Pre-rolls are supported in Jellyfin by installing the Jellyfin Plugin Intros plug-in created by u/gellifin. The plug-in allows you to play an intro before Movies and TV from a local directory or you can specify Vimeo IDs for the plug-in to cache. The Vimeo option is no longer recommended now that prerolls.video hosts its own videos and some users may experience quality issues.
The install process is super simple and will only take a few minutes using the Jellyfin dashboard. Before you begin, make sure you copy your downloaded Jellyfin intros to a directory that Jellyfin has access to.
