Archive:Share libraries using UPnP

From Official Kodi Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

UPnP can be used for limited sharing of media files between two Kodi devices.

UPnP cannot share library functions and is a file only sharing protocol. If you are looking for full library functionality, UPnP is not the method to use.

For a more complex method of sharing using MySQL see MySQL

  1. For Kodi device A (the "server") go to:
    • Settings → Service Settings → UPnP/DLNA
  2. Enable the UPnP server (Share my libraries)

  3. For Kodi device B (the "client") you will need to (1) enable UPnP support in Settings → Service Settings → UPnP/DLNA and then (2) add device A as a media source: VideosFilesAdd Videos...Browse(scroll down to) UPnP Devices

  4. A shows up there. Open the share and then hit OK.
  5. Give the new video source from A a name.
  6. You should now be able to see everything as it is set up on A on B.
