Some Kodi settings to help with Live TV Buffering

Some Kodi settings to help with Live TV Buffering

Below are some advanced settings to help with Live TV buffering. This will slow channel switch but helps with buffering issues. It is not 100% but will help quite a bit.

 

The following will need to be put in your advancedsettings.xml file. If you are not sure where that or what that is, please visit the Kodi Wiki for more information.

 

<pvr>

 

<minvideocachelevel>65</minvideocachelevel>

 

<minaudiocachelevel>65</minaudiocachelevel>

 

<cacheindvdplayer>true</cacheindvdplayer>

 

</pvr>

 

Below contains some Advanced Settings for cache/buffer settings. The file names have the general settings based on how much memory your device has. Copy the file to one of the following locations based on your OS. You will need to rename the file to advancedsettings.xml. Only use this if you do not have a advancedsettings.xml already. If you do then add the above to it instead.

 

Windows:

 

C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Ro aming\Kodi\userdata

 

Android:

 

/sdcard/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata

 

Updating Fire TV and Fire Stick.

 

I am assuming that you do not have a advanced settings.xml file yet.

 

1. Download the zip.

 

2. For Fire Stick extract the advancedsettings_1Gig_Mem.xml, for Fire TV extract the advancedsettings_2Gig_Mem.xml. Rename it to advancedsettings.xml

 

3. Now you need to copy the file to your fire stick to /sdcard/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata on your Fire Stick/TV.

 

3. Restart Kodi.

 

Now getting the file to the Fire Stick can be done several ways.

 

1. If your computer is shared on your network, then you can use the Kodi File manager

 

2. Assuming you used Amazon FireTV Utility to side load Kodi, you can use the Push File To Download Dir option and send the file over that way. Then you can use the Kodi File Manager to move it to the correct location.

 

3. Side load ES File Explorer and use that as a File Manger to copy the file from your computer as in #1. Or you can enable the FTP Server in ES File Explorer and use a FTP Client to copy the file over.

Here is the zip file:

advancedsettings.zip
