Vero 4K crashes

My vero crashes constantly, I’ve rebuilt a couple of times, changed skin, nothing seems to work.

Here’s the log…

Looks like Kodi is running out of RAM:

Jul 16 12:59:55 osmc kernel: Out of memory: Kill process 2633 (kodi.bin) score 602 or sacrifice child

This could be caused by a resource hungry add-on.

Can’t see anything I’ve installed running, just osmc and updates. What else eats ram?

It’s particularly bad when browsing movies, I can scroll through about 6-10 titles then bang it’s crashed

Can you reproduce that wth the OSMC skin?

Here you go, thanks for the efforts.


Kodi still runs out of memory and dies.

Crash seems to occur with: 2022-07-18 08:26:20.725 T:2722 DEBUG : Caching image ‘’ to ‘6/615035a1.jpg’:

OK, so what does that mean, should I be deleting the fanart?

I’d try that, yes.

OK still having issues. I deleted the fanart, and then did a complete rebuild. That stabilized things for a while, however crashes have now returned - - and seem worse then ever. I must admit to my patience wearing very thin now.

I had the same issue when scrolling through the movie list. Solved by: Settings > Media > Videos > extract thumbnails to off. Might be worth trying?

I’m bored with this now, I will be junking the OSMC box and buying something that works.


You didn’t post for a while so we assumed the issue was resolved.
I’m sorry that you are still experiencing a problem.

Kodi is still crashing because it’s running out of memory. This is rare.
You may have a corrupt file in your library which is causing this.

I can provide some extra steps for locating the issue if you are willing
