I’ve got an issue for some months where it takes a long time (10 secs) after pressing play for movies to start playing. All of my files are stored on a Synology NAS using NFS.
I’ve read this Vero4k+ long delay after pressing play, but I don’t have this setting on.
I’ve read the log, there’s some errors, but I cannot understand what are they and how to fix it
try kernel mounts (fstab or autofs), rather than kodi soft mounts. IMHO autofs is the easiest way to set it up:
Won’t that affect my current library?
Edit: path substitutions… I’ll give it a try @Tom_Doyle, thanks.
Have you tried without your custom cache setting?
Have you checked your network speed with iperf3?
Nope. How do I change that?
No, I didn’t checked my network speed, but I have no other speed problems.
I did try the kernel mounts and it did improved things a lot!
But I screwed my database when trying to change paths instead of using path substitution
I’m currently trying to do the same thing with my music database, but I really don’t want to damage anything.
Well be removing it from advancedsettings.xml where you included it.
Then just stick to path substitution.
I forgot about that. Sorry.
Well, after switching to kernel mounts instead of kodi soft mounts, it was solved.
But, after a few weeks, the problem is back.
I tried removing the cache settings as fzinken suggested. It did not improve anything.
It’s not really a “problem” as everything is working, but I don’t understand why and it’s kinda annoying…
Would suggest to investigate your network with iperf3 and maybe if using wireless change channels.
Yes, I’ll test it. Thanks.
