    If DOKAN was installed by another software, you maybe should leave it as it is now.

    But try the approach of accessing server content from UNC share instead of server-local drives

    Yes, I used UNC paths (for some reason, I couldn't type them in and had to use on-screen keyboard). By using UNC paths, the stuttering was gone and playback was smooth but later, I had encountered a plethora of problems:

    1. Captions and subtitles were slightly out of sync (about 500 ms)
    2. MP2 client was not shutting down correctly as I could see it was still running in Task Manager
    3. A couple of times starting MP2 resulted in a black screen rather than showing the GUI. This occurred after the splash screen had shown and when the GUI was about to load, I saw black screen
    4 The HEVC video that was playing smoothly now no longer plays with a message at the top of the GUI showing "No media item" but other files did play. I'm not sure why it no longer plays in MP2 since it still plays in MP1
    5 The process of importing media fanart, metadata, etc takes up 100% CPU resources - consequently the GUI was not very responsive
    6 Switching movies to folder view took a long time but when I exited folder view and went back to folder view, the folder contents were not cached and were reloaded again and thus, taking a long time

    For now, I will continue to use MP1. I only played with MP2 as I had a lot of free time over this holiday season but it's back to work for me soon and I won't have time to continue with MP2. My MP2 install is probably a mess with constant changing of media sources, reimports, stopping and starting services, etc so I wouldn't be surprised if I had broken something. So don't get me wrong, MP2 is very deserving of praise!

    Thanks all for your input and taking the time to help!
