Description

When I browse smb folders which contains video files movian freezes in about 10 seconds.
According to a log file it tries to access every single file in the folder, then CPU ramps up to 100% and then it freezes.
I've tried last stable release, bleeding edge release - no difference.

History

#1 Updated by Terb Terbich almost 5 years ago

The problem was in low system memory
In config.txt there was gpu_mem=192 setting. When I changed it to gpu_mem=112 freezes have gone.

Ah, good to know.

Maybe I need to monitor available memory more closely like it does on PS3.

#3 Updated by Andreas Smas almost 5 years ago

How much memory does this RPI have? 512MB?

The first generation model B have 256MB, model B revision 2 have 512MB.
Mine have 256MB.
