I manage and stream my videos with a self-hosted web application. The web application also offers DLNA based streaming.
When I stream the videos via the browser (latest Raspberry PI OS and default Chromium browser), it jerks massively. This is not a good way to watch.
But if I stream the same video over DLNA with VLC, it runs performant and you can enjoy it.
No DRM in the files.
Why this behavior with the same video?
- the same web app runs smoothly on LG 4K NanoCell TV (55NANO867NA) which has an
α7 Gen3 processor 4KCPU (never heard of it).
Why is it so much better with SmartTV compared to PI?
I do not want to stream with a proprietary SmartTV, how can I explain the performance differences and how can I fix them?
