When I use videoplayer to play music it starts full screen with 17.6 it always played music the same way paplayer does without full screen is there a way I can accomplish this with version 18

You can set which player is used in advancedsettings.xml... https://kodi.wiki/view/Advancedsettings.xml#audio

  <!-- Default audio player: paplayer or videoplayer -->
Let me try an explain why I use video player for music it's because for some reason pa player randomly pauses when I use it is there a way I can fix that
We will need a Debug Log...

  1. Enable Debugging mode.
    a. Go to Settings>System Settings>Logging and it should be the first option or
    b. press ctrl-shift-d on a keyboard
  2. Restart Kodi. Do not skip this step or you may be asked to do it again.
  3. Replicate the problem. Now that debug mode is enabled, repeat the steps that cause the problem.
  4. Upload the log using either the:
    a. Manual method to Kodi Paste Site. Log location is detailed here... Log_file/Advanced#Location (wiki) (see next section for more details), or
    b. Add-on method using the Kodi Logfile Uploader. (wiki)
    With either method post the address link in the address bar in a new post in your thread.
Note: Full logs only. No partial or redacted logs
