    Couple of minor things I noticed, the indicators such as percentage played do not appear when using on deck widget, and recently added widget does not get populated with any recently added shows. I am using Titan skin on Shield TV. I installed V2 beta last night and so far seems stable enough using add on default settings more or less.
    Edit: Also does not resume playback from on deck, nor does it show progress indicators. When reverting to previous stable version, playback indicator, resume etc all work as intended.

    So, maybe this is a dumb question... but PlexKodiConnect has been so B@D@SS I don't want to risk messing anything up!

    Haven't had any problems with a large, regular music library. Will everything still work with a Plex "Premium Music Library?"
    https://support.plex.tv/articles/204892678-creating-a-premium-music-library/

    It says "premium," so you've gotta try it out, huh?

    There's a note on the above-linked Plex support page, about having a premium library side-by-side with an existing regular library. So, I was thinking of testing by creating a premium library side-by-side with my existing music library ... would this (temporary) dual music library mess things up with PKC?

    No worries. PKC will remain B@D@SS, no need to test

    First post: "Plex Music when using Addon paths instead of Native Direct Paths: Kodi tries to scan every(!) single Plex song on startup. This leads to errors in the Kodi log file and potentially even crashes.". Did you check this?

    Hi,
    I come back with my problem of mixed TV SHOW with ANIMES using widgets episodes. I use video nodes to split these sources.
    My setup is shield tv android with plexkodiconnect and nas synology plex server.
    I change my skin to go with TITAN skin with the hope of using smart widgets in order to not have a “In progress episodes” been mixed between my 2 sources TV SHOW and ANIMES.
    But I found nothing in widgets selection which allow to show “in progress episodes” by source. All episodes stay mixed on widgets.
    I try to ask on the titan skin thread but the only answer received is to use smart playlist witch is incompatible with our plexkodiconnect setup.
    Is someone using plexkodiconnect is able to use widget by source using titan skin in order to only have “In progress episodes”widgets by source ?
    Thanks for your help.
    regards

    PKC works with Kodi's Smart Playlists. I used it all the time.

    Found the link don't worry.

    Plex Companion isn't working for me with 2.0.2.

    Can't see the device in the Plex app. Odroid C2 running Krypton 17.5.

    You mean you don't see the player in the webapp?
    For me it's also not showing up in the webapp, but in the ios plex.app I see the PKC players, and I can cast to them (music isn't working, but movies and series are)

    I have seen this behaviour for some time now. Sometimes the PKC players show up in the webapp, sometimes not.
    It looks like if they show up after a reboot, but disappear after some time.
    This only happens with the plex webapp, as my iPhone, and my wifes iPhone always show the PKC players and are always able to cast to them without problem. (Again, only video, audio is not working but I cant be bothered enough to look into that as my receivers support airplay and I simply use that)

    @croneter, just out of curiosity, does using PKC mean that Kodi will then handle local user accounts, or would this still be left to PMS with Plex Home? I didn't see anything in the OP or in a quick thread search that answers my question (though I may have missed it somewhere in the 163 pages...).

    It takes a long time for my kodi to update when I mark something as watched or unwatched, like 5 mins. Is that normal?

  • SPROCKETSITESPROCKETSITE Posts: 32Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    Just wanted to say a big thanks to Croneter for this add-on.

    Finally summoned the courage to ditch the old setup and create a fresh install with PKC and the Titan skin. Having used Plex/Kodi for the past 5 or so years I thought I was past being astounded by it, but this combination rendered me speechless. I'm only sorry I didn't make the switch sooner. My loss.
