How to Increase Cache on Kodi for Better Performance

by Vaibhav Sharda

Kodi is a popular open source media player that can be installed on many devices including PC, Mac, Raspberry Pi, Android, iOS and even on the popular XBMC media center. Kodi can be used for watching live TV and videos, playing music, listening to radio, and playing a variety of other media formats. Kodi is available in many different skins, or user interface styles, which can make it difficult to get Kodi up and running. In this article, we will show you how to increase your cache on Kodi so it runs faster.

The cache is a space in RAM to temporarily store data. When a computer starts up, it needs much longer than the memory it has on board to load and initialize all the programs. For this reason, the operating system puts the programs in a cache and enables them to start without accessing the hard drive.

In this article, we will see how to increase the cache in Kodi to improve performance. First we need to know what a cache is. A cache is a hardware or software portion of a system that provides a fast access zone for main memory or a reserved zone of a memory device. There are two types of cache: Memory cache and hard drive cache. When the cache accumulates, Kodi users have problems watching videos or suffer from buffering issues. These issues can be solved by increasing the cache to improve Kodi’s performance.

Why do I need to increase the cache in Kodi?

If you are using Kodi on a highly configured device with more memory, you do not need to increase or clear the cache. However, if you are using Kodi on a low configuration device, you should clear or increase your device’s cache to improve performance. When you stream videos on Kodi, all Kodi data is downloaded and stored in memory, which affects Kodi’s performance. If you follow the above steps carefully, you will not have such problems again.{“@context”:”https://schema.org”,”@type”:”FAQPage”,”mainEntity”:[{“@type”:”Question”,”name”:”How do I increase cache on Kodi?”,”acceptedAnswer”:{“@type”:”Answer”,”text”:” To increase cache on Kodi, go to Settings -> System -> Cache Management -> Cache Size and change the cache size to a larger value.”}},{“@type”:”Question”,”name”:”How do I fix Kodi so slow?”,”acceptedAnswer”:{“@type”:”Answer”,”text”:” Some of the reasons why Kodi might be slow include: Low Storage Space Too many addons Too many videos Too many streams Too much data Too many connections Too many plugins Too many scrapers Too many libraries Too many cache files Too many temp files Too many logs Too many processes Too many cores Too many addons Too many videos Too many streams Too much data Too many connections Too many plugins Too many scrapers Too many libraries Too many cache files Too many temp files Too many logs Too many processes Too many cores Too many addons Too many videos Too many streams Too much data Too many connections Too many plugins Too many scrapers Too many libraries Too many cache files Too many temp files Too many logs Too many processes Too many cores Too many addons Too many videos Too many streams Too much data Too many connections Too many plugins Too many scrapers Too many libraries Too many cache files Too many temp files Too many logs Too many processes Too many cores Too many addons Too many videos Too many streams Too much data Too many connections Too many plugins Too many scrapers Too many libraries Too many cache files Too many temp files Too many logs Too many processes Too many cores Too many addons Too many videos Too many streams Too much data Too many connections Too many plugins Too many scrapers Too many libraries Too many cache files Too many temp files Too many logs Too many processes Too many cores Too many addons Too many videos Too many streams”}},{“@type”:”Question”,”name”:”How do I change the buffering settings on Kodi?”,”acceptedAnswer”:{“@type”:”Answer”,”text”:” The best way to change the buffering settings on Kodi is to use the “Advanced Settings” option in the main menu.
