    Hi all,

    i would like to know why when I timeskip high bitrate files over lan it tooks ages even on gigabit lan. looking at task manager i see lan trafic going to 200Mbs (when i copy a file i see more than 600Mbs) and seems that mp is parsing all the video instead of jump directly for example to +1 hour.



    Thank you

    I have 27G BDRip and timeskip - Almost instantaneous, the launch has a delay, but this is quite possible due to the fact that the hard drive sleeps in NAS.
    PS: LAN - Gigabit ...

    yes i can confirm for bd rips it's almost instant, minutes to skip at +1h with UHD 70 Gib rip, seems that is degrading with video bandwith increasing. the question is exactly that, why seems it needs to parse all the file to reach the requested time? as far i saw on friend's mac and vlc it is not happening. i mean it is instant for any kind of bandwith file.

    May i ask you a couple questions. is your nas linux based and have you a smb share ? do you have ever tried with a windows share ?

    I do not know, maybe this is how the codec works.

    Hi @Sebastiii

    Tried with last lav nightly, nothig has changed. More i've tried with vlc , it's the same. So the problem happens with vlc-mpchc-mediaportal on windows machine and file on win share. Vlc mac and file on nas linux based share, timeskip is istantly going on +1h.

    Thank you for any other idea
