I'm watching videos on network mounts of a home server (
nfs - that shouldn't matter) and experience the videos to cut during reboots during maintenance because the network mounts are not served for the time of the reboot. I'd like avoid those cuts by forcing
vlc to buffer the complete video or
n minutes (don't care about the memory consumption). I naively assume that
vlc will continue buffering as soon as the network mount becomes available again if only
n minutes are buffered.
vlc 2.2.0-0-g1349ef2 on Ubuntu 15.04.
