Collections on Roku

s_plex@binarez.coms_plex@binarez.com Posts: 1Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Hi,

The Plex app on my Roku is version 5.1.

First, am I up to date? I think Roku updates automatically when a new version of the app comes out, is that right?

I really like the Collections feature for my movies but I only have that on the web client. When can I expect this feature to land on the Roku app?

    I'm not in front of a Roku, so I can't verify, but I'm pretty sure you can see the collections in the same place you can sort your movies by genre. View all your movies, and then select "All Movies", then "Collections".

    @tycho1974 I believe what @s_plex@binarez.com is asking is when will the collections behave like the web app and others. In other words, it would be nice to see one thumbnail appear for the collection of movies instead of all the movies scattered throughout the library in all their non-chronological glory. Not to mention it is annoying to sort by collections the way you suggest. Yes, it is possible, but not what we Roku users are wanting.

    What you're referring to is a "playlist", not a "collection". A playlist is a collection of movies, episodes, or music that you can sort manually as you see fit, and a collection is basically a user-made genre. I've never had an issue viewing playlists on my Roku. To wit, here's a screenshot of playlists on the web UI:

    ...and this is the playlist button on the Roku UI:


    (Clicking that button leads you to a screen with thumbnails for the playlists, just like in the web UI)

    I've never seen a thumbnail for collections in any UI I've used, but maybe I'm wrong and I don't understand OP's question at all.

    I would also like to see the "automatically adjust quality" option added to the Roku client.

    Agreed I would love to see this feature. My Roku is my main access to view this on my TV and it would be extremely useful to see the collections in-line.
    Is there another device that functions similar to Roku that does support Collections?
