Advanced Settings XML File
The Advanced Settings XML file for Kodi allows for changing advanced configuration options that cannot be achieved through the Kodi GUI.
Useful Advanced Settings XML file configurations include: Tweaks for low power devices, move library to MySQL for syncing, set streaming and cache optimization settings, change video library scanning and operations, personalize playback controls.
The Kodi advancedsettings.xml file should be located under ~/.kodi/userdata/. Note that advancedsettings.xml file does not exist by default, it has to be created by the user in the userdata folder.
