I recently upgraded from a Raspberry Pi 2 to the new Pi 4 1gb to have a smoother Kodi experience. However, I experience lots of freezes and restarts whenever I move into my movie preview page.
I read lots of posts with similar problems and did the following:
I tried various PSUs including the original Pi4 PSU.
I changed the micro SD card.
I installed a fan to avoid overheating.
I updated Libreelec to 9.2
The Log shows that memory usage is always around 350mb (of 697mb). The CPU is maximum at 35%.
I noticed that the frame rate drops dramatically from time to time (it is fixed to 23.987fps but drops down to around 15fps).
Nevertheless, Libreelec is still crashing every time I open the movie preview.
The Movies are located on a NAS wired with ethernet.
All in all, my old Raspberry Pi 2 is way more responsive and faster. Also starting videos is faster.
I hope anyone of you has an idea of how to solve this problem!
