Kodi Freezes on File Manager on PC.

34 posts in this topic

 Hi guys im going through this problem once i get on kodi and go straight to file manager to add the spartan wizard kodi freezes it wont even allow me to get the prompt that allows me to type in the link. Now i tried mostly everything to try to fix this i uninstalled kodi, I even installed  different versions of kodi and even forks and it all does the same thing. It even takes a while to start up kodi and before i had this issue it was really quick.  On top of that i wiped my pc which was my final result and hoping it'll fix it self thinking it maybe a driver issue and it didn't change a thing. Please if anybody had this issue or think that can help itll be much appreciated.

16gbs ram

amd fx 8230

asus gtx 780 

250 ssd card (which kodi runs on )

3 tb hard drive

Evening buddy,

My god you done more than i would have suggested and the specs are more than enough, You told us you used different versions of Kodi so no point going up that route but just incase  make sure you get Kodi from the Kodi site and not a 3rd party also stick to Jarvis 16.1 for now. You have not said what OS your using just wondering as I have tested Kodi on several OS's with no problems hence I am really interested in your problem here so want to help get to the bottom of it.

You've gone through the driver issue i see but just check you graphics side. OK windows has most graphics drivers built in but I have found in the past that they are not as good as the original manufacture drivers  for your card so may be worth not relying on windows drivers but installing the manufactures drivers and same with sound always try to use manufacture drivers if you can.

Apart from that i really don't know what to suggest but please keep us informed as I am really interested in whats going on also this is a good thread for others if they get same problems.

Ok I had this awhile ago too as I use a dedicated laptop for kodi . So first off IF you've tried to install 

and it failed , use your file explorer and browse to kodi and locate the addon for the beast or whatever

your trying to install , DELETE the whole folder as it holds some failed files . then back out and restart .

then start kodi again go to file manager and add the wizard , then back out go to addons / install from

zip / wizard and install it . then go to programs and install the wizard and your done if no icons or 

background make sure you have the right skin selected . hope that helps ya

 I tried to be specific as possible and i knew i left something out lol i am running windows 10. This is really odd because this never happen to me. i have been using kodi for about 2 years and also learned alot from techtimeruu videos to create my own builds and what not and im up to date with all my addons and i am aware i can download a andriod emulator to use kodi that way but it kinda defeats the creativity that way. if i do find a solved situation ill inform you :) hopefully some one reads this and know exactly whats going on because this is driving me nuts!  also i the kodi app directly from the website.

 The thing is kodi app installs fine on my pc and i made sure when i unistall it i shred every thing that has to do with kodi. plus i took it to the extreme and wiped everything off my computer thinking that will help but it had the same issue. one i go into the kodi app i click on file manager and the app freezes and it becomes unresponsive. after like 10 -20 min itlll unfreeze if i dont touch it and i type in the repo and itll freeze again . so itll kill the motivation to use it . Mind you all the other application i have on my computer run smooth and fast no lag or anything its just kodi.

There has to be something you have installed in kodi or your firewall . Like I said I have windows 10 and dedicated laptop just 

for kodi , I run iptv on mine and have about 10 builds installed for troubleshooting on here . 

Make sure your using Kodi Jarvis 16.1 and NOT ( Kodi Krypton 17 Its still in development ) 

But to delete all you can not just shred everything there will still be leftovers 

You need to browse and also show hidden files to browse to the leftover files to manually delete

browse to : C:/users/*Your username*/appdata/roaming/kodi    --- if there is a kodi file there delete it 

then reinstall as admin of computer and try that way ...

These test builds could possibly be unstable. Proceed with caution and always backup (wiki) your settings!

What is this:

  • These are test builds for anyone who would like to help with testing the DirectX11 upgrade.
  • No new features have been added to this version beside the current development done in Kodi nightly builds.
  • Make sure you have the latest driver for your video card installed and the most recent DirectX version. See Microsoft website for more details
  • The fix for the webserver crashing has not been integrated in these builds. So don't ask for them.

The main aim of this thread is to help identify issue related to the DirectX11 upgrade and not meant for general problems.

How to help:

Please include in your post:

  • Say if this was also an issue in previous builds or not.
  • A full debug log (wiki) posted on xbmclogs.com or pastebin.com
  • Possible crashlogs uploaded for download. Make sure you have the correct .pdb file placed in the install folder
  • The build date (in the download URL or in system info on Kodi). Specify which one you tried.
  • Details about your system (OS, hardware specs, videocard, driver etc)
  • Steps needed to reproduce the issue (play a movie, go to a file list, use an add-on, etc)
  • The more details, the better.
  • You may also post that everything is working as expected so we known current state of this development. In this case also provide full info.


Where to download:
Specific DirectX11 test builds are listed below. Other files in the "test-builds" directory are unrelated to this testing.
Builds will be updated on regular bases. Make sure you always try the most current one listed below before reporting problems.

Windows:

  • 15.2-DX11 Installer (12 November)
  • please also download the .pdb file here, rename it to Kodi.pdb and place it alongside the Kodi.exe inside the installation folder (usuallyC:\Program Files (x86)\Kodi). Re-download the correct file each time you are install another test build. This helps us to identify possible crashes.


