If anyone is having issues with the latest linux mint (18) and kodi 17 crashing with an AMD gpu. Try disabling VDPAU in the Video Player settings and / or the updating python-openssl and crypto. Cheers!

if you want excessive cpu load you should do that, yes else post your Debug Log and the output of vdpauinfo so it can get fixed properly.

I'm just saying. I couldn't watch videos because it would crash every time I tried to launch a video and now I can. So I'm clearly better off than I was.......

Yeah but post a debug log, as all your doing is software decoding instead of fixing whats wrong with your GPU decoding.

I Know it'll prob run ok with a decent CPU but better putting the load on the GPU if possible so post a debug log.

So post:

vdpauinfo | pastebinit
id | pastebinit

with the user running kodi

Fritsch. I appreciate the help but I don't know how to post vdpau info. Are those 2 commands u provided at the end? Are they intended to be typed into the terminal while I have kodi running at the main menu? Or while I attempt to watch a video? Sorry for my lack in technical expertise.

Just run the commands and put your username in place of id in the second command.

you may need to run:

sudo apt install vdpauinfo
sudo apt install pastebinit

https://pastebin.com/MMrEUHQN

now as for "id | pastebinit". when you say username, is that my computers name? like my linux login name or is this a kodi username? If its a kodi username, I have no idea what that is?

it will be the username from your login. That might be necessary to verify to which group the user might belong and to what the user might have access or not.

Don't be scared. It won't ship any sensitive data.

thanks guys for the help! but unfortunately it doesnt seem to work.

[email protected] ~ $ cachorro | pastebinit
cachorro: command not found
You are trying to send an empty document, exiting.

If it helps any theres only one user on the comp and its the default one which is the one i use. Also i do have a side bit of info if it helps. If i use the latest stable ubuntu operating system, i dont have the issue. but i prefer linux mint so here we are lol

you are not member of the video group, fix that and reboot
