I have a 3B+ running LibreELEC 8.2 and Kodi 17. It's connected to my router via Ethernet. Also I have a 3TB external NTFS harddrive connected via USB.
I wanted to be able to stream all my media files from a central device but so far I ran into multiple problems:
- Sometimes the playback through UPNP (with VLC player on my PC) is really stuttery and even freezes totally at some point. SMB is even worse. The PC is connected via Ethernet (DLAN)
- Not all files of a TV show are being recognized (i.e. only 50 of 100 episodes are listed)
- Streaming from a Samsung Smart TV with DLNA also froze after a couple of seconds. However, I seemed to fix that by using a Ethernet connection to the TV.
- Trying to stream from a Fire TV Stick, also using the VLC app, only worked the first time and then never again. But this might also be due to the VLC app.
Any suggestions on how I could solve these problems? Before LibreELEC I used OSMC with similiar issues. When playing any file locally from the Pi everything works perfectly.
