I want to play a 4k video from my NAS. However, the movie often stops and starts buffering.
In between the buffering everything works fine and normal HD videos also work fine.
When I play the same 4k video from a hard drive directly connected to the vero 4k+, it also works great.
So I guess the connection between the NAS and vero 4k+ is the limiting factor.
However, when I copy the video from my pc to the NAS it easily gets 100MB/s. So I thought the connection to the NAS should be fast enough.
I have a mounted a shared folder in OSMC’s filesystem as described here: File sharing with a NAS, media server, windows share or other device
I’m using the NFS protocol with fstab.
The setup I’m using is the following:
- NAS: WD cloud ex2 ultra
- The NAS is connected with a wire (CAT5e) to a wifi access point which acts as a switch
- the wifi access point is connected with a wire (CAT5e) to my general router
- the vero 4k+ is also connected with a wire (CAT5e) to the wifi access point.
The video I try to play is “Dolby_Universe_4K_SDR_71-Atmos-thedigitaltheater”. (which I downloaded here: https://thedigitaltheater.com/dolby-trailers/)
Here is a log when I tried to play the 4k video.
