  • Advancedsettings.xml - File settings to turn off Video Stream Buffer

    File settings to turn off Video Stream Buffer - (Some looping may be caused by Buffer when Video Streams "Glitch")

    If you have never installed an advancedsettings.xml file in Kodi's Userdata directory, you will need to make one.
    Use a good Text Editor and enter the following;

    *Save the file in XML format - (advancedsettings.xml)
    *Save this file in your userdata folder:

    Note: If you have an existing file, make sure the <cache></cache> tags, and settings between them, are between the main <advancedsettings></advancedsettings> tags.

    *Use a File Management program that you can see Hidden files and folders.

    --Operating system Userdata File path--

    Windows- c:\Users\<your_user_name>\app data\roaming\kodi\userdata\

    Android- android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata/
    *Note: Sometimes the exact path will differ from device to device. The Android userdata folder is usually inside of "sdcard" so the path might be /sdcard/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata/

    iOS /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/Kodi/userdata/
    Linux ~/.kodi/userdata/
    Mac /Users/<your_user_name>/Library/Application Support/Kodi/userdata/ (see note)
    LibreELEC/OpenELEC /storage/.kodi/userdata/
    Windows UWP %LOCALAPPDATA%\Packages\XBMCFoundation.Kodi_4n2hpm xwrvr6p\LocalCache\Roaming\Kodi\

    ***FYI -Choose what to buffer
    This setting will force Kodi to use a cache for all video files, including local network, internet, and even the local hard drive. Default value is 0 and will only cache videos that use internet file paths/sources.
    0 Buffer all internet filesystems (like "2" but additionally also ftp, webdav, etc.) (default)
    1 Buffer all filesystems, both internet and local
    2 Only buffer true internet filesystems (streams) (http, etc.)
    3 No buffer

    I am not a "BOT"!
