    I have a few videos that hang and lag. I've been going at this for a few days and have bounced around as to what exactly the problem is. I have ruled out that it isn't a network problem, as the problem exists regardless if I play it over the network or through a plugged in USB drive.

    I have tried on both the basic Media Player and GTVBox, it works better throught he Media Player, but they both have problems.

    Most of my video's play fine, it just seems to be a few problem ones. I did extract the data from the video formats, so I'm hoping someone could make heads or tails of what it means and hopefully identify where my problem is.

    The first three are videos that DON'T work... I tried to get a different mix of formats, resolutions, bitrates, etc.

    Well... after much struggling to narrow the problem down, I figured it out. The one point of failure I never explored was the software I was using to convert my videos. I had been using the free version of "any video converter". I switched to "next video converter" and the lagging problems dissapeared.

    So now my focus is moving onto which software to use?
