    Okay, my X8 Plus not a octa core but with the settings as suggested in the Kodi-wiki
    kodi recently crashed. For fast caching i set my anvancedsettings to this:

    >buffermode<>2<
    >cachemembuffersize><69750304< (around the half of the size what they suggest)
    >readbufferfactor<>10<

    buffermode anything above then 2 resulted not in a faster read-ahead.
    the mem buffer size greater then the here showned caused kodi to crash
    as even a read factor over 10.

    You have to play a bit with your settings because they affect from the speed of your internet
    connection and the latency of your home network.

    Hello, how do I insert these instructions into the easyadvancedsetting plugin?

    <Advancedsettings>
    <Video>
    <Adjustrefreshrate>
    <Override>
    <Fpsmin> 24.99 </ fpsmin>
    <Fpsmax> 25.01 </ fpsmax>
    <Refreshmin> 24.99 </ refreshmin>
    <Refreshmax> 25.01 </ refreshmax>
    </ Override>
    </ Adjustrefreshrate>
    </ Video>
    </ Advancedsettings>

    it would be far easier to edit the advancedsettings.xml file manually yourself.

    The way i would do it is to copy the file to my PC , edit it with Notepad ++, and then send it back to the minix overwriting the existing file.
    You would need to restart Kodi/xbmc to have it take effect.

    Can you explain better? How do I create the file and how do I insert it in advancedsettings.xml?

    1st off do you already have an advanced settings file and why and what are you trying to achieve with the instructions you have presented you wish to insert ?

    These advanced settings are for Kodi.

    It appears a lot of users are complaining about perfect player buffering. The author states there is plenty of buffer setup and suggests using a different decoder, check internet speed, and go to android settings/apps and flush perfect player cache. Maybe choose another player?

    Hello Higgs, I hope you do not mind another question about this!
    I was trying to follow this thread to add Frederick's XML file to our U9-H. Please could you explain where to find the "userdata" folder?
    Many thanks in advance.

    Hello Villa, many thanks for the quick reply:
    "Enable Show hidden files in ES File Explorer then navigate to here...
    Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata"
    I would never have found it!
    Will give it a try later.
    Thanks again.

    To get the optimal settings just add the ares-repo in your sources. The ares wizard have an option
    to get for any device the optimal settings and writes the advancedsettings.xml. GOTCHA!! :D

    With buffermode 1 315MB caché and readbufferfactor 10 even the clogged U-9 works flawless.
