I noticed that I am still experiencing some freezing and stuttering playback issues issues occasionally with Emby Theater for Xbox One. For the most part it will correct itself after a few seconds instead of completely freezing up and needed to be restarted. The stuttering is happening during direct streaming playback as well. I tried changing the max bitrate from auto to low enough to where it began to transcode but still noticed the stuttering. It only happened twice during an entire movie but It is still enough to be annoying.
These are the media details for the file I most recently experienced the stutter:
Bit depth8 bit
Sample rate48000 Hz
Bit depth24 bit
TitleEng DTS 5.1 Default
TitleEng Default Forced
Do you think it could be a hardware issue on my end? I suppose my HTPC could be getting a little dated. Do you think if I switch the server from my:
AMD Athlon II X2 250 Processor 3.00Ghz
4.00 GB RAM
Intel® Core i7 CPU 960 @ 3.20GHz 3.19 GHz
12.00 GB RAM
that it might help the issue?
Also just to note, while waiting for the emby app to come to the xbox store I used plex temporarily just to have something that worked. As much as I hate their app and software, I never exeprienced this problem. I will attached any logs or screen shots you ask for. Thanks in advance for your help.
p.s. I also noticed that some of the stuttering during my direct stream playback on my local network happened while one of my remote users was transcoding a movie. I have a 150 Meg of broadband and hard wired Gig ethernet switch from my server to my xbox one.
Thanks again and sorry for the long post.
