Green screen crash

Just had two in one movie. What’s the cause?

It could be one of maybe 1000 different things. Without more information (and especially a debug log of it happening), there’s nothing anyone can do but guess.


Ok I think this is my log

Btw if this is a limitation of the Vero 4K. Would it be resolved by me upgrading to a new Vero or Nvidia shield?

I’m in no way bashing Vero. I love it and for most of what I do there’s no problems it just seems to be movies/or that particular add on.

Also second question I notice smartube can’t be installed on Vero.
And YouTube constantly has problems, for example my subscriptions randomly not showing then randomly one day weeks later working again

Is it possible to install smart tube on the device outside of vero like dual boot?

Thanks for any help I’ve had to restart 6 times to watch a movie

I don’t know if the URL with log is only showing for me locally in my network so just posting this too

I’ll have a look at this shortly

Thanks appreciated


Had a look at your logs.

Unfortunately you don’t have debug logging enabled so it’s hard to tell what the problem is. If you enable it and re-upload logs, it should give us some more insight as to what’s occurring

What I can tell you:

  • You’re using some add-ons (Seren with Real-Debrid) that we can’t officially support as they’re pirate add-ons; but we can assist with playback issues.
  • As such, it would be good if you could check playback of a file from local storage or an external drive. Even if it’s obtained from one of these sources, it should give us some ideas and rule out an issue with these add-ons directly.
  • The NVIDIA Shield certainly isn’t going to be an upgrade – it’s somewhat old and doesn’t support newer codecs like AV-1.
  • Newer codecs like AV-1 are becoming more prevalent with the add-ons and services you are using. They are not supported on Vero 4K/4K+ but are supported on Vero V.

The YouTube add-on is in a bit of a state of flux and @anxdpanic may be able to provide more details.

Hope this helps


Hi. Yes.
So this av1.
Is this likely the source of the green screen crash?
Is it likely that many sources are av1? Or will they just not display if not compatible with my Vero.
I noticed this add-on has a search with filters removed option.
It’s with noting that sometimes when I play a video the display has a green hue.
It works fine it’s just a strange green tint which I don’t know if it’s related to the green screen crash or my 3D TV which insists on detecting 3D even when it doesn’t exist and often forcing my pc game to desktop to tell me too.

I do notice you mention debug log.
I don’t know how to turn this thing on. I see the log uploader from the my osmc options but I can’t see anything here regarding debug

Thanks for clarifying there’s a problem with YouTube at the moment.
I’ve had problems with YouTube (on Kodi) on and off for years.
It just randomly stops working and just case randomly starts working again :man_shrugging:
I’ve never had this exact problem though with the error to use the official YouTube app.
I can’t even send YouTube videos from my phone via the kore remote app anymore, that’s why i asked if sideloading smart tube next to Kodi is possible. Possibly even from a usb pen drive? Is that possible?

Because the vast majority of my viewing is YouTube. Then Vero for my wife to watch British soaps via a VPN because we don’t live in the UK anymore and it’s georestricted .
Third most is TV series and movies via Vero

I’ll definitely consider Vero 5 as I will move this older device to the bedroom so I don’t have to watch these crappy British soaps anymore.
Just ideally I want a very powerful device that won’t crash and hopefully is a bit faster

I’ll try and figure out where this debug thing is and upload. Thanks


Advanced settings should be here

I can see osmc. But not .Kodi

When I create that folder it says it already exists. But I can’t see it . Does this mean I need to be logged in a special way,?

I’m simply using file manager on my mobile to access a remote location.

I also have juice ssh but don’t know the command to open/edit a file


Vero 4K doesn’t support AV1 hardware decode. Same for Shield. You won’t be able to play these files.

Vero V does support this codec.


Not sure if this is correct.
I still can’t figure out how to create,/, change/view advanced settings but saw an enable debug in another menu section which is showing me my frame rates and stuff

Yes, that’s the way the ‘scene’ is now going.

I see your log but don’t know much about the YouTube add-on, maybe someone else can advise,

He would need to disable AV1 in Youtube/Inputstream under Stream settings

So I’m choosing MP4 h264 aac96 get this screen

Unfortunately I think that’s a limitation of the YouTube add-on

Can you share the video id that you are trying to play?
