Xbmc library not updating movies
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.
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.
In our case, we’re going to install My SQL on the same always-on home server that we store our movies and TV shows on—that way, any time the media is available to Kodi, so is the database.
If the file exists, it will be in the following location, based on your OS: Check in that folder. At the my SQL comment prompt, run: (we’re not using a database for music in our example, so only our video database is appearing in the list).
Wouldn’t it be nice, though, if your bedroom Kodi box knew what you watched in the living room, and vice-versa? The core of the synchronization magic we’re about to undertake is a My SQL database. It does require a little technical know-how, but we’re here to guide you every step of the way.
Would it be nice if you could stop watching a movie in the living room, and resume watching right where you left off somewhere else in the house? If you follow along closely, you shouldn’t have any problems.
A single file will allow you to put your backup in one place, while multiple files will scatter extra JPG and NFO files into your media folders—this is more reliable, but quite cluttered. Once your library is backed up, continue to the next step.
Once you’ve backed up the library (or opted to not worry about it and start from scratch), you’re ready to point Kodi to your My SQL server. Regardless of whether you’re editing the existing one or create a new one, cut and paste the following text into the file (note: if there are already some entries in your file, leave those in place and put these values within the correct sections): Edit the above text to reflect the IP address of your server on your LAN and the username/password of your My SQL database (in our example, it was just kodi/kodi).
