    Question about buffering while watching movies

    Something tells me you didn't read even the first post in the thread. No matter though, I got it sorted.

    Question about buffering while watching movies

    I only ended up watching one movie, but it was nearly 3 hours long and played great. I paused it for 4-5 minutes at the beginning while we got ready to watch and in that time it loaded about 1/5 of the way through, and then it stayed that far ahead for the entire movie. Normally no matter how...

    Question about buffering while watching movies

    Since there were no responses re how big of a cache and I can't hardwire it yet I decided to have a bit of a fiddle. In kodi free memory was around 490mb, but since I wasn't sure if using it all would slow my box down I decided to work from a more conservative number of 400. So 400/3 x1024 x1024...

    Question about buffering while watching movies

    Thanks, but I can't right now. You don't think changing the cache settings will help at all? I was hoping that was the problem as I have zero issues streaming tv episodes.

    Question about buffering while watching movies

    Sorry, should've mentioned. This box is using wifi and gets about 30-35mbps, unfortunately not practical to wire this one right now, but I have another that is wired in that gets about 40mbps so not a huge difference anyway. Will likely adjust the settings on them both, but more concerned about...

    Question about buffering while watching movies

    Hi, i'm able to stream tv episodes fine, but often when watching movies I either can't get it to load enough at the beginning to get it to start without stopping to buffer again nearly straight away, or occasionally it will seem to go well then suddenly do this part way through. Right now I am...

    Request Parental control add on.

    Took a look, there is actually two in the add on installer. The one called universal parental controls can block things by ratings so that is actually exactly what I was looking for, thanks. When I have the time soon I will test it out and see how well it works with the addons I have.

    Best skin for low spec smp

    Cheers, will take a look at those soon. From googling it looks like "mimic" might be a good option to if anyone else is looking.

    Brand new to kodi

    I'm fairly new so can't help with your actual problem, but when you load kodi it will tell you what version you have on the loading screen under the kodi logo. For example mine says "isengard 15.2".

    Request Parental control add on.

    I think that is the one I was looking at that only blocks whole addons but I will check it out just in case, thanks.

    Best skin for low spec smp

    Right now I am using confluence but want to try something different. Aeon nux seemed a little slow. I am using a kaiser baas smp (android). What is suitable or should I stick with confluence if I don't have a htpc?

    What music addons do you use?

    I use google music exp. I really like it. The only issues i've come across is you can only make a radio from a song in your library, but to add something new to your library takes a long time as it reloads the entire library from scratch very slowly. I did notice yesterday though that there is a...

    Request Parental control add on.

    I know one of these already exists, but this simply blocks whole add ons. I would love to see something that could work in conjunction with add ons to just block the adult content, so you could set it for whatever rating you want, PG and under for example. I'm not sure if this would even be...
