  1. Howdy people! Using Kodi on an Android TV, Emby serving stuff from a docker container runing on an Unraid server. Kodi ver. 18.0, Emby server, Emby for Kodi 4.0.5.; manual login on server (no passwords, only usernames), no EmbyCon. Ever since Kodi got updated to 18.0, I'm unable to add user(s) to session in Emby for Kodi menu. When I select the option, most of the time nothing happens, rarely a "spining circle" appears for a second or two but nothing after. If I restart Emby for Kodi (from the same menu) after selecting the "add user..." option - the window for selecting the user to add appears just as the "restart option" is selected, but no users appear listed there. The user selection from Kodi login appears to work fine (the watched/started etc shows/movies are set correctly for each user) but the addition doesn't work. Haven't seen anyone complaining about that, so it's either a rarely used function or I'm the only one who uses it and has problems with it. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Kodi Companion and shared libraries

    I've now got Emby set up and working with Kodi, but now I need to introduce extra Kodi profiles. In the past I've used shared libraries for some Kodi accounts and I'm wondering how I should deal with this? Will Kodi Companion sync properly with two profiles sharing a library and syncing with Emby? Or would I bet better off putting up with the extra overhead and add one Emby user for each Kodi profile even though this will just mean duplicating data?

    Kodi Companion does not stay enabled

    Good afternoon, I have been having issues with emby since Version 4 by the looks of it. I have had the same issue on Kodi 17.6 - 18 RC - 18 Stable with Emby for Kodi. When I first install Emby for Kodi, it goes through the prompts, I connect to my server, enable artwork caching, whole tomatoes, etc. I sync my TV and Movies. When I check my Emby settings, they look correct, Companion is enabled, artwork caching is enabled, I hit OK and close out. When I open up Kodi again, I get prompted to enable artwork caching and to turn on Companion. This happens EVERYTIME, and these settings get disabled again after I restart Kodi (or they never get enabled). Any help would be appreciated. This has happened exactly the same way on 4 separate systems, 3 of which were fresh installs. kodi.log

    Emby For Kodi

    My Emby server was upgraded to 4.0 and it has messed up Kodi. TV shows have disappeared from Kodi. Every time I start Kodi, an Emby for Kodi sign in screen appears. Movies I added last year are appearing under recently added movies. How do I fix this?
  5. I know the kodi plugin is getting worked on so please add this to the list: Kodi Emby plugin asks for password every time it starts after updating to I can't be hand holding family every time kodi boots. Environments: Server (on windows) Version Server Plugin Kodi Companion Emby for Kodi plugin 3.0.34 Kodi (on windows) 17.6 "Krypton" Also acts the same way on OpenELEC and is also new behavior post

    New Emby for Kodi (beta) missing views

    Hello, I updated my Emby for Kodi Addon using the beta repository, as instructed in another thread here. I notice that special views for libraries set as “TV show” type have disappeared. I am talking about Next Episode, In progress shows, In progress episodes, ...etc. Is there any way to get these back? If this is a change rather than a bug, is it permanent? The ones for movie type libraries still exist.
  7. After upgrade to Emby & Kodi 18RC52, self-made EMBY video & photo libraries are not showing up under Kodi v18RC52 'Video' but 'Pictures'. In earlier versions of Kodi/Emby, this showed up under 'video' as Emby Libraries and could be navigated as thus. Versions: - Emby v4.1.0.1 - Companion: v2.0.9.0 - Emby for Kodi v3.1.44a - Kodi 18RC52 with the default skin Estuary Question: how can I fix this in Kodi without having to change anything in Emby, or has this to do with the Emby for Kodi 3.1.44a development/bugs, I prefer that these libraries are available again in the main menu or within de menu item: Emby: how should I do that? Thanks & best regards, Peter
  8. Hi guys, I've got a problem. My server (Synology) auto updated to and my Kodi clients stopped to work. In this forum i saw that the stable 3.0.34 is not working with this server version so i updated to beta 3.1.44a, now Emby works fine again. Server: (Synology) Client: 3.1.44a (Emby for Kodi) Problem: IPTV Simple Client is not working anymore. Streams sometimes don't start and if they do, after reboot, they run about 3-10 minutes before the whole system freezes. Only power switch helps to restart. First steps: I could reproduce the fail, if i deactivate emby addon, the stream instantly start to work again. Test this for about 2 hours, no fail, no freeze. 01:36:32.160 T:1180685216 NOTICE: CVideoPlayerAudio::Process - stream stalled that's the last log i get before freezing/rebooting if i tail -f the .kodi/temp/kodi.log Please help, i switched my whole entertainment system to emby since i read about it in christmas holidays and it would be very nice when i can use it again. Thanks in advance! Greetz pand0ra kodi.old.log

