Offline cache questions

In which situations are files preferably played from the offline cache?

  1. When playing locally, even when the media provider is online?

  2. When playing via UPnP to a different target, even when the source media provider is available?

  3. When playing to a Kodi UPnP target, even when the source is the same Kodi instance?

Just curious. This obviously has impact on the device battery, but who would think that you did not think about that :grinning:

Locally always, when casting when provider not online.

For Kodi thereโ€™s direct renderer without UPnP so no password issue and no battery due to proxy.
