Kodi Frrezzing during playback of streams

have you tried changing the buffer setting?

advancedsettings.xml

<advancedsettings>
<network>
<buffermode>1</buffermode>
<cachemembuffersize>377286400</cachemembuffersize>
<readbufferfactor>30</readbufferfactor>
</network>
</advancedsettings>

should be found (or created in) home/osmc/.kodi/userdata

If OP is using Kodi on Raspbian then the path is most likely /home/pi/.kodi/userdata

sorry cant help you there - I use ssh initialy to access the filesystem and then share the root filesystem with samba so I can edit those types of files from a windows machine

there is an add-on you can use but I've not tried it

I have similar problem.

I have two different streams from the same server. One works normally. The other freezes after 10 - 20 seconds of playing. No matter, I am using IPTV Simple add-on, or playing standalone file with link to the stream.

Both streams play normally from console omxplayer.

I have Kodi 17.4 from RetroPie on Pi 3 and wired internet connection.

Your Kodi debug log is needed to find your problem.
