Plex Media Server Detection - Atelier-Shiori/hachidori Wiki

Hachidori supports detection with Plex Media Server. This means you can detect media from all clients (Plex Home Theater, Plex Web and Plex Media Player) without having to turn off the Plex Agent. The program will retrieve the metadata of the playing video file to get the source file name used for detection. If you are playing transcoded media, Plex Agent's Metadata will be used instead if available or the title.

You must login with your Plex account before you can detect from Plex Media Server. You can do this in the Plex Preferences pane. Once you log in, Hachidori will save the token to the Keychain.

Here are the settings:

Not detecting anything?

Hachidori will only detect sessions where the video is playing. Since a user can have multiple sessions, it will only take the one that is currently playing a video file.
