    All current-generation streamers can play standard encodes with ease. They'll all do Divx/Xvid and h.264 DVD rips with AC3 or MP3 audio. Nearly all will do reasonable BD rips as well. It's only when you get to the really high-end encodes or uncommon stuff that you can run into compatibility issues.

    Here is what is included in this collection of test files to determine the limits of a given device. I've tried to cover all the bases, but if something is missing, please let me know.

    • M2TS: Standard 1080p M2TS ripped from a blu-ray
    • DVR-MS: Microsoft's old proprietary TV recording format
    • WMV9: 1080p WMV9 video with 5.1 WMA audio
    • HDTV: 1080i 60hz HDTV rip, no audio
    • AVCHD: 1080p M2TS from a Sony HD camcorder
    • Improper encode: The infamous Planet Earth clip with an absurd 16 reframes. The bird scene stutters even on high end PCs
    • DTS: Standard DTS 5.1 audio
    • DTS-MA: 7.1 DTS-MA lossless audio
    • Dolby TrueHD: 7.1 lossless TrueHD audio
    • MP4: 1080p L5.0 Apple trailer with 9 reframes and AAC audio
    • 5.1 FLAC + SSA: Multichannel FLAC audio and SSA (ASS 4.0) subs including complex styles and transitions
    • OGG: 720p Ogg Theora video with Vorbis audio
    • RMVB: Real Video variable bitrate. Unknown if it is RM9 or RM10, as they both use the same header (RV40)
    • TRP: 1080p Kaon DVB Transport Stream with dual AC3 audio
    • UTF-8: MKV with the following UTF-8 SRT sub tracks: Arabic, Chinese, English, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese
    • Deinterlacing: 1080i test pattern to determine deinterlacing capabilities (see here for details)

    This is an excellent benchmark to the PBO different firmware releases, at least to get an idea about what works on which.

    Scoring:
    I suggest giving a point for perfect playback and 0 otherwise (+ adding notes for problematic files).

    Now for the last test file (deinterlacing), there is no scores, you just need to figure out which deinterlacing method is being used.

    So we have 16 files and 15 possible points to score.

    Please report the Firmware version, score and deinterlacing method in the title of your replies.

    Thanks,

    The file indeed doesn't have any audio tracks (this one is a video test).

    Ok, I tested this again and realized there was some hesitation (not much and I noticed no stuttering) but without an audio track it was difficult to tell where hesitation occurred as opposed to slow motion in the recording. Edited results to reflect hesitation was indeed present.

    Btw, the Bugatti Veyron video was fantastic. Was glad that was longer than the others lol
