Wireless Home Network for Video
Much Frustration.

I bought a Samsung Blu-Ray player that has built-in wi-fi so that I can pull movies and tv shows off of my hard drive to watch on our bedroom tv.

On a good day, the player recognizes that there are shared files, and I can pick them. They will start to play, and will play for about 2 seconds, buffer, play 2 seconds more, buffer, etc.

I would gladly walk away and let the whole thing buffer to it's heart's content until It gets the half or the whole thing, but that's a no go too.

When I load the files on to the USB flash drive, what was good on the PC is bad on the BluRay. Audio de-syncs or becomes choppy.

-------------

I just want a set-top box that can find my files on my pc and play them, whatever the crap they may be. Is this such a difficult thing to do in 2012?

Get a faster usb stick...the audio is choppy because the read/write is slow.

This sounds like a good thing to try.

I don't want to be tethered to a stupid USB drive in the first place, but it's looking like that's going to have to be the way.

For example, I have a 720p episode of "Hell on Wheels" I'd like to watch on the big screen in mkv format.

I have dl'ed, transfered, and watched same before.

The ep plays flawlessly on PC, but when I put it on the USB drive this particualr episode cuts in and out with volume on the sound.

I tried to throw it on to a BLU Ray re-writeable disc and got the same result, so it's not really the USB stick doing the failing, it's probably an out of date codec in the blu ray player (and yes, I did get the latest firmware update)

All I want to do is have a box on top of the dresser that picks up the wireless signal from the router and can retrieve, read and display my media files quickly, completely, and without mangle.

I don't get why this is such an impossible task.
