How do I install and use EmbyCon

Here are some short videos showing how to install and use EmbyCon

How do I interact with my media?
EmbyCon does not use the built in Kodi DB so to interact with your media you have a few choices.
 
1. Open the EmbyCon add-on from the add-on list in Kodi, this will let you view and play back your Emby content directly using the add-on

2. Use EmbyCon to clone the default Estuary skin that adds home screen integration for EmbyCon widgets, this can be done from the EmbyCon "Add-on Actions"->"Clone default skin" menu
2. Install a skin that automatically integrates the EmbyCon addon or lets you customise the home screen like Embuary : https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/49724-support-thread-embuary-a-emby-kodi-skin/
 
Why does my playback keep stopping when paused?
By default when the Kodi screen saver kicks in playback is stopped.
You can turn this off in the Add-on settings.
EmbyCon Settings -> Events -> Screensaver -> Stop media playback on screensaver activation
 
Why do I keep getting prompted to select a user?
By default when the screen saver is dismissed the select Emby user dialog will pop up.
You can turn this off in the Add-on settings.
EmbyCon Settings -> Events -> Screensaver -> Show change user dialog

Hello,

Thanks for this plug in. I am encountering a problem. When I install "Python image library" on the 1st video at 2 min 40. I have a notification that displays error and tells me to go and consult the journal. For information I install Kodi on my Qnap NAS. Do you have an idea ? My version in Kodi is a 19 Alpha 1.

Thank you in advance.

Cordially.

You have to install a more recent Kodi Matrix version, eg. a nightly build.

Yes, you just need to enter the remote address manually in the EmbyCon add-on settings.

Yes ! it works 

So great with "Home Screen Integration" !!! 😍

 I have a RPI 3b+ // Is there a significant difference in performance with an RPI4 ? I hesitate to buy it to test.

How to help you participate in the translation of the interface in French ?

Hi,

Since update 1.9.106 'direct file path' is not working anymore.

- I can't find the SMB settings anymore within the embycon configuration

- Due to this issue I can't download subtitles within kodi anymore and place them next to the video file in the network directory. Also when you search for a subtitle within kodi you normaly see the video file name beneath the grid with found subtitles. That is not the case anymore due to the fact that the file name is always 'stream.<video extention>'. So I never know which subtitle could match my video version.

I downgraded embycon to 1.9.82 and now everything is working again.

Is this a bug or is 'direct file path' deliberately removed from the addon?

its still there, you just need to enable "Allow direct file playback" in the playback settings of the Add-on.

I did but that did not help. Also the settings for SMB username and password are gone. So even if you select "allow direct file playback" you can't set the SMB user.

Also i would expect that when I set the username and passwordt for 'direct file path' in version 1.9.82 the settings are set correctly when I update to version 1.9.106

Use the kodi file manager to connect to the file share and set the password.
