       Video horribly stuttering while playing M2TS

    Sorry M2TS

    I have a bunch of Blu-Ray iso on my 7200 RPM 1 TB drive. My PC is Gigabit as with my Switch. Every device is running CAT6 ethernet cabling. When trying to play the Blu-Ray ISO, it says cannot play this file, but can play the movie inside. Perfectly fine with me. Everything starts out great, Image and sound quality are perfect. Then after about a minute and a half everything goes down south. The image stutters and the audio drops in and out. Thinking it might have to do with it being an ISO, I ripped the M2TS file out of there and played that directly. Well it did the same thing.

    I'm on the latest firmware as well. My PS3 plays these files just fine.

    Is anyone else experiencing this?

    how is everything hooked up? is the drive hooked up to the live or you PC?
    file system of the drive is??
    streaming from windows to any of the WDTV series players requires NFS for anything higher res than 720P

    you can have fiber running and it wont make a difference, windows to WDTV - requires NFS for anything 1080.
    the wdtv network adapters are all 100MB so far, that is fine for streaming if it's setup correctly.

    Linux or mac may be a different solution but without your info it's all guess work..

    Hi there. Basically, I'm right clicking on a folder to share it. Then under security tab, I'm adding "Everyone" with Read permissions. Am I doing this completely wrong? Is there a guide to set this up properly.

    nope, you are using Windows, like I said, unless you are running NFS, 1080p will not stream properly for you

    either get an NFS program running and use an NFS share or use an external hard drive on your media player, there is no other solution.

    7 ultimate has it built in...
    I haven't tried it on 7 as I only stream tv shows, all 720 and work fine for me.

    I prefer to use an external drive on my WDTV for best performance, ease of use and turn it off when not using it for longer life.
    4 X 1TB all full, using a USB HDD dock at my pc and the wdtv..

    hanewin, I know XP had one built in you could add through add / remove windows components, not sure about other versions of 7, there are others too..

    I was going to try it with 7 here but am happy with my setup so I didn't bother - perhaps some snowy day this winter when I have some time in between shoveling..

    For Win7's in-built NFS feature (which isn't installed by default), you'll need to install the Client Services for NFS under Windows. See here for more or simply Google. However, I don't think Win7 includes an NFS server, which is what is really required. AFAIK, only Windows Server editions include the Server for NFS component.

    You can try the haneWIN NFS Server on Win7 as detailed here. This video tutorial might help as well.
