PlexKodiConnect (PKC)

Combine the best frontend media player Kodi with the best multimedia backend server Plex

PKC synchronizes your media from your Plex server to the native Kodi database. Hence:

  • Use virtually any other Kodi add-on
  • Use any Kodi skin, completely customize Kodi's look
  • Browse your media very fluently (cached artwork)
  • Automatically get additional artwork (more than Plex offers)
  • Use Plex features with a Kodi interface

Have a look at some screenshots to see what's possible.

Update Your PKC Repo to Receive Updates!

Unfortunately, the PKC Kodi repository had to move because it stopped working (thanks If you installed PKC before December 15, 2017, you need to MANUALLY update the repo once.


Download and Installation

Using the Kodi file manager, add as a new Kodi Web server directory (HTTPS) source, then install the PlexKodiConnect repository from this new source "from ZIP file". See the github wiki installation manual for a detailed guide. Kodi will update PKC automatically.


Use at your own risk! This plugin assumes that you manage all your videos with Plex (and none with Kodi). You might lose data already stored in the Kodi video and music databases as this plugin directly changes them. Don't worry if you want Plex to manage all your media (like you should ;-)).

Some people argue that PKC is 'hacky' because of the way it directly accesses the Kodi database. See here for a more thorough discussion.

PKC Features

  • Plex Companion: fling Plex media (or anything else) from other Plex devices to PlexKodiConnect
  • Automatically sync Plex playlists to Kodi playlists and vice-versa
  • Plex Transcoding
  • Automatically download more artwork from, just like the Kodi addon Artwork Downloader
  • Automatically group movies into movie sets
