Default streamer

Hi and thanks for reading this thread.

Firstly, apologies i could not find anywhere to post about streamers so guessed on "digital "

This is the problemo: I am using my pc to watch movies and recently purchased a hrt music streamer pro dac ($450) to help improve the audio a little as i want to build a really good system.

Movies play fine only once i get to a large file size, approximately anything over 5 gig the video begins to stutter.

I suspect the pc is not powerful enough to play really high definition stuff. It is cool with dvds and smaller sized movies but once i get to the big stuff it starts to stutter.

So i purchased a Ac Ryan Hd Playon streamer for slightly over 100 notes but upon comparison the video on the pc is a little better and the audio from the hrt music streamer pro is a lot better. So i gave the ac ryan away to my sister but i'm stuck now what should i do, should i try for a better streamer?

If so which one, or do you think i should abandon the streamer idea and just stick with the pc and only use small file sizes.

What to do, which would be the best way to go on this one? I've never used a streamer before and was wondering how they shape up to against pc's.

Many thanks in advance. John.

Unless you have a very old computer you should be able to play HD content.

What are the specs of your computer? (CPU, RAM)
What operating system and media player do you use?
Do you have any 3rd party video codecs installed?
What kind of video files are you playing? (codec, bitrate)
