bubbleguuum posted some some real-world experience and said essentially anything over 5 Mbit will be problematic, and most 1080p stuff is recorded at higher than 5 Mbit/sec.
10 megabits but i don't have any problem streaming from the internet through the chromecast. for instance any home videos uploaded to google plus photos stream fine through avia but the same videos stutter when streamed directly from my phone. also 1080p videos i download from youtube stream fine from the device. the only time i get stutter is when i stream home movies shot in 1080 or 720 from my device
so i hooked up a toshiba USB hard drive to the router and put my media files onto it. using the bubbleupnp app i tried streaming from the hard drive to the cc. it does make an improvement but still choppy. the hard drive is hooked to the usb 3.0 port on the back of the router so i don't know what else i could do besides moving the tv into the room with the router and that isn't possible. guess i just have to wait until chromecast 2.0 comes out and hope they fix whatever is ailing it now. thanks for the help guys
See the attachments for use examples and how the required bandwidth can multiply: Note that the 10 Mbps figure is just an example.
