Xbmc tv show library not updating
You’ll need to perform this step on every machine running Kodi, but we recommend setting it up on one machine first—probably the same machine you backed up your library from, if you chose to do so. This basic setup should get your video and music libraries synced, but you can also sync other portions of Kodi, as well as sync multiple profiles with the name tag if you use them.
In order to point Kodi to My SQL, we need to edit Kodi’s file. Once your file is ready to go, open Kodi on that machine.
If you want to back up your current library, you can do so from within Kodi.
Only do this from one machine—choose the machine with the most up to date libraries. (If you don’t see these options, make sure your menus are set to “Advanced” or “Expert” in Kodi.) You can export your library as a single file or as separate files.
At the prompt, type the following commands, pressing Enter after each one, to create a user on the database server: The first portion of the first command creates the user, the second portion creates the password.
While identical login/passwords are generally a huge security no-no in this case we’re comfortable using a matching pair for the sake of simplicity.
By default, if you have multiple Kodi machines, they won’t recognize each other.
Episodes you watched on one TV won’t show as “watched” on another.
From that point forward, when Kodi checks to see if you’ve seen a specific TV show episode or movie, paused media, or set a bookmark, it won’t just be answering for the specific media center you’re standing in front of, but for all media centers in the house.
For this project, you’ll need the following: You can install the My SQL server on any computer that will be consistently on while you’re using the media centers.
