RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - Milhouse - 2017-08-03

@yamcenutzer: When you added your user/domain/password to your sources (which I presume you did, based on previous posts) did you add it to sources.xml or did you use passwords.xml? The former won't work with a centralised MySQL db (that is populated with urls scraped without username/domain/password) while the latter will.

However without a debug log, it's impossible to know, really.

HEVC has no HW Support for 4K (2160p)?? If i play a h265 / 4K Movie hevc HW-decode is always on inactive (using Build #802 on intel NUC6CAYH)

with Build #721 is runnig HW Support for HEVC and also Build #801 is ok
Ok thanks, that must be the mesa/libdrm change - will pass it up the food chain.

Edit: for some reason thought you said #0801 was the last working version, maybe an earlier edit that I read before relying. Are you sure #0721 is the last working version? That would most likely imply a problem with ffmpeg changes introduced in #0722.

No sorry, all between #721 and #801 are running with 4k/h265.... ( i have forgotten to say)
Ok thanks, my reading comprehension is in the toilet today. So fine in #0801, broken in #0802. Not sure why you mentioned #0721... I'm easily confused! Smile

@pacoma2610 can you upload your debug log where you try to play back one of your h265/4K movies with #0802.

Neither, I just add it manually .
On a new machine,
- in the GUI (file manager-> add source->browse->add network location).
It then gets written to mediasources.xml and nowhere else.
- then copy over advancedsettings.xml, which contains the mysql credentials for the video and audio dbs

on a 17.3 (and long before), nothing else was needed for the new machine to access all the stuff on the nas.

I never noticed a 'passwords.xml'. That seems new (to me),

Re: debug.log: yes I agree, have the same problem with my 'customers' :-), but I'm not quite there yet, want to understand if I'm just not too dumb to see somethning obvious.
Also, the weekened is just one day away, wher I can spend a bit more time.



PS, this passwords.xml, wouldn't that also pop up on windows machines? I don't see it there either, and of course, the win machines have no problems with the nas.


Update: I think I got it:
After adding the media source, I have to create another, named folder, e.g. 'shares', or 'nas', using the now available 'media source'. Then a passwords.xml is created, and everything works.!!!

Wow...
I'm not sure if that was always needed or only now with LE 18, but whatever, it seems to work now.
Thanks for listening...

BTW, might be an idea to store this stuff also in the a central config db (with encrypted credentials, ofcourse)


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - Milhouse - 2017-08-03

When using a shared MySQL database you need the same sources.xml on all clients - Kodi will not access content that does not have a matching source in the playback clients sources.xml (for "security" reasons). So even though you've set up a new network location in mediasources.xml, Kodi won't play that content if you don't have a source for that share configured on the client in sources.xml.

passwords.xml isn't documented very well, in fact there's almost nothing about it in the Kodi Wiki. However this post might give you an idea: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/23453-emby-breaking-json-request/page-2#entry244619 where you can see it's just a path substitution.

You would configure your user/password in passwords.xml so that they are substituted whenever accessing the configured url. This is better than adding the user/password in sources.xml because if you change your password (or user) any urls already stored in your library will become invalid as they will continue to reference the old password or user (and newly added urls will use the new user/password - total mess!)

passwords.xml will also be created automatically if accessing a password-protected share and entering a valid username/password, then ticking "Remember for this path".

Also note that anonymous access (where you don't specify a username or password) is NOT working in Kodi 18 with Samba4 (ie. not working in these LE builds) but then you should get an error when connecting to the share, rather than Kodi simply failing to play back content. The solution is to use authenticated access, adding the user/password in passwords.xml.

Edit: Windows machines obviously don't use Samba (as in samba.org, the Linux solution) - they have their own SMB clients without many of the restrictions/limitations of Samba. So anonymous access and network browsing almost certainly will work for Kodi on Windows, but won't work in these LE9 builds that use Samba4.

Thanks, it's being looked into. Can you confirm if you still have this problem with #0803 as that's a clean build (#0802 was not). Shouldn't make a difference, but worth ruling that out just in case.

It's hard to tell as the debug log you uploaded has nothing to do with your crashlog.

Please enable debug logging, reboot, reproduce the crash, then upload the FULL crashlog (which includes the debug log).

Also, if this is reproducible with certain videos, can you upload one of them as a sample video file?

Sure, no problem. I know, DivX, and Xvid is history, i have just i think 10 videos encoded with these codecs. Every video i tested causes restart Kodi immediately (every DivX, or Xvid video). I will try better with crashlog video and will let you know (and also sample file from any of videos)... Thank you for your great work.

I noticed the same issue as pacoma2610 with HEVC 4K on files on #0802 and as expected, #0803 has the same issue.


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - Milhouse - 2017-08-04

@Wave_99: I've played your sample on an RPi3, Revo3700 (Atom/ION2) and Skylake NUC but haven't had any problems playing it so far.

Are you able to determine when this problem started for you, ie. which of these builds is the first to crash?
