Emby for Kodi: Are Emby Playlists supported?

Recommended Posts

Should Emby Playlists sync to Emby For Kodi?

They're not appearing on my Odroid N2+/CoreELEC/Kodi 18.7 box. but different threads here seem to say different things, either:

  1. No. They're not supported.
  2. Yes. With these menu options/button presses (which are no longer valid)
  3. No mention at all, which suggests it might be working?

All the threads are 2+ years old however, so has the support been improved in the meantime, and if so, what do I need to do to show them in Kodi?

They don't appear as Kodi playlists in the usual sense, but you can view/play them from Video Add-ons >> Emby >> Playlists

As far as I'm aware you can't edit them within Kodi.

Using your suggestion I can add them to the "My Media" menu, as if they were syncing normally.

  1. Embuary Settings > Window configuration:Home and hubs.
  2. Select "Edit menu configuration". Press + to add a menu. Select edit (pencil icon)
  3. Then select: Add-on > Video Add-on > Emby > Playlists > Create menu item to here.

One major bug is that the items in the playlists are reordered alphabetically. Rather defeats the point of a playlist....

I'm looking into a way round this.

 

Edit: looks like this was an issue in 2018, still a problem now.

It appears the added playlists are treated as folders, so their default ordering is "alphabetical", which destroys the set order of the playlist.

There doesn't appear to be a way round this.

Seeing as this has been an issue for 2 years, what are the chances of a fix?

We'll take a look at it. Thanks for reporting.
