Please accept my apologies if this question has been answered many times before but I failed to find any previous discussion on this topic using a search and I don't have the stamina to read all the eleventy gazillion previous posts in this forum...


I am able to play FLAC files on my Oppo BDP-95EU via a wifi connection to my PC, using JRiver Media Center as a DLNA server. However, I have just tried playing one of the same FLAC files copied to a USB dongle that is plugged into the front panel of the Oppo and I get random pauses of several seconds, during which the elapsed time counter comes to a halt. During the first four minutes of this track I have had about four of these pauses.


Can anyone offer any explanation?

Try asking this in the owner's thread: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1311806/official-oppo-bdp-95-owners-thread


USB is usually more reliable than network, not less. Could you try a different stick and see if you get the same results? (You're using a standard USB thumb drive, right? A dongle would be something else).


It's possible the DLNA server is transcoding the file to something the player likes better, but we would need to research the details.

Hi Bill,

The DLNA server was configured to make no changes to the audio file format and the Oppo display on my TV identified the file as a FLAC for both the DLNA and USB inputs.


In my experience, there are loads of different names for that memory thingy with a USB connector (including USB dongle, though I am aware that 'dongle' also has a more specific meaning in the IT world). I suspect I use a different name every time I refer to one...



However, I have just tried another USB Flash Drive (see what I did there?) and it worked fine with the same FLAC file. I guess not all JumpDrives have the same capabilities, though I have only ever been aware of capacity and speed as the primary parameters. I would not have thought that audio required a high speed Memory Stick but perhaps I am mistaken.
