If you have more than one Kodi device on your local network then you might want to synchronize them using a MySQL library. Using a MySQL library allows you to store information about your whole video library in a central database, so that multiple devices can access the same information at the same time.
This gives you the ability to do things like:
- Share watched and unwatched status for your media on all devices
- Stop watching a movie or TV show in one room then finish watching it in another room automatically
- Only one library to maintain for all devices
