Request: Filter by Audio Channels

trevor.corteztrevor.cortez Members Posts: 42 ✭✭
Now that we have 'filter-by-resolution' (thanks!), it seems only natural to be able to also filter (and potentially sort) by audio channel count mono, stereo, 5.1 and 7.1.

    I am searching the forums as speak for such filter. It would be great filter to have to complete the available filter options.

    Just wanted to post this feature request when I found that others have asked for it already years ago! Come on people - the Plex Server already reads this data from every single file (at least it always shows as "DTS" or "5.1"... on the Apple TV App). Besides this - a great app/service! Keep up the great work!

    +1 - Trying to test audio settings on a new receiver and I've got no quick way of finding titles with specific sound formats.

    +1 in 2017 for audio filter! Trying to create a collection for 7.1 content..

  • cr4zyg047cr4zyg047 Members, Plex Pass Posts: 4 Plex Pass

    I have been manually curating my content into a separate 'theater' library for the last few months because there's no good way to retroactively make a 'quality' filter (apart from adding them to a collection manually).

    Please! Seems like such simple thing. The metadata is already there.

    How has this never been implemented? Ridiculous how long it takes them to do simple things.
