check you network settings? Are you stream though 100 full Duplex for the full speed or is it set to automatic and the playing buffers to long?

I've had this same problem. Some AVIs play fine over my 54Mbps wireless link, others stutter and freeze. The same files when copied to a DVD and played locally are fine.

The only pattern seems to be with files that are over 1GB in size. All others have no problems. I think XBMC's media player just doesn't cache large files properly over a network. I gave up on this long ago :-(

If you have some that don't play over SMB, then it is a permission issue. Make sure those files have inherited the correct permissions.

Check xbmc.log and you may see Access Denied.

I have the same problem. A couple of avi's aren't working through samba sharing. Most of the files that don't work seem to be Xvids.
When I converted Xvid to a new DivX it did stream, but I'm thinking that there must be a simple solution for this instead of converting them all.

The XBMC.log shows this:

Yeah I know the date isn't set correctly wink.gif.

But anyone know how to solve this?
Any help is appreciated greatly (and sorry for the sort of hijack huh.gif )

Here's a screen of a gspot log from of the 'bad' avi's.
