Somewhat related to this prior request ( https://emby.media/c...stubs-and-tags/ ) it would be nifty and useful to add support for the Kodi Media Stub embedded data, which would then be displayed when a user tries to Play a Media Stub item.
When you try to play a media stub file, Kodi will present a dialog box with the static message, "Please insert the following disc:", on the first line and the item's library title on the second line. An Eject/Load button is available to open the optical drive tray or, for a slot-loading drive, eject any currently inserted media. When a disc is inserted in the drive, the Play button is enabled and selecting it will begin playback of the disc.
You can also replace the title and/or add a custom message to be displayed when attempting to play a media stub file. This is accomplished by adding the following to the blank text file that is used for the stub:
<discstub> <title>Alternative Title</title> <message>Message to be displayed</message> </discstub>
This message will be displayed on the third line of the dialog box. You may use this message to provide additional information, such as the disc number/side to be inserted or, if you use a special numbering scheme for organizing your DVD/Bluray collection, the location number of the expected disc.
