Problem with Emby Addon under Kodi 18.9

Hello,

I use the emby addon under Kodi 18.9.

I noticed that when I use the emby addon the json rpc API doesn't work properly.

I noticed it while programming a widget for Openhab3.

and then I made a few Json calls, once with the normal Kodi database without Emby and once with.

Here are the results:

 

my Api Call 

 

http://192.168.0.166:8023/jsonrpc?request={"jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "Player.GetItem", "params": { "properties": ["title",  "season", "episode", "duration", "showtitle", "tvshowid", "thumbnail", "file", "fanart"], "playerid": 1 }, "id": "VideoGetItem"}

 

here the result with the EMBY- Addon Database :

 

{
"id": "VideoGetItem",
"jsonrpc": "2.0",
"result": {
"item": {
"episode": -1,
"fanart": "image://http%3a%2f%2f192.168.0.199%3a8096%2femby%2fItems%2f39530%2fImages%2fBackdrop%2f0%3fEnableImageEnhancers%3dTrue%26Tag%3db5dcf3acfdc83dd356e6231d3e886f78/",
"file": "http://192.168.0.199:8096/emby/Videos/39530/stream",
"label": "Godzilla II: King of the Monsters",
"season": -1,
"showtitle": "",
"thumbnail": "image://http%3a%2f%2f192.168.0.199%3a8096%2femby%2fItems%2f39530%2fImages%2fPrimary%2f0%3fEnableImageEnhancers%3dTrue%26Tag%3d7e043e2c5f462165c3c7cea04fe84b24/",
"title": "",
"tvshowid": -1,
"type": "unknown"
}
}
}

you see the item "type"

type : unknown

is "unknown", i tested it with episodes too, the same. 

 

here the result with the Kodi Original Database :

 

{
"id": "VideoGetItem",
"jsonrpc": "2.0",
"result": {
"item": {
"episode": -1,
"fanart": "image://https%3a%2f%2fimage.tmdb.org%2ft%2fp%2foriginal%2fjb6Ju38HmKX0bYHCmAxs8HyNeJ2.jpg/",
"file": "ftp://marc:aerowing@192.168.0.199:21/10TB_White/Filme/4K/Godzilla 2 King of the Monsters (2019) [4K] [HDR10+]/Godzilla 2 King of the Monsters (2019) [4K] [HDR10+].mkv",
"id": 126,
"label": "Godzilla II: King of the Monsters",
"season": -1,
"showtitle": "",
"thumbnail": "image://https%3a%2f%2fimage.tmdb.org%2ft%2fp%2foriginal%2fxVSfmpNmKs7pH7ejaGjQlN5dwRH.jpg/",
"title": "Godzilla II: King of the Monsters",
"tvshowid": -1,
"type": "movie"
}
}
}

 

 here is the "type" item = movie

 

I played around with it a little, and then not only the item "type" is missing but also "rating", "genre", "title","season", "episode".

(season,episode) by episodes, not movies.

 

Any Ideas whats here wrong?

I assume you are using emby for kodi plugin in 4.x version. Quite sure that this issue is related to some design flaws of the plugin.

You can give emby-next-gen (5.x) version a try. I should work there.
