Emby(con) doesnt save the startup setting


Best Answer TeamB , 06 April 2020 - 04:57 PM

You can use both but you don't need to.

 

EmbyCon loads your media items as you browse then, a little like a web browser loads pages, all the data comes from the server as you are browsing your libraries.

 

E4K tries to sync all your media libraries locally into the Kodi  DB.

 

They both exist because different people wrote them at different times with different purposes in mind.

hello,

 

im using coreelec 9.2.1 on a odroid c2. there i installed emby and embycon from the beta repo. my problem is on BOTH odroids, when i restart the box, that everytime i get asked, if i wanna start with the "native paths" or as "addon (standard)", if i wann activate artwork cache, if i wanna sync empty episodes and so on....i chose, that emby should take the "addon" mode and the rest i chose "yes".

 

ok, all fine now. logging in into my embycon account, it starts syncing with the server and all is working fine. when i now restart, than the same questions show up again.

 

now i attached a logfile from kodi...there are some problems, but i dont know how to solve it.

 

 

 

any ideas?

 

 

 

regards

the messages you are seeing are form the "Emby for Kodi" (E4K) add-on, you also have EmbyCon installed, while they both will work together to stop your confusion as to which add-on you are using you should uninstall one of them that way you will know which add-on you are using and any errors or messages can be correctly attributed to that add-on.

Ohhh ok. I thought I need both at the same time.

So, why does 2 addons exist? What is the difference between both addons?

Which one should I prefer?

okey. i understand that.

 

im also using iptv on emby, but i could use it also direct in kodi. so i think it doesnt really matter if i use embycon or e4k.

ill give it a try. 

 

i could deactivate e4k and try embycon. after that i could deactivate embycon and than try emby for kodi. am i right with that?

 

 

//edit: i have to say, that my server pc is not very "strong". i think i cant use transcoding. does this matter?

 

(sry for my english...im from germany)

By default EmbyCon will try to direct stream your playback from the server, it will only transcode if you ask it to.

Here is the list for the server, I don't think there is a list per client though.
