Databases
Kodi uses SQLite, an open source light-weight SQL database-engine, to store all its library related data (Music, Video, and Program databases). By default, the database files (*.db) are stored in The UserData Folder, specifically in userdata/Database.

In addition to indexing media files when activated by user-selected Content settings, Kodi also puts a video in its database if you change any OSD setting while watching it. Resume points are stored in this database as well. These entries are added to the database whether the affected video is part of the Video Library or not.
