    I have the following issue when starting video's from several sources (Uitzending Gemist, NOS): The initial buffering is very slow, so I have to wait several minutes before the video actually starts. At first, nothing happens, then the counter starts from 0% to 100% and then after a while, the video starts. After start of the video, everything is fine, all video's, also HD, play smoothly.



    Does anyone have a clue?

    If you use Microsoft security essentials or other anti virus try excluding MP folders from being scanned.

    That did the trick, I excluded the Mediaportal process in Security Essentials. That bugged me for a long time, but never associated it with the virus scanner ...

    Thanks a lot for the reply, Rich!
