No playback with beta add on.

Are you using nfs shares? Let me know, because as I said in the github reply it return the path, is it the correct path? It seems Kodi is unable to locate your file at the location.

nope.

 

Add on is in a Pi2 (openelec) emby server is on an Ubuntu box, all files are local on the Ubuntu box. nfs server is installed on the Ubuntu box, but not in use by these drives.

So is that path mounted in the OS on the Pi?  Meaning, is the file actually accessible on the Pi through the same path as it's stored on the Ubuntu box:

/media/3TB/Movies/... ?

 

If not, then that's your issue.  You would need to either mount it there (via NFS mount in fstab), use Path Substitution in Emby server (use nfs://server-ip/path/to/nfs/share) - this would use Kodi's NFS protocol stack, or in the addon enable the option to "Play from HTTP" so that it uses Emby's streaming capability.  Play from HTTP would probably be the easiest.

Nope the Pi is blank, only connection between the Pi & Server is the emby add on. I reset kodi ( removed /storage/.kodi) started up and installed the addon that was all.

 

There are no custom mounts in the Pi, no USB sticks etc, only thing connected is a flirc remote thing

 

/media/3TV/ etc is the local path on the Ubuntu box

So you need to either mount it or set up path substitution.   It probably was silently falling back to HTTP in the stable version.

OK so help me out a little.

I dint really want to mount it, if I am going to mount it i may as well just use nfs rather than emby, for what i use it for.

 

What's involved with path substitution?

 

i presume there us no way to get it to fall back to http as before

Hopefully someone will jump in with an actual NFS example, but like this with ''/media" and "nfs://{ip}/media" instead:

You can also go back to using HTTP - go into settings and turn on 'Play from HTTP instead of SMB' - however some things like SRT subs will not work.

Path substitution is easy.  You can find it in the Library settings on your Emby Server.

 

I'm using it currently.  In my example below, this basically tells Emby clients to replace any occurrence of /share/media-pub with nfs://<serverIP>/share/media-pub - my NFS export just happens to be /share/media-pub but it could redirect to any other share name if I had set it up differently.

And you can see that I have my Movies and TV Shows paths under /share/media-pub

Kodi has the ability to connect to NFS shares directly.  So when it's given a path like nfs://... it can use that to connect to the NFS server and stream the media file.  Path substitution is just a way to tell the Emby clients how to translate the local path that the Emby server uses into a remote network file path.

If you opt for the fallback, you can simply enable play from HTTP in the add-on settings (leave the video quality at default value and it will behave the same it did in stable). That's it.
