Elementum is able to integrate with Kodi’s library. Using the library is a great way to keep all your favorite shows and movies organized on your device. When enabling library integration, Elementum periodically checks for new episodes of the shows in your library.
In this tutorial we are going to integrate Elementum with the library. If you need help installing Elementum please read How to install Elementum on Kodi before continuing.
Creating a folder for the library
First we need to create a folder to store the library files, if you’ve been following our tutorial you should already have an elementum folder created, use it to create a library sub-folder in it. We’ll use C:\elementum\library\ for demonstration purposes.
Now restart Kodi. Elementum will automatically create 2 sub-folders called Movies and Shows inside your library folder. The files stored in these folders are small .strm files that contain instructions for the addon, they are not video files.
Linking Elementum folders to the library
Let’s link the Shows folder to the library.
The TV Shows tab on the Home Screen will display all the shows you add to your library. Repeat the process to link the Movies folder with the library.
Adding items to the library using Elementum
Now let’s add some items to the library, in this example we’ll be adding TV shows but the process is the same for movies.
Elementum will periodically check for new episodes and automatically update the library. To manually re-scan library folders open the Context Menu on Elementum and select Settings > Advanced tab > Update library.
You can access your Trakt account and synchronize your collection with the library using Elementum, please read How to use Trakt with Elementum for more information. If you want to use subtitles with please read How to enable automatic subtitles on Kodi.
