Trakt Account for TV Shows and/or movies library
« on: May 24, 2016, 11:27:50 AM »
Trakt tv is a free service that integrates with your StreamSmart and will allow you to add your favorite TV shows and Movies to your boxes in one list. Go to Trakt.TV and setup a free account. Once signed up start searching shows or movies. As you find your favorites or ones you are interest in watching simply press the “add to collection” button. This site is only the metadata (show/movie details, artwork, etc.) not the actual video files. You are not downloading anything, just putting your favorite shows & movies in one place. Once you have added a few lets sync one your add-ons with your newly created trakt.tv account.

NOTE: Once you build up your initial collection on the website you can add more from inside the add-ons in StreamSmart. You see a show you want to add click menu on remote and select "add to collection".


I am going to talk about Covenant and Salts but many others work with Trakt.

Conveant:
Go into all add-ons and click ok
Scroll down to Convenant and highlight it. Click menu on remote and select add-on settings.
scroll over to accounts and scroll down to Trackt.
click authorization
It will display a prompt to visit https://trakt.tv/activate
you will need to enter the code on the website from the screen on streamsmart
you will get a prompt to allow trakt for kodi to use your account. click yes (you may also be prompt to login to your account)
click ok on Covenant screen.


Salts
Go into all add-ons and click ok.
Scroll down to Stream all the sources and highlight it. Click menu on remote and select add-on settings.
Scroll to tab "Trakt.tv
Click on "How do I authorize SALTS to access my Trakt.tv account?"
It will display a prompt to visit https://trakt.tv/activate
from any device (smart phone/tablet/laptop etc) open that website and login to your account.
It will prompt for the code displayed on your StreamSmart. Enter that code.
It will prompt to allow SALTS to use your account. Click Yes. The prompt on StreamSmart will go away once this is completed (do not click cancel)
Go into SALTS, TV Shows, "My TV Shows Collection"
All your shows will now display

If you want to take this a step further you go to the app store on your cell phone and search seenit and install it.  The purpose of this is to use the app as your tv guide to see what shows you have airing today or the next week.

Trakt information will always remain, even after an OTA, factory reset, clear data or running the wizard.  You WILL need to login to the add-on again including after every wizard update for these two add-ons but your information will always remain since you are creating this on the website.

Timesaving tip is to bookmark the website that David listed so you can easily reauthenticate after running updates.
