I have read the discussions about this issue but the resolves seems different every time.
I previously (a month ago) had OSMC on a Raspberry Pi 2 with no issues playing mov files from iPhone. Never.
The files are on a self powered USB-HDD connected to the USB-port. I store pictures and movies taken from the family’s iPhones on the HDD to watch on the telly. That’s why Vero/OSMC is better than Apple TV.
Now when trying to play these mov files on my newly installed Vero 4K+ I get the same issues as others get. No problems watching pictures or mp4 files from the same drive.
When pressing play the Vero freezes while showing “Buffering …” on the screen.
I login via ssh and run the cmd: reboot
The Vero shuts down correctly but does not reboot
I have to unplug and plugin the power cable.
The Vero boots up
I can’t reformat my mov files because there are a lot of files from many years…
Is there a simple solution or do I have to revert back to running Raspberry Pi 2 again?
The most simple solution is to provide a useful support request so that the built in Kodi debug logging feature can be utilized to determine exactly what the problem is and a useful solution can likely be provided.
To get a better understanding of the problem you are experiencing we need more information from you. The best way to get this information is for you to upload logs that demonstrate your problem. You can learn more about how to submit a useful support request here.
Depending on the used skin you have to set the settings-level to standard or higher, in summary:
enable debug logging at settings->system->logging
reboot the OSMC device twice(!)
reproduce the issue
upload the log set (all configs and logs!) either using the Log Uploader method within the My OSMC menu in the GUI or the ssh method invoking command grab-logs -A
publish the provided URL from the log set upload, here
Thanks for your understanding. We hope that we can help you get up and running again shortly.
Thanks for quick response. Will follow the developments on the other threads. On the other hand Vero 4K+ is very snappy. It’s a joy browsing pictures and other medias. A great product I really recommend.
Nope, that is just the mediainfo for the file. After that comes up you have to click on the upload button at the top of the page. If it starts and then after a few seconds gives a KO message then you have to login at the link I posted above and then try again. If you were able to successfully upload it you will get a message to that effect where it shows the upload progress.
It did not go through. I think the message is “completed” when it works. Did you go to https://my.osmc.tv/my-account/ and login there first before trying to upload? It is the same login as the forum but the uploader is still a bit beta and the sites have not been linked together yet.
