emby + kodi on xbox one problems

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I've Kodi with emby plugin on xbox one installed. It works ok till I want to play something... It doesnt work... There is no error or message. It 'hangs' for 20-30s and then nothing...

What can be the problem? I use playing over the addon (no native paths)...

I'm having this same issue, just trying to work out how to get the log off the xbox.

 

The initial sync works and loads the TV and Movies, however, if you click on any from the home screen, you just get a 20-30 second hanging and then it unlocks. If you go into a season and try to play an episode, you get the notification that the file cannot be found and may have been deleted. That is using the addon default paths.

 

If I change to native, it says the file paths are not correct, however they work perfectly on the PC and Mi Box, so I believe that is reporting incorrectly.

Having the same issue with Emby. Libraries get scanned into KODI and I can browse all movies, tv, and music but when I go to play any of them nothing happens except the system freezing for a minute then resuming after that. 

EmbyCon works fine and I can play the content. But I would like to use Emby plugin so I can have the libraries native in KODI. 

 

For the others here. To get KODI logs from your Xbox do the following;

In File manager Add source, browse and select home folder. 

It's in the root of the home folder. 

Plug in USB and copy file to usb.

 

I've attached the logs from both my server and kodi.

 

EDIT: Looks like similar issue to 

 

kodi.log embyserver_short.txt

Hi,

I have the same problem, it is failing because it tries to connect to 127.0.0.1, but there is no emby server on the Xbox One 😃

CCurlFile::Open failed with code 0 for http://127.0.0.1:57578/emby/kodi/tvshows/7975/7984/file.strm?KodiId=456&Name=T

More log here :

http://paste.kodi.tv/eyizagimaz

We can see that it has managed to connect to server successfully though

Emby.emby.core.connection_manager -> calling onSuccessfulConnection with connection mode 2 with server

But it doesn't use the address of the server when trying to get files.

On the other hand, EmbyCon works as expected

It is not trying to access the emby server, it is trying to access its own built in playback http services that it uses to process the plugin playback actions.

Unfortunately on some platforms this does not work and due to security restrictions on those platforms may never work.

Thanks for the answer ! Could you specify that the plugin doesn't work on Xbox One in the wiki then ? It will avoid some headaches when trying to make it work ;)

And if you have more informations on these security restriction on Xbox One i'm curious too !

All the Kodi add-ons (all three) are user community developed. You can see the current status of all 3 add-ons here:

https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/86968-current-status-of-kodi-add-ons/

There was mention of the Emby Team contributing to the Emby for Kodi add-on but I have not seen anything official yet. I do not know what their plans are in that regard apart from a few  comments posted in a few threads:

https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/87315-playback-problems-emby-for-kodi-kodi-187/page/2/&tab=comments#comment-896828

I think you can request updates to the Wiki on the wiki, to be honest I dont know what wiki you are referring to as I dont use the Emby for Kodi add-on, I maintain the EmbyCon add-on but know how most of the add-ons work so help where I can.

The XBox One system is very locked down, my assumption is that the Xbox One environment will not let apps create listening services on any port, usually you can create listening ports on any number above 1024 on most systems but XBox One must be more locked down and does not allow it. I could be wrong, it might be something else but that is my guess.

We are maintaining the Emby for Kodi add-on, and yes, looking into problems as they are reported.

Should I update the addons status page with official support status for the Emby for Kodi addon?
