croneter/PlexKodiConnect Make Plex Channels also available on Kodi 4
croneter/PlexKodiConnect Kodi Library Export -1 >Couple of months ago I was able to export library in seperate nfo files, today I reinstalled Kodi and PKC with latest updates and it doesn't export anything. There is a progress bar as it is working but when it finishes there are no exported files. I tried exporting without PKC and it works. What happened? Am I missing something or it is not possible anymore? P.S. Fanarts and posters are exported, but there are no nfo files.
croneter/PlexKodiConnect Solution for subtitles marked as unknown 7 >It seems Emby has already fixed this issue during this (MediaBrowser/plugin.video.emby#70) quite large PR. Maybe some of their code could be ported over to PKC...
croneter/PlexKodiConnect Direct play from gdrive addon paths. For Plex Cloud users with gdrive. 1 I would like to request a new feature for people using plex cloud with google drive. It will work the same as Direct play from network paths feature But instead it will direct play using the gdrive addon instead of plex cloud server. The google drive addon being used is located here... http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=177557 I use the testing version. For the most part it is stable enough for daily use but also features the latest features. I have done some looking in to the logs to see what url is played when using PlexKodiConnect with a gdrive plex cloud server. This is the url I got... `https://serverid.ric.plex.services:443/services/clouddrive/google/media/google:0B5myDjLOM51Xd0Y3cFpza3I3M1U?X-Plex-Platform=Windows&X-Plex-Client-Platform=Windows&Connection=keep-alive&X-Plex-Device-Name=Kodi+%28HTPC%29&X-Plex-Provides=client%2Ccontroller%2Cplayer&X-Plex-Token=****-Plex-Client-Identifier=****&Accept=%2A%2F%2A&X-Plex-Device=PlexKodiConnect&X-Plex-Product=PlexKodiConnect&Content-Type=application%2Fx-www-form-urlencoded&X-Plex-Version=1.5.12 itemid: 13736` And here is a sample .strm file created by the gdrive addon for the same file... For gdrive addon testing version `plugin://plugin.video.gdrive-testing/?mode=video&username=Rick7C2&filename=0B5myDjLOM51Xd0Y3cFpza3I3M1U` For gdrive addon stable version `plugin://plugin.video.gdrive/?mode=video&username=Rick7C2&filename=0B5myDjLOM51Xd0Y3cFpza3I3M1U` Where Rick7C2 is the username setup in my gdrive addon and "0B5myDjLOM51Xd0Y3cFpza3I3M1U" is the id number for the file located on google drive. Would it be possible to to a new option in the settings to direct play for the gdrive addon instead of going through the plex server? The options needed would be... GDrive addon username? With textbox. Gdrive addon testing version? Tick box to work with testing version. The dev of the gdrive addon also has addons for OneDrive might work the same as his gdrive addon here.. http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=208131 I know the gdrive addon by itself lets you choose what transcode by google drive you want to use. But I have been running into issues with video files that have multiple audio tracks like commentary tracks that sometimes google drives transcodeing uses and there is no option to change it. Using this with Plex Cloud will allow me to direct play from google drive with the abiity to change audio track in kodi. Or use a transcode from plex cloud that will allow me to change audio track aswell.
croneter/PlexKodiConnect Indicate several versions of a media file visually 4 >Is there the possibility to display an indicator on the poster art to let you know that there is more than one version available? Native Plex apps show a badge with a number in it.
croneter/PlexKodiConnect New context menu entry for alternative players -1 >Hi there, Thanks for the awesome plugin. I was able to make mx player work as an external player because of this plugin. It has been a great addition to my kodi setup however would it be possible for you to add an option to make plexkodiconnect as the default player and then it launches mx player(or any other player kinda like what the playercorefactory.xml does) as the default player? You may be wondering why I am using mx player. That is because it plays my anime media better compared to running the in built player. > Thank you! An alternative would be to add "Start Playback using PMS" on the other most Context Menu instead of me having to keep going to plex options to be able to launch it.
croneter/PlexKodiConnect New video node: browse by folder 0 >Is there any way to toggle folder filtering for home videos. I am using it to watch family camera footage but those tend to be great in numbers. Currenly they all show flat as video files and its really hard to navigate and find what you want there. I already have the organized in folders, but I dont see an option to browse with folders in the addon. The native plex client for fire tv allows folders.
croneter/PlexKodiConnect Change subtitles when casting 2 >I use PKC to cast from Plex App to Kodi, but when media has subtitles I'm not able to change them from the Plex App. > As play, pause etc works, I thought choosing subtitles and audio would too, but it doesn't.
