Plex New Feature: Sync Watch State and Ratings

From Plex Support Article:

Plex allows you to optionally sync your watched/played state and personal ratings of movies and episodes with your Plex account online. That means that if you watch a movie on a friend’s server, it can update your account so that the movie will also be marked as watched on Plex’s Discover feature, our free Movies & Shows streaming service, and any Plex Media Server you have access to.

Does this mean I can do away with PlexTraktSync already?

From what I gather, if you have multiple Plex server, you can sync your watch state across all of them. Also, if you decide to migrate an existing Plex server or re-start a new server from scratch, it won’t be much of a pain carrying over your watch states, for you, the server owner, and your users. That’s neat. No more plugin, no more Trakt, and your users whom you’ve shared your library with can enable the same to their account (this settings is account-specific).

I’ve enabled this feature in my Account Settings. Now, let’s wait for it to do its magic.

This is why Keira Knightly is my fave actress

Anna Karenina

An excerpt of the interview with Keira Knightly about her role as Anna Karenina:

Q: Is that why you think it (Anna Karenina’s character) still resonates to this day?

I think it resonates to this day because it’s about love and not just romance or just that happy bit. Not love in the way it’s all sold to us but love as the thing that we’ve been fascinated and obsessed with for centuries. Love is that thing that we are all after and yet can destroy us and is painful. It can be madness and can be joy and can be happiness. It looks at the whole thing. I think that’s why it’s so complex. It has more questions within it than it has answers. We never manage to answer the questions. Love is something that is so inexplicable and so complex and strange.

And that’s why I must watch this movie when it comes out!
