Video Tearing in Web Client

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

fantastic how MB3's coming along!! 

 

just wanted to make you aware not sure if it's just me but since the adding of the transcoding options etc i seem to get slight tearing in the video on the web client, it doesn't skip/stutter at all and it seems to be any video extension type, it may be my setup but i have tried changing settings but still get it now and again. it's only a slight tearing just thought i'd let you know. tried all variations of transcoding server side, high cpu/low/auto and web client 720p - 1.5 upto 10Mbps.

 

Current Versions

MB3 Server: 3.0.5131.34392

Browser: Chrome 32.0.1700.95

 

Running on Hardware:

OS: Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials

CPU: Intel i7 4770K running idle apart from mb3 streaming

I have noticed this too in the web client.  I am using Chrome also.  What is your client computer?  Is it your server?

 

It works great in MB Theater.

I also started noticing this after the latest update from Media Browser server

 

Current Versions

MB3 Server: Version 3.0.5131.18923

Browser: Chrome 32.0.1700.77

 

Client MacBook Pro laptop over wireless N (450mb)

 

I'm able to watch stuff at 720p 1.5Mbs but it has some noticeable artifacts here and there, anything above that it's almost completely unwatchable.  I have not tried any other browsers besides Chrome yet.

I've decided to move onto the Dev builds, I figure I'm always itching for an update from MB3 and I always seem to have an issue with something (always minor) that I might be able to help a bit with some of my bug reports.

 

On Dev build Version 3.0.5132.25302 I seem to have no issue with the tearing using 5Mbs or lower on both 720p and 1080p videos that I've noticed so far.

that's purely a coincidence then because there's nothing that's changed in two days that could affect that

Just updated.  Didn't auto update like the rest.

 

Not sure how much we'll get to watch tonight, hopefully a show or two and I'll be able to report back.  Thanks

 

Over the last couple of days I've noticed some pausing and some video tearing but not too much, I've been messing with a few things on my end here and there to see if it's something on my end.  It's not every video giving me issues, so I've just been tweaking a few things here and there.

The tearing has improved a lot over the last couple of dev updates.  I can now watch things mostly at 5mb's without any issues.  Anything over that though and it's right back to the choppy viewing.

 

Now the issue I'm having is I'm getting frequent pausing again, I was watching an hour long TV show the other night and I ended up having to keep changing the quality to unpause the show, it didn't start happening until later on in the show (Maybe 40 into the 60 minutes)  though where when it happened a few weeks ago it was happening consistently 30 seconds into the show.

 

But that's probably an issue for another thread  :D
