Stuttering on MP4 files

I usually run ffmpeg to compress the huge mpg files i get from the HDHR OTA on Sagetv.

Occasionally the HD200, mibox or Nvidia Shield stutters playing them back. To rule out the network I used a very long cat 5 cable with cross over plug to go direct from the server to the extender as a test. I had the same stuttering occasionally. Which according to the WAF, it is way too often if it ever happens.

I have the same issues using WiFi to a mibox in my RV. I am looking at all the
Video Renderer, Decoder Filters and other setting in the video/audio settings for the sage server and wonder if any of those affect playing the mp4 videos on the external devices like the HD200/300

This screen shot shows the current settings.. -Bill
