    How do you know when PlexWatch is working properly? I suspect that my completely vanilla install is not working. When I play a movie and run the plexWatch.pl script, I get a bunch of warnings about deprecated left braces, but no indication that plexWatch successfully captured that I'm watching a movie.

    Output when playing a movie:

    Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated, passed through in regex; marked by <-- HERE in m/{{ <-- HERE newline}}/ at ./plexWatch.pl line 760.
    Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated, passed through in regex; marked by <-- HERE in m/{{ <-- HERE all_details}}/ at ./plexWatch.pl line 764.

    I didn't do anything to script except add my plex username and password. I don't need any of the push notifications, just want to get it configured so that I can use plexWatchWeb to monitor my friend's usage.

    Disregard, I migrated to PlexPy.

    @binshabib - This project hasn't been updated in over two years. The last post before yours was 6 months ago (way to necro!) - though I've never troubleshot why, PlexNotify stopped working for me about the same time. From previous posts, it seems to have stopped for others.
    Whether it is broken or not, you're likely not going to get any future updates.
    I'd recommend looking for PlexPy - it's actively maintained, and has a feathub git site to make suggestions such as yours.

    Hello everyone, I have been using plex for a long time but this is the first time I have tried to monitor usage. I followed all the steps listed on https://github.com/ljunkie/plexWatch and I am getting this error:

    I am running my plex server from a raspberrypi 3. Any input would be helpful!

    Hi, sorry to jump on this ship so late, but I'm new to Plex and PlexWatch.
    Is there a way to add "device" to Pushover notifications?
    It's part of their API.
    I've added:
    'device' => 'deviceNameHere',
    to the config, but it's still sending to all devices.

    Thanks

    mmace - is Plexwatch even working for you at all?
    If not, reference my post - https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/comment/1362190/#Comment_1362190
    If it is, well, I'm surprised.