    Kodi - Emby Server Access Issues

    Gents, I have installed Kodi, Emby for Kodi and Embuary skin. I am getting a connection error 10061. Seems to be that Kodi is not connecting to the Emby server. I think that Emby server is crashing and it is okay when I first boot up and access the configuration page, but as soon as I start-up Kodi or even Emby Theater, it loses the connection. Running the latest Windows 10. Attached logs. Have not got to creating a Kodi log yet. I di enable debugging but it did not crete a log in roaming.
  10. Hey guys, I am a Kodi/XBMC long time user. I really have enjoyed using Media Browser for greater control over my metadata and artwork. I also use it for our chromebooks and accessing our media outside of our home network. This may not be new news to this forum but I posted a noob guide here including configuring your router for external access. http://gameroomsolutions.com/organize-access-home-theater-media-anywhere-media-browser/ Thanks, Ryan GameRoomSolutions.com
  11. Hello, For a while now (I believe with the beta addon - currently 3.1.31a) I can't control Kodi remotely from the Android app. It just never shows in the "play on" dropdown. I can see the devices in Emby dashboard, but not in the Android app. Anything more I can add?
  12. I'd really love some information on TV files on Emby Server and how I can edit the metadata. I am able to create nfo files using Emby for movies and then I am building a program to edit them simply and usefully. But I can't seem to find anywhere that nfo files are created for TV Shows. Does it happen? How does Kodi get the tag or genre information for them? And is there a way to get Kodi to notice that I have added more shows. If I go into them one at a time on my phone it notices them, one at a time. They have been there for 24 hours, it is never going to notice them unless I go to each show individually. Surely there must be something I can do on Emby Server to mark them as new? I am sorry, I hate posting in a forum and I really have searched for information. Emby for Kodi is very poorly documented. Sam.
  13. First off...as I have said before I believe...I LOVE this add on! I have Kodi Krypton and the newest release of Emby as well as current version of the Emby for Kodi add-on. Local trailers are in the movie folder alongside the movie with the -trailer added like so: Movie Name (2018).mkv Movie Name (2018)-trailer.mov Trailers play fine from the web app In Kodi (running the Titan Skin), when I go to "Information" for a movie and click on "Trailer". I get a pop up that says "Add-on required - To use this feature you must download an add-on: YouTube" and asks if I want to download it. If I don't (which I don't want to use YouTube trailers) then it just takes me back to the Information screen. If I do download it, then it runs the trailer from YouTube (which I don't want). To be honest, I don't watch trailers on this box, so I can't tell you if it ever worked...but it works perfectly from the Emby Web App (and I have trailers for all my movies). Any idea how to fix this? Thanks.

