Was about to post my own thread here, but I think this might be the same issue. After installing the latest update I noticed that my Vero 4k+ sometimes hangs when i start playing a video. Sometimes just when one movie just ended and i try to start the next (same decoding), sometimes when i been playing music and try to play movie.
Visually, I press start, the spinning wheel shows up and just keep spinning. Most of the time it stops if i press the stop button, and if i press play again it starts spinning as before.
Only way to solve the problem have been to press the power button.
My Vero/OSMC reads the files form my Synology NAS, properly setup and have been working flawlessly since i got advice here on how to set ip up properly over a year ago. I have not made any recent changes in Router configurations or other hardware.
Busy looking for a new apartment now, but I will try to upload a log file in the coming days.
It does not sound like a related issue from your description.
If I were to assume your using Kodi SMB paths and it is related to a known issue, then I would suggest to either make sure your NAS and Kodi is configured to use SMBv3, enable settings>services>SMB client>Mitigate MTU issues with SMBv2, or switch over to system mounts. If your not using Kodi SMB paths, or you have already done one of those three things, then we would need to see logs.
OK, so I played a couple of short TV episodes. (wife was watching TV - not using kodi)
Did the controlling by the Official Kodi remote, and noticed after the third episode was ended that the “running count”, or current location shown to the left in the remote showed 30 mins, but the episode itself is only 24:37 long… somehow it just seems to have kept running (the screen only showed the spinning circle and the episode list.
i pressed stop on the real VERO remote button and started again, but only seeing the spinning disk. when I look at the Kodi remote, it looks as if the video is playing and the seconds ticking away.
I pressed stop again but now could not get back to manu and had to do a reboot by the power button before uploading the logs: https://paste.osmc.tv/ovixavevax
You do have autofs mounts from what I can see in the logs, but your sources are still using the Kodi NFS mounts. You only seemed to have added your music as a source using autofs, everything else is still using Kodi.
I really doubt that that is your problem, but I thought I’d point it out to you.
its appreciated - I really did think all were mounted through autofs. I did have a number of issues with my Synology NAS last december and ended up with long discussions with their support. Later I bought a second NAS - now music is on the old NAS and other media on the new.
I would highly recommend not editing your existing source as you’ll duplicate everything without a easy way to fix it. I would either make a new source for the system mount and then remove the original source telling Kodi to remove everything from that source from your library or just skip messing around with your sources entirely and just use a path substitution.
Now that the issue appears to have gone away have you tried replaying the same files that had issues to see if the problem was actually the files themselves?
Thanks, I was thinking the same thing - I suspect NextUp to be the culprit but have not had time to test it yet. After I turned off NextUp and Spotify and started the debug We have played at least 5 episodes (the same as before plus more from the same series that didn’t work before ) of Anime, 1 full (rubbish) movie and another TV episode with no issue at all.
The Amime series themselves I have already watched on other players (VLS on iMac and Infuse on ipad) without issues.
