I am seeking some help interpreting my debug log files to determine why large video files randomly quit during playback.
I was successfully using Openelec 6.0.3 on a Raspberry Pi3 for some time. I recently decided to upgrade to the latest stable version of Libreelec (7.0.2).
I did this not as an upgrade, but a complete new (fresh) install.
Since then, I have been having problems with movies being played back via smb (or nfs) - they randomly just stop and exit. There's no buffering indication or any indication for that matter. It's not always in the same place or the same frequency either.
Being that it behaves normally with Openelec 6.0.3, I have mostly ruled out network problems because it’s the same Pi and adapter, just new Libreelec software. Also, live TV can play on for days without a hiccup, and most of the TV that we watch has far higher bitrates than the movies that 'stop' themselves.
I can copy the whole movie to the RPI's SD card in 15 or so minutes over the same network without issue, and have even changed the buffer mode to '0' so as to buffer the playing movie on the SD card rather than RAM and it still quits. Although, playing the file locally (after copying to SD card over network via smb) works fine.
I enabled debug mode and tried to peruse the log for info, but nothing stands out to me. I was hoping that somebody with better eyes could have a look and see if they spot abnormalities.
On a side note, I also have a Raspberry Pi 2, and just today did the same upgrade to see if it would also exhibit the problem, and it does. Once I put Openelec 6.0.3 back on, everything behaved normally.

Thanks for looking.
