In Emby Server you can tag 3 kind of videos as favorite.

TV Shows

TV Episodes

Movies

In Kodi you can create smart playlists to find these. Using Tag is Favorite Movies or Tag is Favorite TVshows works.

However I don't see a Tag for Favorite TVepisodes. I can't put them in a playlist.

I don't know if it's a problem on Emby Server side or Kodi/Emby Addon.

Does the server correctly add tags to favorite episodes?

In Emby Next Gen, you have the autocreated node for Favorite Episodes already:

FAVORITE EPISODES NODE

<?xml version="1.0"?>

-<node type="folder" order="2">

<icon>\resources\DefaultFavourites.png</icon>

<label>Favorite Episodes</label>

<match>all</match>

<content>episodes</content>

<path>plugin://plugin.video.emby-next-gen/?mode=browse&type=Episode&folder=FavEpisodes</path>

</node>

 

if you compare it to the node created for tvshows by emby next gen:

 

FAVORITE TV SHOWS

<?xml version="1.0"?>

-<node type="filter" order="1">

<icon>\resources\DefaultFavourites.png</icon>

<label>Favorite Shows</label>

<match>all</match>

<content>tvshows</content>


-<rule operator="is" field="tag">

<value>Favorite tvshows</value>

</rule>

<order direction="ascending">sorttitle</order>

</node>

 

The favorite episodes one is plugin dependant (because of the path used) and the tvshows one is created using tag, so this is what you are experiencing, and the answer is that it originates on how the addon handles it and not specifically emby-server, because it doesnt use the tag system for favorite episodes therefore cant be used to create playlists within kodi.

I'm using the old Emby addon in Kodi 18.

Yes I do see and can use prepared Fav Episodes and Fav Shows nodes created by Emby addon.

The reason I wanted to create my own playlists is the sort order. First, in what order is the Fav Episodes node? While open you can't change the sort order.

I want to use these playlists as widgets with sort set as Date Added.

I was already able to do it for Fav Shows.

I still don't understand why they can't add tags to episodes.

What is the sort order of Fav Episodes and can I change it?

There is no possibility of sort order customization there because is handled directly by plugin path, so no customization there for Kodi.

About the reason why, well am sure @quickmiccan help you there.

Since I was able to do it with TV Shows and was able to set the sort order, it would be great to have more control over Favorite Episodes. Feature Request!

You mean 4.x version? Is there a reason why?

I tested the function in next gen and sorting option is working fine. At least in my internal testversion. I haven't check with latest stable, but I assume it's also ok.

I have an Amlogic S912 and CoreELEC says they will not support it for Kodi 19. So I will be stock with Kodi 18.

Should I Install "Emby For Kodi Next Gen"? Will it work with Kodi 18?

Yes, Kodi 18 and 19 is supported. Be aware, upgrade will require a complete Kodi content resync.

If you use custom skin, some node updates are also required.

Probably take a backup from current installation, so you can rollback.
