I had some RPis get fried on a wired lan connection, so I am changing everything over to wireless connections. (lightning through the DSL phone line, took out a bunch of network things, and has happened more than once)
I've have had some (studdering) issues with both audio and video, nothing major, but it does happen at times.
I read the kodi wiki on caching http://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO%3AModify_the_video_cache
but don't know how that really relates to the Rpi3 with it's limited amount of RAM. All my content comes from a local server, now also wireless...
Would this be acceptable and beneficial in advancedsettings.xml on a RPi3 running these nightly builds? I am assuming the Kodi 17 tag name changes apply to this v18 build as well?
The studdering video causes artifacts, but the audio never drops out while watching a movie.
When playing just music from the file server, I do get drop outs, which is strange since MP3s are only a few MB, I'd have though the whole song would have been transferred and cached at once. Is there a way to cache/buffer music audio?
