I keep getting the following error message in the FPP.log:  This error doesn't occur at the same place in a playlist and it takes over an hour to develop.  The files that do fail have all played before during my testing
mediaoutput/omxplayer.cpp:247:Error parsing omxplayer output.  COMXAudio::Decode timeout

I've tried several things such as reloading the video files, getting the latest updates, changing the resolution of the video files, limiting the playlist to 4 files.  Nothing seems to help or solve the issue.

Our there others who have the same issue? If you have a set of test files that works for you, I'd like to get a copy and try it on my 3+.

I think most have the same issue  Last season I would have to reboot my player once a night. Knowing that I would do it at the start of my show and I would get through the night most of the time.
