stable/beta

Version 4.0.3

 

Make sure you update to this version to avoid errors. The wiki has been updated. A few things remain to be done, but I hope you'll have a look. Changes should slow down now. Getting close to starting beta again.

 

Changes:

  • Home videos and pictures will now show under videos, but know that pictures will not display correctly this way. It still remains under picture add-ons.
  • Dependencies have been updated to 0.14. If you have difficulty installing them, you can find them here I can't control the max version of the dependencies add-ons. Kodi updated to 0.14 silently and so, you need to update to 4.0.3 for the main add-on to resolve playback issues. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Fixes:

  • Playback for Leia
  • Masterlock

beta

Version 4.0.6a

 

Changes:

  • Kodi Leia playback adapted for the new strm link (add-on playback). Please test it.
  • Related to the new playback for Leia, a new setting in the playback tab > Loading splash video. This is the video you see paused prior to playback starting.

More about the playback change:

You'll notice an emby loading video. This is normal, it sets up playback. This new method brings us a few benefits worth noting. It is a bit faster and is more stable than the previous plugin approach, If you are direct playing using add-on playback, chapter images will now display and subtitles add-ons will now be able to see your real path during playback. Please test and give feedback.

 

What you should expect:

emby-loading.mp4 video paused --> (dialogs like resume, etc) --> playback starts as usual.

 

This change can be backported to Krypton and will be if everything goes well with Leia testing.

 

 

2/14

Edit: There was a small resume issue. Just restart Emby for Kodi and it should work again.

beta

Version 4.0.7a

Small follow up for 4.0.6a.

 

Changes:

  • Context menu now offers Emby play. This is compatible with native playback, it will simply launch playback as if it were add-on playback. This way it will load cinema mode, additional parts, etc.

Fixes:

  • New playback method. Please try it and report back if there's any playback issues still.
  • Multi-part playback with new method
  • Multi-version episodes. Repair your library once to remove the bad entries. Future additions will be added correctly.

2/21

There was a small bug with updating tv shows. Restart Emby for Kodi, it should work again. You may need to update your libraries to pick up on the changes that happened between then and now.

beta

Version 4.0.9a

Small follow up for 4.0.6-7a. Please update to this version to avoid errors. If you can't see the update, follow this https://github.com/M...r-emby-for-kodi

 

Changes:

  • Music database rescan patch, under Emby for Kodi > manage libraries. This is to silence the "Would you like to rescan your music" prompt you may get navigating your music.
  • Permanent users, the option has been turned into a mini script that is easier to set. Try it out, under the add-on settings > Interface.
  • Re-added cache all artwork (open Emby for Kodi) to force cache all your artwork at once and clean up your thumbnails. Please use responsibly
  • Disabled force cache artwork for large syncs for low powered devices (less than 3GB memory) to stop Kodi from crashing.
  • New add-on settings under playback, Delay playback. This is mostly to adjust if playback should start slower, in the event you have auto framerate switching enabled. It should be left to it's default value otherwise.

Fixes:

  • Resuming with CoreElec
  • Context menu transcode

beta

Version 4.0.11a

Version to fix bugs introduced with 4.0.9. 

 

Reminder: This is beta, if you don't want to help out with testing, which is perfectly fine :), switch to the stable version to avoid being frustrated if stuff stop working. I use beta to test new ideas, sometimes it may break in between versions, even if I try to avoid it as much as possible. Thanks for your understanding.

 

Fixes:

  • The patching system should now respect your current setup version and not get ahead with a version that is not compatible with the add-on.
  • Cache all artwork should now trigger correctly. Careful on low powered devices. If your Kodi crashes, please let me know.
  • Shield being detected as low powered when it shouldn't be

beta

Version 4.0.12a

 

Fixes:

  • Live tv stream not terminating correctly
  • Resume dialog is ignored in auto play scenarios
  • CoreElec playback, please ensure you are on the CE stable 9.0.1. Playback seems to be ever changing at the moment. This will need adjustments as we move forward.
  • Discart missing
  • Last connection mode used being overwritten in corner cases

beta

Version 4.0.13a


Changes:
  • New "simple play" settings for add-on playback, under add-on settings > playback. The setting allows playback to resolves with a single video, ignoring cinema mode and additional parts to make it compatible with external player playback.

Fixes:
  • The emby-loading video was removed, playback has been reworked again to achieve stability and speed. Add-on playback speed is now almost as quick as native playback. Chapter images, and other improvements remain with this newer approach.
  • Other playback anomalies should be resolved now.
  • Series pooling should be applied correctly... edit: small issue found. Please test with the next beta version.
  • Artwork caching memory usage should remain under control to prevent low powered devices from crashing.
