  1. I have 4 accounts on my Emby server, which runs on a separate Raspberry Pi than any of the clients. My account is the administrator and has most privileges. I have an account for my parents, my sister, and my nephew and niece that are users only, so I don't want them to change settings in the server. When I log in via Emby for Kodi, My account was able to add permanent users, but the other 3 couldn't. Clicking on Permanent Users did not display the popup for them. After playing with settings in the server, I was able to get the popup and add Permanent Users only after I enabled "Allow this u
  2. Hi guys, im fairly new to Emby and so far have had a great experience! I'm running Emby for Kodi on both of my Shield TV devices (Kodi 18.6) and everything is working brilliantly, I am just wondering if there is a way to enable the poster wall viewmode for collections in the addon? I only have the options for Square, Large Sqaure or Info Wall, I'm only asking because I prefer the collections that Emby offers compared to the Kodi Sets, as it allows the same movie to be included in multiple collections. I'm using the kodi skin Aura so can customise the home menu to make a widget to shortcut me t

Great app, much appreciated. @@Angelblue05 @@sualfred I'm still testing a lot of stuff but i found some errors in my kodi.log.

  4. Hi Guys, It took me a while to figure this out for myself and there are tons of threads stating that it's not possible, so I wanted to post this very, very easy solution to display Movie Extras within Kodi, while also using Emby for Kodi as your backend. 1. Setup your Emby library in Kodi using Direct Play (this doesn't currently work with playback via Add-On) 2. Install the following Official Kodi Add On: https://kodi.wiki/view/Add-on:Extras 3. Add a subfolder to your movie directory called Extras... IE /path/to/movies/moviename/extras 4. Locate the movie within Kodi and then, usin
  5. Hi, Not sure if this feature already exists but would appreciate any input. I wonder if there is a way I can have emby for Kodi autoplay (perhaps select highest quality) a video when there a multiple versions available? Cheers, Ryan
  6. Hi, I'd love some help please with a frustrating playback issue that suddenly emerged on my Nvidia Shield running Emby for Kodi (native/direct paths). Native/direct sync works. Kodi very briefly shows "Working..." when I press play, then goes back to the menu, all within half a second. My quick and highly uneducated look at the log file showed some errors around demuxing, but I don't know if that's significant. Recent changes to server I imagine it's relevant to point out I've recently upgraded my OS X version on my server machine, and also tinkered with its static IP address (but

    Emby for Kodi: parental control

    Hi I am wondering if there is a way to use Emby for Kodi so that the parental control feature is active but does not require the user to enter the Emby settings to change the user from child to adult? I use Kodi with Emby server as I use on multiple Rasberry Pi devices (Librelec) but also wish to enable parental controls. If this is not available then I wonder whether it could be a feature request? I was using PinSentry but this was not ideal and it no longer works ... so I am in need to a simple solution. Thanks in advance
  8. 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 us
  9. TVTunes music and video themes don't seem to be working correctly. Hitting sync theme media in the emby addon gives a success message after about 10-15 seconds, but neither video backdrops nor music themes are playing at all for movies or tv shows. My local trailers do not play either with that option enabled in TVTunes. Backdrops WILL play if I use native paths, but in order to use Cinema mode I have to use add-on paths. Play video in background is enabled. I use Arctic:Zephyr and Aura skins primarily. In the path /storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/plugin.video.emby/library/ M
  10. Hello, for some reason I have to stay with Emby for Kodi 2.3.63. Currently I'm using it with Emby Server 3.5.3 and Kodi Companion 2.0.3. I'd like upgrade to Emby Server 4.0, but I read that after the upgrade will be necessary to update also the Plugins. My question is: after the upgrade, the compatibility with Emby for Kodi 2.3.63, will be preserved ?

    Movie set issue

    Hi, I have an issue with movie sets not being syncronized from the Emby server to Kodi. I am using Emby server with Kodi companion and Auto Box Sets On Kodi side I have 3 clients: 2x Kodi 17.6 with Emby for Kodi 3.0.34 and Kodi 18.0-RC2 with Emby for Kodi 3.1.35a. On each of the clients I am missing the majority of my movie sets, means that some sets are there but most of the ones that are shown directly on the Emby server are not. I had the feeling, that sets appear after I clicked on them on the server (via browser) but that is also not always the case. On the tw
  12. Hi - not sure if this is an Emby for Kodi bug, Embuary bug, or EmbyCon bug, but I noticed something strange today while navigating my library. I have a home videos & photos library set up on my server for some downloaded youtube videos for offline playback. I use embuary on Kodi RC2, and when I navigate to the home videos library shortcut on my homescreen going through emby for kodi, when viewing the videos in the 'wide' view, all of the video thumbnails show the the xxxx-landscape.jpg for each video (which is a generic file I put into each folder for each video, and isn't a thumb of t

  14. Hi, has anyone ever had Kodi (or Emby) delete a TV episode they are currently watching? I am using the Emby for Kodi plug-in on a Windows 10 machine, with Emby Server running on a Ubuntu 16.04 box. I have only noticed this behavior when I am watching an episode that is still in the watch folder for Auto-Organize. Attached a partial debug log from when this last happened. Partial Log.txt
  15. Hi All, Small issue and annoyance with Timlord plugin, nfo’s and Kodi. TimeLord updates series data after every scan when no data has changed, season and episode dates remain unchanged.

