What is the maximum bitrate I should be able to use when using Plex -> Wifi -> Chromecast?

Should I be able to cast mp4(h264, bitrate around 10000) movies with original quality to chromecast without stuttering?

Setup: Powerful enough computer -> network cable connection to wifi router -> strong wifi signal to chromecast

Everything works if I choose any lower streaming setting from plex like 8mbit/1080, but when I switch to "original" quality, it seems that even 6GBit movie will stutter.

What do you think, Is this normal?
I get good quality with 8Mbit setting, but I would like to use original quality if it's possible with this kind of setup.

    Ok, I may have found a solution. I think stuttering happens because of 5.1 sound. Stereo doesn't seem to cause this problem.
