I am trying to capture the video interface on an Arris ad server. Using Wireshark I CAN see pings and I CAN see FTP frames from it and i can capture that data on wireshark. When it sends a video file I can NOT see the UDP frames that are known to be coming from it because it is airing an ad to a splicer. I have NO filters on. How can it be that I CAN see data coming from that port BUT I can not see the MPEG coming out in UDP frames?

The NetGear is a switch, so it will not forward traffic to your Wireshark PC unless you can configure it to do port-mirroring.
Have a look at http://wiki.wireshark.org/CaptureSetup/Ethernet for more info on how your capture setup influences what you can and can not see in Wireshark.
