Plex background

Post by Tazg101 » 20 Sep 2018, 19:16

Since the new update. The background in plex is the movie or tv wallpaper. This looks messy and if the wallpaper is white. Text is unreadable and the image is too bright. Is there anyway to go back to the old static image? Thanks

I assume you're talking about the Plex extension (not the built-in functionality), because I'm experiencing problems with it too.

This is what the Home screen for the Plex extension looks like:

Image
Everything normal so far.



This is what it looks like after I've started playing a video, making the "Continue watching" section appear:

Image
The thumbnail is just a blur.



If I go to the info for the movie, I get this:

Image
Looks normal.



If I regenerate thumbnails (Settings -> Appearance -> Cached Images -> Regenerate thumbnails), I get this on the Home screen:

Image
The thumbnail looks like it should, but it seems to be using the same image for the background, except without the blur effect.



The movie info screen now looks like this:

Image
Again; low-res background image without blur.



If I start playing another video, then go back to the Home screen, I get this:

Image



...and the info screen for that movie looks like this:

Image
Looks normal.



If I regenerate thumbnails again, the Home screen looks like this:

Image



...and the info screen looks like this:

Image



And so on, and so on...

Yes. Same issue for me.

If I have a mainly white background image. The image is blinding. Can’t read text either.

Thanks for the long description @KnifeFed, I also have this issue.
TBH, I'm not against fanart for background if it was handled better (shadowing box for text, better resolution for fanart).
