for those of you experiencing the intermittent problems regarding stuttering video when using USB drives or mounted network drives, it seems that a really simple fix has resolved all stuttering and playback issues:
Go to [color=#FF0000]Nito TV[/color]>>[color=#FF0000]Settings[/color]>>[color=#FF0000]Mplayer Settings[/color]>>[color=#FF0000]increase cache to 6 to 8 MB[/color]
this absolutely solved the problem in my case.
Hope it helps.
There is no option in my MPlayer to increase the cache from 6 to 8mb. There is a toggle that allows me to change the “minutes”, but even if I increase this to various settings, it does not change the stuttering of the playback.
Works fine with DVD images and EyeTV files when I upload them on ATV or put them on a USB stick or USB HD directly connected to ATV.
When I stream them from my iMac the video is shuttering as described above. Streaming AVI Files (Divx/MP3) and other formats works fine.
Thought my LAN might be to slow but I can stream iTunes store HD videos w/o problem resp. videos from my iTunes library on my iMac.
Don’t fine the option to increase cache.
The possibility to stream is exactly the reason why I bought the software.
Hope there is a solution.
