custom music playlist
#1
Hello all

after a mammoth job of re-tagging all my music library, which of course changed the tags of my music and therefore invalidated all my custom music playlists. I was under the impression that the plugin to add music to a playlist was incorporated in one of the kodi releases. 

Anyhow since i had the original plugin zip file I installed it on my 18.4 version of KODI. It was called context.playlist.append.zip you can find the link on this thread 13752.

Finally i have coleted the above task and the proceeded to install emby on my freenas server and the emby plugin for kodi.
My music playlists are on my nas in a separate share in order not to develop duplications and kodi has the appropriate advancesettings entry to redirect kodi to look for playlists on the new shared drive.
 
All plays fine except of course for the playlists

when i start to build my new playlists, i am listening to a song and i right click on it and i get a context menu with the option of adding the song to an existing or new playlist. Fine 

this issue i have is when i build this playlist Kodi creates it in the c:\users\me\appdata\roaming\kodi\userdata\playlist\music.

Fair enough. Although |I believe that when savin the playlist the plugin should take into consideration  the advancesetting substitution path.

However the main problem i encountered, is that the source for the music has become emby and now the playlist shows

#EXTINF:0,Supertramp - Breakfast In America
http://127.0.0.1:57578/emby/Audio/13759/stream.mp3-------- This makes it difficult to manage a playlist
#EXTINF:0,The Rolling Stones - Let's Spend The Night Together
http://127.0.0.1:57578/emby/Audio/13772/stream.mp3-------- This makes it difficult to manage a playlist

It would like it to show location of the track which is my shared drive and file name

Since Emby is not up to snuff with their music playlist functionality, I was wondering if anybody could suggest and alternative solution. 

I am posting a similar post to the emby forum

Thank you for looking at this
