Full Version: Fix Kodi buffering issues
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I am using the latest version of Kodi on my Windows 10 computers to watch videos.

However, I often have problems where the videos I watch continually buffer every 2 minutes which results in frustrating video watching experiences.

So I would like to find a way of fixing this so that the video content will download far enough in advance so that when the buffering occurs I won't experience the delays that I am currently experiencing (like how YouTube handles buffering).

What are the best ways of doing this?
To receive meaningful assistance you will need to provide a full debug log.

The instructions are here... debug log (wiki)

If you are using the Basic Method, then ensure the following is applied...
1.Enable debugging in Settings>System Settings>Logging,
2.Restart Kodi
3.Replicate the problem.
4.Upload the log to Kodi Paste Site manually or use the Kodi Logfile Uploader. (wiki) With either method post the link to the log back here.

If you are using the Advanced Method ensure you have correctly created and applied the advancedsettings.xml file (wiki)

In both instances, you should see the word DEBUG throughout the log.

Note: Full logs only. No partial or redacted logs
Do NOT post your logs directly into the forum. Use the Kodi Paste Site. Post the link to your pasted log in the forum
