rpi4 wired network issue.

  • hello! I use webdav(s) on my nas.


    The problem is that rpi4 using wired eterhet have so much performance problems that bluray rips is unwatchable.

    I have also tried with a usb-dongle with rj45 that doesnt work.

    There is two workaround for me that strangly works, built in wifi or using samba.


    I have reproduced this on two different networks with two different rpi4s, tried both netgear and unify switches, no difference.


    I guess kodi logs wont help here since this doesnt seem to be a kodi issue. I see nothing strange in dmesg so don't know how to go further.


    works:

    rpi4 wifi: webdavs and samba

    rpi4 wired: samba


    doesnt work:

    rpi4 wired: webdavs


    thanks for any help

  • My recommendation would be to test playback over SMB or NFS .. as this isolates the issue to WebDAV. If it works over SMB .. you can take the issue to the Kodi forums as it's their WebDAV code that's the issue. NB: I'm not sure anyone in current Team Kodi uses WebDAV so it's probably not a well-maintained feature, hence the suggestion.

  • it cannot be a kodi issue, but rather a rpi4/linux thing since it works with wifi.

    I will do some tests this weekend

  • i tried https, was same on webdav.


    but then I build master and it works fine. So if its too much to dig into I'll guess I can use wifi until le 10.

    same issue here :-(
    but thanks for the tip that webdav will work with wifi, couldnt believe it, tested it and you are correct.
    This is an interesting bug!
