Apple Trailers issue

Question

Howdy!  For the past few months, I've had a problem with Apple Trailers playing the first few seconds, then pauding, slowly buffering for a few minutes then playing out the buffer almost immediately, and on and on until the trailer finishes (a long time when I get 5 or 10 seconds of trailer, then buffer for 2 minutes) or I get POed and skip the trailer.  Is this a problem with Apple Trailers itself, or some setting on my end I've fudged?

 

I love you,

 

Matt

Can you stream trailers normally without buffering on a different system on the same network as your HTPC?  If so, it could be a setting.  If I recall, there is an option where you can set the resolution of the trailers.  It's been a while since I've run trailers.  If streaming to another system causes the same issue, it could be that your ISP or local network is having an issue.  I doubt Apple is going to have bandwidth issues with their site.

I was dumb and hadn't even tried limiting it to 720p.  I've got plenty of bandwidth so 1080p shouldn't have been a problem, but I guess something somewhere was bottlenecking me.

 

Now if only I could find out where Ragnarok has gone.  Hope everything's ok with them.

Unfortunately not.  Now I just have mediahuman download trailers from youtube to a 'recent trailers' folder and tell cv to play 2 randoms from there.  I set up a script to delete everything in that folder to delete anything more than a month old every night.
