Request: Movie Theme Music


#1

I think an amazing feature that should be added to each selected movie (much like TV show), would be movie theme music or soundtrack in the background at 65%-80% volume, (not too over powering).

 

While doing some digging around the internet, I found an excellent source for movie soundtrack audio streams in SoundCloud playlists, or theOst.com . There are whole movie soundtracks that can be streamed for free, and would make for an excellent metadata agent for streamed theme music. 

 

Having the music in the background builds anticipation for a great movie, and completely brings the theather experience to plex.

 

Possible Sources I've found:

 

Sound cloud (under playlist section): Sound Cloud Api

TheOst.com: http://www.theost.com/

Lastfm (under Album section): http://www.last.fm/music/Alan+Silvestri/The+Avengers

I like this idea. I mean, in general, this would be a great feature in all sorts of interfaces. Netflix, iTunes and so on. I think there might be music licensing issues though. They might have to pay for using each song.

I don't think there would be for Plex. In the way i'm suggesting Plex would only be streaming the soundtracks to the matched movies sourced at sound cloud. Plex would not be storing, or redistributing the music for download, but rather searching sound cloud as an agent. Akin to the Plex TV Show section, the matched movie soundtracks would automatically play in the background while at the movie synopsis screen.

Do you mean in a similar way that DVD menus play, on Plex when you select a movie/show to show information? I think that'd be awesome. I've been slowly adding my DVDs to my media library and I miss this feature.

I see. I would like to see as a feature personally.

Not to mention watching movies like Frozen you'll never get that song out your head.

Or The Lord of The Rings.

I would like this feature also.

Another way of doing this would be to allow (for movies) the option for each user to add a 30 second music clip so that we all could do the necessary .. If there is such an option already for Tv Shows I am not aware how to do it

I too would like this.
Frankly I was surprised when it wasn't available.

More-so now to find out now that there isn't a way for individuals to manually enable it and provide music.

I want this badly! :)

This 2017 Plex's movie section needs to be more theatrical, and grow beyond just a simple background poster.

PLEASE PLEX GUYS JUST MAKE IT ALREADY :)


#13

This needs to be done. Your competitors are already doing it, and their fan base loves it. Please plex, make it happen! :)

Please make this happen! It shouldn't be too difficult to implement.
