Overseerr helps you find media you want to watch. With inline recommendations and suggestions, you will find yourself deeper and deeper in a rabbit hole of content you never knew you just had to have.
Easy Request Management: Approving and declining requests is fast and straightforward. Open Overseerr, approve, and move on.
Granular Permissions: Grant access to specific features and restrict access to others. Each user can be assigned individual permissions.
4K Support: Manage standard and 4K content separately using multiple Radarr/Sonarr servers.
Plex Library Scanning: Overseerr scans your Plex libraries at regular intervals, so it knows which items are already available on your server.
Mobile-Friendly Experience: Use Overseerr as a near-native mobile app by adding it to your home screen. Overseerr is designed for use on any screen size.
