I’m pulling my hair out and really hoping for some help. I have two Odroid N2’s running 220.127.116.11 on a Gigabit network – using NFS for my Unraid Shares. I have tested my network throughput, extensively, and during multiple 1-5 minute iperf3 tests, I haven’t seen a read speed slower than 99 MBytes/sec. However, whenever I try to watch high bitrate, I get buffering like crazy, both with and without Cache adjustments via advancedsettings.xml. I even seen buffering on lower bitrate content, from time to time. To put it mildly, I’ve tested every single recommended cache setting I’ve seen referenced on this forum and most other Kodi related forums.
I’ve tried countless fresh installs of 18.104.22.168, with no real stable progress. Every so often I’ll get perfectly clean playback of the 400Mbps Jellyfish video or Good Fellas 4k Remux – proving super high bitrate isn’t the issue, in general – but then it stutters again and that and much lower bitrate content. I’ve tested everything from Jellyfish to 4K remuxes (Lucy, GoodFellas), and I’m just banging my head against a wall.
I’m also getting all kinds of crazy artifacts on playback

Not sure if it’s appropriate, but I’m happy to put a bounty on this. I’m losing my mind
