Opening of a RTSP IP Cam URL via strm file ends up in reboot (bad smiley) since Nov update

Hi, i am facing a problem since last Nov. update. I have three IP cams, one via http:// and two via rtsp:// URL’s:


http:// is still working as ususal but both rtsp URL’s lead to an immediate reboot.
The strm files i am using for each cam contain only the above URL’s.

Except the Nov. update no system settings were changed and no additional addon was installed.

Logs: (masked some mounting credentials, therefore edited)

kodi.log shows no meaningful information to me:

It’s fixed in the staging repository.

  1. Login via the command line
  2. Edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list
  3. Add the following line: deb stretch-devel main
  4. Run the following commands to update: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade && reboot
  5. Your system should have have received the update.

Please see if the issue is resolved.

I also recommend you edit /etc/apt/sources.list again and remove the line that you added after updating. This will return you to the normal update channel.
