MovieMatch

This branch is not yet stable, please see the v1 branch for the current stable codebase

Tests Docker Pulls GitHub release (latest SemVer) GitHub release (latest SemVer including pre-releases)

Have you ever spent longer deciding on a movie than it'd take to just watch a random movie? This is an app that helps you and your friends pick a movie to watch from a Plex server.

How it works

MovieMatch connects to your Plex server and gets a list of movies (from any libraries marked as a movie library).

As many people as you want connect to your MovieMatch server and get a list of shuffled movies. Swipe right to 👍, swipe left to 👎.

If two (or more) people swipe right on the same movie, it'll show up in everyone's matches. The movies that the most people swiped right on will show up first.

Getting started

docker run -it -e PLEX_URL= -e PLEX_TOKEN= -p 8000:8000 --pull always lukechannings/moviematch:latest

Note: There is also documentation for docker-compose over here 👈

FAQ

Can a user get my Plex Token?

No. The client never talks directly to the Plex server and any requests that need the token (e.g. querying movies, getting poster art) are made by the server.

Only a subset of the Plex response is given to the client to minimise the chance of sensitive information leaking out. All server logs have both

PLEX_URL
and
PLEX_TOKEN
replaced with
****
to prevent accidental disclosure.

Can it do TV shows too?

Yes, you can include a TV library in your

LIBRARY_TITLE_FILTER
list.

Do you gather any data?

No. The server is entirely local to you and will work offline.

Do you support languages other than English?

Yes. The server will use your browser's preferred language by default if it's supported. Otherwise it'll fall back to English.

The translations can be found in configs/localization.

The file names follow BCP47 naming. Feel free to submit a Pull Request if you'd like your language to be supported.

Can I run MovieMatch behind a reverse proxy?

Yes, you can read some documentation here

MovieMatch crashes on startup with an error!

dns error: failed to lookup address information: Name or service not known

This is an issue with your DNS configuration, try using an IP address for Plex instead of a domain name as a workaround. See #70 for more details.

tcp connect error: Connection refused

MovieMatch can't connect to Plex due to your network configuration, see #51 for ideas on how to debug.
