Using WMP12 - Slow Track Changing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    I have an OEM build of WHS v1 and been struggling with slow response times when streaming my music.

    On my main desktop, I have Windows 7 (WMP12).  Under WMP's music library location settings, I have it set as: \\SERVER\Music\

    The problem is that it can take up to 6 seconds for it to start playing the song!  Switching songs, starting new songs, scrolling through albums can all take up to 6 seconds.  Sometimes it is instant (like it should be), but most of the time its slow.

    I took a video capture to better explain the problem:


    At 0:02, I click on the new song to play.  Song finally starts at 0:08.  So I waited 6 seconds for the song to start.

    By the way, this only happens in WMP.  I don't have issues in other media players.

    Any ideas?