    Do I need a VPN

    Hi I have a collection of movies on my hard drive and i am running the Emby add on inside Kodi on my Windows PC to catalog and stream them to my other devices throughout the house. I am not using any internet streaming services like IPTV or anything like that. I am just wondering if i need to be running a VPN or not. I have a Private internet Access subscription but I don't have it running 24/7. Should I have?
  15. Hi all, I've been using emby for a few years now and have hit my first problem ! Hoping someone may be able to help. Long story short, following a clean reboot the system will idle at around 5% cpu usage then gradually increase until both cpu cores hit 50% and remain at that level. This only occurs when the emby for kodi plugin is enabled. If I disable and use Embycon instead, the system is at the usual 5%, Setup : LibreELEC - 8.2.5 Emby Server - (now within a docker container) Kodi Companion - Emby Addon Beta - 3.1.32a (also tried stable) Skin - Arctic Zephyr The issue presented itself a month or so ago, with no changes to the system other than plugin updates. I also have another box on the network with same specs & versions (less emby server), same skin which connects to the main emby server however I do not have the issue on that machine. Debug logging doesn't show much other than the following every second. Unknown if it would drive up the CPU usage : 23:11:15.601 T:140286952945408 NOTICE: EMBY.helper.utils -> DEBUG:: ---[ event: plugin.video.emby/ReportProgressRequested ] "[{\"Report\": true}]" 23:11:16.589 T:140286952945408 NOTICE: EMBY.monitor -> DEBUG:: [ plugin.video.emby: ReportProgressRequested ] { "Report": true } 23:11:28.152 T:140286952945408 NOTICE: EMBY.helper.utils -> DEBUG:: ---[ event: plugin.video.emby/ReportProgressRequested ] "[{\"Report\": false}]" 23:11:29.469 T:140286952945408 NOTICE: EMBY.monitor -> DEBUG:: [ plugin.video.emby: ReportProgressRequested ] { "Report": false } 23:11:31.200 T:140286952945408 NOTICE: EMBY.helper.utils -> DEBUG:: ---[ event: plugin.video.emby/ReportProgressRequested ] "[{\"Report\": false}]" 23:11:32.128 T:140286952945408 NOTICE: EMBY.monitor -> DEBUG:: [ plugin.video.emby: ReportProgressRequested ] { "Report": false } 23:11:33.808 T:140286952945408 NOTICE: EMBY.helper.utils -> DEBUG:: ---[ event: plugin.video.emby/ReportProgressRequested ] "[{\"Report\": false}]" 23:11:34.655 T:140286952945408 NOTICE: EMBY.monitor -> DEBUG:: [ plugin.video.emby: ReportProgressRequested ] { "Report": false } 23:11:36.197 T:140286952945408 NOTICE: EMBY.helper.utils -> DEBUG:: ---[ event: plugin.video.emby/ReportProgressRequested ] "[{\"Report\": false}]" 23:11:37.283 T:140286952945408 NOTICE: EMBY.monitor -> DEBUG:: [ plugin.video.emby: ReportProgressRequested ] { "Report": false } Could anyone please shed any light ? I'm at a loss and could really do with the plugin working as Embycon doesn't support photos and music videos currently. Thanks in advance for any help ! Neil
  16. Hello, I picked up a new Android Box and set up Kodi and am trying to Emby for Kodi sync add-on and while it syncs the server will turn off. Kodi is a fresh install, I added the Sync via the repository. Then i allowed it to sync all of my media, it adds my movies and TV and crash some where between my TV shows and my Music. I have had to turn on my server 4 times tonight, and with kodi trying to sync it will crash in 20 minutes. embyserver.txt embyserver-63676182309.txt embyserver-63676182777.txt
  17. Hey, this started happening maybe a week ago for me, am testing the beta version of the plugin (currently 3.1.31a).

