You cannot populate the library using uPnP. Use another network protocol like SMB or NFS.

UPnP itself is not compatible with Kodi's own video library. You will have to "scrape" your video collection using a video source via (preferably) the SMB or NFS file protocol, to see posters and fanart inside Kodi.

Everything, huh? Sorry, but UPnP cannot be used as a basis for Kodi's video or music libraries.

Disabling a firewall shouldn't be necessary.
Windows 10 and Kodi are now defaulting to SMBv2 (and higher), which means two things for SMB in general:
- Network browsing is no longer supported
- Windows shares are to be linked to a user account that is also password-protected.

You will need to manually add a network location in Kodi's GUI, and enter all relevant details for the SMB source.
NFS is not a default available network protocol, but there are 3rd party solutions.
