Certain videos stutter when I cast them.  Other videos play fine.    I have turned off 50Hz mode as others have suggested, but this has no impact.  Here is a link to one of the troublesome videos:

Hello, thanks for taking the time to post your issue.
 
Does your supported sending device (e.g phone), TV or router have a task killer app, standby, firewall, antivirus, sleep mode, power saver, a parental control, tv HDMI-CEC settings, wifi network extender, or electromagnetic devices (stereo receiver, DECT cordless phone, microwave, baby monitor, refrigerator, LCD monitor, etc) causing interference?  A wifi repeater may cause a micro second delay.
 
If you have DECT or baby monitor, or other bluetooth devices, make sure their batteries are fresh and check their user manuals about changing channels. Speaking of channels, if you have an Android device, install the Google Play app, Wifi Analyzer and run it. Your wifi router may be on a congested channel. Try channel 1, 6 or 11. Not Auto setting.  Please keep in mind that resetting or making changes to your router settings may have unintended consequences. If you have questions or concerns, please consult your router manufacturer or Internet Service Provider before making any changes. See What router settings do I need to set up Chromecast?

Try Chromecast on the SAME 2.4 (Chromecast 1st gen requirement) Ghz frequency wifi router band as your Android devices

I do not have any of the things you mentioned on my device.  I am using iOS.  If there were a problem with my setup it would affect ALL videos, correct?  But that’s not the case.  Only CERTAIN videos are affected.

Hi John,
 
Thanks for the reply. I have some clarifying questions I'd like to ask:
  1. Have you tried to cast using a different casting device?
  2. Have you tried changing the quality on that specific video?
1st generation Chromecast can only do 30fps, if the video content exceeds 30fps, the played video may experience stuttering.
 
Regards,
Craig

I have cast from my iPhone and my iPad with the same result.  I have also confirmed that the frame rate for the particular video I referenced in my original question is 30.  So this is not the issue.

Hi John,
 
Thanks for the reply. Longer/bigger video content tends to experience network fluctuation if the internet speed is below 5-7 Mbps, adding other devices connected to your WiFi router sharing the bandwidth.

My download speed is 33 Mbps...

Would a current model chromecast work better or would I have the same issue?

Hey folks,
 
It looks like several different issues are going on here. The original poster started this thread back in June 2020. To ensure that you're all receiving the best support from our community members, I kindly ask that you start a brand new thread with specific details about your issue. I'll be locking this thread now.

For issues that only affect one particular app, I recommend you reach out to the in-app support and let them know about your casting experience.

Thanks in advance,
Craig
