Introduction

This document reviews how to link archived movies to appear on the XBMC/Kodi interface

Applies to

This article is applicable for supported Media Players as listed here:

Pre-requisite

These instructions are optimized for XBMC/Kodi systems connecting to the following Media Servers / NAS systems:

  • LiivNAS Media NAS / Servers

Write down the LiivNAS system's "Server name" - which consists of the name "LiivNAS-" + "the system's 4 digit serial number."
Example: The server name of a LiivNAS system with serial number 1234 would be: LiivNAS-1234


Procedure

Part 1 - Linking to the main server / system

  • Starting from the main menu, go to VIDEOS > FILES



    • Choose FILES again, if shown



  • Click on ADD VIDEOS



  • A new popup will appear.  Choose BROWSE



  • A new side pop-up will appear from the left.  Scroll down to ADD NETWORK LOCATION...



  • Enter in the appropriate fields as shown, so that we can connect to the default server share:
    • 1. Server name: Enter LiivNAS-XXXX, where XXXX is the 4 digit serial number of the system. (Hint: This info should've been written down in the pre-requisite stage.)
    • 2. Shared folder: Movies
    • 3. Username: Owner
    • 4. Password: 123456 
  • Then, scroll down and choose OK.

  • Highlight this entry, then click RIGHT to choose OK.



  • We will return to the previous screen, with the info as shown.  Scroll down and choose OK.



  • Once done, we will be asked to "Set content" type.  Be sure to:
    • 1. Under "This directory contains" - choose MOVIES
    • 2. CHECK: Movies are in separate folders that match the movie title
    • 3. UNCHECK: Scan recursively
    • 4. UNCHECK: Selected folder contains a single video
    • 5. UNCHECK: Exclude path from library updates
  • Scroll down and choose OK towards the bottom.



  • A prompt showing "Do you want to refresh info for all..." appears - choose YES.



  • In a few moments, any archived movies will be integrated into the XBMC/Kodi interface, as shown below!
  • We can now browse for movies and sort by Title, Genre, Years, Actors, & more!
