Playlists

The playlist Default Collection File is used to create playlists based on popular Movie/TV Show universes (such as the Marvel Cinematic Universe or Star Trek).

This Default file requires Trakt Authentication

This file assumes that you have libraries named Movies and TV Shows. If you do not have these libraries or want to use alternative/additional libraries, use the libraries template variable which is outlined in the Template Variables table.

Template Variables

Template Variables can be used to manipulate the file in various ways to slightly change how it works without having to make your own local copy.

Note that the template_variables: section only needs to be used if you do want to actually change how the defaults work. Any value not specified will use its default value if it has one if not it's just ignored.
