Solved Slow movie playback initialization
#1
Question 
When I start playing a movie from my freenas box it takes a long time to buffer and play. I use a username and password to access the path, the username and password is the owner of the movies directory and can read/write/execute. I am not sure why there is so much slow buffering, it take like 20 seconds to start:

If I try and play a movie in a freenas location that does not require a usename and password, playback starts almost immediately - both are 1080p files.

Any ideas? I think I am going to change that subtitle file location - but I don't think that is it, because I tried Zombieland from the Movies directory and the Transfer directory - transfer was fine, movies (as usual) was slow.

Ok, here is the full log:

I replaced my username with 'username', and password with 'password'. Let me know if you need anything else. I really think this is a permissions issue, but I really don't know what at this point.
