Micro 'How To:'

  • Create a PlexIt! favorite in Edge, and then edit the URL of the favorite with the following string: javascript:(function(d){var s=d.createElement('script');s.type='text/javascript';s.src='//';var h=d.getElementsByTagName('head')[0];h.appendChild(s);}(document))

Bada Bing!

Short 'How To:'

  1. In Edge, navigate to the "Watch Later Help" page on your Plex Server.
  2. Right-click on the 'PlexIt!' button within the page, and then select "Copy link."
  3. Create a new favorite of any web page (rename the favorite "PlexIt!," and then save it to your "Favorites Bar" folder, or any other 'Favorites' folder).
  4. Right-click on the newly created favorite, and select "Edit URL." Then, paste the URL that was copied in 'Step 2,' and press 'Enter' to save.
  5. Try out your shiny, new PlexIt! bookmarklet on a YouTube or Vimeo video.


Long 'How To:'

  1. Navigate to the "Watch Later Help" page via Microsoft Edge (sign-in if necessary): the page address is .
  2. Right-click on the "PLEX IT!" button, and select "Copy link" from the context menu that appears.
  3. Navigate to (or any page) via Microsoft Edge (so your new PlexIt! bookmarklet will have the Plex logo as the favicon), and add the Plex website to your favorites (*Note: Before completely saving the favorite, rename it to "PlexIt!" (without quotes), and then save/add it in the 'Favorites' location of your choice (e.g. the "Favorites Bar" folder).
  4. Locate the new favorite you just saved in your 'Favorites' list, and then right-click on it in order to select "Edit URL" from the context menu that appears.
  5. Paste the link copied from 'Step 2' into the URL field, and press 'Enter' on your keyboard to save.
  6. Give your new PlexIt! bookmarklet a try by navigating to a supported video (on YouTube or Vimeo), and then click on the PlexIt! bookmarklet. (*Note: When you first click on the PlexIt! bookmarklet you will be prompted to sign-in to Plex within a slide-out window on the left-side of Microsoft Edge. After successfully signing into Plex a new tab/window will open in Microsoft Edge. Just close the extra tab/window, and go back to the previously opened video (on YouTube or Vimeo), and the PlexIt! bookmarklet will now work as expected.
