Source: computer in my home network (internet: 200/20) -> Connection: vpn:pptp -> Destination: a friends home (internet: 30/3)
from my friends home i start up my laptop (running serviio) and connect to vpn. i already have the database scanned and everything in it. when im at my friends place, i can vieuw the list just fine... after a bit it starts streaming but then the problem accrues: after about 6 seconds the movie needs to buffer again and this keeps happening. when i try movies that are stored on my laptop itself, everything works fine. that would eliminate everything between serviio and the media player i guess...so the problem has to be around the vpn and input to serviio?
you may think internet is to slow to stream it... but this is not the problem because my upload is 20Mbit and my movies are lower. also when i stream them in vlc it works just fine. when i look at my internet usage it uses around 5 Mbit and other movies it doesnt go more then 3Mbit... so somehow it uses just a bit less then what the movie exactly is. is there a way to fix this?
i did try another media streamer and that one had the same problem.
i also tried using IP and mounted network folder but it didnt change anything with the performance.
