I freshly installed 19.1 because I exchanged a corrupt microSD with an eMMC module (aka RaspiKey).
In the fresh installation, video playback always leads to a total freeze. Then OSMC is not reachable anymore. It displays as offline in YATSE app then. Sometimes, a few minutes later, it is visible as online again but super slow. I hardly managed to upload the above logfile.
Interestingly the TV playback does not lead to crashing/freezing. TV is played via TVHeadend, and SAT>IP server on my Synology NAS.
All video files are on my Synology NAS shared via NFS.
Everything ran smoothly on this device before I reinstalled the OS. What has changed? Before I still had KODI v18. And I had a corrupt microSD. Now: v19.1 and eMMC.
The log files are long and I would love to get a hint for what I need to look in it. I would like to find the right area in the log file at least ;-).
It is a Pi3. The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+'s Gigabit Ethernet over USB 2.0 offers a maximum throughput of 300Mbps. It should be fast enough for a Pi3 to stream fullhd videos via NFS share and I assume this is not the root cause for the described problem. It might be another problem here but I doubt that this is the root cause.
I will try that now but I doubt that this is the root cause.
fstab: That means that I need to create an NFS share without any user/password protection, right? I would create a new one just for testing purposes and copy one video file there. Let’s see what will happen. I will report back here…
fzinken: Thank you for guiding me! Highly appreciated!
I followed a guide for that. The mount shows up in OSMC and also in the console but it is displayed as empty. I cannot see any files. It does not seem to be straightforward with Synology NAS, NFS, and fstab, as described here Using NFS with Synology .
autofs and fstab did not work. I was probably too stupid. I followed the guide and tried both, autofs and fstab. In both cases I could see the mounted shares in both environments, in SSH console with ls and in the file explorer of OSMC. However I couldn’t enter the folder and did not see the contents of the directory on the NAS.
Instead of wasting my time with it, I did the following:
Replace eMMC with another one (I bought three, and had one spare)
Tried playback of my videos right after reinstallation (success!)
Now incrementally and carefully doing my customizations and tailoring and closely monitor the playback stability.
Root cause for the stuttering and freezing I had is still unknown. I still doubt that it was related to NFS.
eMMC corrupt (unlikely)
any video add-on I had installed including dependencies
