Massive stuttering - help
This is driving me NUTS
Let me preface this by saying I've had plex for years and other than an occasional glitch, everything has run on all of my platforms buttery smooth on max settings.
A few weeks ago, seemingly out of the blue all of my content began stuttering. Files that have played smooth and well will stutter like a 4k video on an underpowered pc. Either the video will play for a few seconds, freeze and continue, or it'll play in a robotic continuous stutter without sound. Most of my collection is 1080p, but this happens on any video. 720p, 480p, etc..
Platforms I use and current results -
Android - normal
Android tv - hard to say, likely normal but my nexus player is so underpowered it stutters anyhow
Xbox one - unusable
Samsung smart tv - unusable
TiVo bolt - unusable
Xbox 360 - perfectly smooth playback, however 5.1 sound is only presented in the front 3.1 channels
What must I do to fix this?
Server was on 1.55 when this stated. I upgraded to 1.6 with no results, then downgraded to 1.44 with also no results
I have as instill i7 860, 16gb ram, 866mbit connection to my lan.
