filter movies for content in Plex (edit movies)

thebruce1thebruce1 Posts: 7Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

I would be interested if anyone thinks it would be possible to create a plugin or something of the sort for Plex that would allow you to filter movies based on Language, Sexual Content, etc...  So for example if a movie says the f-bomb a lot and you don't want your kids to hear....is it possible to create something that would filter out the language?  There are a few companies that do this to google play and youtube movies as well as DVD/Blurays.  





Curious if anyone knows if this could be done.

    Here is another link to someone who kind of has one using VLC

    I am also very interested in adding video filtering capabilities to Plex. Though I am not a coder, I would be very willing to help with testing or documentation.

    I am also very interested in getting this going. This would be amazing to add onto Plex making it the ultimate home entertainment.

    Alpha will be up by end of December. GitHub repository and whatnot coming by end of week. Donation links and other stuff coming as well.

    Would this be on the channels or built in to Plex by default?

  • edifiededified Posts: 63Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    I'm also very interested in this being added to Plex. I'd be willing to help create filters for movies I own. @dittmanfamily do you have a github repo link?

  • d_challd_chall Posts: 1Members

    I would love something like this. I have coding experience, but never done anything like this before. @dittmanfamily did you end up starting a project or not?

    I ran across this the other day. http://www.vlcleanplayer.com/

    IT doesn't look like it has a super active community, but it would be nice to be able to use the filter files made by this to work inside plex. Maybe we can jumpstart both projects and bring more attention to them.

    +1 for this idea! I wish I had the technical know-how to work on something like this (and the time). "Plex forum moderators, please pass this feature request along"

  • pureblokepurebloke Posts: 1Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    I'm also very interested in having a resource like this for Plex. I would certainly contribute to any project that may arise for the creation of such a feature or plugin!

    Is anyone working on this? I think there could be a huge demand. With the updated ClearPlay and VidAngel models, they just don't work for me and my family. I watch most movies on Plex from my personal server. I would love the ability to filter the content of those movies somehow other than constantly holding the remote in my hand and hitting skip forward or mute as needed.

  • SteinssSteinss Posts: 2Members

    If Vidangel can link up to Netflix and Amazon, why not to Plex? Come on Plex, this would be HUGE!!!

  • ocmyhomeocmyhome Posts: 8Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    @dittmanfamily Any update on this effort? I know myself and others would be happy to donate to this...

  • crobs808crobs808 Posts: 1Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    Does VidAngel offer a publicly accessible API? Does Plex? If so, I'll learn how to code simply to make this, lol.

  • praeluceopraeluceo Posts: 7Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    I too would find this awesome! As a Vidangel and PlexPass subscriber, I'd even be willing to buy the plugin!

  • orangeirocorangeiroc Posts: 2Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    I think this would be a great feature, @dittmanfamily I would like to assist on this project if needed. I am with @praeluceo a plugin like this would definitely be worth the investment.

    I’m also interested in this too if anyone is working on it.

  • rjosherjoshe Posts: 1Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    This would be a HUGE feature. I would gladly pay for this plugin.
