Hi guys, I have a blu ray ripping question. It's probably common knowledge but I'm just stumbling on it now.
First some quick background. I've been access my blu ray rips on my NAS using a WDTV Live for a few years, and have not had any problems. I've used Handbrake on extremely large files, but for the most part they are full BD rips. I also have a couple of Firesticks that I thought would be fun to put Kodi on so that I could also access the NAS with them, but got a lot of stutters on a handful of full BD rips. The WDTV was wired but the Sticks were wifi, so I got a ethernet adapter which took care of the problem on a few of the rips, but not all of them. On one, the movie Serenity, I went ahead and used handbrake on it, and it now plays fine. Ok, so no problem, I can just do that for the rest, but one thing I just noticed is that every one of them that's having problems is listed as VC-1 instead of H.264...I'm guessing that THAT is not a coincidence. Is that something that is known or is common? Would running those through Handbrake without any compression change them to H264 and then they would play...or am I just going to have to play around and see what works? Any thoughts?