croneter/PlexKodiConnect Offline sync 0 >Would it be possible to add the offline sync like the android clients? My use case would be that I sync all my favorite movies/series at home and then take my raspberry with me on Holliday and plug it in the TV in the hotel. Or when camping in my own tv. > It would also be possible to sync over a slow Hotel wifi and play when the episode is synced. So no buffer problems.
croneter/PlexKodiConnect Change functionality of Kodi's "Refresh" button for an item 1
croneter/PlexKodiConnect Solution to let PKC ignore watched status for PseudoTV and/or Tract 0 >Long story short, I use Trakt to track my watched status of my libraries, since it remembers whenever I install a new version of Kodi (for example). >Since I sometimes use Plex on my iPad to stream things, and Kodi at home, I use the Trakt plugins for each platform to record my watched status. >However, PseudoTV Live is just a kind of background "browsing" plugin I use, so I don't want to update my Trakt status while watching things, because of the nature of the plugin -- it acts as a kind of "live TV" browsing, so you might switch a channel to the middle of an episode. >PseudoTV Live has a setting to disable the Trakt plugin tracking, which is fine... that's what I want. However, due to PlexKodiConnect marking the episode as watched and then passing it to my Plex server, the Plex Trakt plugin then updates the watched status, which is wrong. Also see https://github.com/croneter/PlexKodiConnect/issues/134
croneter/PlexKodiConnect Several path substitution patterns 1 >It would be nice to expand current path substitution feature to have list of substitution patterns per plex library. >My Plex libraries uses to have several paths to, potentially, several disks. With the current feature I am forced to set up links behind a common folder to all the sources in a library. This has a performance hit when the sources are hosted in different machines.
croneter/PlexKodiConnect Ability to set buffer when transcoding 0 >I end up in places with quite variable internet fluctuating from 500kbps to 8mbps from minute to minute (yay hotel WiFi) so it would be really handy to have a "buffer X minutes" during playback. >As I understand it when Plex is transcoding it will do X amount at 100% cpu then back off and encode at a lower percentage once it has enough, this is controllable via the server options. >However it is up to the client to make the requests for chunks of the transcoded files from the server which from my estimates are somewhere around 30-60 seconds worth so even if I tell the server to encode 10mins full tilt this doesn't relate to 10 minutes client side. As you can imagine watching a 2 or 3 mbps stream with variable bandwidth involves a lot of stopping and starting which could be avoided (mostly) with a decent buffer, unfortunately the speeds aren't quite enough for reliable direct play as that would sort this out! > Ideally I would like to set this via the Kodi cache setting (in advancedsettings.xml), or from an option within PKC where I can set a value for how many seconds/minutes to cache.
croneter/PlexKodiConnect Selective Library Sync 4 >My Plex account has several libraries accessible to it from a single server, (Home Videos, Kids Movies etc), It would be really cool if in the configuration (Or at setup) I could specify/select which libraries to sync to different kodi boxes rather than having to have multiple accounts /users for specific libraries.
croneter/PlexKodiConnect Way to keep Kodi database records NOT associated with Plex 1 Currently, if one resets the Kodi database via PKC settings -> Advanced -> Reset, the entire Kodi database gets wiped. This functionality would try to only delete Plex records, leaving other records intact.
croneter/PlexKodiConnect Alexa / Amazon echo support 5 The alexa plex skill is unable to find PKC players. When you ask her: 'Alexa, ask plex to change my player' she does not list PKC as an available player. The plex developers have already been asked what's needed to support this: https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/257193/how-to-implement-alexa-for-other-plex-clients

croneter/PlexKodiConnect Playstate Updates for everyone Could you please open an issue on Github for this? Really should work already!! about 1 month ago
croneter/PlexKodiConnect Can PKC use Kodi .nfo files? Short answer: no. PKC takes Plex metadata and Plex metadata only. Manage your metadata once on the PMS and forget about it about 1 month ago
croneter/PlexKodiConnect Add 'Set Filter' setting => Plex Collection is Kodi Set or Tag You are proposing a technical solution already. Problem is, I do not yet understand what you are trying to do or to achieve ultimately. Could you shed some light on your "real" motivation, why you would want to do this? about 1 month ago

croneter/PlexKodiConnect Way to keep Kodi database records NOT associated with Plex This would NOT work for e.g. Kodi tags/genres/etc. for a certain movie as this information is always associated with a certain movie and would thus have to be deleted about 2 months ago
croneter/PlexKodiConnect Ability to set buffer when transcoding advancedsettings.xml does not change the current behaviour and still only buffers the next section from the server. about 2 months ago
