Plex Scrobbler

Modified on Sat, Aug 21, 2021 at 11:13 PM

The Plex scrobbler uses Plex Pass webhooks to automatically scrobble what you’re watching, rating, and collecting from Plex to Trakt. Once set up, everything runs automatically in the background.

What is Plex?

Plex brings together all the media that matters to you. Your personal collection will look beautiful alongside stellar streaming content. Enjoy Live TV & DVR, a growing catalog of great web shows, news, and podcasts. It’s finally possible to enjoy all the media you love in a single app, on any device, no matter where you are. Learn more and install from the Plex website.

What is scrobbling?

Scrobbling simply means automatically tracking what you’re watching. Instead of checking in from your phone of the website, this plugin runs in the background and automatically scrobbles back to Trakt while you enjoy watching your media.

How to enable the Plex Scrobbler.

The following steps will walk you through configuring Trakt and Plex to scrobble what you’re watching and rating.

Trakt VIP and Plex Pass are required to use the Plex Scrobbler.

1. Go to the Plex Scrobbler settings page.

2. Sign in to your Plex Media Server and go to the Webhooks settings.

5. Still in your Plex Media Server settings, we need to make sure a few notification options are enabled. Go to General, and make sure Push Notifications are enabled.

Go to Network, and make sure Webhooks are enabled.

Configure the Plex Scrobbler.

After enabling the Plex Scrobbler, review your settings and choose the specific actions you want to save to your Trakt profile. You most likely want to keep everything enabled, but it’s up to you.

Note: Plex Pass webhooks only allow us to get new data from Plex, we can’t send any data to Plex or sync your past history. If Plex ever allows 2 way sync, we’ll be sure to support it.

Connect your other devices

Connect as many media centers and apps with your Trakt account as you’d like to. Check out our apps listing for some of the most popular ones across all desktop and mobile platforms. It’s pretty awesome to have everything in sync between your media center, mobile devices, and the Trakt website!
