ANSWERED Kodi + Emby + External Player (MPC-HC / MPC-BE / DS Player)

Recommended Posts

balkerman

Is it even possible to use an external player with Kodi + Emby addon? I tried various players and means, but can't get it to work.

 

 

If YOU have managed to get Kobi and Emby to work with an external player (MPC-HC / MPC-BE / DS Player), could you let me know how?

 

 

Thanks heaps for the help...

Can you post a log of you trying to play via an external player and post that log? Set the add-on debug to info, no Kodi debug necessary. I'm curious to see how Kodi handles it. Thanks!

 

I do not use the feature myself, but it might give us some indication as to how you might be able to get it to work.

Awesome, if you are using Windows, you can find the file here:

\%AppData%\Roaming\Kodi\Kodi.log

For different platforms: http://kodi.wiki/view/Log_file/Advanced#Log_files

 

Or you can use the log uploader add-on. Step by step guide right here (How to post a log > first option): http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/17599-how-to-report-a-problem/

Ok, it looks like it should work correctly. However I think your network credentials are incorrect. Somehow your username is preceeded with the word "username:" which is odd. Are you able to remove this? I don't know where it would have been inserted and see if it's then able to load the file in the external player?

'username' is my username, the pc where the files are located is named 'username-pc' - the word in the middle is the share password.

 

Is that what you're referring to?

Doh! Yes, sorry I'm a bit tired.... :(

 

Ok, can you try something then? Go via Videos > Files > Add Videos and navigate to the share where your content is located. Kodi should prompt you for your network credentials. If you enter them there and check "remember" then back out and try to play something, does it plays successfully in the external player?
