How do I turn off Trailers and Extras from being retrieved?

Plex Pass subscribers can have trailers and other extras for movies automatically retrieved and added to their movie Library so that they can be streamed whenever desired.

Some users, however, may simply not care for trailers or extras at all. In that case, the feature can be turned off and any extras already retrieved can be removed from your library.

Disable Automatic Extras

Automatic extras are gathered via your metadata agents.

  1. Open Plex Web App
  2. Go to Settings > Server > Agents
  3. Select Movies in the top row
  4. Select the entry corresponding to the primary metadata agent for your Library (e.g. Plex Movie) in the second row
  5. Open the preferences for the Plex Movie agent
  6. Disable the Find trailers and extras automatically setting

Tip!: Most people will be using "Plex Movie" as their primary metadata agent. If you're using a different primary metadata agent, be sure that the appropriate agent preference is disabled for "Plex Movie" under it.

Remove Automatic Extras

Once you've made sure your primary metadata agent has the Find trailers and extras automatically setting disabled, you can remove any automatic extras for your content that have already been retrieved.

For content already in your Library, refreshing the metadata will remove the extras. You can refresh individual items to update only that movie. You can Refresh All the entire Library to remove the extras for everything.
