Buffering issues for certain 1080p files

Never had issues before with buffering, but just started to watch a new TV show and in Episode 3 it started to buffer. Got a 720p version and that was fine.
It just takes ~20 seconds to start playing and then buffers continuously.
Rebooted the Kodi. Other 1080p files play fine, so don’t think it’s a network issue. Connected wired 100mbps to my NAS using NFS.

The “faulty” 1080p file plays fine from my Windows machine in VLC. It does have a bunch of audio streams and subtitles.

Media info can be found here

I’m on the latest update, it’s a Vero 4k.

To get a better understanding of the problem you are experiencing we need more information from you. The best way to get this information is for you to upload logs that demonstrate your problem. You can learn more about how to submit a useful support request here.

Depending on the used skin you have to set the settings-level to standard or higher, in summary:

  • enable debug logging at settings->system->logging

  • reboot the OSMC device twice(!)

  • reproduce the issue

  • upload the log set (all configs and logs!) either using the Log Uploader method within the My OSMC menu in the GUI or the ssh method invoking command grab-logs -A

  • publish the provided URL from the log set upload, here

Thanks for your understanding. We hope that we can help you get up and running again shortly.

Does it play from a USB Stick/Disc?

Did you try remuxing it with mkvmerge for example to see if the container has an issue maybe?
