Introduction

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.

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


MySQL Protocol & MariaDB

When setting up shared Library databases either MySQL or Maria DB 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.
