Correct, I add & remove content only from the emby server & these changes propagate out to the other locations automatically via resilio sync.

All fully automated, & works like a charm!

I'm curious, is there a reason why you are manually syncing you devices. I don't see any benefit of a centralized server in your setup if you perform the sync via scripts.

If you use a script based sync procedure, Kodi's internal database is capable to deal it?

there are no scripts involved, i simply add the new content to the emby server & my sync software (resilio sync) synchronises the content to each location & requires no interaction.

Yes but i have multiple devices at each location, each accessing the content at that location from a central samba share. if i was to only rely on kodi's internal database i would loose 

all the benefits of a of a centralised database e.g. shared watched and unwatched status of media on all devices. - to stop watching a movie in one room then finish watching it in another room etc.

I used to do this with mysql but i find emby to be far more stable & as you know emby still utilises kodi's local database so it is multiples faster than mysql.

@quickmic so can this version work with 'up next' even though there's no native mode? Or is there some other way to get it to auto play the next episode of something now?

Also, with the current stable version of 4.x I've been having issues with it not syncing all new media, often weirdly skipping a new episode of one show but syncing a new episode of another, not specific to any given show etc, just randomly missing it when syncing. Which then means I have to do a complete 'update libraries'... Is this fixed in 5.0? Finally, regarding updating libraries, are you able to make it so it only updates missing things rather than having to re-sync everything again like it does currently?

Yes, the stock Kodi function.  Settings -> Player - > Play next video automatically

I've fixed one issue in TVShows sync in 4.1.21 and higher including 5.X. but I also got some bug reports about that matter after 4.1.21. Maybe it's not the only issue there. Random issues are hard to track without a specific test case.

Just to confirm, I should uninstall the old E4K addon and the install this one?

Yes, that's my test case at the moment. Regular update can work as well, just try it. Whatever your approach is , a DB wipe is required.

@quickmic,thanks for your efforts so far, it nice to see that this project is not dead, I have read through your posts, you said a rework of the artwork will also be re engineer, this particularly important especially for those watching remotely on a large media list the it takes quit a time for the artworks to populate, event when one scroll through the list. If its possible dont ask me how it works on Netflix and other app on Roku, the speed at which the artwork populate  are very fast  not evidence of waiting time etc. It will be nice if such concept if possible be incorporated in E4K.

Thanks for your efforts and supports of the addon

Mostly it's based on server upload bandwidth. ISPs consumer products are asymmetric. Download fast, upload slow. Usually this is the limiting factor.

New version is available:

https://kodi.emby.media/Public testing/next-gen-ALPHA-build384.zip

 

This version requires another full DB wipe!

 

Changes:

Multi selection for TV shows and Musicvideos added
"Cache all artwork" fixed, but not final (once triggered, it doesn't pause on video start or auto resume after Kodi restart)
Artwork piped threw webservice (this fixes issues on multipurpose devices (LAN & WAN))
Shutdown/Restart fixes
Kodi flag support added

hey

This version (maybe also the prior one) is not functional at all on Kodi 17 (Windows 10). Kodi quits with a blank error message (coming from windows, not Kodi) after some time.

(I wanted to make sure it runs okay on Kodi 17/Windows before I switch testing on Apple TV)

Thanks, actually I think I'll start Kodi 19 migration before I start bugfixing on Kodi 17.

There are just 2 main features pending till 5.0 has the same functionality as 4.X. I estimate Kodi 19 migration will be available in the next 2-4 weeks.

Before Kodi 19 migration, I've to check what's the best approach. I hate version queries in the code like

if <19 do this else do that.

It makes code ugly...

Flagging seems to work great with the new file names.  Thanks!  How do you use multiple version with this?  I don't see anywhere to choose which version to play?

Movie or episode? There should be a selection box if multi version is available on play. Have you wiped your DB?

My bad.  I forgot that step.  Just did that and now I do get the selection box.  Great work!  FYI - you're probably aware, but trailers still don't work.

I see there is an issue in the log, does it happen on every TV-Show episode or just on special selection (single episode)?

Have you wiped your DB? if not, please do so!

Apology for the false alert, after the rebuild of the DB everything is working fine.
