Sorry for the bother! I just found out that I used the wrong type:

If I use the Home Videos and Photos, then the library will be displayed as video files.

I I used Mixed Content, then the library will be displayed as plain folders, which is what I want.

Would it be possible to back port the skip intro feature from 7?

No, cause this will require major database and code modifications. Why not just using 7.X?

I can't offer any logs for these issue, but I'd like to know if anyone has experienced them:

I add a TV show with some seasons, and it shows up in the Emby and then Kodi libraries. I delete the folder containing the show, and it disappears in both. I bring back the show with a new season, and it shows up in Emby but not in Kodi, even after manually updating.

I decide to reset the database, and it gets stuck deleting the music library; no music was added.

I disable the addon, delete the database files and thumbnails directory, shut down Kodi, restart it, and enable the addon, which syncs to Emby. This time, the TV show appears.

I'm having bad performance with addon compared to watching from a web browser. 

Items take long time to play or is buffering from start but no issues watching directly off server using web browser

Some things I found out:

I've been using an Android media player that has no standby mode (it turns out when it receives electricity) and had set it up to run Kodi at startup because that time I was not using a server (Kodi scanned videos from different sources). I use power strips with a single master button, so when I press it to turn on the TV the media player and other devices are also turned on.

When the Emby addon for Kodi is used in that case, the addon might scan for sources that aren't needed (like .deleted folders left by Tiny Media Manager), fail to add newly added videos, and keep searching for the media server even though it is not available (because my PC is still turned off). I checked the Emby library from the server, there are no problems with the video library entries.

Given that, my simple solution is not to turn on the media player automatically. Turn it on only when I plan to watch something. By that time, my PC is already turned on and any video addition, modification, or deletion has already been done.

On more thing: I seem to be getting faster scanning, etc., with the beta version of the addon (all settings in default mode), but I've also experienced playback delays, around two times for the last week.

Is it possible to use extra fanart, doesnt seem to work for me, which works in Emby Player so naming and placement is fine?

Thx for any input

6.x versions is currently the latest stable version. I'll not add any features, only fixing confirmed bugs.

You can try 7.x versions and report issues or (limited) feature request. Also 7.x. is very close to be tagged as beta/stable.

Major changes will be added in 8.x version (which is not under development yet), but I keep a list of requests.

Here's another point: if you decide to, say, replace the files in the folder of a TV show, then Emby for Kodi might still show the old files in its library. If you refresh the entry or even update the library, the old files might still show up.

The fastest way to fix that is to shut down Kodi, then go to the server, move the TV show folder to a temporary one, run the Emby server configuration and scan the library files again, and see if the TV show disappears from the Kodi library.

Then reload Kodi and let the Emby addon sync with the server. The show should now disappear from the Kodi library.

Shut down Kodi, go back to the server, move the TV show folder back, scan the library again, and see if the show can be seen in the server library. Then reload Kodi, let the Emby addon sync with the server, and the TV show should show up once more in the Kodi library with the old files gone.

There are limitations in 6.X version in case you remove/move a complete folder. Emby server would only report the deleted/folder ID (not the content IDs) and folders are not synced in 6.x. It will be fixed in 7.x but not possible to backport. Major code changes was necessary to cover this case.
