I’ve just migrated from a windows installation of LMS to my first pi setup so please excuse the following rather basic questions.
Everything seems to be running OK albeit rather slowly – I currently have my mp3 files stored on a rather elderly Netgear ReadyNas Duo.
My main issue is that I have one playlist comprising 5580 tracks which when played causes LMS to hang completely.
I have changed the Database Memory Config setting to High but that hasn’t helped.
Is there anything else that I can do to solve this issue – smaller playlists seem to load OK.
I’m struggling to understand whether this is a memory, network or configuration issue.
Thanks in advance23. Januar 2018 at 15:42 #33610
You can try playing the playlist’s tracks via USB storage to find out if the NAS is at fault.
You can also always check the Settings/Reboot menu to check the system load at any given time.
Further, you can try disabling Bluetooth and built-in audio if you have a sound card.24. Januar 2018 at 19:54 #33630
as soon as i click the playlist, the cpu load goes from < 0.10 to 1.33 which leads me to believe that it’s the cpu that’s the problem.
i’m not sure whether using usb storage would help?
i see that max2play is available for some of the ODROID devices – do you think that the extra performance would help?

No real definitive guide as there are a lot of variables depending on your system. Another easy step would be deactivating WiFi when running via ethernet which also makes the system a little faster.
You could also consider splitting up the playlist into parts but I guess this is not an elegant solution.
