Playback sluggish

Post by markn62 » 04 Jun 2019, 20:16

I am liking a lot the features of MrMc. However, the one thing that is the most bothersome is the sluggishness of playback. Terminating playback of any file via SMB share, after pressing the menu button on the remote, takes eight seconds before the video stops playing and returns the recordings file list to the video output. Infuse is instantaneous. Anyone else experience this?

On a side note, FF skip 30s with MrMc takes a second or two for green artifacts to disappear to a clean video stream. Infuse doesn’t do this, its instantaneously clean.

These two things, with the fact I cant get Trakt.tv to work, has me using MrMc only for photos & locally stored music. Albeit I can’t get Trakt.Tv to work with Infuse either, only iCloud syncs the “watched list”.

Sorry @davilla for the late response. Upon signup, this forum defaults to no notification of post replies, now enabled. Looks like since I wrote this post the compression artifacts on stream start are no longer an issue and the stream stop delay has reduced from 8 or so seconds to 1 to 2 seconds, which is acceptable. The debug log only says that the app started up successfully. Streaming files from a qNap 251+. Suffice it to say this resolved on it's own, perhaps from an auto client update by iOS. Thanks @davilla for your response.
