Imports Music to Kodi Library

Here are the steps you need to follow to import music to Kodi library:

Open Kodi and go to the home screen of the application. On the right you will see the main menu, which includes different categories. You must click on Music.

If you haven’t imported anything yet, a message will be displayed saying that the library is empty. Click on the option to Enter Files Section. Otherwise, click on Files.


Click on Add music.


A window will open with the title: Add music source. Click Browse on the right side of the window.


A new window will open in which you will have to find the directory where you have the music collection you want to add. Your entire library should be in a single directory, although it may have different subdirectories. In this way, all subdirectories will be automatically registered with Kodi. 


When you find the directory, click OK.


You will return to the previous screen, where you must enter a name for this content source. You can enter “Music” plain or any other name. Then click OK to close the window.


You will be asked if you want to add the contents of this source to your collection. Click Yes to be able to view the files in this directory on Kodi. If the directory contains many files, it may take some time for them to be processed before they appear in Kodi.


Now go back to the Kodi music library. You will see the directory you just added.

Access the directory for playback of any file. You will also see the files sorted by genre, album or artist.


The process is much simpler the second time you do it. After importing music, you can try importing other file types. To do so, refer to these guides:
