Jerky Playback on some of my blu ray rips

Hi,

For some of my bluray rips (makemkv) i have really jerky playback especially for the first example.
I have tried wired and wifi - tried to change resolution and nothing helps. I have a Synology DS411 as server
The below file plays well on my samsung tv and my TVIX mediaplayer (replaced by my ATV4)
I have uploaded both files to your drop box (sorry i forgot the ticket no as i started uploading before writing and it takes some time to upload 7GB).

Example one

Sorry about that. Based on a quick glance at these specs, it appears this may is likely due to the interlaced nature of these videos. Unfortunately interlaced videos can’t use the Apple TV’s HW decode option, and tend to require quite a bit more oomph in order to decode.

One thing you may try is disabling the ‘Deinterlacing’ option in the Video section of the Playback Menu (swipe down while a video is playing) to see if things improve.

The upcoming ATV5 should pack a bit more punch, and have no problem with these files (with or without deinterlacing enabled).

Thanks for the answer. That i would never have figured out.
Hope it is better with the new atv5 , as i don’t want to re-encode the files.
