Trailer Downloads

Allan CameronAllan Cameron Posts: 528Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

I have been searching for something that will download movie trailers for me local and add them to the dir where my movies are (movie name-trailer). I can't seam to find anything that will do this for Plex.

Emby has a plugin that does this and works great. Its called ytrailers.
You just run it and it downloads every trailer and dumps it in with the move and re-names it correctly. I find it hard to believe that Plex has nothing like this?

Any help would be great, thanks!

    Why do you need to download movie trailers?

    Plex will add a link to a trailer hosted online, to (almost) all your movies automatically.

    Yes you are correct but I prefer the trailers to be viewable for offline play just as the movies are. Local streaming is always better than online streaming for my needs. That is exactly why the plugin exist for emby media server.
