Playback Pausing by itself every 20 seconds or so

I am on Emby Server 3.0.6400.0. Upgraded today and this problem existed before the upgrade. I upgraded thinking it might have been related, but I guess not.

 

Essentially, during playback the video pauses itself every 10 - 20 seconds. It's not just a freeze. If I look at the video status it is truly paused. Then it plays itself again.

 

I have tried wireless and over Ethernet. Same result.

 

I don't notice any difference between playback client (AndroidTV via Nexus Player / Nvidia Shield, Android, or PC Browser)

 

I have included the logs but i'm not seeing anything very telling. Please let me know if there is anything else I can pull to investigate. 

 

I have included several logs. The only error I'm identifying regularly is pasted below.

Hi, in these particular logs it's happening because the transcoding is not going fast enough to sustain a playable video. It appears to be burning in subtitles, which is a very stressful activity and can cause something like that. can you try a video without subtitles and compare? or try something with text-based subtitles instead of pgs/dvd graphical subtitles. Thanks.

That's an interesting assessment. I'll give it a shot and let you know. It appears that in this specific video the pgs/dvd subtitles aren't implemented very smoothly either. I'll see if I can find a better sample.