Included server log with manually triggered task done twice. embyserver2.txt in the log you can see: TimeLord :: Rework Series Dates Emby.Kodi.SyncQueue: "LIBRARYSYNC" Updated 387 items: Emby version: TimeLordTV E

    Emby smart shortcuts missing some shows

    Hello, I have a minor problem with viewing some Emby TV libraries in Kodi, and I'm not exactly sure if this is a Emby for Kodi addon issue, a Titan skin issue, or a Skin Helper service issue. I have different TV libraries set up for the adults, (TV-Dad) and the kids (TV-Kids), and then I also have separate users for the adults and the kids. The kids only get access to TV-Kids and the adults get access to both TV-Dad and TV-Kids. I also have a folder of shows that I add to both libraries, so those shows should show up in both libraries. This works correctly in the Emby web app, Emb

    Exclusions on Import to Kodi

    Hi guys, First time posting here, just setting up my HTPC with Emby running on my server and hit a bit of a snag. I have a sub-directory I wish to exclude from Kodi specifically; Emby can continue to have the file in it's library. I figured this would be rather simple: create the exception in advancedsettings.xml, reset the local database and be done. Unfortunately, this does not seem to work. I am wondering if I am missing a step or if this a limitation/feature not yet implemented. For reference, my advancedsettings.xml is the following: <advancedsettings> <video> &

My environment: Server: Tower, i7, Windows 10, with 12GB RAM running the Emby Server Storage: 40TB Synology NAS containing: over 3,500 movies, over 2,000 TV shows, tens of thousands songs, over 100,000 images, and hundreds of home videos Users: 2 Windows 10 PC's running kodi with emby-for-kodi 2 TV's, each running fairly high-end Android boxes equipped with 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM (storage).

  19. Hello, I'm using the latest OSMC for Raspberry Pi2 with the Emby for Kodi addon and when the library is scanning it just suddenly crashes and I see the sad face screen before starting all over again. Everything was working perfect before I update OSMC. I figured it might be an issue with the update so I did a fresh install and I'm still getting the same problems. The steps I followed were to download the img from OSMC, write to micro SD using WIn32 Disk Imager, install Emby for Kodi via file manager using Beta 1.0.5, login to my Emby Server via the addon, begin library update.

  21. Hello Everyone, I have Emby server V.3.0.6300.0-1 running in my Synology. It is working perfectly in Web, iOS, and android environments. I recently installed KODI in my mac and Emby add-on for KODI. Now, KODI is able to fetch all the information from Emby server, However, if I try to play some movies, or videos it throws the error : cannot find next item to play Instead of using add-on from Emby, if I add files from my Synology smb server, it is able to play the movies. Therefore, I am assuming that there is something going wrong with KODI - Emby interface. I have attached the recent lo
  22. I don't know if it was some strange coincidence but since the latest ShieldTV 3.2 update I have had nothing but problems. Prior to that all was working quite well. Since then none of my movie files will play, but for some reason all my TV show (files) play fine... I have tried everything I could think of, or find w/google or find here, or on the the Kodi forums. I have checked my path substitutions dozens of times, I have even done the factory reset on the Shield. Nothing worked...so I installed Kodi and Emby for Kodi on my Win 10 laptop and I get the same behavior TV files plays fine but n
  23. This is a duplicate issue in another forum post, but nobody has been posting anything in that thread: http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/32876-kodi-crashes-when-playing-from-home-screen-widgets/ Basically, when trying to view a Movie or TV show from a home screen widget, such as Movies, or TV Shows, Kodi crashes immediately. However, if I go into the Movies or TV Shows menu, I can play content just fine from the Emby back end. This only seems to happen on the home screen, and it does not matter what Skin is being used. I've experienced this with Kodi 17, 16.1, and 16. Kodi 15.2 d
  24. Hi there, I'm able to use Emby for Kodi normally when I'm on my LAN, but as soon as I switch off WiFi on my phone, I can't seem to get anything to play. I should mention that I've already selected the option "Play from HTTP instead of SMB" from inside the plugin settings, and that I have port 8096 forwarded correctly on my router. I've attached the log file. The only thing I've done in the log is edited my DDNS hostname from what the no-ip hostname actually was to <hostname>.no-ip.org, for security purposes. Is there anything I'm missing here? I spent the last day trying to figure th

    Emby for Kodi won't install on Android

    Hi, Just installed Kodi on my phone (Samsung Galaxy S6, Android 5.1.1). I enable the downloaded repo (version 1.0.2), Tap "Kodi Emby Addons" and then "Video Add-ons" and "Emby", then when I tap "Install" nothing happens at all. Add-on version is 1.1.60. Any ideas? This should work, right? Hans Petter
