Description / Background
NowShowing is the successor of the popular plexReport docker. The original brainchild of bstascavage (https://github.com/bstascavage/plexReport). Further developed by NinthWalker & enhanced by GroxyPod, NowShowing adds additional improvements and features in a friendly, easy to install docker.
The NowShowing docker provides a summary of new media that has recently been added to Plex, giving the Plex owner the option of delivering the information in two ways:
1) An email summary sent to all or selected users of the Plex Server
2) A webpage for users to visit
Supported Email Clients
Supported Plex Agents
Installation on unRAID
Preferred Method: Community Applications
Step 1: Click on Apps & type in "NowShowing"
Step 2: Click Add
Step 3: Select your branch
Selecting Default will install the latest stable version of NowShowing.
Selecting dev will install the latest development version of NowShowing.
Step 4: Fill out the template
Step 4a: Advanced Section - Optional
Optional - Enter in Plex Token instead of using sername/password
Optional - Modify the UID/GID
Step 5: Installation is complete
Your installation of NowShowing is complete. If you desire to change any of the config files they can be found at your /config install path.
You can also install by adding the following template repository to unraid:
You can now edit the
advanced.yaml (and optionally
web_email_body.erb) with your own settings in your appdata dir. See
/config/advanced.yaml.example and below for details.
By default, the email will be sent out every Friday at 10:30am, and the web report will be generated once a day at 11:30pm local time. To change the schedules, enter in your own cron time in the advanced.yaml file. Restart the docker to have the changes take effect. See this page for help creating a time/date in cron: https://crontab.guru/
Are there any plans to make a Plex Laika client for Sharp Aquos TVs? The model in question is the lc-46le824.
Many thanks in advance!
So I took the time to learn a tiny amount of cmd line and figured I'd share my script in case there are others who could get some use out of it. It's a simple script; uses mediainfo cmd line to compare a numerical value to a variable such as bitrate or resolution, then encodes the files that fall within your parameters using handbrake. I'll attach the .bat files and the code in case you'd rather create the file yourself (for safety reasons). For the attached files, change extension to from .txt to .bat
My scripts are currently set up for 720p encoding, but most of the settings can be easily modified, just carefully look through the script and edit. Search google for handbrake & mediainfo cmd line variables for help on how to edit those.
I know it's not the cleanest, it's literally my first and only script I've ever made.
Some simple instructions:
1. Download MediaInfo cmd line & Handbrake cmd line. Rename them MediaInfo.exe & HandBrakeCLI.exe
2. Create folder to store cmd line & batch files.
3. Run batch script and follow on screen instructions.
1080p to 720p downconvert script:
@echo off set mediainfo="%~dp0MediaInfo.exe" set result="%~dp0width.txt" set handbrake="%~dp0HandBrakeCLI.exe" SETLOCAL ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION Set /P a=Enter source path: set a1=%a: =_% set src=%a1:"=% if not %src:~-1%==\ set src=%src%\ Set /P b=Enter destination for converted files: set b1=%b: =_% set dest=%b1:"=% if not %dest:~-1%==\ set dest=%dest%\ for /R %a% %%j in (*.*) do ( Echo Filepath is: %%j %mediainfo% --Inform=Video;%%Width%% "%%j" > %result% set /P width=<%result% del %result% echo Width is: !width! if !width!

Bitrate downconvert script:

Is there a way to search on the xbox one plex app, I cant seem to find it.
i set up my Android Box with PKC now, finally for the first time everything runs who i wanted things to run so thank you PKC, the Plex and the Kodi guys!
One thing which I am actually struggling with is the editing of my Nodes. Under the category Movies i got some nodes like e.g. recently added. When now editing the nodes in the settings menue, and i am like deleting the random node because i dont want to have it, the nodes still show up under my movie section. Also nodes that are reordered are shown in the same exact location like before.
So ok it seems that the settings are not saved after all, but why? When still in the Kodi menue, all the settings are memorized as long as i am in the settings menue. E.g. when i reorder the nodes, exit the menue (still in the settings) and go back to editing the movie category, the nodes are still reordered.
Am I doing something wrong here?
I am wondering if anyone else has had this problem and if you managed to solve it, I have been using PleXBMC on Kodi 16, 16.1 and now 17.1 and i have never got channels too work [Always has the check log error].
If i use Plex.tv on my windows 8.1 laptop the channels work no problem so i know it is not an issue with my server or how i have the server setup.
My Movies and TV shows work perfectly fine.
On another note if i try to play the same channels on the FireTV app from Amazon store [So is the latest version] again Movies/TV shows are 100% but channels instantly have the "Playback has stopped because the connection to the Plex Media Server has been lost" error
So in short Live TV channels even BBC iPlayer etc will not work on PlexBMC or Plex FireTV
I can provide an error log for Kodi if needed but i thought maybe someone else had the same issue and found a fix.
Thanks in advance.
