[FAQ] How do I change the media title property? How do I make Plex display nice titles?

Post by rednoah »

:!: You're asking the wrong question. You don't actually want to rewrite the embedded media information. You just want Plex to ignore the title field.

:idea: You can make Plex display nice titles, and not the embedded media title, by disabling Prefer local metadata in the library settings and Local Media Assets in the agent settings.

What did you intend to do? What problem are you trying to solve? What was expected to happen? What happened instead?

Hello, I'm having the same issue. Plex is showing file name instead of proper title. I disabled using local assets from library settings and also disabled local assets from Agent settings. No change. Plex still shows "creed.iii.2023.2160p" instead of proper "Creed III" title. The same applies to all my movie and tv series files in the library. What else can I try?

:?: Did you rescan & refresh metadata after changing your library settings?

:arrow: Please confirm that you have set all the settings, and then perform the Plex Dance to rescan the library from scratch. If you continue to have issues, please ask the Plex experts in the Plex Forums.
