Thinking of moving back to Emby for Kodi after using the Android TV app for awhile. I just miss all the keyboard shortcuts!

While using the Android app I enabled chapter image extraction and all looks/works well in that app and via the web interface.

While setting up Kodi this morning I made sure that chapter images were enabled in the Kodi app and that “force http...” was turned off in the add on settings. I am also using direct paths.

I dont see any chapter images unfortunately. I assume I should be seeing them in the bookmark section of Kodi right? Am I looking in the wrong spot or is this just not working for me?

How does Emby for Kodi know where to look for these Emby generated images? I know they are burried deep in the Emby hidden directory structure aren’t they?

Any help wood be great - Thanks

Kodi generates them itself with native paths.

Or use the addon with addon playback with disabled forced http paths to let Kodi "see" the real paths to get them.

Thanks @sualfred. So if my primary mode of playback is in Kodi there really is no reason to have Emby server generating chapter thumbnails is there? Any idea how to get rid of the ones I’ve already generated to free up some space on my server?

Does Kodi create the images in the background or something? This was a fresh install this morning and I see no images anywhere and see no option in kodi to initiate any sort of scan etc.?
