If I haven’t said it before I will say it again “I Love Kodi“. I’ve been using Kodi for a long time, can’t even remember the first version (was called XBMC back then).
I then wanted to try running Kodi on my phone and tablet, so downloaded the Android version (Not on playstore yet 🙁 ), setup the advancedsettings.xml for database sharing, and everything worked, except it couldn’t find any of the files to play.
Then I started messing around with the Path substitution settings and voila, it’s working 🙂
<pathsubstitution> <substitute> <from>/storage/TvShows/</from> <to>smb://server/tvshows/</to> </substitute> <substitute> <from>/storage/Movies/</from> <to>smb://server/movies/</to> </substitute> </pathsubstitution>
