I have been plagued with ‘sad face’ screens for some time. I first thought it was random.
The crash is happening whenever I scan the libraries for updates or when I browse a given SMB directory. At first I did not get a particular file.
I disabled the watchdog addon.
I checked my SMB access to my NAS.
I moved the Kodi database to MySQL. I planned to do it but never got the chance. I did it because I thought it could come from corrupted database after a power outage.
I finally got a kodi.old.log with a CSMBFile::Open line at the end. It was a WMA file. I checked I could access it from another computer. I converted it to MP3 and Lo! the issue still happens, but on another file later on the scan.
I have looked for a similar issue on the net but I may have missed it.
I am on Vero4k. It still happens with the August update.
I could not remember at what point in the past it didn’t happen (I have not added much to my music library recently).
I’m having the exact same issue.
I can tell that it has to be OSMC related. I was using Kodi under Win10 before and there the crashes did not occur. I don’t think WMA and Linux are best friends
Ofcourse I want to get rid of wma files but that’s not something I can do in 1 day. And probably other people can come across this issue too.
So a fix would be great
Were you using the same version of Kodi?
I used both in the past v17 and v18 … both were fine for the last 2 years and had different updates.
Let me know if this is still an issue after Kodi v18 stable is released for OSMC and I will investigate.
Hi, just came accross this problem.
Debug log shows this as the last line:
20:54:57.432 T:3887067888 DEBUG: CSMBFile::Open - opened smb://USERNAME:PASSWORD@nas/Media/Musik/Jazzanova/CD I/01-4 Hero-We Who Are Not As Others.wma, fd=10000
Then Kodi crashes, there is the sad face and it restarts.
I’m on testing, 2019-02-08 with Vero4k+.
On two other devices (RPI3 and PC) with LibreELEC 9 the music database scan works.

I can confirm that this is definitly related to the OSMC build for the vero4k. I have a Raspberry pi 3 with OSMC december build and have the same OSMC december build on my Vero4k both pointing to same music library on my NAS and it only crashes on the vero. I had to take out all my wma’s and it scans fine.
Can you try with a Kodi v18 test build: [TESTING] Kodi v18 release builds
I am also having same issue on kodi v18 (Not testing)
On all of my RPI s same library works wonders
It is working if I copy the same file that does not work onto internal storage
I have this very same issue (WMA files over a SMB share make Kodi 18 crash; with latest OSMC release from November 2019). I thought that’s a problem with the new music library thingies from Kodi 18 and some of my music files and didn’t bother to investigate – but now I did.
It works without a problem, if you mount the SMB share via
/etc/fstab instead of via Kodi, as is explained here: Configuring fstab based Samba share mounts
Apparently, Kodi’s SMB-Code has some serious bugs in it.
