Hoping that somebody can point me in the right direction on this one. Lately I’ve been noticing that some Remux 4k movies (very high bandwidth) are stopping a few seconds into playing them. I have a Vero 4k, files are being hosted on my desktop computer via fstab NFS mounts, Vero 4k is hardwired into router, as is desktop computer. I attempted to check the connection via iperf through this method ([How To] Check Network Performance with iperf3) but kept getting errors (connection timed out, refused, etc.)
Here’s a copy of my most recent log where this happened this evening while trying to watch Frozen, which has a video stream of 56.8 Mb/s per MediaInfo: http://paste.osmc.io/ikiqotovew
For what it’s worth, I threw the movie on a flash drive and plugged it into the Vero 4k and it worked just fine.
Let me know if there is anything else that I can provide which might help with troubleshooting this.
If you want to test it without having to configure anything else first you can access your system mounts from the file manager in settings and try playing from there. If that solves your problem then you can do either method to point your library to the system mount.
I attempted to access my mounts from the file manager like you mentioned and received a “Couldn’t connect to network server” error, so I assume that means that when I play content from my Vero that it’s not accessing the files via FSTAB mounts like I want it to?
The “cd /mnt/Server_Movies” command was always the point that I couldn’t get past when I was trying to properly configure everything through that guide. Since most of the time my movies worked, I assumed that I did everything correctly but now I’m realizing that probably wasn’t the case.