  18. Hi, I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction here. I currently have 5 ShieldTV's hooked up on various TV's around the house. They're all logged in as the same user profile in Emby and all running Kodi 17.6 and the Titan Skin. Since Version 3.1.08a, or so it seems, I've been having an issue where the menu shortcuts on different Shields will disable and rearrange themselves to be different than what I have set. All of the TV's are different in what shortcuts they show. i.e. in my Kids room it does not show the adult TV and Movies but it does show Kids TV and Kids Movies. In the Family Room it shows everything, etc. I was under the impression, and maybe I'm wrong, that the individual configurations for menu shortcuts and such were self contained in each install of Kodi rather than being synced back to the Emby server. Is that correct or am I just wrong? It got so bad that I deleted Kodi on each Shield and reinstalled and re-setup Kodi/Emby on each one. The problem came back. I've also noticed that I'm still seeing that bug where it slows down after a while as well but I figured I'd tackle one problem at a time. I can post logs but I wasn't sure if logs would help with the menu shortcuts. Just let me know. Thanks for the help
  19. Emby Server on QNAP (x64) Kodi 17.6 on Windows 7 x64 Pro -Logs can be provided if needed- I have two users setup on Emby and matching profiles in Kodi. The Kodi plugin is installed on the server. Issue: Anytime Kodi switches profiles (user1 to user2 -or- user2 to user1) the message of Emby Authentication Failed is displayed, and the user is prompted to type in the password again. Example: User1 uses the User1 profile in Kodi, prompted to authenticate. Once authenticated, sync happens and no issues. If User1 closes and reopens Kodi, sync happens. No authentication prompt, and everything works as expected. User1 Kodi profile continues to function perfectly as expected, no matter how many times Kodi is reopened, until... User2 loads User2 profile. User2 is prompted to authenticate. Like User1, everything works as expected from then on. If User2 continues to reopen Kodi, no issues just like User1. If User1 opens Kodi (after User2), the whole process starts over with authentication. If User2 opens Kodi (after User1), again, the whole process starts over with authentication. All media is displayed properly, and all sync's occur properly, the issue is the re-authentication if you were not the last person using the system. It is like Kodi is only saving one password, the last password entered, and trying to use it for every user. Additional Details: This started around July 29th, I believe that is when I upgraded Emby to the current version ( It was using the direct previous version before it. I keep my system current. This occurs on 4 different computers with existing Kodi installations. I've clean installed a fresh Kodi setup, with Emby Add-on only, still occurs. I've reinstalled Emby server over itself, still occurs. I've delete and recreated the user accounts on the Emby Server itself, still occurs. I'm about to remove Emby Server entirely from the QNAP, and clean install it on the server. Since the media scan will take forever on my large collection, I thought I would ask for assistance first. I’m a lifetime Emby Premiere user and have been enjoying the work that has been done on the project for several years. Thank you for the project and any assistance that can be provided.
  20. Hello Guys! I need a help! I work on a kodi plugin project, the PseudoTV Addon. This project basically uses your library to make a fake cable tv. I need to solve a problem, all things played by my addon, change the watched status on Emby and kodi, but the correct way is to make the Emby ignore all things played in addon, like it is never watched. How I can make this? I can call some emby function in python script of my addon or kodi has a function to make this? I am using native path via SMB on kodi. thanks for help!
  21. Hi, I'm having some problems to maintain sync between Kodi and Emby in my RPI3 (OSMC distribution) with Emby for Kodi plugin. I'm using Samba, so I could use "localhost" or "osmc" as a host, as both Emby and Kodi are running in the same machine, but for some reason it resets the host to an 192.168.1.x IP (not necessarily the current one) everytime I restart the server. That's happening with both "emby connect" and "manual" options. I've found something similar in these posts: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/57270-emby-for-kodi-doesnt-find-my-server-after-kodi-restart/ https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/57243-kodi-keep-lan-address/ But I don't know where should I configure the host that Emby is sending to the plugin. In the dashboard is showing the internal IP address, but it has been always the same when using Raspbian or Retropie, and host settings were never lost. My environment: Hardware: Rapsberry PI 3, model B (UK Version) OS: OSMC 2018.08-2 Kodi: 17.6 Emby: Emby for Kodi: 3.0.34 I don't know if I'm missing any configuration option in OSMC. I've read about option "cleanonupdate" that should be turned off in the advancedsettings.xml, but in fact this option doesn't exist in the (quite brief) advancedsettings.xml from OSMC. My last try was: Searching files with the IP address shown in the configuration. Found "data.txt" and "settings.xml" in /home/osmc/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/plugin.video.emby. Edited those files, replacing the IP by localhost, and save the changes. Set readonly permissions for these files (sudo chmod 0444) so they could be read, but couldn't be modified anymore. After restarting the server it's showing the host http://localhost:8096 in the configuration (what should really be) but a pop-up message appears with an emby error.
  22. Hope someone is able to help out on this one I might have missed some important information about changes to the config. since i am not able to find anywhere to add the user credentials for use with Direct Path in Kodi. My Embycon does still have the feature. and i could see if i assign the share everybody or guest permission everything works fine. I have tried to read the first 4 pages in the community and look through wikis and installations guides, that all point to the old 1.03 version that have credentials in the config. Do any know if this is caused by its still in Beta?

    Emby for Kodi translations

    Going through this topic, I discovered that a Transifex project page had been setup to translate Emby for Kody. I added a first version of the French translation, but maybe not everyone knows about this translation project. I hope Angelblue05 will agree on advertizing this translation project: https://www.transifex.com/emby-for-kodi/emby-for-kodi/dashboard/ Also Angelblue05, I cannot find a proper forum topic to thank you for your work, so here it is: many thanks mate, and grats on your work around Emby & Kody. ;-) -j
