    Do not feel offended. I do know that it is open source and only a few people are in this project.

    It is a simple question. So sorry if you feel offended and please consider that it is difficult to understand why bugs like these are not fixed yet.

    And of course not anyone is a programer who wants to use these software. And not everyone is capable of buying new hardware.

    I used XBMC way back on the original XBOX and it had only 64MB Ram. It worked fine even with nearly the same amount of Movies and Series in my Database. So it is difficult to understand why 1GB is not enough anymore.

    Nearly everywhere I read "buy a new Pi with more Ram" I can't.

    So I fiddled with the Config and cmdline put in CMA=96 and RAM=96. It still crashes but less then before. But now playback H265 Files it crash


    After put more Ram in config.txt the system become super slow and lags raise the ram the system boots and worked but no picture.

    What are the Values to put in?

    Is there hope in the Future?


    LibreELEC 10 will swtich to the vc4-kms driver and V4L2 decoders where only a bit of gpu_mem is needed for H264 decoding but a lot of cma memory (curently testing with gpu_mem=76 and cma=256M/512M - 512M cma needed for 4k video playback) so things are going to change quite a bit. If there are issues with cma they'll need to be resolved anyways.

    I found this in an older threat. I figured out that with LE10 the CPU usage is quite high on h264 an mpeg.

    is there any way I can help?

    Again, no offence just simple straight questions.

    I ran in the exact same problem with nightly build.

    I changed it....


    still the same.

    I searched online and found a forum entry from dec. 2019 someone mentioned. We know some quirts on memory allocation we working on it.......

    Why is this Bug still in Kodi?

    Somehow asking for a "stable version", without any specific problem descriptions, does not give us that usual warm fuzzy feeling. Development on the RPi4 is ongoing, mind you. There is an initial test version for HDR decoding available since yesterday.

    Hi, thx 4 responce.

    As I said I do not have anything in the Log files.

    You can please explain how I get an error log and where to upload it.

    No offence really.

    It is very sad with python. I had such a nice Add-On for my display and now no drivers anymore because of the lag of "Adafruit.bbio"

    No offence folks. You do make a great job but.

    My Problem is the following,

    When I startet using Kodi/Libreelec on the Pi 5 Years ago it worked good. But from Version to Version it seems to me that instead of making it stable, more an more unnecessary feature in Kodi will implemented.

    If I do wanna use my Pi for Retro-Gaming I have the choice to install Retro-Pi or an other Distro.

    I really believe the most people use it to watch Live-TV and Movies/TV-Shows from a NAS.

    That is what I do. But in Pi 3 it is awfully slow and on my Pi 4 first Version it always reboot without any reason. I switched back to my Pi 3 now but it is not so great.

    I´m not a Linux Nerd or do have Money to Buy a new or better device.

    And what's the Problem with Python 2.7? Why get rid of it? I had an Add-On made myself that needs Python 2.7.

    I´m very disappointed. The Way Libreelec/Kodi is going since the first Versions on the X-Box is not so good.

    Is there someone who can help me made my Version for the Pi4 with old Python?

    I do need this to watch TV that streamed from my old Pi (now the Pi4) with TV-Headend.

    it worked in LE8 without any hiccups on LE9 it got a warning with Adafruit_BBIO.

    I testet the old libraries on raspbian with install using python3 install and it worked.

    why is it not supported? What can I do? Who can help?


    i am using a SSD1306 Display since Libreelec9 nightly it is not Working anymore.

    I do get this error Message

    i do need really help


    i made the files executable and netledPi works

    but on hddledPi I get this error

    Could not find required lines in /proc/vmstatFernseher:~/.kodi/addons/script.hddledPi.kodi #

    found this in the code but I do not know what it means.


    i trie to implement the wiringPi ""

    to use it with "" this.

    my Python Script look like this

    I can start the script but nothing happens

    What do I missing?

    This is inside my virtual.wiringPi

    Fernseher:~/.kodi/addons/virtual.wiringPi # ls *
