Easiest option would be to ignore anything in the following folders, within each movie folder:

Behind The Scenes
Deleted Scenes
Featurettes
Interviews
Scenes
Shorts
Trailers
Others

(from https://support.plex.tv/articles/200220677-loc...)

That's the minimum so they don't interfere with the main listings. Better still would be to show them in their own section by each movie, but granted that's more development.

+1. I completely agree.

+1 I agree

If support for Extras is not coming soon, please at least ignore the sub folders and don’t force us to move them.

Thanks everyone.

We're going to look into what options we have here. The implementation may come in two phases. First would be ignoring videos like these during indexing, and the second would be being able to view a list of extras from the video details page.

Infuse 6 for iOS and Apple TV is now available!

Thank you james.

I'm especially thankful for the decision to split this issue into a problem fix (asap) and new feature (tba).

Thank you James. Just getting an update that it’s on the radar and hopefully getting some movement helps greatly.

+1 yes, and enable pre-roll videos.

I'd love to see more plex features added.

your lifetime Plex membership is $150 and needs (unless they changed it) a Plex media server to work so no movies on holiday or during commuting
Infuse otoh works on its own and can also access media servers
the library functionality can be and is continuously being improved, developers respond to issues and fix them, all that's needed is communication and some patience

With Plex Pass, you can individually allow to Sync media to mobile clients.
Also, this request for trailers and extra has been discussed for at least 2 years

I agree it takes them very long. I only discovered the problem recently after I updated to version 6, posted it as an issue, was sent here by a moderator and discovered it hasn't been looked at for almost two years. I then contacted james who looked into the issue and promised they'd fix my issues with unwanted featurettes displayed and also add support for these extras. I can understand how such issue will be left unnoticed, there are very many threads with suggestions. But after I contacted him he did take the time and tried to help the best he could. So I still believe proper communication could have this solved months ago.

Hi james, could you share any background information from development, how’s the implementation of the first phase going?
