Again, support it. You must extend the functionality of Infuse to these side areas to keep user in your application and offer additional benefits to the users

Please add support for the Extras folder. Just joined and the missing Extras support ist most important coming from Kodi on Raspi.
Apart from the special handling/presentation desired for extra content, currently the videos placed in my Extas folders are scanned
and thrown/shown as movies at the moment, screwing up the list of the actual movies.
Thanks

I posted this in a separate request: https://firecore.com/forum/topic/22382

  CompArtifact wrote:

Bonus Material files make Infuse somewhat unusable because these files are displayed in the UI how as another version of the movie. This makes it impossible to tell which item listed is the actual movie. Additionally, some of the Bonus Material files are mapped to completely unrelated movie names. Plex has implemented a Local Media Assets methodology that addresses this issue. Here's a UI comparison of how Infuse and Plex handle bonus content, using the movie Annihilation as an example:

Attachment: Infuse - Annihilation - Extras: Infuse shows the main movie and the extras as 6 different versions of the movie Annihilation.

Attachment: Plex - Annihilation - Extras: Plex shows one instance of the movie and after selecting that main movie, it shows each of the featurettes as Bonus Material related to this main movie.

The way Plex handles this is through file naming and/or folder naming. All of the files for the movie are placed in the same folder. The Bonus Material files are named "descriptive file name -featurette.mkv". Alternatively, all of the extras can be placed in a sub-folder named "Featurettes". Allowable Bonus Material files names are: -behindthescenes, -deleted, -featurette, -interview, -scene, -short, -trailer. Similarly, allowable bonus material subdirectory names are Behind The Scenes, Deleted Scenes, Featurettes, Interviews, Scenes, Shorts, Trailers.

Request:
The short-term, it would be great for Infuse to simply ignore file names and sub-directories that follow the Local Media Assets naming convention. Showing these files causes a huge usability problem.

In the long-term, it would be great for Infuse to add support for Local Media Assets following the methodology used by Plex and other media players. For both Movies and for TV Shows.

Not having extras support is why I can't fully commit to Infuse, and I really, really want to.

I hadn't seen this thread and started my own thread asking how to access all of my "Extra's" I had with Plex. Of course, I found out I couldn't, and I consider that a major omission.

https://firecore.com/forum/topic/22480

But I need Infuse to optimize 24p DVD and HD-DVD video quality (and video quality is far more important to me), but I will have to use the Plex Client app to access my "Extra's". It's a workaround, but not convenient. I hope Infuse can support the Plex file/folder structure to organize and play "Extra's" in the future.

+1. It's literally my only complaint about an otherwise phenomenal piece of software.
I'm really tired of some softporn movie called deleted scenes littering my library, that or 20+ 'versions' of the same movie that are just the extras.
Add this feature and you'll be quite flawless. Hope to see this in 6.0.

Thanks!
