I've been testing the playback quality and consistency for Recorded Media through my HDHOMERUN Connect. My roku 2 can play my local dvds and bluray files without any issues. However, I recently recorded a "Track and Field" sports program and it constantly buffers/loads every 1-3 minutes when I try to play it back on my roku 2.
Emby is set to:
-Convert to MP4 on the fly
-Preserve original video & audio
-Transcoding is set to "Auto" for the thread count
-"Throttling" is enabled for Transcoding
Roku is set to:
-30 Mbps UHD for the Video Quality Stream (i changed this to 20 Mbps but with no effect)
S7 Edge is set to
-20 Mbps HD for the Video Quality Stream (also successfully tested this as 30 Mbps for the stream)
-I have a 50 Mbps connection and my roku 2 is wired to a gigabit Ethernet port on my Router.
-S7 Edge was on a Wireless AC connection with a link rate of 400 Mbps plus
Now I tried playing back the same "Track & Field" recording on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge through the Emby Android App and I had no problems whatsoever.
I was reading on similar issues reported and i'm thinking the issue might be because the roku 2 can't play back the native framerate so its still transcoding even though its in a streaming-friendly format but if that is the case, I want to know how to go about fixing it.
The 1057pm file should be the roku playback log while the 1054pm file should be the S7 Edge playback log.
