Priority fix

 

Server has option for Library folders, but kodi plugin does not. It only looks at Movies and TV shows when launching Amby app.  Music does integrate but all three are limited unless you can add " folders" for each criteria as option under app

 

Let me explain

 

Movies and TV shows fine

 

Lets say i have private video collection which is stand up comedy. It is a video collection but not movies.  so i need to add it as a top level or seperate linkable option under kodi menu. ( Video Path )

Lest say i want to present Music not under Kodi criteria but based on folders that are organised on server, like 60's 70's top 40 etc.  so when i acess, it is not using library but instead displays folders. 

Lets ays I have Anime, again like comedy, it is not movie but personal folder which i want to add as menu item in kodi skin

 

fix would be to allow kodi users to access plugin "From Kodi Appearance" and link to any sub folder or criteria as observed under library on server. 

 

Each object as depicted under amby should be seen as a separate object under Kodi

 

If i am not making sense, let me know.

Music is still an issue. 

 

There is no option to view music as folders. 

 

I have tried multiple configuration options, but the code just doesn't have it.   so where do i submit requests

Not sure what you mean - if you are seeing something in native Kodi that is different when using Emby for Kodi then let us know, but it sound like you are talking about the way the Kodi library works.

So i dont have build at moment that can demo it. so here goes trying to explain

 

Emby music integration does an excellent job at importing Music into Music library that is accessible suing Kodi criteria - Songs, Albums etc

 

However when you add sources to music natively you point at a folder (source)  that contains the media.

 

You can access kodi  > Music > Sources >  and see the root folder

 

 

We however have our music organised under this folder within sub folders like 60's 70' 80's etc.   

 

Source

> 60s

>70s

>Now thats what i call...

>> Now 93 

>> Now 64

 

Then we point our Kodi Skin at the source folder on the home screen

 

Emby plugin does not present the source folder as an option so we cant link to it

 

Essentially we want users to be able to select "Music" on the home screen and be presented with a list of folders under the root source folders

 

Regards, HTPCS.

Sounds like your wanting something very custom, python will help you achieve what you want.
