    Tbh, that service looks pretty suspicious.

    In other words, you are subscribing to a piracy service and therefore you won´t get any support for that in here. Sorry

    But the hints given and a little bit of google will help you already ;). But for given reasons, I will refuse to create that file for you.

    Nothing personal and don´t take any offense.

    I tried apt-get, and it seems that libreelec has no support for apt-get.

    No, that's not possible with LE. LE is a read-only system which doesn't have any kind of package manager such as apt.

    If you want to use apt, you need another distro. But I guess that's not needed anymore as it will be available like cvh said.

    we would help, if you would have provided a full debug log. If you don't, we can't help at all

    Those snippets from above don't help at all. Also the reference to OSMC doesn't help as OSMC is a completely different distro.

    Please provide a full logfile at So we can at least be sure what you might have installed

    If you would tell us, which Add-on you would like to start after Kodi starts, we could write the script for you.

    In some ways, it depends on if the add-on is a plugin or a script. You have to use different built-in python functions to make it work properly.

    So please tell us, which Add-on you would like to auto-start.

    Ok, thanks for the feedback

    I purchased the DVD today (just because I want to reproduce). I ripped it using AnyDVD to an ISO file and I also copied the complete disc to keep the dvd-structure.

    No matter where I play the file from (from my NAS using SMB and NFS or from a USB thumb drive), I don't have any issues playing this movie.

    I don't have DVDFab to test with. And for sure I won't purchase that ;)

    In the end we can't reproduce your issue at all. Good for us, not that good for you ;)

    I did copy one of the broken films to USB drive and it wouldn't play there either.

    I don't see that in the logfile. All I see is, that you are trying to open the file from the SMB source. Could you please show us a logfile where you are playing the file from the device itself?

    I will also purchase this DVD today. That's the 2nd report we have with Disney related DVDs not play.

    I would also be interested in how you ripped that moviie? While using Windows I can use AnyDVD to either get the full DVD structure (like you did) or also get the movie in an ISO.

    While using Linux I use MakeMKV. And I highly guess I won't have any problems using that MKV file. But that's not part of the story. I'm interested why it doesn't play the DVD structure.

    Could you also please try to use NFS on your server to share the files. Maybe that improves something in regard to SMB.

    I'm a bit confused by:

    You are using an outdated scraper version. And the movie naming is wrong. It needs to be "Schlussmacher" only.

    From your log:

    The api key you use is:


    If you mind taking a look here:

    the new api key is:


    So, if you try to access the link from your log above:

    You will see some message that will look like this:

    "Invalid API key: You must be granted a valid key."

    changing the key to (please note, that I changed the API key AND the movie naming so it misses "Der "):

    You will get the specific results you are searching for

    Please try to update the "The Movie Database" addon and change the naming for the movie.

    but the result is always the same, how can I do?

    first...what Klojum said is 100% correct.

    Normally on laptops, depending on the specific manufactor and model, you can use some keypress-combination with the FN-keys and some of the F-keys (F1, F2....) to switch monitor outputs.

    Possible options might be:

    - expanded: the screen is exanded over 2 monitors

    - internal only: the 2nd monitor output on your laptop is disabled

    - external only: the laptop screen is disabled and only the additionally connected monitor is in use

    - mirrored: both screens are showing the same

    I guess you are using "mirrored". Either try to switch the monitor outputs to use "external only" or provide the output of the command:

    xrandr | pastebinit

    to see which monitors are currently active. Then we might be able to turn specific montors on or off.

    I guess as long as it doesn't conflict with our privacy and/or piracy policies there's othing to say against features, drivers or whatever you want to implement.

    Afaiu that's the whole reason for community builds. You guys implement something for someone who has a niche usecase (let's say some exotic driver). TeamLe decides that we don't want to implement that on our builds (for whatever reason). Then you are absolutely fine with keeping that driver (for example) in yourbuild which is also supported by you.

    I don't see a problem with that, as long as everything stays legal.

    You requested the logs from me. Have you found something helpful?

    Not sure if I interpret your log correctly. But it seems you disabled debug logging before the error comes up:

    Not sure where the underflow error comes from. But as it´s a PITA to get a full and unedited log from you, I would like to have those exact files you are using. I won´t inverstigate anything for that kind of issue I can´t reproduce with my own files anymore until we have some samples.


    I´m a TeamKodi member as well (so is milhouse ). Generally you are correct and Fernet is the correct person to speak to if it comes to video player related issues. But I don´t want to annoy him with tickets which we (Team LE) can´t reproduce. As already mentioned I couldn´t reproduce any issue while using full DVD structures or DVDs ripped into ISOs. So getting the same structure as the user in question uses could help a lot as I can try to reproduce on LE, Linux, Windows and OSX.


    At the top right next to the "search"-symbol there´s a button called "conversations". Click on that and at the pulldown menu you will see some "+" sign to create a new converstation. I´ll PM you and you can answer on that message.

    You missed to provide further infos...

    1st guess from my side:

    The "computer" you are talking about is a laptop?!

    2nd guess:

    You are using the HMDI out of your Laptop (if the 1st guess is correct) and therefore you have some kind of dual screen setup now. LibreELEC doesn't support dual screen setups. Normally you have the possibility to switch monitor output behaviour on your Laptop while using the FN-keys and you should have the following options:

    - extended: means the screen is extended over 2 monitors

    - internal: only the internal laptop monitor is in use

    - external: only the external monitor is in use

    - mirrored: both monitors will show the same thing

    3rd guess:

    I guess you have "mirrored" enabled and the resolution from your laptop screen doesn't match the resolution the TV might be capable of. So the HDMI out is limited to what the laptop screen is capable of which could result Kodi being displayed in the upper left corner. This can't be configured as LibreELEC doesn't support multi-monitor setups.

    Solution suggestions:

    Try to switch the monitor output behaviour using the FN-keys until you will see Kodi in full screen.

    If you don't have those FN-keys on your laptop (as you missed to tell the exact model you are using), you can try to ssh into LibreELEC and get us the output of: xrandr | pastebinit

    You will get an URL after entering the command above which should be posted here. That will show us which monitors are connected, in use and which resolution they are capable of. Then we can tweak something using some commands.

    To receive support in here, I would start with removing banned addons/repositories frist. And you have a bunch of them.

    If you keep them you won't get support.
