Kodi buffering oplossing

Re: Buffering: The cause and solution
How to cache to External SDcard speed up video buffering, faster and smoother video streaming.

I believe I found the solutions:
a) Commoncache error if attempted to edit Advancedsettings.xml file to do path substitution to SDcard
b) Long buffering while watching movies, specially 720/1080 movies.
c) Looking for faster and smoother video streaming playback
d) cache loads faster when try to click on "date release", "new movies", "all 720 movies" etc...
e) Cache full message after buffering.
Solution:
** Make sure you buy a class 10 high speed card (30mb/sec) and FORMAT with ext4 or exFAT or FAT32.
1) Download an app called "External to Internal", launch the app and make sure the internal and external sdcard path are configured correctly
In the app settings:
Internal path - /mnt/scdard
External path - /mnt/external_sd
Put a check on "Rescan"
In the app Main menu, make sure "on boot" is checked then tab on the internal->external button. You should received a popup notification ->"swap done".
To verify, use root explorer or ES file explorer to check directory /mnt/external_sd. You should see the exact folders layout as directory /mnt/sdcard.
2) If you are using Advancedsettings.xml file, make a backup. Install xbmctalk maintenance program from Xunitytalk. After installed you should see it under PROGRAMS.
 Launch this, select xbmctalk TWEAKS, then select "Add 0 cache Advanced XML". This will create a new Advancedsettings.xml file.
Note: you can skip step 2 if you know how to config your own Advancedsettings.xml file for 0 cache limit.
3) Reboot your device and enjoy smoother, faster movie play back.

Is there an idiots step-by-step guide to do this? You need to do ALL below steps:
1) download this software https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/ install it on your PC and use it to format your SDcard with exFAT.
 Once done put your sdcard back to your device
2) Download External 2 Internal app from play store https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...codlab.
int2ext install this on your device, launch the app and make sure the internal and external sdcard path are configured correctly
In the app settings:
Internal path - /mnt/scdard
External path - /mnt/external_sd
Put a check on "Rescan"
In the app Main menu, make sure "on boot" is checked then tab on the internal->external button. You should received a popup notification ->"swap done".
3) Now you need to install xbmctalk maintenance program from Xunitytalk. After installed you should see it under PROGRAMS. Launch "xbmctalk maintenance",
 select "xbmctalk TWEAKS", then select "Add 0 cache Advanced XML". This will create a new Advancedsettings.xml file.
 Once close and exit xbmc then re launch xbmc and try to play a stream movie
