Choppy (freezing, studdering) mp4 video when streaming on FMS

Hello everyone,


I have a question regarding choppy video output from FMS on our streaming project which is running on FMS 4.5 and FMS 5.


Problems show up when we stream previously recorded mp4 files. The playback is choppy, it works for 2-3 seconds, and then stops for 1 second or so.

Of course, the same file works when played in FMS or in some other media player, only streaming is problematic.


We have multiple FMS installations (development / production) and the issue is consistent on all installations.


I have tried to watch the stream using:

- our custom player,

- Wowza media player available at RTMPPlayer/player.html,

- ffplay

And the issues are consistent in all three players.

    What do you mean by playing fine with FMS but streaming is problematic? Do you mean you play it fine when directly downloading it from FMS but streaming it from FMS is a problem?
