I've been using Emby since long before it became Emby, and the Emby for Kodi plugin since it was released. Playback has always been rock solid with Emby for Kodi, that is until a few months ago.
Since then playback fails way too frequently in Kodi with the message "One or more items failed to play. Check the log for more information about this message.". It also takes a while (typically 20-40 seconds) before this message appears. Usually it will actually start playing the stream exactly when this message is being shown, and of course the stream stops playing as soon as I click OK to get rid of the message. So the stream actually starts to play about 9 times out of 10 this message is shown, when it's not the message will just show without the stream playing.
When this happens every subsequent attempt will fail the same way, the fix seems to be to restart Kodi. Extremely annoying since Kodi takes a while to restart because of my massive list of Live TV channels. It happens almost daily so it's most annoying.
All this started about 3-4 months ago, about the same time as I upgraded to Kodi Leia, but I can't say for certain that it was exactly the time when I switched to Leia. But before this started playback was always rock solid, and I have this exact issue on all my six Kodi installations, and with two different Emby servers.
It just happened again so I'm attaching the kodi log from the client and the server log from the Emby server just a couple of minutes after I had this issue. I tried to restart the stream 4 times, and every time I had the issue I describe above.
Please have a look at this most annoying issue. Oh and I have a Emby Premiere lifetime key in case that matters at all.
