OSMC freezes 5 secs after starting video, CPU >100%

Hi, complete newbie here, got osmc installed and I’m trying to set it up as a home media center, on a raspberry pi 4 connected to the television. However, when I start playing a movie, the video will freeze about 5 seconds after starting the movie. Similar behavior happened earlier today with a streaming app.

here’s a log: https://paste.osmc.tv/uqimupiceb

this is an osmc install with an external ssd that kept the media files. how can I fix this issue?

Have you tried without changing kms to fkms?


include config-user.txt


There were other issues, I’ve ended up starting from scratch & freshly reinstalling the osmc image. Atm no more issues.

thank god for a brute force approach

I’m having similar issues with online streaming content. OSMC freezes ~5 seconds after starting to play.

The problem is this “fake KMS” mode, fkms. In my case I need it for Steam Link to work however.
