Kodi crashes when trying to open a stream #452
I'm submitting a ...
I have an Intel NUC System with Windows 10 x64. I tested the actual x64 and x86 build of Kodi, but the error is always the same.
When i try to open a stream with the plugin, the loading indicator is shown up but suddenly freeze and kodi crashes with a close. There is no error in the log which could explain it (in my eyes).
Steps to Reproduce
This error is since several month - I first ecountered it in with the first Alpha, but I switched back to Kodi 17 to wait still more stable . But now I think it's more an error in the plugin
Additional informatin on the environment
Intel NUC BOXNUC7I3BNH
Exactly the same issue here.
logs & crashdump provided here.
thx in advance,
@aherking please provide the full debug log, the excerpt doesn't help much.
@nickkindt please turn on debug logging in Kodi and provide the resulting debug log. The one you uploaded is missing debug output.
In both cases, since Kodi gets to the point to setup audio and video streams but then crashes, I suspect this to be an issue with Kodi itself and not the addon.
The youtube add on & soundcloud addon works fine.
Also started from scratch with x64 & x86 install (manually deleted kodi folders in program files & roaming directories), didn't help.
Changed redering method for kodi player from "auto select" to "software". Problem solved.
thanks in advance,
That's odd, because the addon doesn't use hardware acceleration due to Netflix's license restricitons.
Unfortunately there's no way to define render settings for specific plugins/video sources. You'll have to go with software for everything.
Closing this, as it's an issue with your local Kodi / graphics card setup.
