HD Trailers

derickderick Posts: 10Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Hi Everyone! It's my 'help world' in starting a new topic.  

 

Just wanted to know if there was a way to use high res trailers (720p like in apple trailers) in PlexConnect.  The current implementation is great, and using HD trailers would make it even better.

    Yep, hijack the iMovie Theatre app instead of Trailers. :)

    My reply was mostly cheeky, but also I didn't realize that @dericksantillan was (probably) referring to the Trailer button on the pre-play screen. I've never used it, so forgot it was there; thought he was using a Channel or something.

    If the trailer pulled by the PlexConnect pre-play screen is indeed not high-def, then that's definitely worth looking into.

    It was actually code contributed by a user, last I heard he was going to look at language support but that was a couple of months ago I think. The Plex guys keep saying this is on their radar for PMS (really where the code should sit) but they have been saying this for a long time.
    I wonder if the original dev contributed is interested in picking this up or indeed avoided HD because there were issues with the search code.
    It is a very cool feature :)

    Plex @ aTV - think different: PlexConnect

    -> the missing link between Plex Media Server and your AppleTV - 2 or 3, jailbroken or not.

    Is there any update to getting this HD trailer feature? Some of the SD trailers are pretty poor quality.

    Great this looks to be exactly what I am looking for. >:D<

    Why would this feature not have been added to the latest dev-110616?

    I am not an advanced user but would really like to have use of this feature, any chance of a link or tip on how to install this code?
