Is there any way to print the movie list?

So yeah, is there any way to print out my entire awesome movie library just to show off?

    I'd suggest going to the PlexCSV release and asking about adding the images and an .htm export.
    Dane22's still active around these parts. Perhaps he'd take you up on the idea.
    He exports just about every piece of metadata into a csv file. I don't see any reason he couldn't do a web folder image/htm data file export. Heck, perhaps even see if there's a way to include a python=>pdf export for printing.
    (big dreams, you can tell him to throw stuff at me, I won't mind)
    I could see it being handy.
    Check out Plugins section of the forum. Could have sworn I've seen others than Plex2CSV (but don't remember how they listed)

    Search the Plex WIKI before asking silly questions.

    There is something out there that does this... I've seen it before.
    It creates an html version of your library list, complete with images.
    I think I saw it on @ChrisC's website somewhere.

    The very purpose is to show off. A simple list is not good enough.

    Take that image, print it from Irfanview/MSPaint/MS Windows Photo Viewer, any number of image viewers with print capabilities?
    (Now that I look, that may seem snarky, I promise, I'm not trying to be...at least at this moment)

    But you see, it took me 10 mins to copy-paste screenshots into PS to create that image. I'd like to have a built-in functionality to one-click show-off.

    Found it:

    Upon reflection... it looks like it might be abandoned now.

    This appears to be active though:

    I will check it out. I do hope the Plex team can implement this though. Can't imagine it would be too hard.

    I think I came across this before. It seems Php is required to make this work.

    I am adding something like this to my Windows scripting tool. Should be available "soon".

    Soon as in I have no idea. I am working on several additions which I think are pretty neat features and not working quite right. So when I get all the kinks worked out, I will release. Let's see which comes out first. :P

  • MovieFan.PlexMovieFan.Plex Members, Plex Pass, Plex Ninja Posts: 17,644 Plex Employee

    Sorry. Been very busy with other things. I've already started working on this, just haven't had time to finish. So "soon" is turning out to be a lot longer than I thought.
