    For those who host their own Plex or similar servers for their families and friends, I've knocked up a quick and simple April Fools Day pre-roll gag for today.

    Basically it's the standard court-issued notice that a given site has been shut down and that the viewer's IP has been recorded. For that extra level of authenticity, I've added a modified AFP logo and the Juice Media's Australien Government logo.

    Once configured on your server, this plays before anything your viewer chooses. It displays for 25 seconds to allow the shock to set in before a big "April Fools!" message appears with an audible party horn. It then fades to black and then the viewer's selected media should play next.

    Anyhoo, enjoy: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/128soYtciC2lfH3704pCa1JzriWAZ3xR-

    Total length is 30 seconds.

    Instructions for configuring pre-roll media in Plex can be found here: https://support.plex.tv/articles/202920803-extras/ "Advanced Settings".
