Emby for Kodi [Album Support]


Twisted

Recommended Posts

I cannot get my albums to show up in Kodi. Everything is visible in Emby, but only artists and songs will transition over to Kodi. I have tried a fresh install of Kodi and upgraded to "Isengard", nothing seems to help. Is this a known issue?

Works fine for me. I just select the album item on the submenu. Which skin are you using?

i am using Xperience 1080, but it also does not work on the standard skin. I tried Helix and Isengard, they both have everything but Albums showing up. I reistalled everything and delted my old profile, but still no dice :(

Not familiar with those skins but if you try and add a custom menu item you should be able to select albums from within the music menu.

The challenge is, it does not see my albums at all, so I cannot add a custom menu item to it. So there must be something going on with the new build or my set-up is broke. I was hoping to find some ways to troubleshoot this issue.

Did you try enabling Library mode in Kodi Music section? I couldn't browse my music either until I enabled Library mode. :)

@@Twisted - Change your skin to confluence. Go into music, then press left to open the config tab... then enable Music library mode. Let us know if you then see your albums.

@@Angelblue05 I checked and it was actually already on. I did select update library (from Kodi) and then everything did load. I do not know if it will continue to update now or not. The only unfortunate part is it does not show the albums I created in Emby, it shows the actually album for the song.

 

I am trying to find a way to create a playlist by folder, so it updates as I add songs. I figured out a way to do this by putting songs in a folder and creating a custom album. Now every time I add a song, it updates the album (playlist). It’s not a perfect system, but it works. I was hoping these playlists would show up in Kodi, as they do in Emby, but no dice.

I actually do not use playlists. I need a method to create a playlist by folder and have it update as I add songs to it. The only option I have found is creating an album and locking the metadata. This works great, the only downside is it sorts the music by song number.

I was looking to pull this into Kodi, but it does not see my albums, the way that Emby does.

Why are you trying to create a playlist by folder?

The only option I have found to create playlist in Emby is manually. This doesn’t work for me, as I am constantly adding songs to my playlist. I currently already put them into a folder by playlist. I do not see a way in Emby to create a playlist and have it monitor a folder for updates.

 

However, it does see music in a folder as an album and that will automatically get updated as I add new songs. So today I am using albums as my playlist until this enhancement comes about.
