Some observations with Kodi Emby Plugin

Must say Kodi seems to be much better than Emby Theater, should have made the switch years ago (been holding out for the new version). It is however just way more of a pain to get a suitable skin and setup going. Slightly preferring Mimic over Arctic Zephyr: From Ashes skin. (Hopefully new Kodi 17 skin helps with this.)

More responsive than Emby Theater and most importantly the "6 button" remote actually works (can't rewind and fast forward small increments in Emby Theater).

 

Having a YouTube plugin is also great.

 

Using the default connection/play method between Emby and Kodi, and only have Trakt setup in Emby. But for some reason sometimes things show up twice in my Trakt history (two entries marked as watched at the same time). Also often if clicking on something watching 5 seconds and stopping, also gets marked as watched in Trakt.

 

(Still having stability issues I haven't looked into yet. Crash when starting up with windows and trying to play something and crash if idle for around 5 min.)

 

Friends all using Plex... Might have to actually give it a try.

Hey thanks for pointing out the trakt issue. I am looking into it now as I was not aware it started happening again. - I will explain the issue: Kodi itself automatically marks the content as watched if it's start stopped immediately. Because the emby add-on is listening to Kodi events, it manually marks the content as watched in Emby.

 

The best thing you can do for the crash is to post your Kodi log when it happens. Just in case, enable Kodi debug as well.

Ah OK not going crazy then. Happened quite a lot when testing out skins and clicking on media etc. Should be quite easy to replicate.

 

Thanks for the tips for debugging. Assuming it shouldn't be difficult to have a stable build. My crashes are quite easy to repeat, so should get to the bottom of it. Thanks for the tips, much appreciated.

Quick question - RE seeing Trakt ratings and setting Trakt rating from within Kodi. Assume I can't really do that because I'd need to give Kodi my Trakt details and then will have the double watched issue?

A possible solution then - the Emby plugin could see you have Trakt setup in Kodi and avoid doing Trakt updates from Emby server side? (Assuming possible. Probably too messy.)
