I'm starting this thread because I love seeing Kodi setups and I'm sure I'm not the only one! :)

To make your post shorter, you can create an album in imgur.com for free. Add your images to the album and share it! This way, you don't need to add full size images directly to your post.

 

Take screenshots in Kodi using Emby webclient

  1. Create a free account on www.imgur.com
  2. In the Emby web client, select Kodi as a device and click Remote Control.
  3. Under Controls, press the Take Screenshot button. In Kodi, the first time you use the option, it will ask you where you want to save your screenshots. Choose an accessible location so you can easily upload them later.

  4. Upload your screenshots to imgur. Create an album and add the images to it. You can organize the order if you'd like. For more help: https://help.imgur.com/hc/en-us/articles/201146429-How-do-I-create-an-album-
  5. Post your album. Grab the link of your album. You need to remove any # and following numbers. It should look like the following:
    Album link - http://imgur.com/a/YBp1g#0
    Final link - http://imgur.com/a/YBp1g
    
  6. In your post, select Special BBcode > media and add the link under "media URL":
    555d6ddcbd75d_BBC.jpg
    This will be added to your post: [media]http://imgur.com/a/YBp1g[/media]
    
  7. You can preview your post to make sure it worked correctly, that's it!

Kodi version: Helix 14.2

Skin: Aeon Nox

 

I modified the background artwork I've found with the power of Google, to make it look more like a theme. :) For my TV background, I have many sigils from Game of thrones on rotation. I picked Aeon Nox for the many views it offers. It's very versatile and I love my wall of movies! I have too many TV shows, so I like splitting them between Favorites and All TV shows. By marking my current shows as favorite, it allows me to get to them faster.

I didn't follow directions so feel free to delete my post.

 

Here's a bad quality video of my Emby+Kodi system at 6 minute 30 seconds in.

Very nice!

 

What option is that for the disc to appear?  Newbie to XBMC

In the titan theme it automatically pops up on the poster shift view after stopping on an item.

does one need a windows install to do this or is it possible with openelec on an rpi as well?   I havent really looked, just curious first before wasting time looking for something that may not exist.,

Is there a guide to get to here?  I have a fresh install of Win 7.  I have Emby server up and running.  Do I just install Kodi and then the Emby plugin?

This is just for motivating @@im85288 to develop touch friendly Arctic Zephyr Skin :)

 

Isengard Beta 2 works amazingly on Galaxy6 Edge just like working on a desktop computer. Even the video themes work flawlessly with in the library.

I did the setup with Official Kodi Remote on my iPhone :o Actually once you set it up it works ok without the remote for basic functionality...

What a coincidence, isengard hit the Google Play Store today. Such a shame app does not have the skin that it deserves ;)

Are there any decent touch skins out there for Kodi on an android phone?

Since iOS 8.3 jailbreak released recently I am digging more in to touch friendly skins. "Rapier" looks like the best skin from functionality point of view. Most of the other "touch friendly" ones actually have some problems.

 

Edit:

Titan Mediabrowser by far the best touch capable skin.

I have four Kodi-Emby setups so far:

  • Kodi Isengard RC1 for windows box
  • OSMC (Raspberry Pi 2)
  • Retropie (Kody 14.2 on Raspberry Pi 2)
  • Kodi Isengard RC1 for Android (Samsung Galaxy S5)

They are all running beta Kodi 1.1.13 and so far so good. Besides facing some library resets every now and then, all media seems to be working just fine (Emby server is running on a i7 16 GB of RAM and three NAS that add up to 20 TB of media). 

 

I´d just want to say thank you to the Kodi and Emby teams... the add-on has evolved amazingly over the last few months and now I´d say they work really well together.

Switched skins, I love Titan but AZE is just so much more pleasing to my eyes. Plus it looks neat with disparity backgrounds :o

 

Kodi version: Isengard 15.0

Skin: Arctic Zephyr Exploded

Is there anyway using the ap to separate out the movies?  For example, my kids movies are in one folder, movies are in another, stand-up in a third.  These all get lumped into movies now.

just customize the submenu, you can add the folder seperately. I have the same type of setup, kids movies in 1 folder, rest of the movies in another. So on the submenu I added a link straight to kids movies.

 

Customize home menu > edit submenu > choose shortcut > video library >  then choose the folder you want to add

The default kodi skin 'confluence' does not allow for this level of customisation you must install a custom skin like titan or Arctic zephyr

Hey Shaefurr, out of curiosity, what are you using for your live tv?  The TV Guide image that you have is pretty cool, just curious how you have it organizing by show as opposed to having the grid setup.
