SFTP slow to start


I normally use Plex on my remote server but thought I would give Infuse a try, I am connecting to my shares remotely via SFTP but it’s much slower to use than what I am used to. Once the film starts it plays back fine, also scrubbing through the video is slow.

Is this normal? My server is very fast and also has great bandwidth so I’m not sure what the issue is?

What is your ping/latency to the remote share? I have similar issues with high latency (>300ms) servers. I can download files quite fast, but infuse is slow to stream them for some reason.

My ping to the server is 18ms, I also noticed buffering last night, compared to when I use Plex which is faster to start and doesn’t buffer.
