Full Version: MediaBrowser giving invalid url error

I am trying to get MediaBrowser working. Note, I have it working with Windows Media Center but am trying to migrate (by and large) to Kodi (why wouldn't you? Smile )

I'm using the latest Kodi stable release and have enabled the MediaBrowser Add-On as well as confirming the url, port and login information. Note, I have MB and Kodi on the same machine with Windows 8.1 installed with the latest patches.

I enabled logging but seem to be getting inconsistent errors. But having said that, most seem to centre around accessing the url which at one stage the url being called was:

Certainly, I can browse to: http://localhost:8096/mediabrowser/web/dashboard.html and around the mediabrowser web interface.

Part of the log that seems relevant is:
