I wanna share with you this native path problem I've just found on Kodi (it's 18.4 / 18.5, but I think the version doesn't matter).
I have a folder on my QNAP NAS (where Emby latest server is running), and I added it in the Emby library at this path :
Native path : \\10.208.52.252\Multimedia\Video\2160p\
Everything is fine .. but .. I have another folder called 2160pUNT (Untouched), so, in Emby is :
Native path : \\10.208.52.252\Multimedia\Video\2160pUNT\
In Emby standalone client everything works fine. In Kodi all the 2160pUNT folder files are indexed and into the database, but when I try to play them , are all "file missing" .. and I found out why.
The native path in Kodi is wrong .. a "/" has been added between 2160p and UNT .. look at the RED slash : smb://10.208.52.252/Multimedia/Video/2160p/UNT/
I guess the problem is that he has in the library a folder named 2160p, and when a folder with the same starting name is added (like 2160pUNT), something goes wrong and he puts a / after the shortest path, thinking that everything that comes after it is something into that folder. (I hope my explanation is understandable).
Btw I solved renaming one of the two folders.
What do you think about ?
