Hi MediaBrowser Community!
First post, but I've been using the mediabrowser standalone and apps pretty much since their release - I've been a long time Win MC user and I'm loving the direction things are headed with MB (I'm almost ready to ditch MC entirely!)
The issue I'm having is::
When streaming media to the windows store app remotely via wifi or 3G, playback is stopped frequently with the buffering message. This occurs on both a surface tablet and a Toshiba encore tablet.
I have the transcode quality settings in the app set to low however changing this setting does not seem to affect either the picture quality or the frequency of buffering delays.
Edit: The window 8.1 store app is the latest version as is the server is running the latest Version 3.0.5192.19560
In order to test whether the settings were actually changing anything, I tried to play the same (low bitrate) file on the same device with the streaming settings to max and then on min.. Both resulted in an excellent picture quality but constant buffering.
I have included both ffmpeg log files below marked max and min.
Incidentally, when I play the same file via the MB web client (chrome), I can dial down the quality and play the file without any buffering and noticeably poorer picture quality.
Am I missing a setting or something which is preventing the server from recognising the streaming quality flag from the app?
Thanks in advance,
