Plex Introduces 'Skip Credits' Feature

Posted February 16, 2023 at 3:41pm by iClarified
The Plex media player has announced a new 'Skip Credits' feature that lets users easily skip over credits to quickly get to the next episode.

Today, we're taking the wraps off our brand new Skip Credits feature! It works a little bit like Skip Intro, AKA Intro Detection (though the underlying tech is quite different, more on that in a bit). When the credits start to roll, you get the option to skip them with a single click. Plex Pass holders can enable it for their personal media collection—so if you've been on the fence, maybe it's time to finally make that upgrade. Want to see it in action first? Skip Credits is also available on our ENTIRE free streaming on demand catalog.

Credit detection works for both TV shows and movies, and will detect and let you skip directly to mid-credits or post-credits scenes with the same single click.

To enable the feature, Plex developed a machine learning algorithm to come up with a reliable set of markers to determine when credits begin and end. A cloud-based repository stores the results in case you ever need to rebuild a library or do a clean install. By default, the results of local credit detection efforts are anonymously submitted to Plex, so they don't need to be recomputed.

While Skip Credits works automatically in Plex's own streaming library, Plex Pass users will need to trigger end credit detection after updating to the latest Plex Media Server. You can trigger end credit detection for individual items by performing an "Analyze," and your entire library will gradually be analyzed automatically as part of nightly maintenance (configurable in server settings under "Scheduled Tasks").
