  • I would like to contribute to the metadata from Plex Media Scanner but I don't know where it's pulled from. Any guidance would be appreciated, I have a huge library of the 90's and there's a lot of stuff missing.
    IIRC it's a mix of The Movie Database (TMDB), The TV database (TVDB) and IMDB (despite their names, both TMDB and TVDB index movies and TV shows). Adding the shows/movies to TMDB or TVDB should make it to Plex's aggregated database in a couple days. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • How to get titles incorrectly labeled as "video" on TMDb onto Letterboxd?
    This is the answer, but it will likely take months for to respond and fix the issue. I still have an open report from November. They must have a very small team. - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
  • Best Method for Plexing The Stooges Complete Collection (1934-1959)
    I received the "box" set for Xmas (using the term loosely, what horrible packaging!) and I'm having trouble matching episodes up. I use the normal MakeMKV - Handbrake - TinyMediaManager method, but I can't get TMM to recognize the show. It looks like it defaults to and it finds two shows that aren't relevant (see photo). - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Library not recognizing all television seasons

    Movie needs need to match that of entries. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Retrieve information from

  • Unsolved Mysteries season 3.
    Yep, I just checked and it's all messed up. It won't let you delete episodes or reassign them to a different season so I just reported the issue. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Plex registers TV Show as movie
    What specific mini-series? Plex doesn't use IMDb for it's main data, but The Movie Database and TheTVDB. If either of those list it as a show/mini-series, you can tell Plex where to pull the show data via Edit show > Advanced > Episode ordering (assuming you're using the Plex TV Series agent). - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Multiple managed object contexts?
    My app as it stands now pulls data from primarily from a search view that I've created as well as a discovery view, and writes them to an entity called Movie. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Wrong episode
    Sometimes it's the source, other times it's the metadata. This happens a lot with Netflix shows when they split seasons into parts. Part 1 gets labeled as season one then part 2 gets mislabeled as season 2. You can check to see what the metadata says, then google the show to see if it's right. One series, I had to manually download an entire season into my RD. I know some older shows you have to try... - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
  • How does calculate the average color of background linear gradient?
    I've been learning html/css/js for some time and decided it's time for a bigger project. As I didn't really have any idea I started cloning a website,, but I am stuck. I don't understand how they calculate the color used in the background gradient on a movie's page. I thought is the average color of that background, but it's not. I wrote a js script to loop over the pixels and calculate the average... - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
  • I have an episode of a show named correctly but its not showing up in plex. Refreshing metadata shows it for a few seconds before its gone again. I already did the plex dance.
    Also, if your are using the lastest Plex agent, it's using the instead of thetvdb website. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • Why is Letterboxd weird about crediting producers
    IMDb is far superior. With that said, I understand why Letterboxd uses instead. IMDb isn't free for them to use. TMDb is. Fair enough! - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • Scraper not finding episodes
    It seems to work if I add them to the "Movies" tab and scrape them using This is not ideal however since I lose any sequencing from the DVD set. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • Why are some of my films translated now to German, and sometimes to a language I don't even know
    If you figure out which movie it is, check the translations from the Overview dropdown menu. If you find the translated title, you'll see which language it is. Shouldn't matter, but I thought I'll tell you anyway. Generally, should be your go-to place for any movie or TV show related infos, as well as the guideline for naming your files, along with the Plex Support Articles:. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago

  • Where to find season+episode numbers matching Plex's?
    If you're using the Plex TV Series agent (Manage Library > Edit > Advanced > Agent), then episode order will default to TMDB, but can be changed to TVDB either for the entire library (Manage Library > Edit > Advanced > Episode ordering), or can be overridden per-show via the similar Edit show > Advanced > Episode ordering. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
