Description (last modified by slikvik)

Decided to reset my Fire TV as I have a weird issue where Kodi 17 stops video playback randomly.

Installed v17 RC2 from scratch and discovered that I couldn't browse to any shares on my Windows 10 PC. This also meant that the Media Portal TV backend wouldn't playback as it relies on shares for the timeshift buffer.

ES Explorer could access the shares fine. I installed SPMC 16.5 and this instantly allowed me to browse the SMB shares. I uninstalled v17 and installed Javis 16.1 and that worked fine as well. From there I then installed 17 RC2 as an upgrade and it continued to work fine.

This is a serious issue that my not be picked up by many people for a while as most people will be upgrading.

I've also managed to replicate the exact same scenario on my Fire TV Stick.

EDIT: You can manually add an SMB share as a Network Location and it will work.

Just noticed same results with Ubuntu 16.04 and Kodi 17RC2. So this is also related to Linux?
