Can I play content from other sources on Kodi though Plex?
I am curious about the ingegration of Plex and Kodi. I am pretty new wtih Kodi and still sort of getting the hang of how it works, but it is like the opposite of Plex in the way that most Kodi users watch content by streaming it as it is available from video add-on sources. Ignoring the discussion of potential legal issues for a moment, while I am aware that it is possible to save streamed content from some Kodi video add-ons (though I haven't actually tried this- I have only heard that it is possible. That said, if you have content that you have saved on the storage of your Kodi (I have a 128GB micro SD) can that content be added to Plex.
While I did say specifically video add-ons, audio add-ons or photo add-ons would be able to save to local just as easily as video, presumably. I am still quite new to Kodi so I am just starting to understand what a source actually is (I know it is NOT content, just references to streams) and yes I haven't lived in a cave for the last 15 years and even when I had modded my old X-Box so it would be an nice XBMC media player I have been aware of the hubbub about it w/r/t the DMCA, among other things, and so we don't risk talking about something that could be construed as being illegal, let's assume we are talking about strictly legally available content that I presume can be saved upon my Kodi's SD. Can this media then be added to my Plex library or does Plex make that verboten due to the obvious potential for those who would use their Kodi to stream illicit content to save it in their Plex library? While I am sure the commercially available streams from proprietary sources like Netflix would obviously be excluded from this, but what about content that is freely available on YouTube for instance, other streams of freely available content that can be saved for offline viewing, or even content recorded by Kodi's PVR? How can that be added to Plex? I see a lot of potential for being able to take, say, a video recording that is local to my Kodi and loading into my iPad so that I can watch it on the bus to work whilst offline, not incurring nasty OTA data charges.
Finally, and I know this is probably just scheming and dreaming, but is it possible to watch Kodi live streams on a Kodi player with Plex installed so that I can watch said stream on another Plex client, such as that very same iPad while curled up in bed rather than from within my living room?
I have a feeling this is the noobiest of noob questions and the reason I didn't see it asked yet was because I didn't look very hard, but I would love to be pointed towards a doc that clearly defines all of the wonder things you can do with Plex and Kodi.
