Emby AND shared MySQL database?

I have a silly question... I know Emby controls the play state and metadata for movies for Kodi, and that I can install Kodi with the Emby plugin on multiple machines. For each machine, do I have to configure the user(s) and do a full scan so there is a local Kodi database on that PC, or can I used advancedsettings.xml and point all machines to one Kodi DB so I don't have to create a local copy on each?

 

Or... is all that irrelevant?  I was pretty sure that even with Emby, you have to have a local Kodi database on each PC, which then gets synced via Emby each time you start up.

 

Hope that's not too confusing of a question...

I will keep the answer simple. You can not use MySQL.

 

However if you know what you are doing, you can copy the setup from one machine to another.

 

OK thanks guys.  I guess I don't know so I'll ask... shall I just copy everything in the userdata folders to another PC, or some other way?  I remember a backup plugin for Kodi, but it didn't work for me in that the restores were never usable.
