Optimizing Unraid for Buffer-Free Media Playback


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


Anything else you'd add to this list of Unraid server-specific steps to prevent playback buffering?


- Use a Cache drive
- Set Mover to run only during off hours

- Set Parity checks to run only during off hours
- Use Gigabit connectivity
- Isolate Movies and TV shares on their own dedicated hard drives 
- Use Spin Up Group(s) for Movies and TV shares
- Put Movies and TV drives on the same controller
