samba: linux mounted share = choppy playback, windows mounted share = smooth
I have a samba server that hosts various recorded tv episodes and whatnot for my mythtv system. I have the episodes share mounted to the filesystem on my mythtv frontend.
When I play back video with mplayer through smb, it pauses and chops every few seconds, like it drops one or two frames. This is tremendously annoying.
Under windows, using media player classic, everything plays through the same share with no problems whatsoever. Both computer are on the same 100mbps network segment, and are accessing the samba share using the same credentials.
Does anybody have any idea what may be the problem?
The samba logs show nothing of interest.
