Fire Cube and MRMC choking on 4K movie

Post by thesuffering » 25 Feb 2019, 00:02

Trying to play a 4K movie file that works just fine on my Nvidia Shield and MrMC. When I try to play it on MrMC it just stutters and eventually pauses. My understanding is the Fire Cube should be able to handle this, so Im not sure why it wont work with it but the same file will with the Shield. Im using the Plex library. Here is the video file info from Plex:

Ok, but note that the ethernet adapter for fire tv is 10/100 only, so if you have a fast AC wifi, it might actually be faster, and worth a try (nothing obvious from your log)

Thats really unfortunate that Amazon couldnt pack the thing with gigabit ethernet considering its a 4K box. I do have fast AC wifi, but its a decent distance from the router and the 5.0ghz coverage in this room is so so, which is why i was using ethernet. Guess giving wifi a whirl cant hurt.

Heh... Don't forget streaming 4K from Amazon and Netflix is like 25/30 Mbps.

Amazon didn't create the AFTV with streaming full BD in mind ;)

So, not quite sure its a network issue anymore. Downloaded VLC, connected to the Plex library over UPnP, and played the exact same movie. Loaded, played, skipped forward and back just fine. Whats the difference here between VLC and MrMC?
