Smart Movie Playlist not updating with Watched Status



I created a view, within my Movies library, with the below filter... Unwatched > Movies > by Release Date. Nice and simple.

I selected the "Add to Playlist" button and named the Smart Playlist accordingly.

I can see this is a Smart Playlist as as the preview image has the cog present. But the playlist still contains movies after we've watched them. Even if I manually change the Watched Status os a movie, the playlist remains static.

Have I missed a step that is preventing the playlist from updating itself?

Edit: On further investigation, this only appears to affects Plex Web - the local clients are updating their playlists just fine.


What do you mean by “local clients” I seem to have this problem across the board. This seems like a bug which should be addressed.
