The Emby app on my Shield has this new season premiere playlist widget, it would be an interesting addition to my Emby for kodi setup. Does anyone know of it's possible to make this custom playlist on Kodi.

Do not have the time and option to check the Shield atm. Can you describe what this widget does/has as content?

It automatically adds new seasons of shows you previously watched. For example mine is currently showing me True Detective as a show I have previously watched that has a new season I have not watched yet

Ah okay. 

That's not possible with Kodi board tools.

 

In Embuary something similar is available in the "all tv shows" hub -> "Because you watched True Detective". It will return shows of the same genre.

Make a playlist or Video Node with

  • content/type: tvshows
  • rule: 'inprogress=true'
  • orderby dateadded
  • order: descending

That should give a similar if not the same effect. If you watch all episodes of a show it will disappear from the list. However when a new unwatched episode is added, it will reappear on the list.

 

Replace MyTVShowLibrary with the name of a TV Show library from your Emby server in the Video Node, or smart playlist example below and see if it works for you.

 

Video Node

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<node order="2" type="filter" visible="True">
       <label>MyTVShowLibrary</label>
       <icon>DefaultTVShows.png</icon>
       <content>tvshows</content>
       <match>all</match>
           <rule field="tag" operator="is">
               <value>MyTVShowLibrary</value>
           </rule>
           <rule field="inprogress" operator="true">
               <value></value>
           </rule>
       <limit>10</limit>
       <order direction="descending">dateadded</order>
</node>

 

Smart Playlist

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<smartplaylist type="tvshows">
       <name>MyTVShowLibrary</name>
       <match>all</match>
           <rule field="tag" operator="is">
               <value>MyTVShowLibrary</value>
           </rule>
           <rule field="inprogress" operator="true">
               <value></value>
           </rule>
       <limit>10</limit>
       <order direction="descending">dateadded</order>
</smartplaylist>

 

Hope that helps

Cheers,

LongMan

 

Edit: To further refine the list, so that it does not include shows that were 'tested' by watching a single episode, you can add another rule

<rule field="playcount" operator="greaterthan">

<value>1</value>

</rule>
