I have finally found what the problem is from the IT manager at my company who is familiar with port forwarding. I'll post the solution here so it might help others.
If you use a ddns to access emby remotely because your IP changes periodically there is one more IP that can change, your internal IP. You will need to permanently assign your internal IP address so that it will never change including the subnet mask and and default gateway. Make these changes to your Ip4 adapter settings and it's fixed. If you need any help getting your subnet mask or default gateway that is where I got info from my companies IT dept, but that is all you will need to change in order to make sure that your internal IP address never changes and your DDNS will work without interruptions as this has happened to me several times in the past and no one has been able to give any assistance on kodi or emby support forums. The typical setting is to automatically obtain an IP which is where the problem can arise.
Thanks Luke, I don't seem to get notifications of post replies and I just saw your response when I came here to post this solution.
