I know I must be missing something simple that maybe I changed when I first installed. When I was setting this up I was always logging in as myself. Now that things are mostly working I wanted it, on launch to be able to go to the login screen and you either select myself or the Kids user. I have the kids user set up but I can't figure out what I need to do to get it to ask at each login. 

 

Thanks

 

Josh

You need to login with an Admin account onto EMBY server app and enable the login prompt of the users you want showing up.

 

This is done by clicking in "users" tab of the said UI. After that scroll down and check the corresponding boxes.

Thanks @djhifi

 

I have that all enabled (i'll attach the screenshot). What should the setting be on the Kodi/Emby plugin? Right now mine is set to manual and it has a user name in it. Should I clear that out? Should it be set to Emby Connect in there? 

 

I think I've tried both but I can try it again. 

 

Josh

 

PS.. The user that I attached doesn't show an email address attached for Emby connect. I did that afterwards but it's there and working.

@JoshFink

 

I thought the OP was in reference to the server side. Apologies. It seems you have everything correctly set on that matter.

 

Regarding the specific issue you can leave it manual. What you must do is create the number of profiles you need in KODI itself. Then they will be presented after each restart/power on.

 

Furthermore (and I don't know your actual awareness), "Emby Connect" would need you to register with Emby Media, on each user you would like. I personally don't use it as it involves PIN codes cross-checkings. And, in my opinion, is best suited for external streaming (i.e. If you want to access your home server while you are away and you don't remeber the external WAN IP).

 

Btw, don't forget to configure everything with each profile you go on creating. I personally don't use that scheme because I only need 1 user per machine (3 machines 3 users). But to the best of my knowledge what I've said is the correct way to go if you would like the opposite I have (3 users 1 machine).

 

Report back if solved please.

Thanks.. I had a feeling that might be the case but before I went into the Kodi profiles I wanted to make sure.

 

Thanks again.

Hey, no problem. Glad it's sorted.

 

You have it further explained in here as well (where else :D ):
