For sure your hardware is up to snuff, if we are talking local there is either an issue with your software setup/network/or client you are serving media to. Have you tried playing these same files through the web browser on the server itself. Or through some other device.

You may just be throwing money away buying new hardware.


Yes they play fine on the web browser, just not anywhere else. Tried local on mobile, fire stick, roll. Roe more on iPad, and mobile. Always the same. Used to only have stuttering when playing large 4K files, after upgrading to premium I had the stuttering constantly regardless of file type. I’ve turned off GPU acceleration for now

Sorry we would need to see ffmpeg logs of the issue when using HWA. As the only log posted is for the i7-2600 software decode/encode of hevc to h264. The i7-2600 appears to chocks on hevc conversion.

Can you explain that in simpler terms?

He's just making an educated guess but if you can provide the transcoding log then we can provide more detail. Thanks.

The CPU is choking on h.265 as expected. Additionally, it is possible your GPU isn't doing the work.
