Kodi is a great media center period. Just alone without 3rd party add ons its a very powerful piece of software. But having large HD files streaming from sources or in your local network can sometimes buffer. There are some options people use such as preconfigured advance settings. Everyone in the community has some work around etc. For my self and others we’ve had major success with these settings. Check out the video below from a YouTube user. We have tested this on the Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Minix Z64, Raspberry Pi, and other Android set top boxes. It is pretty much trial and error. Keep in mind buffering occurs from either a bad link, slow internet speeds, bandwidth load on the links provider, etc. Try it out and see what works for your device and adjust accordingly. Keep in mind on how much RAM your device has and adjust from there.

Start with these settings and if it works then thats great. The example below goes as is.
1Gb of ram Amazon Fire TV Stick/Ouya, and any other Android box that has 1gb of RAM

For every 1gb of RAM you multiply by 209715200

cache-209715200 read-4.0 buffer-1


209715200=20mb so that gets multiplied by three.



So 2gb of RAM on a device such as Amazon Fire TV would be cache-419430400 read-4.0 buffer-1 that means 419430400 =40mb *3=120mb adjust accordingly to your connection. These have worked well for me. I live in CA, USA and have a 50mb down internet connection. So this is just a formula to work off of.



  1. Seems to have fixed some of the buffering but there are still some buffering issues even on some things that are in a MQ. just wondering if there was anything I can do for that. I followed the video exactly and clear cache regularly. Thanks in advance

  2. I would try this out for your M8 device cache-419430400 read-4.0 buffer-1. Give that a shot and see how that works out. That seems to be the “magic number” for 2gb boxes. Do that clear your cache etc with the Raw Maintenance tool. A tutorial will go up later on today for that.

  38. Hiya! Cool weblog! I am a daily visitor to your site (far like addict ) of this website although I had a issue. I’m just far from being absoluetly certain whether it is the right place to ask, but you have no spam comments. I receive comments constantly. Are able to you assist me? Appreciate it!

  39. This is misleading as there no additional changes which would improve background loading of the stream…nor is the calcation as per the kodi wiki


  40. I find easy advanced settings, but it will not allow me to install. I click the install it says downloading then it just goes blank. Any ideas?

  41. Can anyone tell me how to fix this error? I installed on my device M8s the new kodi isengard and i change also 0 cache setting from maintenance tool i tried this settings but doesn’t work for me i have the android box M8s with 2gb of ram and 8mbs internet connection.

  42. Has anyone found a good settings for Fire TV (the box, not the Fire TV stick)? I have tried lots of combinations mentioned here and elsewhere and still have buffering issues. My download speed is very good (88mpbs) so I don’t think that’s the culprit. Would love to find the right combination of settings!

    • I stopped using advanced settings to be honest. Everything seems to work great. Only changes I really made were flushing my internet and I changed my network DNS. I use Google DNS to help traffic etc. In reality it is a number of factors, links, add ons, etc. Try different things and see what works for you. Even do a fresh start to see if any old files my be causing issues.

  43. Exceptional post however , I was wondering if you could write a litfe more on this post! I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Kudos!

  44. please can you help I’ve tried a few settings but I’m still getting buffering I have a fire box. and I done a speed test which reads 50mb is there a recommended setting many thanks
