FileBot Xattr scanners for Plex in 2022

Post by jprokos »

Good morning

Just tried these and wondering if they are still compatible as stated on the following page:

I am unable to choose the menu items that you show as working together.


I can choose "Personal Media", "Plex Movie (Legacy)", "The Movie Database". If I choose "Plex Movie" for the Agent then the Scanner is automatically switched back to "Plex Movie" as well.

Plex will drop support for custom scanners, agents, etc, at some point in the future. The new "Plex Movie" scanner / agent probably doesn't use the old plug-in system anymore, and presumably does not separate into "scanner" and "agent" plug-ins anymore either, and thus you can't mix and match scanners and agents anymore.

:arrow: I'd just use the {} format nowadays, since Plex has added support for {tmdb-12345} markers, that will now take care of making identification simple and reliable.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
