Hi,

 

Im using the 1.0.14 mac server version. I want to convert and download a couple of videos to my ipad, but the download takes ages about 1 hour for 1 gig of movie. When i copy this over my network via smb it takes 2 minutes. Is there some setting im missing why the download takes so long?

 

Im converting and downloading some video's because for some reason i am not able to play them on my apple tv without buffering issues every minute. This doesn't happen al the time and im not sure yet if its a local wifi issue or air video. But as you maybe understand is it very frustrating to wait an hour for 1 video to be downloaded to my ipad. 

 

Kind regards,

Bas

Hi,

CPU and disk speed have very little impact here. 6mbit/s is not very fast for a WiFi. Usual speed on good networks are 20-30 mbit/s.

Hiya, I have similar problem as well. Not at home at the moment so I can't give my numbers (will later today), but the "taking ages to download" problem is there.

 

Even if the 6mb/s is 4x lower than expected, that doesn't really explain why he has 300kb/s actual download speed.

 

Is it possible to download via cable to pc, or only through network?

What's the connection speed in your case?
