I am having Apple Movie Trailers Freeze. I'm also having my DVD's jerk. I thought it was a network issue because I stream wirelessly on my home network. I have verified that is not the case by connecting through network cable and trying to play DVDs. ALL DVD ISOs drop frames resulting in Jerky Playback. Sound does not jerk, just audio.
Funny thing is high bitrate videos still play stellarly. I encode XviDs in 1280 x 540 with bitrate of 2400. Absolutely fabulous with no dropped frames. In fact playing better than ever. It is really confusing to me why DVDs are stuttering.
PROBLEM SOLVED :
The Video Playback settings used to have radio buttons for 480p, 720p and 1080i. Now they have a drop down with various options. For DVDs and DVDs only I change from "Best available" which I presume is 1080i to 720p and I get stutter free playback. Just have to remember to do that. And maybe I'm imagining it but I do see loss of quality which might be expected because upscaling is not happenning as much. But at least I can watch my DVD backups. I was starting to get worried.
When I watch my high quality backups I have to remember to switch to "Best Quality". If I watch on 720p I can definitely see quality drop. And as I said before, the AVIs do not stutter at 1080i so there is no reason to switch down. I can live with it unless the problem somehow gets solved in future.
Hi, I am getting really juddery video when playing back a DVD over the wired network. You mention that Video Playback settings radio buttons don't exist but I can see them in all the recent versions I have looked at but they are greyed out. I have just installed the t3ch latest build of 27th April and they are there too. Is there something I need to do to enable these so I can select 720p? Thanks.
