Using MediUX Sets

Have you noticed the "YAML" button on MediUX but aren't sure what it does?

Using Kometa, you can automatically apply MediUX assets to the items in your library without having to manually download and/or set each one within Plex.

This is done using a Metadata File.

Setting up the Metadata File

Let's start by creating a folder called "metadata" within the config directory of our system. I will then create a file called "mediux.yml" within that folder.

For now, we will just add a simple line to start the mediux.yml file:


You should have something like this:

Step 1

Adding your Set


It is imperative that the metadata: line only appears once within the mediux.yml file. If it appears more than once, the file will not load in Kometa and your assets will not be set.

If your Set in MediUX includes a metadata: line, you should remove it and only have metadata: appearing on line 1 of your mediux.yml file.

Now let's navigate to the MediUX website and find the Set that we want to use. In this case, I'm going to use Olivier_286's Toy Story Collection Set

Once I have logged in to MediUX, I can click on the "YAML" button here:

Step 2

I am now presented with a "Copy Links" button which includes the YAML code I need to set the assets from the Set against my library.


At present, Kometa cannot set Collection images from Metadata files. This is a known limitation.

In this example, the "Toy Story Collection" image is not present in the "Copy Links" pop-up, you would need to manually set the Collection image yourself.

I will click the copy button highlighted:

Step 3

And now I will paste it directly into my mediux.yml file, and it now looks like this:

Step 4

The file can now be saved and is ready for use.

Running the Metadata File

Now that my metadata file is ready, I can run it against my library.

I will open my config.yml file and add the mediux.yml within the metadata_files section of my Movies library:

My config.yml libraries section now looks like this:

      - file: config/metadata/mediux.yml

After running Kometa and navigating to Plex, I can see that my posters for the Toy Story movies have been updated with the images from the Set in MediUX:
