How do I connect my media center?

Media center plugins use what we call device authentication. This is used to link your Trakt.tv account without needing to directly enter your username or password. This also allows you to sign in using your social account. Here are the general steps to connect your media center.
  1. Create a new Trakt.tv account if you don't have one.
  2. Open the plugin settings and look for the authentication section. Instructions and an 8 digit code should be displayed.
  3. Visit https://trakt.tv/activate on your computer, phone, or tablet.
  4. Enter the 8 digit code displayed on your device. (If you're not signed in, it will ask you to do that first)
  5. Allow access to the media center plugin you're installing.
  6. Return to your media center and your Trakt.tv account is now connected!

No code displayed on your device?
Please make sure you've installed the latest version of your media center plugin. They might be using an old authentication method that isn't supported anymore. In that case, please reach out directly to the plugin developer to get more specific info.

Connecting more devices?
You can connect as many devices as you'd like. Each device requires a unique code. Please follow the above steps for each media center you want to connect.
