bet for 1080/60 from camcorder is going with a boxee box or a realtek based player. they seem to handle them better then the sigma based players. Your best option is cut some samples and upload to like mediafire and ask nicely for people with units to test them. As not all camcorders record the same way, I have seen plenty of times even when different models from a company will show different results on a player

There shouldn't be any difference, but for whatever reason, my camcorder 1080p/60 files play smoothly via Boxee Box in MKV, while as MTS directly, they stutter. Agree that Realtek 1185 or 1186-based streamers play 1080p/60 MTS or MKV files smoothly.

So I got a boxee and it was horrible. It wouldnt even load the video without huge pauses in between. I was wired via Giabit, and I can stream the same video on PC just fine.

Any suggestions on what player to try next?

Try using DLNA instead of streaming from SMB (windows networking).

Install Serviio on your PC and then add the DLNA server by browsing UPnP sources on Boxee.

High bitrate videos and SMB are tricky sometimes if your network and server aren't flawless, ideally the least troublesome are high speed SMB linux NAS from the likes of Synology or QNAP.

Sorry I left out that I was using a synology nas. I thought I was using dlna. If I still owned the boxes I would double check.

I will keep that in mind for the next try though.
