Hello, I'd like to make a feature request for this great KODI-Plugin. (Perhaps the devs can add it to the trello-board so we can see the user acceptance?) In the classic KODI-setup you let the indexer create a database with much metadata. So you could browse your Library and lookup some meta-data (fanart, plot, trailer etc.). Which is working perfectly fine in this new promising setup with emby and the emby-kodi-plugin. BUT: if you used (classic KODI-setup) "VIDEOS->Files" to access your media-library via filesystem-structure you were able to request the metadata of a file that was previously added to the media-library via the context-menu (even you are in the file-view). So what I'd like to see in a future version is either beeing able to browse the library via filesystem-structure or better: if I add the folder of my media-library to my KODI (manually in VIDOES (no indexer)), i'd like to have the possibility to get the metadata of a file if it is in the emby-library. I know that will be not as easy as it sounds, because the emby-library is "harder seperated" from the "file-view" of KODI than its own library. But perhaps someone has an idea how to restore that (classic) feature in the new way of using KODI with a central mediaserver. Greetings jabba80 edit: first suggestion by myself: perhaps it would be a comparatively easy way to save a key-hash in the nfo file in the media-folder which links to the related emby-database entry? But would the file-view mode be able to evaluate this relation?
