Update CRIMSON 9-18-18
This update, codename Crimson, is the biggest overhaul in the Austad Movies systems since the server first started over a year ago. We have many new and exciting features outlined below:
[Update 1] Single sign-on is now compatible with Ombi and Plex on our servers. Now you don’t have to have a separate Ombi username and password, you will login directly with your Plex username and password. To access Ombi and other applications, click “Launch” from the austadmovies.com home page menu.*
[Update 2] Automatic movie and TV show acquisition is a new feature for Austad Movies users. This means that you can find a movie or show on Ombi and that media will automatically start uploading to the server as soon as you request it. This feature is currently available to users who have made ANY donation to Austad Movies.**
[Update 3] Request status interface. Your requests are processed and posted on the website so you can track the status of your request. You can access the page by clicking the “Launch” button from the homepage and signing into Austad Movies Apps with your Plex username and password. Click the download icon on the left-hand side to see the download status page.
[Update 4] Encryption. Website now authenticates through SSL (HTTPS) for better encryption ensuring that your data sent to and from the server is safe.

Now the Austad Plex movie server will require you to have your own, personal Plex account to access content. With this change there are many new and exciting features:
Personalized content: save your TV show progress and movies you’ve seen and want to see.
Better communication: get notifications about server downtime and new content.
Access to Ombi: Directly request whatever movie or TV show you want! Requests are sent to HQ as suggestions for new content.
To get started you will need to create a Plex account and fill out this form to request access to Plex and Ombi.
Your Ombi account is tied to the Austad Plex server and allows you to search for content that is both available on the server and is not available. You can request titles after searching for them there. Additionally, you can submit an issue with the content that is available for a variety of reasons: unavailable/broken content, poor quality content, or subtitles missing. You can also use the forums to report issues or requests, but please limit them to generalized topics about the whole server or website, not individual movies.
The forum ‘Austad Movie Information’ is closed to new topics and replies.
