Version 3.0.24

 

Changes:

  • Remove Google Analytics

Fixes:

  • Modified the DeviceId again to ensure uniqueness. Apologies. To remove duplicate device entries, delete them in your emby dashboard > devices. Shut down your running Kodi instances. Restart your server and you should be good to go.

stable/beta
Version 3.0.26

 

Changes:

  • Revert recent device Id changes. Your devices will revert back to their old Ids. I am just not happy with how things worked out. To remove duplicates under active devices (which is only a cosmetic issue), I shut down Kodi after updating the add-on, then restarted my server. We should be back to normal and will never change the device id process again (unless Kodi gives us a permanent id that is unique to the installation, which will likely never happen)

stable/beta
Version 3.0.29a

The changes should start slowing down now. I'm pretty set on leaving Krypton frozen now and focusing on Leia mostly. I have a few changes in mind. Please report back if you still experience issues with Emby for Kodi. Thanks guys.

 

Changes:

  • ​Re-added verify ssl setting. Default is now set to True. Disable it in the add-on settings if you have a self signed certificate. There is no other reason to touch that setting.
  • Progress report is now fully dependent on your server. The add-on will only report updates when you pause/resume/seek or every 4min30 instead of every 10 seconds (less traffic).
  • Update Leia database to 110.

Fixes:

  • ​Library sync exited error and server restart errors.

stable/beta
Version 3.0.33

 

Changes:

  • Added the Kodi icon to display in your emby server (under active devices and devices tab) (Edit: This seems to not work for everyone. Will be corrected next build)

Fixes:

  • Suppress dialog "Not connected to your emby server" when add-on was triggered before being connected.
  • Browsing content/photos with non-ascii characters
  • Define "tvdb" as the rating type for tv shows. If you have an add-on that needs it defined, you'll need to repair your tv shows to force the fix into place.
  • Trailers causing an error before playback

beta
Version 3.1.08a

 

This is a major beta release so you'll need to reset your database. I've been working on this update for the last few months during my free time. Test it out and report any issues or regressions, thank you! If you enjoy this update, please consider making a donation here http://ko-fi.com/A5354BI

 

Note, this is alpha/beta, so expect bugs and resets and restarts.

If you want to install this build without using the beta repo, you can grab all the zips using this method, everything is located in the public testing folder:

You'll need the 3 dependencies installed first (v0.12), then installing emby for kodi

https://github.com/MediaBrowser/plugin.video.emby/wiki/Emby-Repository

 

I hope the wait was worth it.

 

Changes:

  • New hybrid mode: You can now select which library you want to sync to Kodi. Libraries that are not synced will still be accessible via dynamic plugin listing. Launch the addon and open the context menu on libraries for additional options.
  • Faster sync times (in addition, if you are on the beta server 3.6x, you'll see a giant difference)
  • The syncing process now creates a restore point. In the event the sync gives an error, you'll be able to restore your progress. Obviously if the problem persists, you should post your issue here.
  • Support playlists and recordings via dynamic plugin listing -- maybe even live TV (since I don't have live TV, I can't confirm) 
  • Update/repair/remove per library basis (launch the add-on, open the context menu on the library of your choice). At the moment, to remove content that doesn't belong, you'll need to do a repair of that library. However, I'm looking to include this behavior in the update process as well. Just need some more time to get it done.
  • Optional start up sync. If you have Kodi companion installed, your updates will be applied when Kodi is started. If you don't, then you can manually update libraries when you want, to grab the latest updates.
  • Supports Leia Beta1. Moving forward, the add-on will be able to support every Kodi database. This will allow to support versions, even if they are not released yet.
  • Multi server support: Additional servers will be accessible via dynamic plugin listing. Check the add server option when launching the add-on.
  • You can now update your server information in the add-on settings.
  • Support play next action from Emby
  • Settings have been simplified
  • Audio and subs will now be automatically set following your server user settings.
  • The aspect of the addon that changes based on kodi version is dynamic. At Kodi startup, it will look if there's an update and apply it. You can manually check for updates for your Kodi version via addon settings > advanced > check for updates.
  • Homevideos & photos type libraries are located under pictures add-ons. This is to prevent errors for picture content. 

Fixes:

  • Artwork caching causing Kodi to crash during the initial sync
  • Empty show detection
  • Series pooling
  • Boxset refresh
  • Recently played for music
  • Path validation for native playback mode
  • Context menu should load faster
  • Nodes -- They were one level too deep preventing skins from browsing beyond a certain level.
  • Sleep/Wake errors
  • Properly mask server addresses and tokens (except during the initial sync when everything is being setup). This can't be fixed if Kodi itself prints the information to your log (i.e. when playing content)
  • Other minor fixes

Translation will have to be redone, most strings have been changed. If you are interested in helping translate the project, contact me with the language you wish to translate. I'll provide you with the old strings so you can copy paste what still exists (their ids are the same) and translate the new strings.

beta
Version 3.1.13a

 

Please refer to this post if you are still on 3.0.34. Once you have updated to this build, please run a Check for updates under the addon settings > advanced or restart Kodi this one time to ensure you have the latest Kodi-emby database version. It is possible this step is not necessary.

 

Fixes:

  • Profile switching asking to reauthenticate
  • Remove items event (if you are on server 3.6x, do a reset of your local database) Hopefully the only time that you'll need to do that. Database changes are normally smaller, but this one was necessary to be compatible with server events in 3.6x
  • Refresh boxsets task
  • Music albums merging with no musicbrainzid, repair your music library to apply the fix.
  • Display boxsets for dynamic listings
  • Kodi hanging on exit sometimes
  • Duplicates regarding synced libraries
  • Keymap delete action

beta
Version 3.1.14a

 

Please refer to this post if you are still on 3.0.34.

 

Changes:

  • Add option to display sensitive information in logs (for troubleshooting purposes)

Fixes:

  • Adding new tv shows
  • Favorites
  • Boxsets for plugin listing (it should display correctly now, and you'll be able to see the movies inside)
  • Music rescan tags prompt (you need to repair one of your music library if you have that issue when entering the music library in Kodi).

beta
Version 3.1.17a

 

Please refer to this post if you are still on 3.0.34. I will look to add the backup option again for the next build, including more submenus for dynamic listings. A reminder, please provide your Kodi log when reporting issues, so it's easier for me to troubleshoot.

 

Fixes:

  • Season fanart (update or repair your tv libraries)
  • Missing tv shows and content
  • patching system
  • Update libraries
  • Series pooling (repair your tv libraries to correctly apply series pooling)
  • Path verification for native playback mode
  • Subtitles encoding while transcoding

Tip, you can sync repair, update, remove individual libraries via Launching emby for kodi. Then opening the context menu on the library you want.
