Problems with playing files


Go to solution Solved by Angelblue05,

Hi everyone,


I'm getting problems with playing my files.


Here the explanations :


To begin, I'm running emby server on my raspberry (raspBian OS) connected on ethernet. All is running fine. I'm abble to play some files from the windows media player in the network files, so I think there is no problem here.


I'm running Kodi from my computer, connected by Wi-Fi on the same network as the Emby server of course. Installled the plugin Emby for Kodi, wrote the right ip address, verified twice. Connected as an administrator user of the server.


All the synchronization is running fine, I can see all my movies, series with the right pictures, title, etc...

But when I want to play a movie, kodi says "error" or nothing happens. Checked the log file, but as a beginner, I cannot determinate what is wrong and how to fix it.


Here it is : https://paste.ubuntu.com/23276463/


Can anyone give me some help please ?

Hi there, your paths are incorrectly formatted. You need to convert them into network paths in your server dashboard > library.



Otherwise, go into the add-on settings > playback > enable play from HTTP. This will bypass your path issue and the server will provide the file directly via HTTP instead.
