A Python based monitoring and tracking tool for Plex Media Server.Project mention: My Overkill Home Network – Complete Details 2023 | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-08-10
> How hard is this to configure?
Not at all. Just ensure that you have WoL enabled on the host machine and than proceed to send a magic packet. You could even do this with Home Assistant  if you are into that. I did this with a script that used tcpdump to monitor for incoming traffic  for Plex with an additional (dummy) Plex server on the Pi. I also remember faintly that I had to add 1 library and 1 video file to make this work though.
Powering down - or sleep - is a bit harder. I built a 'Sleep on LAN' app  for myself years ago that could power down (or sleep) a system on demand using a REST API. I used this and Tautulli  with Home Assistant that would check if there were any active streams and if there wasn't any activity for a specified amount of time I would send a SoL request to my service.
As you can see it isn't super hard or complicated, but a bit cumbersome to find all the moving bits and make it work. But when it does, it's IMHO fantastic.

Automate downloading and metadata generation with YoutubeDLProject mention: Archived YouTube Video Finder | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-11-11
I recently found ytdl-sub which is basically a metadata wrapper around yt-dlp to help you save videos in a format library software like Plex etc supports. Rather than having some horribly named videos with metadata files just taking up space.

Oh shit! I never even bothered to look because I asked a long time ago and was given and emphatic no. It looks like there is a playlist class. So I'll have to play with that and see what it can do.

Plex Metadata Agent for Movies and TV Series librariesProject mention: Plex incorrectly combining YT videos as "versions" | /r/PleX | 2023-07-07
Ah, some assumptions go out the window when you start using third-party agents/scanners, since they don't need to (and usually don't) follow Plex's normal naming conventions. That said, I'm not sure what's going wrong on your end, since I just followed the setup instructions here, copied your file names above, and that seemed to work (minus the name of the show getting set to the file path for some reason): https://i.imgur.com/hivSzYl.png

Automated language selection for Plex TV Shows !Project mention: /r/Plex's Moronic Mondays' No Stupid Questions Thread - 2023-08-21 | /r/PleX | 2023-08-28
My guess is that for both tracks the actual language code used is just Spanish, and it's just the title that indicates esp versus lat. In that case, since there are multiple tracks with the same language, Plex will pick the first track available. You might have to use something like PASTA or Plex Auto Languages for better control over selected audio/subtitles.
