I’m beginning to think this might be an issue with mt-daapd’s video streaming…. 😕
I tried streaming the same file from mt-daapd (causing a long beachball hang) as well as an old Powerbook G4 through iTunes 6.0.5 (a short beachball hang ~4s, then a dialog pops up saying “Connecting…”, and then streaming begins).
Both systems are set up with similar bandwidth constraints (802.11) (I noticed that when I connected to the Linux machine via gigabit eth, the videos played over sharing without a problem, but they could have been just downloaded locally and I would not have noticed the time delay, since it was gigabit….)
I’m going to compare packet dumps and see if anything looks fishy…
