Clients

Clients connect your devices to your Jellyfin server and let you view your content on any supported device. You can find a list of clients below with their current development status.

Note: Many clients were direct forks of the latest available codebases from Emby, and some are not functional yet. If you interested in helping out, please see our contribution guide.

    • Select the Jellyfin add-on and choose install
  4. Within a few seconds you should be prompted for your server-details.
    • If a Jellyfin server is detected on your local network, it will displayed in the popup
    • If a Jellyfin server is not detected on your local network, select "Manually add server"
      • Enter the server name or IP address and the port number (default is 8096)
      • If using SSL and a reverse proxy, enter the full URL scheme in the "Host" field

    • Choose your preferences for each option
    • Select "Proceed" to configure libraries
    • Select the libraries you would like to keep synced with this device
  6. The first sync of the Jellyfin server to the local Kodi database may take some time depending on your device speed and library size
  7. Once the full sync is done, you can browse and play your media through Kodi, and syncs will be done periodically in the background

Note: It's recommended to install the Kodi Sync Queue plugin into the Jellyfin server as well

This will help keep your media libraries up to date without waiting for a periodic resync from Kodi.
