PhotoStation on Apple TV 4K - freezes during UHD video play

Unread post by bereal » Tue Oct 10, 2017 3:08 pm

Hey all. I have DS214play as my primary media storage.

I just got brand new Apple TV 4K set up on UHD TV.

All the devices are connected via Gigabit Ethernet, so it should not be an issue.

When I play video via DLNA (NAS <> TV directly) - it plays without any stops/lags. I guess there is no transcoding happening .

However, when I use PhotoStation app on Apple TV 4K - the video is not streaming continuously - stopping every 5-10 seconds. I guess it is because my old DS214play is still trying to do any kind of transcoding and it fails. Is there a way to disable transcoding at all? My TV supports 4K (all formats), Apple TV supports 4K, file is 4K. Why transcoding is needed?

Any other suggestions are welcome!

(the reason I use PhotoStation is that I have mixed photo/video albums which I'd like to watch in the order of shooting (filename)).
