EmbyCon Kodi add-on

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My nvidia shield updated Kodi to Matrix beta 1 and now i cant play anything from the main movies/tv shows etc menus.

 

I've updated embycon to v1.10.6

 

When i opened Kodi v18 previously a small box would come up saying 'connected to emby' which doesnt happen anymore. I can still see all of the video libraries but when i try and play something nothing happens.

If i go into the plugin and manually navigate to emby libraries - movies or tv shows then i can play things, but cant seem to do it from the main kodi menus.

 

Any ideas? Thanks

maybe a stupid question - but how can I show all my libaries on the main screen (movies/tv shows) when I am using Embycon only ? Because I didn't find the trick, I used always the Embruary skin (which is also nice but not yet available for Kodi 19)

EmbyCon does not sync items to the local kodi database so you will not be able to use the standard movie and TV nodes.

You can try the clone skin action in the addon main menu, there is a video showing it in the first post.

This will clone the default skin and add some movie and TV episode nodes to the home screen menus.

Try the clone skin action in the EmbyCon menu, there is a video of it in action in the first post.

Hi, where can I find embycons error log? Keeps randomly not working and telling me to check the error log, but there's nothing in the servers logs.

I did this - but then the skin is pretty ugly and i.e. can't be used for LiveTV anymore (at least I didn't find the right menues).

Yes the base skin is not for everyone, it is simple and gets the job done.

From what I hear the Embuary skin may be updated for Kodi 19 but I am not sure when that will happen.

This is usually the case for new versions of Kodi, when a new version comes out it can take some time for skins to catch up, Kodi 19 is a big change with the switch from Python2 to Python3 for all add-ons so it will take some time for all add-ons and skins to be updated and released for the new version.

Plus Kodi 19 is still in Beta, when it hits release candidate or it may even take until it hits release this time due to the Python3 changes for everything to catch up.

Thanks for your omments.

Then I just can paitently wait for a release of the Embuary skin - no big deal since I don't need to change to Kodi 19 (except my nature to want to have always the latest and greatest ;-))
