    Is this ok ?
    Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/kodi/userdata/advancedsettings.xml
    withaut dot /kodi/
    because it can not create a folder named /.kodi/

    No! It has to be here...
    Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata/

    You should have this folder already!
    Make sure you have selected "Show hidden files" in ES File Explorer.

    What I have got from Wikipage is all those settings can be written under one file advancedsettings.xml, Isn't it?

    Hi there, is it ok if i use "easy advance setting" inside kodi program to modify advancedsetting.xml instead of manually edit or put in the folder.

    the best buffer settings you can create manually very easily from AresWizard. you should try it anytime it works flawless and undoubtedly better from any advanced settings controller.

    I have a problem with MP3 Streams addon in that if I have buffer mode set to '0' all works OK and music play fine.

    However, if I have buffer mode set to recommended '1' and I choose a track only the first 20 seconds play, play then stops, if I choose play album the first 20 seconds of a track plays then it stops and goes onto the next track, as if it is in some kind of track preview mode.

    From Wiki:-
    0) Buffer all internet filesystems (like "2" but additionally also ftp, webdav, etc.) (default)
    1) Buffer all filesystems (including local)
    2) Only buffer true internet filesystems (streams) (http, etc.)


    Does anyone else have this problem with MP3 Streams?
    Does anyone know how I can have buffer mode set to '1' and still use MP3 Streams without the problem I experience.

    I only have this issue with MP3 Streams, all other addons work correctly, including Music, Radio, Movies and TV Episodes

    Do you have problems with other addons with buffermode set to 0?

    Thanks for quick response.

    I have been using buffer mode set to 1 for 18 months with no problems across all addons.

    I only just found this problem with MP3 Streams addon and found out I appear to be able to fix it (it works) by setting buffer mode to 0.

    Having only just found out how to get around the issue with buffer mode set to 1 and MP3 Streams, I have not been testing this option for long, in answer to your question I have not so far had any problems with other addons and buffer mode set to 0.

    However, is my understanding correct, that the difference between buffer mode 1 and buffer mode 0 is that with buffer mode 0 I lose buffering of local sources, which may cause me some problems down the line?

    I am puzzled why buffer mode set to 1 causes me problems when using the MP3 Streams addon, as the buffer mode setting should be addon indepent.

    I have no idea and that is a question for the addon developer. But if setting buffermode to 0 fixes the problem and doesn't affect other addons, then I would use that.

    Hi guys,

    I have got minix X7 with 250 official firmware. I am using minix kodi MINIX_XBMC_V16.3_20160911 with estuary skin.

    I started to use PVR simple client in order to watch TV.

    My problem is buffering issue during live tv. My advancedsetting file is shown below;

    <advancedsettings>
    <network>
    <buffermode>1</buffermode>
    <cachemembuffersize>157286400</cachemembuffersize>
    <readbufferfactor>20</readbufferfactor>
    <pvr>
    <minvideocachelevel>60</minvideocachelevel>
    <minaudiocachelevel>60</minaudiocachelevel>
    </pvr>

    </network>
    </advancedsettings>

    How can i solve buffering issue for live tv? I am waiting your advice.

    Thanks in advance..
