Hi, has anyone got any ideas what can be done to help.I have just had U.F.B connected through Orcon & have their NF4V router. I have just brought a google Chromecast to play movies off a desktop PC which is connected by an ethernet cable to the router. Every time i play any movie it stutters & buffers  every 3 or 4 seconds. I believe the TV & chromecast are fine as i can stream off a tablet using WiFi from the same orcon router.

Same problem here - go to Plex via GUI > Settings > Network > "Secure Connections" > "Disable".


Fixed it first time. Took a long time to find it. 




Edit: this was for my older first-gen device. You have a second gen device which shouldn't be impacted, but worth a shot anyway.

Any ideas for using Video stream instead of Plex. I just want to play movies without storing them on Plex.
