I seem to have difficulties getting a reasonable experience viewing photos through Kodi.
Emby for Kodi 4.1.18
Kodi 18.5 on LibreELEC 9.2.0 (RPi3)
Emby Server is 188.8.131.52 for Windows
I originally used QNAP for our server however since it's specs are fairly garbage, I thought I'd try my PC as the server instead to see if anything changes but it appears not. This is all over LAN.
When I go to Kodi's Pictures section > Addons > Emby and browse to the folder, I am unable to start a slideshow. It spins as if it's loading something, then a bit of time later the screen turns black and sometimes it crashes the Kodi (unresponsive, needs a reboot) other times I am able to back out to the menus.
If you view the log during this it is filled with the following over and over for each (I suspect) image in the folder:
2019-12-08 00:25:00.408 T:1936829872 ERROR: Error loading the current image 117: plugin://plugin.video.emby/?mode=photoviewer&id=138 2019-12-08 00:25:00.408 T:1450652544 WARNING: CreateLoader - unsupported protocol(plugin) in plugin://plugin.video.emby/?mode=photoviewer&id=139
I've attached the entire log file too.
It may not be related but also when I click on an individual image instead, I am unable to press left or right etc to move on to another image. I'd say this is a fairly natural movement when looking at images, so just curious regarding that specific point as it makes it additionally difficult to browse when slideshow isn't playing ball.
I'd say the loading is also pretty poor for LAN, however with it being Kodi on a RPi3 and the nature of the whole linkage being somewhat "hacky-like" then I can live with that.
I understand that Kodi has vastly different methods when it comes to Pictures and Music, but just thought I'd point it out if no one else has. It's one of the most important things I'd like to share with others, all of whom use Kodi as their media players (for various reasons).
