    KODI / XBMC media center problems


    I have been running XBMC , then KODI for several months . Mostly on a Windows 10 PC . A few weeks ago , I started having problems on the PC . KODI would play video / audio files from my hard drive , just fine . But when I tried to stream a movie or TV show over the internet , with KODI , only the audio would play .

    I tried to un-install & re- install various versions of KODI . No joy . Then tried to revert back to XBMC . Same problem .



    I suspect Win 10 took an update that messed up my drivers / system ? Lost sound that way , a few months ago .


    Help , please .


    God bless

    I'm having the same problems, but I downloaded KODI to try to solve the problem, which it didn't.

    Mine works fine. Maybe it's an internet connection issue?

    It's not just about if it works or not. It depends on your bandwidth. You have to have a fair bandwidth to watch online videos. Maybe you do have a good bandwidth but there's an issue with the service at the moment. I don't see any other issues because before I replied to this thread, I downloaded and installed Kodi to try it myself first. Then I installed some plug-ins to watch TV and it worked in one go. Or you can try re-installing Win 10. Most issues get fixed with a clean install.

    All I can say is I had enough bandwidth to run KODI in the past & I can play a YouTube video OK .

    I suspect you are right , a new install of Win 10 would probably solve the problem , but if the problem is caused by a Win 10 update , it will reappear when that update returns .

    Plus , I would probably have to re-install my software . :-(

    Thanks ,

    If you do a clean install, and I don't think anything else would be possible if you already have Build 10074 installed, you will definitely have to reinstall your apps.

    Kind of a dinged if you do and dinged if you don't situation. On the one paw . . . On the other paw . . .

    For this very reason, I keep a minimum of software installed on my Windows 10 test machine. Uhhhhhh, looking at my Quick Launch Bar, maybe I've gone overboard just a tad. And I'm about ready to reinstall Build 10074. Sigh . . .

    Are you upgrading your internet? Remember, it's not just the service speed. Make sure your router is also capable of running the speeds you have. Should be at least wireless-N and go for dual band router if you have a PC that is dual-band capable. It really makes a big difference.

    Good luck to the OP.

    Upgrade my foot! I think the speed I have is less than what dialup (remember that?) would be! I'm supposed to have a lot more speed (paid extra to get it) than .21 Mb! I used to be able to download 3 GB in an hour or so, rather than the ten to twelve hours it now takes.

    My Linksys router is an EA6400 AC1600 Dual-Band Smart Wi-Fi Router with 4 X 10/100/1000 Up to 450 (2.4 GHz) + 450 Mbps (5 GHz), so I guess it's an OK router.

    Edit: Forgot to say that Monday afternoon should bring my ISP's tech to take care of the problems.
