  1. Hi, I'm an Asian and I love to watch Hollywood movies but when I don't understand them most of the time, I download an audio track in my native language and play it with Hollywood and English movies simultaneously to enjoy it. I do not download dual audio movies because I find local encoders having much worse picture quality. There are my websites that provide us with audio tracks of Hollywood movies and many media player are capable of playing external audios like: VLC MPC Kodi (video and external audio file name must be same to be detected and played along) I've used Plex and found it really frustrating because it cannot perform this task, neither it has parental controls (free), so I switched to Kodi but it also has no greater features than EMBY! I installed it today and updated all my libraries, I really loved it and want to use it as my Media Server, its Combo with Kodi is really awesome, I don't like to watch movies in Web Browsers so used its Plugin for Kodi, Now everything is fine except: Emby lacking ability to play an external audio. Please please please introduce this feature. Not only for Web player but it must work with Kodi Add-on so there should be an option in Kodi to play external audio if using Emby Plugin and server in it. I shall be very very thankful too you. I really found Emby best of all but if it your team design an Emby Media Player for desktop PC, it would be really really great. Thank you.

    Playstate not updated

    After the latest update to emby, the playstate of episodes and movies are not updated in kodi. After watching a video the sync process runs, but the state of the video are not marked as watched. As far as i figured this started happening after the latest update to emby. The playstate is registred right in Emby itself, and in i run a manual sync from the kodi plugin, the state will be updated. Anyone know what could be the cause of this? Link to log: https://paste.kodi.tv/gofaqafube
  3. I'm sure like many of the users here I like to tinker, I have a wide range of both software and hardware that I use to interface with my emby. I primarily use Kodi when in-house with the emby for kodi add-on, since I use kodi primarily I use the silicondust PVR system. When I am remote at work, on mobile, my projector, vacation etc. I use emby. Since I am mobile 14+ hours of the day I configure the DVR on emby when out and via the silicondust DVR add-on within kodi when home. With that being said is it possible for emby to read the silicondust dvr files metadata and use that within the [Recordings] of emby? I have attached a sample of how emby reads the dvr files from my hdhomerun as an example. for some reason all recordings are being recognized as season of the witch. please let me know if there are any questions, files, etc that I can provide to assist with this if you feel it is something that can be added I am happy to provide. thank you, bry

    Bitrate Limit Not Working.

    Hello, I would like to set a Bitrate limit to my clients, but I can't seem to make it work! I'm testing in Kodi with the emby addon, and I set on my server a limit of 2Mb/s. When I play a movie in kodi (outside my network, so streaming, not direct playing) I press the leter "o" to get the movie information! I see that it still is a 1080p movie and that goes beyond the 2Mb/s bitrate. On the server dashboard I get the information "Direct Plying". Only when in kodi I set a lower "Video Quality" I get Transcoding in the dashboard and the correct bitrate on the video info in kodi. I would like to control this, not the clients. I would like to limit the bit rate to all clients, and if possible the video size (down to 720p). Is this possible? Thank You
  5. Hey All, Hope someone can shed some light on this issue. When using Kodi on a 32 bit system i am unable to see the plugins for Emby, Either Emby for kodi or the other EmbyCon in the repo. It shows up like there is a video addon but clicking on it, the location is empty. Not sure what to do in this case. Kodi is the latest version and i have also tried the beta repos as well. Just need to get this plugin installed. Any help would be appreciated. ******To clarify i have already installed the repos via zip and attempted to install plugins via the normal from repo method. Its here where the problems start. ********

    Embycon and movie ratings?

    After fighting with the other emby addon for a long time, which occasionally just refused to play certain videos for no reason, I was very happy to see an alternative choice in embycon. The one thing that I can't seem to figure out how to do is to show movie ratings while browsing the movies section of embycon. Tried: multiples skins (estuary, confluence, xconfluence, a few others), all settings, and multiple devices. Is this possible? Am I just an idiot and I missed a setting somewhere? I really don't care where the ratings come from. Is there a skin that does this with embycon? Can I hack this into confluence?
  7. I couldn't find this answered anywhere else, so I'll ask here. My wife just got an Amazon Echo as a gift through her work, so I'm trying to figure this out for the first time. I love Emby and have all of our media available through the Emby Server. I use Emby players when I'm away from home, but at home we use Kodi as the player, with the Emby for Kodi plugin allowing Emby to act as Kodi's media library. Is using Kodi in that way a supported player for this Emby Alexa skill? I've gotta assume probably not, since I think the Emby for Kodi plugin simply allows Emby to be used as the media library but doesn't actually replace normal Kodi functions for playback. There are a couple of beta efforts for controlling Kodi via Alexa skill, but they don't seem to be as mature/complete as this solution is. If I can't use Kodi as a player though for the Emby Alexa skill, I'll look into those next. Thank you!

