Watched status is reset after a second when using an external player

Recommended Posts

I am using an external player with Kodi. Once the user finishes watching and clicks on Kodi's dialog "Click 'Ok' when playback has ended", the particular video is marked as watched for a second. After which "Comparing Database" pop-up comes on the top-right corner and the video is again marked as unwatched. This happens even if the video is manually marked as watched after exiting the external player. However, this does not happen when using the built-in Kodi player.

The add-on is not setup to support external player playback.

 

When you end playback, Kodi may mark content as watched, but by that time it's too late, the add-on told the server not to mark as watched, therefore when the server sends back the update, it is marked as unwatched. Even manually marking as watched, you'd have to wait after this happens otherwise it will get overwritten.

 

You can try this build here: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/51794-long-lasting-trakt-plug-in-issue/?p=510518

Otherwise provide your Kodi log capturing this issue.
