Kill A Stream button?

wharris623wharris623 Members, Plex Pass Posts: 52 Plex Pass

Hey folks, was wondering where this button is at? I don't see it on my now playing screen. Anyone have a screen shot of this mystical and magical and oh so necessary button?

Thanks in advance,

Wes

    Yes, it will support stopping a direct play session.

    @ericmatthys So can we kill all user streams or only admin streams?

    Amazing. Can't wait for this!

    Finally I can kill a stream when remote users leave a movie on pause all night and go to sleep. I don't have to shut down the server and start it back up to kill it anymore.

    The feature should be available to all Plex Pass subscribers now.

    Sorry, but it's not showing for me :(

  • ostmanostman Members, Plex Pass Posts: 3 Plex Pass

    @blim5001 Restarting the server worked for me.

  • ericmatthysericmatthys Plex Employee Members, Plex Employee, Plex Pass, Plex Ninja Posts: 3,222 Plex Employee

    Yep, try restarting your server, ensure you are the admin user with a Plex Pass subscription, and ensure the web app you are using is v3.0.0.

  • blim5001blim5001 Members, Plex Pass Posts: 404 Plex Pass

    @ostman
    Thanks, that solved it :)

  • blim5001blim5001 Members, Plex Pass Posts: 404 Plex Pass

    Does it require the latest PMS?
    As I have one server using the HW Transcoding release and it does not seem to work on that one

    @ucjb No, if its the new one, it should say Version 3.0.0

    I think its only available via app.plex.tv
    Are you viewing via http://app.plex.tv/ ? if you are, you might need to refresh your browser

    Thanks! That was part of the problem but I still don't have the kill button.
