Direct play mkvs randomly stop and change to direct stream

Jesse barker wrote

Hi all,

I have had a weird issue with the last 2 movies I watched on my Roku 3. Now I use Handbrake to encode all my Bluray discs into MKV files with settings specifically designed to work with the Roku devices so they will stream as Direct Play, and until now have had no problems with dozens of movies watched. Recently, I have been watching a direct play stream, when randomly the movie will cut out, the Roku will buffer for a few seconds and then carry on where it left off but the stream type has changed from Direct Play it has changed to Direct Stream! Any ideas on what to look for in the logs as to why it happens?

Please help. 

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
