1 Sharing the library

This includes sharing video files, watched status, and some settings.

1.1 Local network

HOW-TO:Share libraries using UPnP
UPnP sharing between two Kodi devices is the easiest way to share a library. You can also share multiple libraries, one from each Kodi device, to all the other devices on the same network. UPnP also takes care of file sharing, so you do not need to do anything extra even if your files are added locally to Kodi.


MySQL
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.


Add-on:Emby for Kodi
Emby is a media management server that allows you to synchronize media libraries, watched status, and watch progress between compatible devices. Emby for Kodi allows Kodi to use Emby as a media management back-end. This add-on effectively replaces the Kodi built-in media database with Emby. Supported media includes movies, series, music and more.



PlexKodiConnect
Uses Plex server as a backend, integrating directly into the Kodi video database.


Add-on:PleXBMC
Allows Kodi to play media from a Plex Media Server on Windows, Linux, Raspberry Pi, OSX and more.
