What is it?

MovieMatch is an app that helps you and your friends pick a movie to watch from a Plex server.

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 +1, swipe left to -1.

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.

3. Setup

Via UI

  • If you prefer to set up MovieMatch using a web interface, just start MovieMatch and you will be presented with a configuration screen.
    The configuration will be saved in the working directory.


  • MovieMatch can be configured with a simple YAML document, which allows connecting to multiple Plex servers.
    Here's a simple example:
  port: 8000
    - url:
      token: abcdef12346

MovieMatch will read the config from /opt/moviematch/config.yaml by default.
