Thank you for the detailed post.
Yes, I am able to do all that and i could invest an hour or more to find the best solution that will allow kingroot and kodi to work perfectly fine together..
Or I could invest 5 minutes to remove kingroot (a software that i don't really need) and fix the issue that way.
Well, as my time is valuable to me I choose the faster way and removed kingroot. And look, the problem is gone. Hurray!
There is a clear cause and effect here.
1) Kodi workes flawless
2) Kingroot was installed
3) Kodi stops playback with a black screen in random intervalls
4) Kingroot was removed
5) Kodi works flawless again.
But yes, it could be my Internet connection (well it is the same with and without kingroot), or my network (oh it is also the same) or the NAS (well, it is the same) or the file on the NAS (right.. it the SAME), or the version of the AFTV or Kodi... But it seems unlikely, because none of that changed.
Kingroot is the only thing that changed, the only variable. And removing Kingroot fixed the damn problem.