    Library disappearing Emby for Kodi

    Hi there, SInce a few weeks I have an issue in Kodi using Emby for Kodi. Indeed, my librairies in Kodi, which are exclusively built from Emby for Kodi, sometimes simply disappear and it shows empty librairies in Kodi. This issue is totally random, as it might work perfectly for a few days, and then one day my librairies will be empty. A few things to be noticed : - It seems to me that when turning on my TV and Kodi, my librairies are always showing as expected. The librairies disappearance always seems to occur when using Kodi for at least a few minutes (either by playing a video file or navigating in Kodi menus). - Librairies are still there and well on my Emby server, and I can access them perfectly fine in a web browser from another machine. - The only way for the librairies to appear again in Kodi is to hard turn off my TV (by pressing the turn off button, then unplug the TV, replug it and turning it back on). My TV is 2015 Sony Bravia with Android TV. - When Emby updates the librairies in Kodi, I have noticed that updating now takes about 2 minutes instead of about 20 seconds a few weeks ago. - Evrything else which is network/internet related works just fine in my TV. Last thing : I do not fully understand the difference between Emby for Kodi and EmbyCon. Could someone explain it to me, as EmbyCon could be an alternative solution if I cannot resolve my issue with Emby for Kodi (I would prefer to resolve my issue though) ? Thank you a lot in advance,

    Kodi keep LAN address

    Hi, I have little problem with my Emby plugin for Kodi. The plugin works very well but when I start Kodi I must each time rewrite the address of my Emby server because Kodi put my LAN address server. I put my log on this thread. In the log you can see that the connection with LAN address not working and after I change this address for the real server address and it's working. Thanks ! Thibaut P.S : I change my real server address with http://MYSERVERADDRESS

    Kodi <> Emby, 2 Raspberry

    moin nach langer zeit hab ich mich wieder mit Emby befast. diesmal der raspberry als server. Ich habe 2 RPi auf einen läuft der Emby server auf den anderen Kodi nach langer zeit hab ich alles so hinbekommen wie ich es mir vorgestellt habe. meine 2 Fragen sind kann ich kodi und emby server auf einen RPi laufen lassen, wenn ja wie? die andere frage ist kann ich mit emby auch auf externe platten zugreifen, also die nicht diereckt mit dem RPi wo der emby drauf ist verbunden ist, aber im gleichen netzerk ist platte ist an der Fritzbox angeschlossen ich weiss das ich die platte auch an der RPi anschliessen kann, aber was ich nicht möchte und auch da wenn ja wie? danke in vorraus wenn mir jemand die fragen beatworten kann doedeldie 'Ps: da ja alles bei mir geht, sind es eigendlich nur wissens fragen
  15. If you use "Native (Direct Paths)" in the Emby for Kodi add-on and the library's "Shared network folder" on the Ember server side has erroneous slashes in it, the add-on silently doesn't add the "smb://" prefix leading to unhelpful errors that don't help lead the user to fixing their error. I wonder if it might be possible to either validate the "Shared network folder" setting warning for duplicate slashes or mixed forward and backward slashes on the Emby server side and/or make the logic for when to prepend "smb://" less picky on the Kodi add-on side, such as just doing it for every path that starts with "\\". In my case, I mistakenly entered a single forward slash later in the "Shared network folder" windows network path, e.g.: "\\server\share\foo/bar". Without anything pointing out the mix of slashes, it took me forever to finally notice them after many failed debugging sessions, especially since cutting and pasting the paths into Windows Explorer worked just fine. In another user's case, they mistakenly entered a trailing back slash in the "Shared network folder" resulting in a double back slash for the full path: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/47453-invalid-smb-paths/&do=findComment&comment=448373 Emby Server Kodi 17.6 Emby for Kodi add-on 3.0.11a I apologize for the lack of a debug log file. All previous instances of the error messages have already been overwritten since I fixed the "Shared network folder" and done a "Repair local database (force update all content)" and my libraries are too large to do that twice as I'd have to do to reproduce the issue.
  16. I have been using Emby and kodi for quite a while, but i cannot understand what i have done so that only a small portion of my tv show appear into kodi (but they are all there in the emby web interface, and also i can send them to kodi via the web inteface.) here is the emby log https://www.dropbox.com/s/993y2qytq3ogx50/server-63652059363.txt?dl=0 What i dont understand is that all my movie are at both place (kodi and emby web client) but not the tv show Hope that give you all the information to help me ! edit: Emby Version

