At the moment the EMBY add-in uses the aspect ratio of the video file, so in almost all cases it shows up as 1.78x in KODI.
It would be useful to default or have the option to show the aspect ratio of the original movie, which I would find much more useful - eg 2.35:1 etc
I use metabrowser to collect some of the metadata and this collects the right (original) aspect ratio (from IMDB), and saves it near the top of the NFO at the root level
<plot>A DEA agent and an undercover Naval Intelligence officer who have been tasked with investigating one another find they have been set up by the mob -- the very organization the two men believe they have been stealing money from.</plot>
<outline>Two hardened criminals get into trouble with the US border patrol after meeting with a Mexican drug lord, and then revelations starts to unfold.</outline>
<mpaadescription>Rated R for violence throughout, language and brief nudity</mpaadescription>
However when EMBY refreshes the NFO file a lot of the times it wipes this aspect ratio information (not always, last time it wiped about half of them after I had refecthed them all using metabrowser) and writes an aspect ratio in the Video segment / section of the NFO file - which is correct in that it provides the aspect of the file but as noted above I'd prefer the original aspect ratio to be reported in the Kodi.
So it would be nice to have an option to ensure that when passing data to Kodi that it gives the user the choice as to which aspect ratio to use, and does not wipe the original aspect ratio.
