If you purchase an Etherent adapter make sure its chip set is supported on Android many are not supported.
I successfully tested streaming 1080p video (11.2Mps) but my comments are all about maximizing the bitrate that can be streamed to your Nexus 10. With ordinary single band WiFi I can watch stutter free 1080p YouTube videos but those videos have significantly lower bitrates than Blu-ray video files. A 720p HD video with a very high bitrate could overwelm your network bandwidth resulting in stutter.
The post I linked mentioned the bitrates of the various video files I test. Check to see how much higher your videos are versus what I tested.
I'm going to suggest that you copy a sample 1080p video file from your collection, who's bitrate is typical of what you want to stream, to your Nexus 10's internal storage. Then play it to see if its stutter free. That will eliminate knowing if network bandwidth is your limiting factor. You will need to use a video player that configured to use hardware playback such as MX Player or to acheive an acurrate test.
Thanks Sammy. One problem I have that I can use a suggestion is testing that network stutter, bandwidth, transfer feeds and pings WITHIN my network...are there programs that allow me to easily do this (ie test the speed between my computer and the router)? This seems to be one of the most useful yet difficult things to test.
