Stuttering playback happening more frequently

fpswarefpsware Members, Plex Pass Posts: 15 Plex Pass

I can't recall exactly when this started but its more at the point where I'm over it.

More frequently playing is buffered and stuttering but only on some media. I have 3 RasPlex devices and the same media has an issue on all 3.

I came across a similar post (https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/313165/direct-play-on-rasplex-causing-bufferring-and-stuttering#latest) and I tried their suggestion but its not resolved the problem.

Media info attached if that helps.

    I see that the file is small

    can you upload it somewhere so I can test it on my setup?
