Sharing & Streaming a movie on Social Media

Hi
I have been using Plex Media Server since 2015. I use trakt.tv and Plex Web Export (http://kaan.dogan.org/plex). I need front-end that can access to my Plex server with temporary link (I should set duration). If I share this link, the people should watch this movie on facebook or twitter. But after time out, link will be invalid. I know PHP, If I can easily integrate to Plex Web Export, it would be great.I tried plexJS but looks like this project also dead. Actually what I need:

I need some php or asp code that will be bypass PLEX authentication, It should open a public door for temporary time.
OR
I need a new web player (maybe HTML5), it will be open a public door for temporary time, customized, this player should have Social Network Sharing.

What is your advice and idea? Thanks

    Bypassing Plex Authentication?

    I think this idea is doomed from the start.

    What is the intended use case for something like this?

    I came here to request this feature but with a different intended use case.

    I want to be able to share a movie or tv show without giving access to my entire library. For example, I have a friend at work I want to share a documentary with. He can't come over and watch it because we work the same hours but he works when I'm off and vice versa. He doesn't have plex so I can't grant him full access and I wouldn't want to because I'm a gamer and don't want him using up my upload bandwidth all the time. I also don't want to worry about managing the whole thing.

    Plex should be able to generate a tempory token. This token could be set to expire so many hours like 48hrs or something and the token could be for a whole library or just a single item depending on what page you are viewing when you hit the "share" button.

    Easy way around this is get him to create a plex account, move your media to a temporary folder, send him an invite to become friends and then only share that temporary folder with him.

    This is what I want exactly!
