Topic: Plex and Magic Videos

Plex is a Media Server that allows you to organize and stream your videos from a server at your house to Plex clients on your phone, tv, computer, roku, etc. For TV and Movies, meta information is stored in various DB's that Plex can access for Posters and descriptions of your video. Has anyone tackled organizing their magic video collection into something like Plex or maybe Kodi with the various metadata, either manually with XML files or with a DB of some sort? I'm about to start organizing my videos into Plex and did not want to reinvent the wheel on entering the metadata.

I use plex for all of my videos, magic and non. No such database exists to the best of my knowledge.

I'm very interested in this exact challenge. I have my entire Magic video Libray on my Plex Server. I have been painstakingly working on cover art, descriptions, contents, etc... as was as categorizing by magician. I know that between Penguin, L&L, Murphy's and other similar magic retail web sites all of this metadata info is out there. I would love to know if there is a simple way to construct a library source similar to IMDB and TVDB using the data from Murphy's Penguin & L&L. Let's keep this thread active in the hopes that someone has figured out how to utilize the wealth of magic metadata that already exists to create a Plex Magic Metadata Agent.
