I am using Infuse (v5.6.9) on AppleTV (4k). I’m streaming videos from my iMac. AppleTV & iMac communicate through ethernet-wired CPL (Netgear CPL2000).
I’ve tested link performance (replaced AppleTV with another Mac and tested throughput using iperf: I get ~250mbps). Also tested file transfer between the two links using SMB, results are consistent with iperf measurement - I get ~200mbps.
Now here’s my issue: streaming using SMB from my Mac to my Apple TV does not go beyond ~25mbps. OK for HD movies but mostly fails with UHD/HEVC files. I’m using the “JellyFish” samples to test drive my setup.
Funny thing: if I set up a DLNA (using Plex Server on my iMac), I have a far better throughput (I can reach up to 150mbps). I’ve tried disabling packet signing for SMB but still get no improvement. Any idea ? Something I’m doing wrong ?
Note: I’m using “standard” sharing from macOS - no tweaks, no specific settings.
Thanks for your help!
