Full Version: CIFS Network drive faster than USB

Hi guys,
As per title I'm experiencing no buffer and super smooth playback when my hard drive is connected to the router via USB and mounted on the pi with cifs. 

If I take the same drive and plug it directly into the pi I start getting buffering after around 5 minutes play.

Any clues on why? 

Thanks!
