Once you have confirmed that your media files have been correctly organized and named, you can return to the Plex Media Server and launch the Media Manager to begin configuration. Your browser will launch and load the Media Manager.
The first time you choose Configure Plex Media Server, your browser will launch and the Media Manager Setup Screen will load. The screen allows you to begin setting up Media Sections. A Section is a group of Movies, TV Shows or Music files. Each section will appear in the Plex client – whether it’s your LG Smart TV, Bluray player or another Plex Client.
Choose Add Movies Section from the startup screen : a sheet will slide down.
Once you’ve added a Section to the Media Manager, it will be scanned by the Plex Scanners, then an Agent will attempt to match the media files it’s identified. You don’t need to do anything during this process.
The first step is scans the director and loads the media files into to the Media Manager window. You’ll notice a change from a generic icon as a file is seen, to an atom as it’s analyzed, and then a frame grab from the show is generated.
Once a media file has been identified and analyzed, the Plex Agents begin checking the Internet for data about the show. Once all the metadata has been gathered, the show’s icon will display a poster.
