LE 11.95: Problem with RPI4, 2GB Ram running out of Memory and freeze

  • At system startup approximately 750 of 2000 MB Ram are used. When I start a video RAM is allocated for caching but is not released after the video is stopped.The Problem is: After starting or playing several videos the RAM fills up to the maximum and the GUI finally freezes because there is obviously no memory left.Unfortunately, in the log you only see symptoms like “cannot write thumbnail” or “stream error” depending on which action caused the freeze.

    I have the problem with 2x RPI4. RPI5 with LE 11.95, 4GB Ram same Configuration works without any problems.

  • This usually happens when piracy add-ons are in use. We don't support such systems. Otherwise...

    Please provide a full debug log.
