I’m using Plex4Kodi on my OSMC Vero 4K. The mediacenter reproducably crashes after a couple of songs (playlist, shuffled, doesn’t matter). It doesn’t happen on Windows with Kodi and Plex4Kodi, so I’m assuming this is an OSMC-related issue.
Only the youtube plugin and tubecast are installed besides P4K.
Can you see what kind of error it is, or any more details? It unfortunately crashes so hard that the kodi log doesn’t get updated once that happens, so I can’t debug this properly (I’ve got quite a lot of insight on the P4K code, as I’ve been working on it for the last couple of months).
OK, I’ve had another crash and have noticed that there were log entries from skinhelperservice right at the end. It was installed with the Aura skin and I’ve removed all of the remnants of it including the skinhelperservice addons now - they seem to have been from a beta repository.
Hmm doesn’t seem like a bad file - I just did what I promised above and created a new kodi playlist with all the items inside. Didn’t crash - I might have just been “unlucky” not to hit the file, I’ll try again tomorrow.
I don’t have the logs for the previous crash unfortunately.
I can get you the “broken” file(s) in question (all files that were played last before crashes play well in foobar and show no issues with the headers), would that help? Although those shouldn’t result in Kodi crashing, right?
I’m not sure to be honest. I’ve just been looking at the last files that were (to be) played before the crashes. From what I was able to gather from native kodi playlist not crashing, I think it might be an issue connected to how P4K “instructs” Kodi to play a file and/or how the file is accessed (HTTP vs. filesystem). Although all of those files are direct played.
The only thing those files had in common were comment headers from ReplayGain; all of them played well in foobar.
I might be totally wrong here, I’ll conduct more crash runs tomorrow and collect/post the logs.
I don’t, but in honesty, I’m not sure how I can help you at this stage.
This may be a tricky one to resolve.
What you could do is make a new playlist. If you’re anything like me, you’ll listen to the same music over and over until you’re tired of it. If that still exhibits problems it’s less likely to be a problem with the files themselves.
We need to work out if it’s an add-on problem or file problem. We haven’t had reports of this before but we don’t have many P4K users. I think the number of users will grow a bit as Plex have somewhat neglected their official add-on.
