Okay, I was successfully able to edit the FSTAB like was mentioned above but I’m not exactly sure what I need to do properly switch Kodi over to using those mounts. I read the Path substitution - Official Kodi Wiki link but was a little unsure where I go to make those changes. I also couldn’t find where I can change the ‘adjust display refresh rate’ to On Start/Stop. I’m running Kodi 18.6 if that helps.
If you wanted to just redo your library you could go to videos>files> context menu over a source, select “change content”, set type to none, click OK, and then say yes when it asks if you want to remove the items from your library. You would then context menu over the source, choose “edit source”, change the file path to point to your system mount, then click OK. You would then context menu over the source again, select “set content”, and then setup your scraper setting again. Repeat for each source you want to switch over.
Personally I think path subs are easier and you won’t lose your watched status, which IMO makes it better, but either way works fine.
Yes. Path subs are only needed here if you want your current library to use the system mounts. If you get rid of your current library, and then change your sources to point to the system mounts, then there should be no old paths that need to be redirected.
The file manager only has whatever shortcuts that are setup. If you are missing the “add source” entry then you can turn it on via settings>media>general>files>show add source buttons>
You can then add a source for root, or the /mnt folder, or whatever tickles your fancy to get to it. The file manager is independent of your library and its sources so this will have no impact elsewhere.
That was played from the file manager. My response about it not working properly was incorrectly assuming that my entire library was going to get updated automatically and point to the new system mounts but it sounds like that’s more of a manual process to add them through file manager.
Gotcha. Nothing in Kodi will look any different when your doing the path sub method. The way I verify it is to look at a log and search for “OnPlayBackStarted” and then look at the file path that gets logged. In your case it should show it opening /mnt... instead of smb://...
Does the stutter now only happen on files with Atmos soundtracks?
I just tried a non-Atmos movie and had similar issues with stuttering. It seems like it’s the most prevalent when I skip a few minutes ahead in the movie. Here’s a new log: http://paste.osmc.tv/ayebuxovuj
