I've the same problem with my 100mbit network and using SMB-Filesystem
(Samba). But under windows i don't have such a problem.
i looked at parse_es.c and edited #define VIDEOBUFFER_SIZE 0x100000 to
#define VIDEOBUFFER_SIZE 0x1000000, then it was played normaly, but only
mpeg(2) files, not divxes...
