Where can I get the latest version?
The latest version of EmbyCon can be installed from the stable repository.
https://kodi.emby.tv/
 
Where can I get the source?
https://github.com/faush01/plugin.video.embycon

 

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.

I guess it doesn't support all the Emby libraries by default? I don't see an EmbyCon node for my music videos library for example.

Correct, not all library types are supported. I added the main ones initially but the emby library types have increased over time.

EDIT:
Music videos are supported, I added them a while ago.

Could you add support to play theme.mp3 for movies and tv-shows if such a file exists in the movies or tv-shows main directory?

maybe with an option to enable or disable it because not everyone would like to have it :)

I had this with my local kodi libs but as the movies with EmbyCon don't use the direct path to the files it is no longer working.

this would be great.

Thanks

It is probably possible but I am not sure it is going to be added. EmbyCon is all about being simple and working, adding more background services to the base addon is not something I take lightly and for now not something I will be adding.

Unless I'm blind, I don't see a way to add them as a node? It didn't automatically detect my music vids library anyway.

edit: running the newest version, 1.9.82
