Extract the contained Shokofin.dll and meta.json, place both the files in a folder named Shokofin and copy this folder to the plugins folder under the Jellyfin program data directory or inside the portable install directory. Refer to the “Data Directory” section on this page for where to find your jellyfin install.

  3. Start or restart your server to apply the changes


Before you start using the plugin it is important to make sure the connection settings are correct, otherwise the plugin will be unable to gather metadata from your running instance of Shoko Server. If you’re running both Jellyfin and Shoko Server on the same machine and haven’t changed the default username/password in Shoko Server, then you’re all set to go, but if not then you need to provide the Host, Username and Password credentials in the plugin settings as shown below.

Shokofin - Connection Options

After you’ve tweaked the connection settings then you’re free to change any of the other settings to your liking, but remember; you need to refresh (or rebuild) your library/libraries if you make any changes to the plugin settings.
