Oops, my bad. I mistakenly included a patch we're considering adding in future that disables the webserver by default (which is how it is in plain Kodi, disabled by default). The webserver is currently enabled by default in LE, but there are significant security concerns with the Kodi webserver right now and not enabling by default might limit the risk a little. I'll drop this patch in the next release which restore webserver enabled by default, until such time as a formal decision has been made about what to do.

Edit: The webserver patch doesn't appear in the changelog as I hadn't given it a description as it wasn't supposed to be included in a release... again, apologies.

Yes, as LE master hasn't been updated since 25 Jan so still uses the version prior to the merge of PR:56.

Install your TVHeadend from your Link and now all is ok, with the new Libreelec Versions. Thank you for your help.

Here's the #0316 crashlog when playing an unencrypted 3D BD ISO: http://sprunge.us/MeRR

I have noticed a difference in the BD menu though when playing unencrypted BD ISOs - there is no "Play main title" option:

Tracked it down to this change in code: [bluray] Early return if requested "dir" is in fact a file.

It does not open the playlist folder anymore. Compiled LE 9.0, added the code for testing. See the log of both versions (with/without) here

Thanks. I let ace know and the behaviour wasn't intended so that should be fixed tonight.

RPi3b.
I have a custom samba.conf in .kodi/.config. /etc/samba/smb.conf does not appear to reflect this.
With #322 the share on the Pi is no longer accessible from Windows.
Revert to #321 and the share is accessible again.
Any ideas?

Is the share available when using the stock /etc/samba/smb.conf (ie. remove your custom /storage/.config/samba.conf)?

Have you confirmed samba is enabled in LE Settings addon?

[scrapes egg off face]
Yes, Samba is enabled.
I renamed the custom samba.conf and all works!

The custom parts were there because I wanted to change the workgroup name and 'master browser' settings.
Presumably what I need to do is copy /run/samba/smb.conf to .config and edit it there?
I guess this is what "rebase on /etc/samba/smb.conf" means.
This is on #323 by the way.
Thanks for the help :-}

Edit.
Yep, did that, changed workgroup name and master browser settings, working fine.

Thanks for the update.

With #0323 there's a fix so that the previously static (and potentially stale) *.conf.sample files in /storage/.config now update to latest sample files shipped with the system, so you should be able to copy /storage/.config/samba.conf.sample to /storage/.config/samba.conf and then edit the latter.

Using /run/samba/smb.conf isn't actually a good idea as that is an automatically generated file based on your config file (either /etc/samba/smb.conf, or /storage/.config/samba.conf). Several modifications are made, including the addition of automounted shares, and enabling passwords (if configured).

OK, I'll have a look at the sample, and so as you suggest. Thanks for the info.

Build #0322 and "Update to samba 4.6.0, with SMB3 support - if you're using a custom samba.conf please rebase on /etc/samba/smb.conf"

Just a heads up that like agb2 this inclusion initially caught me off guard as well; as I had completely forgotten, that I had created a samba.conf from samba.conf.sample in order to enable quick access from Windows to [Storage] path = /storage

I removed existing samba.conf from .config folder then used new samba.conf.sample to re-create my custom samba.conf and all is working correctly again BlushCool

Thank you for clear warning in build #0322 notes Milhouse
