Good day!

I've tried both beta & stable versions and both yield similar results when trying to play a large HD videos. Some time after starting a playback the video slows down and the sound stops working. "Some time" depends on the video being played. Here is a log file: At the moment of "hang" codec info shows 120% of load. I've tried legacy build with the same file, however the result is different. There is no 120% of load anymore, I assume the hardware decoding or what not works perfectly in this build (I've also tried software decoding, still works with 2 cores loaded up to maximum). But this build has another problem, it is constantly buffering :) What should I possibly do? Maybe try to play this file not via NFS share? (I can also make a log running a legacy build if needed).

I am using ZBOX-Zotac ID18 to run OpenELEC. Specs here:, however I have 1GB of RAM and lesser SSD capacity.
The box is hooked to a receiver, sound passthrough enabled.

Thank you in advance.
