    Kodi Crashing - Updating Library TVDB

    Quick note... Have seen this happen for the last day or two.

    Kodi scans your library and crashes right after or while it is updating your TV shows.

    The way to fix this seems is relatively simple - stop using TVDB as your source update library and switch to The Movie Database

    Yes, the TVDB updated their api which causes the scraper to crash and crash the app as well. I had mine set to scrape the library at start up, took me about 50 tries to manage to turn off the setting before the app crashed

    Are there reasons to use Kodi instead of Plex?

    Kodi plays media from your NAS directly while Plex transcodes it. Kodi needs to run on good hardware while the NAS can be slow, for Plex it's the other way around. Playing 4k HDR movies on something like the Nvidia Shield is much better with Kodi.

    This issue happened to SPMC (a Kodi fork) earlier this year, so I migrated into MrMC which is another Kodi fork from the SPMC developer which works nicely on Android TV and Apple TV.
