Radio streams playback freezes LibreELEC/Kodi

  • Hi all,


    Over the past several months, I've been constantly running into radio streams playback freezes with LibreELEC/Kodi. I believe it has been happening over the last few 3-4 versions of LibreELEC, starting with Kodi 17/LibreELEC 8. I am currently on LibreELEC (official): 9.2.0 / Kodi (18.5 Git:18.5-Leia).


    It happens with all radio plugins, including Radio (plugin.audio.radio_de), TuneIn and Shoutcast2.


    Most radio stations hang, sometimes the same station hangs or works. 99% of the time I get freezes and need to reboot..


    I have noticed these older reports

    #17210 (Kodi freezes at opening internet radio statio stream) – Kodi - TRAC

    [LE 7.90.009 and 010] Kodi freezes at opening a netradio stream

    However, according to them, it should have been fixed by now.


    I have enabled debugging and recorded the attached log.


    Is anyone else experiencing this? Any thoughts/suggestions?


    Thanks a lot!
