I bought my first Raspberry recently and I became addicted to it, I installed several things but mainly focused on making it become LOCAL Plex Media Server, by local I mean that it should not need to transcode anything.
I followed the steps on this tutorial with the difference that the media (shows and movies) are not stored in USB disk connected to the RPI, the disk is connected to a router that shares it. To be specific the router is a D-LINK Archer C2.
My Plex client and where I play the videos is a Samsung ue55h6400
Ok, so the issue is that, with videos with not very high quality it works perfect, no issues at all, but with 720p sometimes at the beginning it stops and shows the loading symbol for some seconds and then continues. With 1080p videos, it happens much more often...making it impossible to watch them, the thing is.......sometimes! another times even the 1080 videos are played without issues.
The question are:
- Can I do what I plan to do? (no transcoding remember) I think is perfectly possible
- How can I detect what is happening that provokes this "loading" issue?
RPI is running Raspbian Jessie, and installed apart from Plexmedia server, monit, deluge, couch potato and RPI-Monitor. Also PiHole is installed but nothing pointing to it at the moment.
Thanks in advance
