Right now I am streaming my backed up movies wireless through TVERSITY and a Lynksys wrt310 N router. I have noticed I sometimes have probs with stuttering playback. Would using another router as a bridge thus getting more whole house coverage help?? Or is my 3 yr old router outdated for this application?


Thanks

Try PS3 media server first. I run it on a 2003 era desktop and it streams stutter free

I'd try ps3 media server, and drop the quality a bit,
could be your proccessor or your network that can't keep up
or both,
is your ps3 wired or wireless? cause pS3 is only "G",

I run my PS3 wired(1000Mbps) and my computer on wireless "N"(300Mbps), and my network can keep up to anything, my computer becomes the problem, proccessor gets smoking hot

with the PS3 on G you are limited to 54Mbps and thats under perfect optimal conditions chances are if you're running the pS3 wireless its no where near the router

what kind of quality are you running at?, my laptop is just over a year old and was best of the best at the time and I run into problems streaming "lossless" Blu ray quality stuff,

I always had issues when streaming wirelessly from TVersity or PS3 Media Server (two different locations - one where the router and the PS3 were no more than 20 feet apart). Switched to Powerline Ethernet and all the stuttering went away.

Two really quick things you can check for starters: plug the PS3 in wired just to see if that gets rid of the playback stuttering (if it is, you'll pretty much have to go the wired route). If you switch over the PS3 media server, you can also check the transcoding buffer status to determine if the issue is the PC performance.

The type of content being played, the connection speed, the speed of the PC and the media-sharing software being used could all potentially be bottlenecks.

Thanks again.

The PS3 is wired. I can't seem to get PS3 media server to find the system. I have tried numerous times and finally gave up and ran TVersity.

Some videos will play fine others will stutter 90% of the movie.

I always have to change my firewall to manual, so that when PS3 media server tries to connect I can allow it

Never did try to stream lossless blu ray quality (I play Blu rays on the PS3) but I did stream the original version of this 4K HD video from Afghanistan just fine

Whoa, you streamed a 4k HD video to your PS3??? I'm currently trying to get my PS3 to play a Full 3D bluray mkv rip of Cloudy with a chance of meatballs over the media server. All my other backed up up non 3D mkv's stream fine how ever i get unsupported data when i try the 3D mkv. The resolution is 3840x1080.

Try PS3 media server and I always tell folks. If you are streaming, use a wired connection.

Yea it's a 4320p mp4 file (originally anyways, properties don't confirm the 4320p) It streams and transcodes no problem but I have learned to use the "scene search" square button rather than trying to FF or Rwd anything 720p or higher just freezes

The buffer seems to fill to 99,xxx,xxx bytes whether I stream 720p or 1080p

This is a single core 1.8Ghz AMD that can barely browse the web anymore, but the connection is wired 100 Mb/s
