Since more and more users asked for it, I'm glad to announce native Emby server support for Yatse.
 
Full library sync, PVR, Offline media sync, transcoding, Chromecast are all supported.

Tolriq, great to see you here.

I just switched from mysql to using emby server as the backend for kodi a few weeks back so I must say this is great timing

New Yatse version 7.5.5 with Emby no more labelled as Beta as all reported issues are fixed :)

 

Still a lot to implement and still no transcoding support yet but includes:

- Global library synchronisation with offline cache

- Media download for offline playing / streaming (sync back playback position and watched status on reconnect).

- Stream media to local device (Require external player for video), to Chromecast, UPnP or Kodi devices. (From local device, Kodi, Emby, ...)

- Can seamlessly move streaming from devices to devices, start on Kodi, migrate to local device when walking to bedroom then continue on bedroom Chromecast.

 

And lot's of other things not related to Emby.

Hi Tolriq,

Do you have plans to use the emby.kodi queue sync plugin for incremental updates? The plugin stores database changes for each device since their last sync so when they connect again, they only sync the changes since the last sync which is much much quicker than a full sync.

This should not be needed with native emby support. What would be great is if all emby clients could be listed under the cast button as per other emby mobile apps ie: so yatse can remote control native emby clients the same way it can control kodi

It would be needed if I did incremental sync as there's no other way to implement that (Yatse runs a phone, it can't be connected 100% to get all push notifications). But 1) I do not like to depends on something that is not native to Emby nor I have control over. 2) Since Kodi API suxx with non static media IDs the sync system is not made to do incremental update.

It update single elements, like a movie / show when browsing it, but library sync will stay full for now.

 

 

And yes having emby clients shown in the cast button is on the large todo, but again big change from Kodi that only have one, and my internal API was first made for it, so I need another big rewrite to handle this :(

Best...remote...ever, seriously man... keep up the great work and thank you for including Emby support, I have pitched in and bought the app and have never regretted the decision.

 

By the way, I know you don't get enough of this... but I love your new skin and layout, the hell with the haters bubba.

Hi Tolriq,

I have a bunch of kodi boxes and I used to use mysql to connect them. In Yatse, I had selected one as the master and linked the others' databases. It worked really well.

I have now switched to emby as the backend and all those kodi boxes are using the kodi emby addon that syncs the emby library to the local kodi libraries.

I think it would be great if I could select emby as the master database and link all those kodi boxes to it in Yatse.

Thanks

Well this is not really possible as the JSON API does not return all necessary information. (Unless there's some hidden data like with uniqueId but then not for music).

Yatse does correctly handle what is played / resume point and everything needed. So you can add Emby in Yatse then play anything on any Kodi by selecting your Kodi's in Yatse player target.

I don't thinking anything would be missing and if it was the case then just say :)

Hi

​I tried Yatse for Emby and it works for the most part it works beautifully but there  I had some crashes, refusing to play certain files, refusing to next song forward etc tyupe stuff which I think part of the development process. I hope the stability improves along the way.

Basically I recommend this tool to Emby users.

​Here is a small feature request list

​1) Rating/favoriting songs/albums

​2) Randomizing the playlist.

​3) The playlist should show the current song in shuffle mode when the playlist is open. It is kind of hard to find the curently playing song in a long playlist.
