Hello!
 
My box is VU+ Uno 4k SE with Enigma2 (OpenPLi 6.2) and Kodi 17.6.

I have problem with playing movies. Almost every time I want to start the movie, the movie doesn't start. I can only see very short screen blink and nothing more. 

What I'm doing, is:
- start Kodi
- go to Menu->Movies
- scroll down to movie I want to play
- press start button on my remote

Below is my log file. In this particular situation, I tried two times start "Movie01.mkv" and didn't do anything with "Movie02.mkv" (so why there is also info about "Movie02.mkv"?):
Log file (Pastebin)

Can anybody help please?

Hi,

 

Did you know that you don't need Kodi to play .mkv files? OpenPli without Kodi can play them fine.

I also rapidly test Kodi on VU+ and nothing was working so I wonder what is the added value to install Kodi...

Hi!

 

Of course I know, I don't need Kodi to play .mkv files. But I like Kodi's functionality, like movie library, movie scrapers etc. Can you recommend something similiar, what works fine in Enigma2?

 

I had no such problems with OpenPLi 6.1.

 

I also have dedicated hardware player with Kodi installed, but since Kodi is available in sat receiver i try to reduce number of devices under my TV :)

Kodi on E2 box uses the E2 player to play MKVs.... here no issue...

 

Hi!

 

I'm aware of that. When I go to E2 media player and directly start the movie, there is no issue then.

The Kodi plugin is configured to play movies using E2player. In my opinion (I'm not a programmer) there is a problem when Kodi tries to call E2player and from unknown reason, E2player doesn't start. Such situation happens more frequently when Kodi is running some time. When I restart the box, it is more likely to succesfully start the movie. I've report this problem in Kodi forum and they point me to go here... How to diagnose where is problem located - in Kodi or OpenPLi ?

 

I'd like to mention about another issue - maybe it is somhow connected with previos one. Somteimes it happens, quite often, that Kodi randomily quits, whlie I browse the movie list. Is this known issue?

 

I had no such problem in OpenPLi 6.1

 

Robert
