Tested the new ones but widget playback has not been changed on my end.
And playback reporting on the server is also not working. Somtimes I see "started playback of XXX" and then it's stopped on the server within a sec without stopping it on Kodi. Sometimes it's nothing reporting at all.

Thanks for the feedback. From your log file I see the following:
  • You first played "12 Monkeys". There are only 600ms between start and stop. Playback seems to have happened 20 seconds earlier. mediaimporter.emby successfully reported playback start, one seek event and playback stopped to your Emby server. I have no idea why there is such a delay between the actual playback and the time mediaimporter.emby gets the callbacks from Kodi.
  • You then played "Pirates of the Caribbean - Am Ende der Welt". The pattern is the same as before with 10 seconds between actual playback and the time mediaimporter.emby gets the callbacks from Kodi.
  • There's an exception in mediaimporter.emby's player implementation which caused the whole player thread to crash. After that playback checkins didn't work anymore.

Please use the pre-installed media import repository to install / update the media importer add-ons from there. This way you should get all necessary dependencies.

ATTENTION: If you were running a previous test-build delete your MyVideosxXX.db.

Changelog
  • General
    • Support importing movie sets together with movies
    • Fix updating playback metadata on the media provider when having played a video from a widget

I've tested it again on my setup and apart from confirming (and fixing) the crash everything works perfectly fine here. Playback checkins show up immediately on the Emby server and playback metadata is updated on the Emby server when the video is played from a widget...

Started from scratch and now it's working. Weird.

Edit:
@Montellese 
Problem is back. It was working for movies. Then I've started the sync of my TV shows and went eating and let my PC idle for 30 minutes. When I was back I've started a episode playback from a widget -> no progress reporting to the server. Doesn't matter if playback of a movie/episode has been started from widgets or from library. 

But what I've noticed on the server is... that items were changed to inprogress after I tried a few other ones.

Example:
1. Movie#1
2. Stopped movie#1
3. Movie#2
3. Stopped movie#2
4. Movie#3
5. Stopped movie#3

-> Movie#1 got updated on the server and a message appeared "User has stopped Movie#1" but I saw no ongoing playback while I was watching it.

Ok.. it IS reporting to the server. After exactly 29-30s of a playback. No matter if starting from the beginning or resuming an item. If I interupt the playback before it's correctly reporting -> hicups and semi-async.

That matches what I saw in your original log file. The question is why it is taking so long for the playback callbacks to be executed. On my dev system it takes approximately half a second or less.

It was this fast after I just synced movies. The issue reappeared after I've added my TV shows (~6500 episodes). It is somehow related. Once I remove my TV show import -> issue gone

Is the import for TV shows running while you play your movies or did you finish importing TV shows and then started playing movies?


RE: Media importing and library integration (UPnP, Emby, Plex, ...) - sualfred - 2020-01-24

I waited until the import was done. Also restarted Kodi and waited for the sync.

OK thanks for the feedback. I think I know what the issue is. Right now when playback starts the add-on receives the player callbacks and it has to figure out if the item being played is an imported item or not. Right now there's no easy way to do this in the python API so the add-on has to retrieve ALL imported items and go through them to check if the one being played is imported and from which media provider. In my test library with a hundred or so movies and a few hundred episodes that's pretty fast. But @enen92 has already pointed out that it might be very slow. I guess this is what's causing the long delay in your setup.

I'll add some more methods to the python API to be able to speed up this process and will let you know once it's available for testing.

Sounds like an explanation. Wrote you in Slack if you need a test server with such an amount of library items.

I have access to Keith's server but it has far too many items in it. So one with a reasonably large library would be great.

sent you details on slack

I know the story but I will post his comment.

Hi,

after playing a bit around I totally love this way of integration in kodi. As workaround for music I had add the emby music library as dlna into kodi. 

Keep up the fantastic work. When you need something to test let me know. Before I was testing with angelblue05... 

I just installed it on my production system and absolutely love it. Thx.
