Feature #196

Profile Switcher

Added by Peter over 2 years ago. Updated over 1 year ago.



More and more people are using different profiles on their Kodi setups.

Dealing with different profiles and different databases can get a bit

messy within Yatse, because the databases are often out of sync.

Having a profile switcher within Yatse would probably solve this issue

and would be a great addition to Yatse as well.

Well problem is that on profile selection screen Kodi disable web server so no way to log in remotely.

And the API for profiles is not present in all version I support and bugged in half of the ones where it's present.

And to be honest profiles are bugged and limited in Kodi so are not really that used ;)

The default kodi webinterface is able to switch profiles. Perhaps you could use that as a hack. :-)

You can already do this via custom commands easily. I created 2 commands "Profile kids" and "Profile parents". One click on this be of those and Kodi will switch instantly.
