    • Kodi does not transcode and stream media like plex. At least not yet.... 8-) Guest • Sep 2015 • 38 agrees and 14 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Kodi is a media center client while Plex is a media center server. Plex is used to share content, Kodi is used to view content. Guest • Jul 2017 • 32 agrees and 12 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • kodi is not a media server, it's a media viewer not designed to share content Guest • Nov 2017 • 19 agrees and 13 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • As mentioned, Kodi doesn't really provide a server platform; you can do this with the experimental MySQL functionality, but it's hacky at the moment. Plex provides client applications AND a server that the client apps use - Kodi provides client applications only. Guest • Jun 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
