Version 1.1.68

 

Fix:

  • Add option to limit items requested at once from server under the sync option tab in the add-on settings (by default it is set to 200). You can lower the number by 50, as necessary, if your server connection times out during the initial sync process.
  • Fix artwork cache not working - If you are experiencing difficulties with fanart not changing in the movie library, you can temporarily disable extra fanart in the skin setting. This should allow static fanart to work until the issue is resolved.
  • Fix dialog crash
  • Fix h265 transcode option

Version 1.1.76

 

Newly added/changed are home videos and photo library. They are both dynamic plugin entries. You can access them by launching the emby add-on. You can also create home shortcuts by pointing the action to Add-ons > Video add-ons > emby > Choose the dynamic plugin entry.

 

New:

  • Add music rating system
  • Changed home videos approach to a dynamic plugin entry (requires a reset to remove existing home videos entries from the kodi database first).
  • Add photo library as a dynamic plugin entry
  • Add/Fix force transcode setting for 720p-1080p/HEVC-H265 formats
Fix:
  • Fix to incremental sync, caused by the server restarting (this fixes newly added content not appearing, watch status not syncing)
  • Fix for image caching during the initial sync on rpi devices. If you had this issue, you can find the option in the add-on settings > sync options > Limit image cache import threads (You can start with 25 threads and lower as needed)
  • Fix to audio/subtitles tracks (requires a repair, or reset)

Version 1.1.78

 

This is mostly an update to fix bugs that crept up in the past build. Post your Kodi log if you continue to experience issues following this update. Thanks everyone!

How to report a problem: http://emby.media/co...port-a-problem/

 

New:

  • Display gathering progression during the initial sync

Fix:

  • Fix progress dialog not displaying for other add-ons
  • Fix initial sync being stuck

As a reminder, if your initial sync crashes, go to the sync option tab in the add-on settings and you can adjust the item retrieved at once option (by default it is set to 200). You can lower the number by 50, as necessary and restart Kodi to relaunch the initial sync.

 

**We are aware the newly added music rating is creating a long incremental sync after the initial sync has completed. This is being looked into.

Version 1.1.79

 

Further improvements to the music tags import, based on the feedback in the various forum discussions

 

optional settings added:

 

- import music song rating directly from files (default ON) --> this will scrape the song rating from your music files ID3 tags into the Kodi library. It will add some overhead to the initial scan (it takes longer to process the music files) but you will have your ratings visible within the kodi music library.

 

- convert music song rating to emby (likes/favourites) --> when you enable this setting (it's off by default now), the ratings from your music will be converted to emby ratings (=like, dislike,favourite). Also the other way around, if you change the rating in emby (e.g. like a song), this will be updated into Kodi.

The following conversion will apply:

rating 0 = emby dislike

rating 1,2 = emby neutral (no like, favourite or dislike)

rating 3,4 = emby like

rating 5 = emby favourite

 

- allow rating in song files to be updated by kodi/emby --> when you enable this setting (it's off by default now), any changes you make to the rating of a song will be written to the song file itself. Warning! It's recommended that you enable this setting only on one of your kodi boxes to prevent multiple instances trying to write the same change to the file.

Version 1.1.80

 

New:

  • Add refresh for video nodes. Launch the emby add-on > Refresh playlists/nodes
  • Changing our transcode approach with subtitles. You will now select the subtitles, emby will extract the subtitles (unless extracted previously or it's an external subtitle), it will takes a few moment, then the subtitles is appended to the player. It should give a better outcome and allow playback to start, instead of asking Emby to burn the subtitles to the video (which resulted in failure to play 95% of the time).

Fix:

  • Fix for home videos (being unable to back out of the menu). Running refresh playlists/nodes will fix this.
  • Fix to music, causing sync to crash

Version 2.1.0

 

We are getting ready to release a new stable version soon. Please report any issues you may encounter: http://emby.media/co...port-a-problem/

 

Can I ask a few users to report back about how the new throttle is working out? If you had to adjust your number requested at once from the server for the initial sync to complete, can you please reset the number requested back to 200, and go through the initial syncing process by resetting your local database. Let me know if the sync completes without crashing.

 

New:

  • Add a throttle (it will automatically adjust the number of items requested at once) to prevent crashing during the initial sync

Fix:

  • Do not update the video library when there's a music-only update
  • Fix to Next up, In-progress, Recent Emby view tag filtering

Brand new:

Our Kodi repositories, both stable (now 1.0.3) and beta (now 1.0.5) received an update. Remember, you can install both side by side. If you do, remember to turn disable automatic updates which is usually found in the side panel. This will give you control over when to update your add-ons.

 

We have a new, more convenient way to install the repositories. It will also be used to host custom builds used for troubleshooting (alpha). For more information, visit our wiki: https://github.com/M...mby-Repository 

  1. In the file manager, add the Emby Kodi source: http://kodi.emby.media
  2. Install from zip > Emby Kodi source you just created > Install one or both repositories.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Version 2.2.5

 

Quick follow up to 2.2.4. Mostly bug fixes.

 

New:

  • Add generate a new device Id option, found in the add-on settings > advanced (Useful if you plan on copying your setup from Kodi to other devices)
  • Offer to delete cached thumbnails upon database local database reset

Fix:

  • Breaking fix for views. You will notice duplicates in your video nodes. When you have a moment to spare, run the refresh playlists/nodes action found by launching the emby add-on (this is not reversible). Your homescreen shortcuts actions will need to be redirected to the new playlists/nodes. New installs are not affected by this. This was a necessary change. Sorry for the inconvenient :(
  • Fix pictures, the shortcut should now appear under photo add-ons > emby.
  • Fix grouped views not adjusting
  • Fix view shortcuts to follow emby ordering. This changes the Emby.nodes.X ordering (automatically created shortcuts and via launching the emby add-on). This does not change the video nodes ordering.
  • Fix ssl client certificate verification
  • Fix resume
  • Prevent artwork deletion from crashing the add-on
  • Fix to import virtual season artwork
