So I wanted to let my users request movies and TV Shows to be added to my server, but I didn’t want to install another service so I made a Plex Channel for it. Plex Channel Development isn’t the greatest but I think it works well enough.
You can find the bundle on Github at:
- Allow users to search OpenMovieDatabase, TheMovieDatabase, TVDB for movies and tv shows, retrieving summaries and posters.
- Manage the requests from users in one central location
- Couchpotato and Sonarr support is integrated for automation. New: Manage Sonarr shows from within the plugin.
- Pushbullet, Pushover, Email support is also included for notifications whenever a new request is made.
This will be a beta release so it may not be completely stable yet.
I have only tested this with PlexWeb and Android, so there may be more bugs on other platforms. Sometimes Plex won’t want to show posters so you might have to manually change from list to another view format. Also in PlexWeb when entering in input, you have to use the searchbar, a new textbox won’t pop up. On other platforms there you click the link and a box should pop up. The default Pushover key will have a limit of 7,000 hits per month, if you want to avoid this, you can use your own Pushover keys.
Let me know if there are bugs and feel free to fork the project on GitHub. If anyone would like to create some more icons that would be great as well.
* Note: Sharing Channels is currently a PlexPass only feature. See the following link on how to share channels
