Re: Vsync? And whats best media player to use?

your network media stored in NAS?
how is it being shared? via SMB?

if SMB... in kodi try setting the SMB protocol version SMB1
and check again

been using Kodi since RPi3B
and its installed on this RPi4B-4G, also on the RPi4B-8G (just watched on that unit a while ago)

Why? Far easier to bind an IP address to a MAC address on the routers to give a static allocation via DHCP.
Yup....definitely this is the best way to get a "static IP"
the other way is problematic and fraught with perils...

as "Bones" already given the verdict (in bold letters) about the fate your RPi4B I will not delve on that....

but most likely you'll make another attempt to do this project....
