I'm using DVD Decrypter + Handbrake to rip and encode my DVD collection onto a file server. I decided to go the H.264 coded route, as it outputs a better picture. The videos look and play great on my laptop, etc using the default 360 preset for the encode. However, when I play them on my 360 they stutter. A two hour movie encodes to around 1.2GB, so I don't think it's my bitrate that the 360 can't keep up with.
Any advice or suggestions on how to combat this stuttering would be greatly appreciated.
