Emby for Kodi slow to connect when Kodi starts

Hi everyone,

 

I have a slight issue that I've been troubleshooting for a few days now that I wanted to bring to the wider audience.

I have a Windows 10 setup with Emby 4.3.1.0 and Kodi 18.6 both installed locally.

 

After starting Kodi, I initially noticed it took ~20 seconds for Emby for Kodi to connect.

This was way too slow as I was not able to play shows during this time due to it not being connected yet.

 

From log analysis I saw immediately that it was an embarrassingly large number of unnecessary plugins that were taking a number of seconds each to start.

I have uninstalled almost all of these as they just simply aren't needed and were left over from previous Kodi experimenting!

From this I have reduced the connect time down to about 6 seconds! I still feel I can do better though.

 

My current problem is I have a message in my Kodi log that I can't figure out. It seems to take about 3 seconds to run/log:

Anybody know what this is? Why I am trying to resolve a URL called http://folder.jpg?

Maybe its something basic but it looks strange to me.

 

Full Kodi.log will be attached also for full reference.

Any help is much appreciated.

yeah I'm having the same in my kodi logs, but never made a headache about it. Guess it is some internal quirk you don't need to worry about, but maybe @@sualfred can confirm. Or @@Angelblue05 can explain when she gets back here somewhen.

 

But honestly I think you can be happy with 6 seconds :-)

 

best regards

I can see this too running on LibreELEC.

 

My assumption was it is something in the addon or perhaps in the Emby dbase metadata (e.g. scraped from a rogue nfo) perhaps.

 

Not sure how to debug this though.