    Emby Crashing on Vero 4K

    Im using Vero 4k on the latest release, after some troubleshooting via the OSMC forums it was suggested it is not a Vero 4K problem but probably the Emby Add on for Kodi. When syncing my movies and tv shows it will crash multiple times which will cause the sad face crash. Eventually it does this a few times and it seems to import everything. However, all TV shows and movies crash on playback after a few seconds. Ive deselected force Artwork Caching and limited the download threads to 1, but still the error persists. logs are attached. Kodilog.txt
  18. Hi, I currently use the Emby for Kodi plugin to stream my media to a FireTV box remotely. I am thinking of purchasing an external hard drive to plug into the AFTV for local playback. Will adding media from the hard drive directly to Kodi library cause any issues with the imported library from my Emby server or can they co-exist without any issues? Thanks for any info anyone can provide before I invest in a hard drive.
  19. Hello, I'm having an issue with the Trakt plugin when using external players with Kodi. I have the latest version of the Trakt Emby Plugin (3.0.6369.28749) and the latest Emby beta version ( I got back from a trip a week ago and noticed that the Trakt plugin was no longer updating the watched status of any episode or movie watched through an external player on Kodi. It updates just fine when no external player is used (watched directly through Kodi), but when an external play is used (such as VLC or Media Player Classic), the watched status is not updated even when completed. I believe this is somewhat related to a previous issue I had posted (which got no response), as when I mark something as watched (in either Kodi or the Emby web client itself), Trakt is not updated. Previously, if I had simply marked something as watched (regardless of whether or not I had actually watched it), it would be updated on Trakt immediately. As stated in the previous thread I made, I had to mark every episode watched through an external player as "watched" manually in Kodi, triggering a Trakt update. I still do that, but this time there's no Trakt update. I'm still able to import watched statuses and sync collection data though. I noticed these lines in the log after watching an episode through an external player: 2017-06-24 17:48:22.7894 Info SessionManager: Playback stopped reported by app Kodi 2.3.48 playing Snooze... A Trip to Yuka`s Dream!. Stopped at 1000 ms 2017-06-24 17:48:22.7894 Info Trakt: Playback Stopped 2017-06-24 17:48:22.7894 Info Trakt: Item Not fully played. Tell trakt.tv we are no longer watching but don't scrobble I think the issue is from Kodi reporting that the video had stopped at 1000 ms, when it had actually played the entire file, just through an external player (VLC in this case). As such, Trakt wouldn't update.
  20. I've seen this bug twice now using two different Kodi instances on the same emby library. For some reason, some series will be missing from Kodi until a refresh is done on Emby for the missing series. Once that is done, and Kodi receives the update, the missing series is merged with another series, with the title being replaced with the missing series's title, but the episode titles staying the same. An example of it happening: https://imgur.com/a/bpAGY This mostly happens with series using metadata from the Anime plugin, where, for example, TVDb lists it as a single series with multiple seasons, whereas AniDB etc. list it as multiple series. From inspecting the DB, it would seem like the plugin is assigning the same kodi_id to multiple items: https://imgur.com/a/ZLGzW I can upload emby.db and MyVideos60.db if that would be also useful for debugging the issue. I have multiple series with the same problem. Again, normally where the items are in the same series in TVDb, but not in aniDB. This is the log file from kodi, split to show before and after the Emby metadata refresh: https://gist.github.com/Mitame/013c2caba7c4f19d1f595a1fa5b1dcb1 Thanks, - Mitame
  21. I am using an external player with Kodi. Once the user finishes watching and clicks on Kodi's dialog "Click 'Ok' when playback has ended", the particular video is marked as watched for a second. After which "Comparing Database" pop-up comes on the top-right corner and the video is again marked as unwatched. This happens even if the video is manually marked as watched after exiting the external player. However, this does not happen when using the built-in Kodi player.
  22. Everything used to work until today. I am using Emby .NET Core version. As i can see on Emby webpage (8096) there's all my music about 1200 tracks. Problems started occuring when I added folder with Audiobook then in my Kodi Music tab was only 15 songs (audiobook track). I removed audiobook and my library doesnt return even after Refresh Emby playlist/Video nodes Perform manual sync Repair local database (force update all content) Perform local database reset & all above Now theres only 53 song files... I have checked Kodi logs and theres huge file with syncing all files Some info on beggining Ending of file

    Multiversion crash emby

    Hi, I have added couple of video version to test multiversion with diffrent bitrate. Emby recognize video files and added them in one position with diffrent bitrate - so far good. After I change connection speed to lower value in the kodi, video stop working. In the server logs I found the following error: https://pastebin.com/y4Y83wwN
  24. I'm having the hardest time trying to fix something here and I can't figure out why. I have several Nvidia ShieldTV units at home and I've installed them all the same: Install Kodi Add the Kodi Emby Beta Repo from http://kodi.emby.media Install Emby Install and Enable the Titan for Krypton skin For some reason the Titan for Krypton Skin just blanks out my home screen in Kodi. I don't even need Emby installed for this to happen. All of my other ShieldTV's work but for some reason on this new one I cannot enable it. Has anyone else had this problem, or gotten it to work, that has done an install lately? Thanks, Josh
  25. Hello experts, I'm a KODI user, with Emby for KODI addon installed (LibreELEC / KODI 17). I have an external usb disk, which isn't always plugged, plus it's on a remote computer (another room). If this usb disk is plugged on the remote computer, a script mounts it in LibreELEC as a network cifs share (if unplugged, it's unmounted). But, it seems Emby doesn't detect the changes : - it doesn't appear automatically in library sources if i try to add a new folder (seems normal). - if i try to restart Emby (i did a "systemctl restart service.emby.service"), I notice Emby restarts itself, then i see the mountpoint's path created, but without any subfolders from the share. Folders are accessible in LibreELEC after the mount. How can Emby detect changes in mount points ? Thanks for your assistance. Regards,
