Force a Refresh of an Emby Library in Kodi

One of my regular annoyances with my Kodi + Emby set up is that I can never seem to refresh the library when I need to.

This is annoying when i.e. getting content to watch in the minute just before dinner is ready, before realising it's just not working, and I can't pick up the new content.

However, tonight, I found the answer to reliably force a refresh of the library:

  • Go to Add-Ons in Kodi
  • Select Emby
  • Select Manage Libraries
  • Select Update Libraries
  • Select the library to update
  • Click OK
  • The library will shortly update!

Note that this was tested with Emby for Kodi v4.0.5.
