PS3 Media Server and Stuttering?

I have gotten a new PS3 and I have decided to use it as media player for my iTunes purchases and encodes (DRM removed) however it seems to stutter... no matter what the file is it stutters.

I get that 1080p will stutter over WiFi but 720p and 480p? could they be transcoding despite not needing to be? if I find an ethernet cable and plug that in will help with stuttering?

Is there anyway to transfer the files directly to the PS3? that would be a lot easier IMO.

Cheers.

I used to put all video files in MP4 format using Vuze torrent dowloading software to convert the files. I havent streamed to PS3 in a long time as PS3 put a software update which doesn't allow some downloaded videos to play longer than 30 minutes without cutting the sound off. anyways hope that helps

have a look at your CPU / Ram usage when streaming if it's high then it's transcoding, PS3's are only 802.11g iirc (my PS3 Slim was) use a ethernet on both PS3 and the computer.

Also sometimes they need to transcode the audio track that forces the whole thing to be re-coded. nightmare.
