The # commenting out didn't work either, nor did the NT1.

The only change in #0515 as far as the LE Samba server is concerned was to enforce SMB2 as the minimum supported protocol, so if reverting that change isn't working (option 2, in my previous post) then either the LE Samba server never worked before with your Mac, or you're not copying/commenting the configuration file correctly (it will require a restart of LE after making the change).

Have you tried the LibreELEC Settings addon, this allows you to install the latest build (it's not yet perfect, but it mostly works). See the first post, note #7 for details.

Hi,

Having major issues with the latest build. When I try to play any video (mainly mp4 files with .h264 video) I get the spinning cursor for a few seconds and then a reboot. I can provide logs if you don't already have this under control. Not tried any of the recent builds, but 18th March was working fine.

All of my files are on Windows 10 SMB shares if this makes a difference.

Hope this is useful.

Mark

The HEVC playback improvement is insane. I tried a 1080p sample from a German DVB-T2 broadcast and it plays without a single frame drop (with older builds that sample was unwatchable).

Unfortunately
Code:
Thread 1 (Thread 0x506943a0 (LWP 2549)):
#0  0x76f150bc in memset () from /usr/lib/libarmmem.so
#1  0x763831d0 in ?? () from /usr/lib/libavcodec.so.57
Backtrace stopped: previous frame identical to this frame (corrupt stack?)
isn't very revealing.

Can you try this debug-enabled build #0520z: RPi2 and post another crashlog (can you also enable debug logging and reboot before playing your file).

I've tested a dozen mp4 files here on an RPi3 with #0520 over smb:// (Windows 7 Ultimate PC, using "client max protocol=SMB3"), and no crashes, not that there were any smb-related changes between #0518 and #0519 so it shouldn't be a Samba issue if #0518 is working OK.

Do you experience a crash when playing the same mp4 files locally from SD card?

Hi. I haven't tried 0519. Because this system is my main family setup, I'm afraid that if I test a build and there are problems, I have to switch back to a working build VERY quickly or I get in trouble!

I'll try to do the testing you ask this afternoon.

Best,

Mark

Hey,

first of all, thanks for the great work, updated my RPi2 on LibreELEC with Kodi 18 Alpha #0520 and most works like a charm! Smile

But unfortunately I have a problem. When I try to install any Add-on from the "LibreELEC Retroplayer Add-ons" I get the error: "The dependency on kodi.game version 1.0.29 could not be satisfied"

Would be great if someone could help me with this problem. :-)

No game emulators until they're rebuilt which won't happen until the add-on changes in Kodi are complete. Until then the last version of these builds working with game emulates is probably #0428/#0429.

Sounds odd, nothing in "journalctl -a"? No crashlog?
