Specto is an addon packed with useful features including library integration. By enabling library integration, Specto will periodically check for new episodes of the shows in your library. It’s a great way to keep your favorite movies and TV shows organized on Kodi.  In this tutorial we are going to integrate Specto with the library using Kodi 17 and up.

Filmkodi server is down and Specto is discontinued. If you are looking for an alternative to Specto try:
Fantastic: a clone of Covenant with all the same features.
Elysium: forked from Exodus with very nice features.
Death Streams: official fork of SALTS (Stream All The Sources).
Bubbles: addon with lots of features, optimized for premium accounts.
Not Sure: movies, tv shows, live sports, anime and more.
Quasar: if you can use torrents you should check out this addon.

Hi can anyone tell me how to get Specto to include specials when adding a series?


Hi there. I was able to integrate my TV shows from Specto into the TV shows section, however when I did the same thing for Movies, it seems like it’s trying to do it but finishes without putting anything in the Movies section. What am I doing wrong?


I am having an issue when adding Shameless US version to my library. It will only add the UK version. Is there a way to fix this? Thank you.

Hey, great guide!

how could i do it with Exodus?


Hi, Exodus doesn’t support library integration but you can use trakt instead, read our guide how to use exodus with trakt



How can I change the Specto library folder to an external HDD? In the Jarvis version I was able to browse to other folders outside .kodi/userdata. However, in the krypton version I don’t seem to be able to.

How do I delete a show, or a movie from the Library that was integrated with Specto?


Hi, go to your library and highlight the item you want to remove, open the Context Menu and select Manage.. > Remove from library.


On Raspberry Pi, pressing ‘C’ for context menu does give a “manage” option, only provides 3 options; Information, Mark as watched, Mark as unwatched. Selecting “Mark as watched” seems to delete this from the TV Shows menu but the shows are still in the library folder????


can this be done for a full folder ie most popular or people watching instead of single picking? thanks
