I'm not sure i'm able to do and understand all this Smile
I have emby too, but i use the emby for kodi addon for it
Whats the difference then with this way?
From using Emby as a server the experience is basically the same except that Emby for Kodi is design to take over the Kodi library as a single source. You are not expected to add anything to your library from any other source, when using Emby for Kodi. At least that was the original design.
MediaImport is design for imports from multiple sources to coexist. Content aggreagtion is the main goal. So you could have content from your emby server, even multiple emby servers, youtube and  Netflix added to your library.

@Skank,

OK. When you do, remember to enable "Allow using Direct Play" under playback.

Media importing and library integration (UPnP, Emby, Plex, ...) - Supersilver - 2021-04-30

Just wondering if there is a way to add in an option to just import collections from Plex and be able to select specific collections?


RE: Media importing and library integration (UPnP, Emby, Plex, ...) - LongMan - 2021-04-30

Collections as a single stand alone option and not as a part of the movie import process. Is that correct?

I think we're both on the same thought yeah, essentially just import a specific collection rather than your whole library you think that's possible?

Is the latest version unavailable? link

Does the Plex API allows selection of individual collections?

OTOH the mediaimporters are more suited for bulk importation. This sounds like a situation where one would want to browse the Plex libraries and select items or collections to import. If that is what you are thinking then yes it is possible. However, it would probably be best to add a mediaImporter extension point to one of the existing Plex addons that already allows browsing of the library. Then add a Menu item "Add to Library" to add the item via the extension point.
A stub addon and instructions for modifying an existing addon is available.  In addition, as proof of concept, Tubed have been modified, rebranded Tubed MI, to demonstrate.

Hope that helps,
Cheers,
LongMan

@Montellese 

Test builds are gone. Could you update the links/rebuild them?

I'm sure it would be possible but it sounds very specific and not like something that most people would use. If anyone is willing to work on this I'd be happy to accept it into mediaimporter.plex but I don't have the time to work on it myself.

Perfect, thanks for letting me know it's possible Montellese. Might have to figure out how to do it myself haha

The builds have been re-posted.


RE: Media importing and library integration (UPnP, Emby, Plex, ...) - Montellese - 2021-05-13

I have uploaded new builds at https://github.com/Montellese/xbmc/wiki/Downloads. They are based on the latest Kodi v19.1 Matrix and include a fix for using media import with multiple separate profiles.


RE: Media importing and library integration (UPnP, Emby, Plex, ...) - Montellese - 2021-05-20

A few days ago I have uploaded new test builds at Downloads / Changelog which can greatly improve the performance of retrieving and passing media items from Python-based media importers to Kodi. For the performance improvements to become visible you also need to update the media importer add-on(s) to the latest version which I just released: For mediaimporter.emby the performance improvement is very noticeable. Unfortunately for mediaimporter.plex not so much because there the main issue is having to retrieve the metadata for every media item with a separate HTTP GET request which is slowing things down a lot. I'm looking into improving this as well. But you should still see a small performance improvement.
