Movie extras


Recommended Posts


Using this add-on with Kodi Matri, and the Embuary skin. Not sure if this is a Next Gen add-on question or a Kodi skin question...

It's about movie extras.

With movies, the Emby Android TV app and the Emby Synology NAS app both show a nice row of movie extras, if you store your movie in its own folder and create a subfolder "extras" for your supplemental video files like making-of documentaries.

I cannot see this in Kodi, however. Is there a way to show this feature?

I know there is an Extras kodi add-on available https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=356731 but it only works using Kodi's native file mode which I am reluctant to switch my setup to, partly because that's not compatible with some Emby features.

Thanks. I've just tested this feature and it's not working for me. The context menu finds the extras okay, but will not play them. Screenshots attached.



And the Kodi log:

You can try this version https://kodi.emby.tv/Public testing/plugin.video.emby-next-gen-6.1.6-build 95 (ex9).zip

Be careful, it's an experimental version! Probably take a backup.

Just posting back to let you know the Extras feature now works for me - I'm running version 6.1.9.

Thanks for adding the feature :)
