You need to install our repo, see here:

http://emby.media/co...or-kodi-10-liv/

 

To install it, you can either download it on a PC, then go to Kodi->System->Addons->Install from zip file and browse to the PC on your network.  Or, you can download it via a browser on the shield itself.

 

Then go back to Kodi->System->Addons->Install From Repository->Kodi Emby Addons->Video Addons.

 

The video in the post I linked above shows the process.

Cheers for the reply, yeah I was doing that but emby kept failing on install, then I realized I was using a test build of kodi so un-installed that downloaded a beta and all seems to be going ok at the minute as I type emby doing it's scan :)

Spoke too soon, whilst scanning it came up with an error saying "library sync has exited you should restart kodi now. Please report this on the forums" so I restarted kodi only to go through the whole process again with the same error warring?

Are you saying you set up video sources inside Kodi?  You shouldn't do that - you just need to install Kodi, then the addon.  If you did point Kodi to video sources, you are going to need to delete them.

Thanks for the reply, I tired installing it both ways with different builds of kodi and was getting no where, in the end it turned out to be emby for kodi beta version causing the problem switched to stable version and all is fine at the minute :)

Suggestion: when first setting up something you are unfamiliar with stick to stable versions, not test builds and betas jeez

If it's crashing during the initial sync it's probably because you need to adjust the number of items gathered at once from your server

The Amazon Fire Stick is one of those "low-powered" devices people keep talking about :)

It's finicky with the ATV app as well.

Everything is automatically transcoded as it's not powerful enough to Direct Stream.

Ok, next time post your Kodi log. Otherwise, it won't get fixed, whatever the issue is: http://emby.media/co...port-a-problem/
