Yes it plays without jerking and is smooth... Here at Jonyjams Computers we find that most folks pc's have tons of odd ball infections ect... regardless of what folks think, we have found that Norton and McAfee products are pretty much worthless to us! They put tons of services on the pc and slows the pc down to a crawl. CHALLENGE: download the new Vipre or Panda or CA Antivirus... Update your virus software, scan and remove anything that it finds (that you believe is a true threat). Now, uninstall it... load up one of three of these, update it and scan. (bet it finds stuff that those two didn't)? Seen this thousands of times!
Now... download Malwarebytes free... download SuperAntispyware free... download Adaware free, and install these and scan. remove everything they find. (PLEASE configure these tools to NOT auto update or send any info anywhere - folks need to learn how to configure their pcs!!! You don't want any tools to load with windows.
Set them to manual in your services and options. Don't let icons run in your tray ect... ("Jonyjams Computers" builds some of the fastest pc's in the midwest folks! - we are talking about 20 second boots!!!
7.4 - 7.9 scores in Windows Seven boxes
Turn all those silly services off... Manually run all your tools and let your Antivirus software be in control.
Do a disk cleanup, defrag the pc! Defrag defrag defrag... I don't care what you have been led to believe in the past or what you been told. Defrag the damn pc!
Now lets move on to these codecs. Download the Standard K-lite package.(at this time - May 27th of 2010... it is version 5.90, and after installing you will get a 5.96 update. I leave everything at default when installing, and if it finds broken codecs DO NOT REMOVE them if you have Roxio products installed, just ignore that and move on... I also put a check mark in both Windows Media player and Classic Windows Media Player so both can play lots of content. I also put a check mark in MKV selection for thumbnails. (lots of blueray rips are ripped to mkv's and look superior over avi.
Don't for get to do your update when it ask...
Be careful what link you choose to get K-lite from and the update.
Lots of popups from some of these sponsors... (crap)
Now we are ready to watch some smooth movies wirelessly!
One more thing on the wireless... Please don't be unreasonable with the distance your trying to stream - 3 blocks away type crap...ha
I always have my access point above or on the same level - Not downstairs in a remote corner and my tv up on the 2nd floor type deal with out some type of boost whether it be the new inline electric ect... I have customers running the B/G and N's with NO PROBLEMS!
But i promise you this... if you have tons of things going on in the background all the time, it will stutter even when using an ethernet cable.
Wireless is 50% slower than wire!!! give or take...
Yes its a lot of work and i believe it all starts at the pc. It has to be right to begin with, Don't install any linksys software ect... learn how to manually configure your router through Firefox (don't use IE folks...please, I won't go there!)
