I'm using Plex. I've activated the "scan my library automatically" in my plex server. It's runs perfectly. As soon as Filebot send the renamed file in the Plex scanned folder : the new media is indexed by Plex.
What is the "Plex automated media center" option in Filebot node ? I just have a look on how getting the "host:token" information from my Plex server : it seems quite hard to obtain. (API requests...)
What does this option bring ?

It's quite easy to get the token. There's a tutorial with screenshots in the Plex docs.

If it's working by watching folders, then you dint really need it though.

The option will make FileBot send a rescan request to Plex, so new files will show up immediately. Useful if watching folders is too resource intensive or straight up just doesn't work.
