[Raspberry PI4] Can't watch anymore movies

  • I have a raspberry PI4 (4g of ram) connected to my nas via ethernet.

    Until three days ago I could watch movies and listening music fine but now watching movies is not possible because the playing jumps, the images are "mixed" and then it stops.

    In the log I can see this error trying to see a movie .mkv (with mpeg-4)


    Activating the debug log I can see these messages:

    I cannot find any other clue.

  • Neither can we, that is why we always prefer FULL debug-enabled log files, provided via a pastebin service/website.

    Ok, I restarted the raspberry and I began to see the movie (about at 16:06) and the full log could be seen at kodi.log?t=8f2b2h47


    Thanks a lot for any help, I like very much libreelec!

    Something must have changed during those days. Is the integrity of your video files still okay? They may be on a NAS, but that doesn't mean they are indestructible.


    I'm not a video expert, but there is constant moaning by the video player. And some audio hiccups too. Is every video you play this way? I can tell they are not the most legal of video files, meaning this is not an official video rip. So if the person doing the recode did a horrible job, there is not much that Kodi can fix.
