Quasar Kodi 17 Estuary Featured Image

Quasar is capable of integrating with Kodi library. By enabling library integration Quasar 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 Quasar with the library using Kodi 17 Krypton or greater.

IMPORTANT: Quasar is retired and is not compatible with Kodi 19 and above. Please use Elementum.

Now restart Kodi. Quasar will automatically create 2 folders called Movies and Shows on the path specified earlier to store library files. These files are very small and they contain instructions for the addon, these are not media files.
