Does anyone know why RasPlex doesn't search categories and collections, etc? Is it any known way to enable this feature?

    Do you mean why doesn't the search allow for limited results by category and collection tag? Or are you talking about sorting them?

    I mean searching for all films with an actor, genre or an entire collection (lets say, james bond) and get a list of all the bond films.

    That's a good question. Not sure how their search API returns results, but if it's available on the other clients (collections does not seem to be supported at all), I would think it could be available here. Are you looking at the 1.7 beta? If it's not there, we should file a request on github for it.

    Im testing 1.6.2.123

    From what I can tell it just checks inside the titles

    You can search in this way on the web app and android client which it´s great if you are building a categorized video library. But from what I can tell clients like the windows phone app and opera tv doesn´t have it