Example post

Quote:
  • Hardware: Windows 7 64bit, NVIDIA GT275, driver-version 340.52
  • Debug Log: pastebin.com/xxxxxxxxxxx
  • Crashlog: Dropbox lin
  • Description: Video problems while playing back VC-1 files. This did not happen while testing KodiSetup-20150213-1f521fb-master.exe

These test builds could possibly be unstable. Proceed with caution and always backup (wiki) your settings!

What is this:

  • These are test builds for anyone who would like to help with testing the DirectX11 upgrade.
  • No new features have been added to this version beside the current development done in Kodi nightly builds.
  • Make sure you have the latest driver for your video card installed and the most recent DirectX version. See Microsoft website for more details
  • The fix for the webserver crashing has not been integrated in these builds. So don't ask for them.

The main aim of this thread is to help identify issue related to the DirectX11 upgrade and not meant for general problems.

How to help:

Please include in your post:

  • Say if this was also an issue in previous builds or not.
  • A full debug log (wiki) posted on xbmclogs.com or pastebin.com
  • Possible crashlogs uploaded for download. Make sure you have the correct .pdb file placed in the install folder
  • The build date (in the download URL or in system info on Kodi). Specify which one you tried.
  • Details about your system (OS, hardware specs, videocard, driver etc)
  • Steps needed to reproduce the issue (play a movie, go to a file list, use an add-on, etc)
  • The more details, the better.
  • You may also post that everything is working as expected so we known current state of this development. In this case also provide full info.


Where to download:
Specific DirectX11 test builds are listed below. Other files in the "test-builds" directory are unrelated to this testing.
Builds will be updated on regular bases. Make sure you always try the most current one listed below before reporting problems.

Windows:

  • 15.2-DX11 Installer (12 November)
  • please also download the .pdb file here, rename it to Kodi.pdb and place it alongside the Kodi.exe inside the installation folder (usuallyC:\Program Files (x86)\Kodi). Re-download the correct file each time you are install another test build. This helps us to identify possible crashes.


Example post

Quote:
  • Hardware: Windows 7 64bit, NVIDIA GT275, driver-version 340.52
  • Debug Log: pastebin.com/xxxxxxxxxxx
  • Crashlog: Dropbox lin
  • Description: Video problems while playing back VC-1 files. This did not happen while testing KodiSetup-20150213-1f521fb-master.exe

Stereoscopic 3D rendering:

Stereoscopic 3D rendering is only enabled on systems that have all the components that are stereoscopic 3D-capable. These components include 3D-capable display hardware, graphics hardware, peripherals, and software applications.

System requirements:

1. Windows 8 and later.
2. WDDM 1.2 video driver. (To check version of driver please run dxgiag on your PC and look at Driver Model at the Display section.)
3. DirectX 10 capable and higher video hardware.
4. 3D-capable display.

Also you need enable checkbox Stereo 3D settings for all supported displays in Screen Resolution control panel, as shown here:

Well like I said before , I'm on win 10 and all works fine here and installed without a glitch 

only other thing I can suggest would be disabling any firewalls you may have running 

and try to install again but AGAIN make sure there is no folders left when you check to see if

any there . I use power uninstaller pro and it sometimes still doesn't get all files

Hey guys, what seems to be the issue?

 Hey Tech it Seems like what ever i do my problem wont get fixed. Every time i try to go into my file manager it'll freeze my kodi application on my PC and i have pretty great build of a PC that should handle this with no problem. Any application i run is pretty quick but kodi seems to lag. once it starts up and once i click on file manager.Once i click file manager itll freeze and the prompt where i put the link at wont even show until 30 mintues later. i tried uninstalling it several times and i tried different versions of kodi and forks as well and all leads to the same results. i even went to the extreme and wiped my PC thinking it may be a driver issue but it wind up doing the same thing. Never in my 2 years of using kodi i ran into a issue like this. If its not to much to ask may you take a look at my computer through team viewer and see what may be the issue this is driving me Nuts. lol

mmmm The Saga continues I see,

I can certanally see why this is so damn frustrating trust me I wouldn't sleep until i solved this if it was happening to me.

@HeyitsHim just an idea do you have another machine/laptop you could test on to see if your getting the same problem as process of illumination seems to be what is needed here i think. If you do have another machine give it a try and let us know what your results are buddy

Hi There,

Right you are saying you have no issues on your laptop, mmmm then it defiantly has to be with some configuration on your PC but where is the main question. You obviously know what your doing I can see this hence trust me you are exactly like myself staying up all hours with problems etc. Right I am also going to tag the boss lol @Tech Timeruuu as I see he is now in this thread as I am curious on what the hell this problem is. Hopefully you and TT can arrange a time with you both on team viewer and we await the results from both of you. The most annoying thing I can not produce this problem myself as I have quietly behind the scenes on looking and following this  made up a VM machine and I am having no problem here so it's to me got to be down to ??? I just don't know what but await the results as I said
