Stream All The Sources is able to integrate with Kodi Media Center by using the library, but in order to get automatic updates of your TV shows you are going to need a account. In this tutorial we are going to use the SALTS Library Integration features to add TV shows and movies to the library through trakt lists.

This article is being updated, we’re sorry for the inconvenience. Please check back later.




Before we begin you need to install SALTS on Kodi and authorize your trakt account, SALTS uses the TV shows and movies on your trakt lists to update the library, read the previous parts of this tutorial if you need to and come back here when you are ready.


1. First we must make sure that Kodi is showing hidden files. Go to the Home Screen and select “System”. System option in kodi home screen
2. Then “Appearance”. Appearance option in kodi settings
3. Click on the “File lists” tab and activate “Show hidden files and directories”.show hidden files and directories setting for kodi file explorer
4. Go back to the Home Screen. We are going to add the SALTS folder to the library. Select “Video” > “Files”. video files option in kodi home screen
5. Now “Files”. video files option on Kodi
6. Click on “Add Videos…”. add video file to Kodi's library
7. Open the file explorer by pressing “Browse”. adding video source to kodi library
8. Find the SALTS folder, the location depends on the OS you are using.

  • Windows: C:\Users\{user_name}\AppData\Roaming\Kodi\userdata\addon_data\\TVShows
  • Android:{storage}/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/
  • Linux: ~/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/
  • iOS: /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/Kodi/userdata/addon_data/
  • Mac: /Users/{user_name}/Library/Application Support/Kodi/userdata/addon_data/
  • OpenELEC: /storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/

9. Check that all the data is correct before pressing OK. (If you are adding movies, the name of the folder will be Movies instead of TVShows). adding TV shows from SALTS to Kodi library
10. Set the content type of the folder to TV Shows. Choose “(TV Shows)” as directory content and “The TVDB” as scraper. Press “Ok” to confirm. Set folder content to tv shows
11. Go back to the Home Screen, Now you’ll see a new section called “TV Shows”.tv shows section on home screen


Repeat the process to enable the movies section. Keep in mind that you need to athorize trakt to automatically update the library when new episodes of your TV shows are released.
It’s important to use the “Subscribe” option in the Context Menu to add shows to your trakt list and therefore to your library. If you use the “Add to library” option you’ll not receive updates on that show.

I think a lot of people (myself included) assume that Library integration is the way to go when they first get into SALTS. Initially i thought it would be cool to have both my streaming and local network media all in one synchronized library. This, as far as i can tell, is the only real advantage you get from integrating SALTS and Kodi Library. You can’t Search for, or add new shows/movies, view schedules, view most popular, recommended and other filters directly from Kodi Library. you still have to start the… Read more »
