Using a dedicated server on your media computer to organize your media may be preferable to allowing Kodi or a MySQL database do it. The content is accessed by using a remote client. Kodi can be an Emby client by using the Emby for Kodi add-on. I think this add-on is compatible with all skins, but some skins are better designed to work with the add-on.

Emby for Kodi works well with DSPlayer but requires path substitution is used for all sources. This is described in the set-up guide.

So, Emby/Plex are server/client applications, while Kodi is best described as a standalone media frontend/server.
I've now tried with only installing Emby as a skin in Kodi just like any other skin, and it is working fine with DSPlayer, so no need for installing any Emby ServerSmile I'm using Ember Media Manager to manage my movies.

There is no such thing as a emby skin (yet) there is only the emby for kodi addon which will replace your kodi database with one that syncs to the emby server application....using this method any kodi skin is compatible with the addon ( which is why i think it is superior to plex and mysql)

But two very popular kodi skins (titan and a arctic zephyr mod) are developed by emby users to take better advantage of embys features and so the betas of these skins are available in the emby addon repository
That makes sense. Thanks for the explanation. I still don't see what I gives me more than using the Titan Skin + Kodi and MySQL database sync and Ember Media Manager. Perhaps it is streaming to mobile devices I get extra.
