Noticed a pecularity, when I fast seek (jump between different time periods in a show or movie) that are of large size, I encounter a basically stall.
My network is, NAS(libreelec)->Switch(DD-WRT,10/100)->Router(1Gb)->wireless->shield / mi box / pc / etc
Now, on old network the NAS bypassed the switch had a hardline to router, though with this new setup it's through a Switch. The video is h264, 1080p. Also the NAS was running a standard ubuntu distro for Hardkernel, I've swapped that for Libreelec. Other than that no real difference. File sizes have gotten bigger 2gb vs 4gb. Network congestion is low, running mostly defaults, choose wireless network with least traffic.
When I fast seek in VLC on Windows 8.1 laptop the jump happens instanteously or thereabouts, whereas with Mi Box (SPMC, Kodi) and Shield TV (SPMC), it stalls, very poorly. Now the default settings on Samba seem good enough, and I followed there pointer pattern. When I fast seek with VLC on phone it's slow. Should I tinker with advanced settings, is the standard builds of Kodi looking for key frames that ought to be skipped, to better enable fast seeking?
Open to ideas / thoughts. Thank you!
