Need help - slow speed

Post by Kosilin » Sat Mar 19, 2011 10:06 pm

Hi!

Maybe somebody can help me?)

Here is my connection: d-link router connected with Philips tv 32PFL8404H/60 via Ethernet cable, and my iMac wireless connected to wi-fi net with twonky server on it. Every media is on my iMac.

I have little issue, that makes my nervous - speed of every video after ~5 minutes is getting slower but sound is going with normal speed, so I have to press pause then rewind a little and then video goes with the right speed!

Try to connect to the router via Ethernet cable, and see if that helps

FWIW
It sounds like the video buffer on your tv is being depleted, due to high bitrates of the source
Which is most likely being caused by the lack of bandwidth when using wifi

Or it could be caused, by how the video was encoded,
There are a lot of things each client device does and does not like,
but yet will still play them, but just not effectively

I can tell you from experience with wifi and video streaming
that G will stream DVD movies just fine, but BD streaming with ANY product will do as you describe
This is further compounded by how much usage the wifi is using from other people, etc.
Not to mention interference from thigns like Microwaves, Cell phones, etc.

Note:
I'm talking about native file streaming, transcoding, could offer some help in this area
Such that, you could transcode, to something more wifi freindly in regards to bandwidth
