    Hi All,

    This has only started to happen in the last week or so. When I try to play a video file it takes about 15-20 seconds to start whereas prior to this it was pretty much instant.

    I'm running MP 1.13 on Windows 10. The files are stored on a NAS on 100 Mbit LAN and the file type appears to make no difference.

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers!



    Dave

    Hi Dave.

    Drives spinning down on the NAS would be my 1st guess - it's 100% in line with what I saw when I used NAS.

    Does it happen if you play videos one after the other, if NO, suggest spin down, if YES then you need to post logs,
    see - http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/Forum/How_to_post_logs


    Cheers - JCMP.

    AOK Nosher.

    Can I suggest you clean out logs 1st and keep track of what events at what times and post those with logs & observed behaviour:)

    TTFN - JCMP.

    Hi JCMP,

    When you say clean out logs, is that simply a case of deleting the contents of this folder:

    C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\log

    Cheers!

    Hi - yes, that should do it.

    However, recalled issue I had quite some time ago, slow start on videos - turned out new video I'd added but not viewed was corrupt - in this case MovingPictures was trying to read the meta data - I ended up using nettrace to to find issue [file being on NAS] - possible short cut, check out media added around the time the problem started.

    Cheers - JCMP
