    Long time user of NOD32 here and never had an issue until now.

    I installed PlayOn (themediamall.com) on my Vista Home Premium 32bit pc, which is a media server to stream videos from Netlfix, Youtube, Hulu to my Playstation3. If I leave ESET running the video stream is being analysed and the playback stops. Disabling ESET, however, gives a perfect movie. I tried unchecking the server (which does show up in the list) in 'Web access protection', I tried adding the websites from Netflix etc as "safe", however nothing works...

    Any ideas how I can disable ESET to monitor the PlayOn video stream (while still doing its other duties)?

    I'm in the same boat as the OP, though I'm running on Windows SBS 2003.

    Anyone have an idea on how to get NOD32 to ignore the PlayOn server and let it do it's job unencumbered?

    A movie stream shouldn't be constantly analyzed and might have been automatically triggered on. If you open the web browsers section in advanced options put a red X (click until you see it) next to the steaming software. I'm guessing it's in the list there and probably got automatically ticked.

    I do not have any special streaming software, but I have this problem with you tube videos. Some of them stream fine, but some times the play back stops or freezes. It just takes forever to download. I am wondering if it is a possible issue with NOD32 or could it be something else, since I do not have any specific streaming software. I looked in the web browser section to put a red X but since i don't have any specific streaming software i am not sure what to disable (if anything).

    Sounds more like an ISP/youtube issue.

    I had the problem described with 2.7 of NOD32. If you went to %temp% you could see a iHxxx.tmp file grow as the movie streamed. If I watched the stream all day long (CCTV camera) then it would fill the hard drive.

    This caused a lot of video jitter.

    Version 3.0 of Nod32 did not have this problem for me.

    Are you on 2.7?
