Extras

Plex Media Server settings related to "Extras". You can access these under Settings > Server > Extras in Plex Web App.

The Cinema Trailers feature allows you to automatically have some trailers played before the "main feature" when you start playing a movie, which helps provide a more cinema-like experience. These settings allow you to indicate what sort of trailers are chosen.

Settings to control actual playback are available in the Plex Apps themselves. Not all Apps currently support Cinema Trailers.

Cinema Trailers pre-roll video

You can use this to allow you to specify a video to be automatically played after trailers and before the "main feature" movie. This can be used to add a "THX Sound" clip, a "please silence your phones" message, or similar.

Note: In order to have the "pre-roll" video played, users will need to have the Cinema Trailers feature enabled in their Plex App.

To set your "pre-roll" video:

  1. Add the desired video to a Library in your Plex Media Server (you can add to an existing video Library or create a new one)
  2. Use Plex Web App and browse to the details page for that item
  3. Copy the full URL (in the browser's address bar) from that details page and paste it into the settings field

The URL you use might be something like:

https://plex.tv/web/app#!/server/8df4c5be0185270b683fafb4c8efd83daa108dc6/details/%2Flibrary%2Fmetadata%2F20590
