Tried John Wick 2, in Plex DIRECT stream…
damn…does not play well…
Tried it in VLC, worse.
Not sure if its a DATA transfer issue (need to up the cache size to “download” before playing) or what…
Might make a quick test mount with these settings to try it WITHOUT the cache
Edit: Using the Console on PLEX, the READ AHEAD size does NOT get lower than its actual read ahead. So I have a feeling its my computer cannot handle the bitrate. Let me try it on the Android TV.
EDIT2: It was my Computer unable to play the file. PLayed JOhn Wick 2 to the TV and the frame rate is perfect. I am getting some pausing here and there. Unsure if its internet related at this point or file or cache size related. I do not get that much onscreen information from the android TV/PLEX. I can not say it is X amount of seconds or that it pauses for X amount of seconds. But it is clearly unwatchable.
I will do further testing to see if internet related or cache related
I have a feeling it is INTERNET related as Truilla is saying I need 180mbit connection for this file to work properly and of course WIRED on the SONY XBR is only 100mbit. So will try and switch to WIFI 5G tomorrow and test again. Just got through 3 minutes of non interruption. Wish the TV had true 1gbit LAN. Might look for an external ethernet that works. Because if it is the built in issue, I will be switching.
EDIT3: couldn’t wait. Connected to 5g wifi (which theoretically has a higher bandwidth. Did a speed test through built in web browser in android TV. and pauses similarly. (more actually)
ACTIVITY Streams: 1 stream (1 direct play) | Bandwidth: 185.2 Mbps (LAN: 185.2 Mbps)
So basically the CACHE is fine, its the stupid piece of shit network connection on my TV =(…Unless I can somehow up the “read ahead”
