Hello, I'm having an issue where movies intermittently freeze (for 1-5 seconds) during direct play. The problems are usually exacerbated by pausing/rewinding. It's 100% reproducible with this particular movie, so I went ahead and sent in a log from my Fire TV.
What I did for the submitted log file:
- Fast forwarded the video to around 4:00, then hit rewind a few times. The movie played briefly, then froze for several seconds before continuing.
Time I sent the log in:
- 1:03AM EST
Name of Emby user on the server:
I don't believe this is network-related for a couple of reasons:
- This happens only when direct playing. If I set the streaming bitrate limit to 10 Mbps (the maximum Mbps that uses transcoding for this particular file), I don't see any freezing issues. If I bump it up to 11 Mbps, direct play kicks in--and so does the intermittent stuttering.
- I have a stable connection to my media server that should be more than capable of direct play in this case, as evidenced here:
