Home icon grey.png   ▶ Syncing and sharing

1 Sharing the library

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


1.1 Local network

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.
Mezzmo
Kodi client with Mezzmo backend server for sharing video, music and photos. Background automatic Mezzmo / Kodi database sync process, resume point / play count sharing and much more. Fully integrates with Kodi but totally friendly with other addons, Kodi data and local Kodi file shares.
MySQL
If you have more than one Kodi device on your local network then you might want to synchronize them by sharing the Kodi library databases via the MySQL protocol. Using shared library databases allows you to store information for either your video or music library in a central database, so that multiple devices can access the same information at the same time.
When setting up shared Library databases either MySQL or MariaDB can be used as they both use the same MySQL protocol. Since many Linux distributions have dropped including MySQL and now instead now ship MariaDB, it is being more common to use MariaDB for shared Library databases.
PlexKodiConnect
Uses Plex server as a backend, integrating directly into the Kodi video database.
PleXBMC
Allows Kodi to play media from a Plex Media Server on Windows, Linux, Raspberry Pi, OSX and more.
UPnP
Kodi can be used as a UPnP Server that will stream its library contents to other players on the network, or it can be used as a UPnP Client that can receive music and video from a UPnP Server on the network.


1.2 Over the internet

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.
