Long story short, ns had about 8 documents that were blended up and the wrong episode. Corrected it yet the video clip preview papers were for the not correct episodes. So ns deleted the BIF documents thinking plex would just recreate them. Fine it didnt..I tried examining just the season, scanning media files, restarting plex, analysis the whole library, scan the whole library. Nothing has actually worked. The been around 3 days now. I have seen plex create video previews because that other records though in the typical time....

You are watching: Plex generate video preview thumbnails

Edit: It appears the video clip preview documents are there, yet the thumbnail picture for each illustration within the season page is missing....

Edit 2: solved, the Plex run worked! view comments below. Many thanks everyone!

You can enable whether or not your Plex Media Server will certainly generate video preview thumbnails in your Library settings for your Server. You’ll find those under settings > Server > Library in the Plex net App.

You can pick to disable the feature or to generate them one of two people only throughout your Scheduled work maintenance or both throughout maintenance and also when new content is added

This would lead me to think it will certainly happen throughout scheduled maintenance

As /u/Murky-Sector mentioned, you deserve to use the commandline because that this. Over there are alternatives to pass in a catalog or individual files, yet the only thing that's operated for me is to happen in the item id that the illustration directly, which deserve to be a little bit of a nuisance to discover for TV shows.

Find the identifier of her library section: Plex\ Media\ Scanner -l

In the web interface, navigate to the season you want to regenerate thumbnails for. In the attend to bar, you need to see something favor ...key=%2Flibrary%2Fmetadata%2F123456.... The 123456 is what you want.

You could additionally use the commandline to find this making use of something choose Plex\ Media\ Scanner -c -l | grep "My display Name" (or "Plex Media Scanner.exe" -c -l | findstr "My present Name" in Windows)

Back in the commandline, list the individual episodes of the season: Plex\ Media\ Scanner -l -c -o 123456

123457: illustration 1 123458: illustration 2Take the IDs for the individual episodes and also run them v the scanner: Plex\ Media\ Scanner -g -x -o 123457

Plex automatically recreates video preview thumbnails top top it's own if A) The file name or metadata the the record of miscellaneous that currently has lock is various or B) Passively throughout a maintain break. You can also force the thumbnails to it is in regenerated through analyzing/refreshing a file that doesn't have actually them if friend don't desire the server come wait till the maintenance break. Or you could just remove the file from whereby the server have the right to see it, delete the document on Plex's interface, then re-add the file. Removing then re-adding the record from Plex will constantly force the preview generation due to the fact that as far as the server is involved it's brand-new content.
