I have the following setup:
- iPhone XR (since Friday ^^)
- Synology DS215j with 512 MB RAM
- AVM Fritz!Box 7490 router with WiFi AC
- the room in question is about 5 meters away from the router with no walls in between
- latest Infuse
Now I wanted to stream a 4K file to my iPhone using Infuse. Of course I know I cannot expect a too great result because of the iPhone XR‘s relatively low resolution. My motivation is rather pragmatical: I don‘t want to downsize (convert) each and every 4K file I have for this use case.
In the end it simply didn‘t work. The loading indicator kept spinning very long and then the video run smoothly. But after some seconds the loading began again.
So here are my questions:
So I assume the buffer can‘t be filled fast enough. But with WiFi AC standard it should be possible to do this, no?
Or is the iPhone the problem?
I guess the Synology should not be much of a problem because playing via ethernet cable works fine. Or is there an option to do the transcoding maybe on the NAS?
Thanks in advance.
