problems when streaming video
« on: April 03, 2015, 01:22:17 PM »

Hi,

I have problems when I try to play video from DNS-345, most of the time the video lags.
here is my setup

DNS-345 --- wired connected---> Router(TL-WR1043ND) --- wireless connection---> macbook pro retina early 2013 model

I browse the video files using the mackbook and play it using VLC. the video is not HD and still lags
I connect both network card of DNS-345 to the router using wired connection.
Im not sure what Link Aggregation should i use the help improve video streaming..

I need your advise. thank you

    Does wired streaming work?
    • What wireless modes are you using?


  • What security mode are you using? Preferred security is WPA-Personal. WPA2/AES Only. Some WiFi adapters don't support AES, so you might want to try TPIK only or Auto TPIK and AES.

What kind of files are you streaming from the DNS? High bandwidth or high resolution video files need more speed than wireless can provide sometimes. I stream raw BD and DVD files however I use LAN wired to stream. Raw BD files can stream over a 5Ghz AC mode wireless however buffering was seen on my system here and there. It was not seamless as wired LAN.

What wireless radio are you using? Are these 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz radios? 2.4Ghz is not recommended for streaming video. There maybe some interferences on 2.4Ghz radio in your area.  5Ghz works better for streaming video sources.

Let us know now wired LAN works for you.

Im not sure what Link Aggregation should i use the help improve video streaming..

I believe link aggregation only works with more complex (and expensive) managed switches, not standard unmanaged switches typically found in consumer electronics stores. When connected to a consumer router or consumer switch, the second Ethernet port really only provides redundancy/failover.
