Hi there,

First post being a feature request - sorry! Smile

Would it be possible to have multiple versions added to the naming scheme, something like this:

  • My awesome vacation (2017)
    • My awesome vacation (2017) [1080p].mkv
    • My awesome vacation (2017) [2160p].mkv

Background is that some devices in the house are not 4k-able and this way, I could select which version to play beforehand, similar to what Emby provides (see screenshot). This would also avoid having duplicate entries within the library Smile Or maybe there's another way to accomplish this?

Although not necessarily ideal, you can put different qualities in different directories and exclude those from library

I have a similar „problem“ with 3D/2D versions of the same movie. Or theatrical version and extended cut.

I just thought about the same suggestion. It would also be really helpful if you want to take a movie with you (downloading it on your ipad), but want to choose a smaller version, for example only 720p or 1080p instead of 2160p.

I had the same issue with trailers not being shown and put them in a sub folder. I will start doing the same with movies I have 3d versions of next to the normal 2d hd files.

I have similar issue with language version.

But I suspect this would be more complicated.

However, if it's possible it would be great if Infuse could scan audio tracks and display flags or text names for the languages.

I have a variety of English and Polish movies. And only some of them has double tracks inside one file.

Sometimes popular movie has at least 3 audio tracks, English (original), Polish (lector), Polish (dubbing). But sometimes I have them as two separate files, one with original English, and second, a Polish edition.

It'd be great to be able to have multiple versions (different resolutions and audio tracks) of the same movie show as one entry with an option to select which one is played without having to have Plex involved, just Infuse.

This feature was listed as "Pending" and was noted in another thread

For 5.7.4, we're working to allow multiple versions of the same movie to be grouped together. This will work whether you use Plex or not.

Those of us who are "Infuse" purists and have zero interest in running a Plex server shouldn't have to take a back seat in the features arena. Would be nice to at least get back on the Pending list for Infuse only features.

This is an issue, indeed. It happens to get two versions of the same movie - one higher quality, but original audio only and one lower quality, but with voices in my language. This mostly happens with my daughter animations, of course, but no the less - it happens :-D.

This is much needed!

I've got most of my movies encoded in 2 or more qualities. With over a 1000 movies, seeing doubles or triples creates a hell of a mess Frown This is one of the main reasons I'm still using Plex. It's much more pressing for non-tech savvy family members because for them it just looks like a bug and they can't tell what's going on.

Totally agree, in my case i have a lot of 3D movies and it would be great if i could see some "3D" tag (similar to the new "4K" in order to select the version i wanted to see.
Thumbs up !!!

Definite +1 for me. I have full ISOs in InFuse and lower-quality MP4s in Plex. It would be great to have both versions grouped together in the InFuse library, though I'm not assuming this would be simple to do!

This would be good for multi servers also to avoid having duplicate entries within the library

This would be great, especially since 4K is being more and more popular . Any updates on this @James?

Hello,

With the new icloud sync engine, can we imagine a multiple version for non-plex share even if the match is made manually ?

Thanks

100% +1. Albeit I have numerous server racks and servers, racks handling 4K and 8K lossless content for McIntosh Labs home theatre systems and Synology DS918+ servers for light/away from home streaming and most newer hardware handles H.265, yet there are times when I have various movies with DTS tracks that won’t play even with stereo audio tracks always being default. I’ve had to create subfolders and/or rename the various other versions which isn’t fun especially as I painstakingly metatag everything according to universal standards for proper local caching.

Being able to recognize the differences between files (DTS, H265, 4K, 1080P, etc) and “stacking” the films as though they were in a series, allowing the user to click on the film and see the various versions available for play would be perfect. Storage space isn’t a problem (for most), having the ability to maintain a library with various versions of the same title would be the best addition to Infuse 6.

Also, proper tagging/caching of Extras, deleted scenes, etc would be incredible. I often keep them in a subfolder for each movie yet even though they’re tagged (via Subler or another tagging/remuxing app), Infuse always mistags them and doesn’t read the included local tagged content.

I would absolute love to see how big your cache folder is... that’s one hell of a setup you have.

I'm looking for a way to differentiate between the theatrical release and director / extended cut releases. I am aware that themoviedb.org doesn't support this currently but it would be a great innovation if Infuse could manage to produce a solution for multiple versions of the same move, albeit with different run times.

AppleTV4 (32 GB), tvOS 13.2, Infuse Pro 6.2.3, NFS streaming from Netgear ReadyNAS

With all the metadata InFuse has on each file it should be possible to identify what is different about the versions -- at the moment the Plex implementation shows resolution and bitrate, but if there are significantly different running times then that would also be something to identify. There could also be file naming conventions for theatrical/extended/uncut etc.

However, I'm not sure if any progress is being made on multiple versions for non-Plex content.

Any updates on this + @James?

In my opinion, this is the biggest drawback with Infuse vs. Plex.

Multiple versions work pretty well with Plex content through Infuse (though there could be a bit more info to help tell the versions apart), is it really too hard to extend the functionality to non-Plex content?

Is anyone else interested in this feature or is just not an issue for most people?

I think if you read this thread and those referenced in it you'll see that there is quite a bit of interest in this feature both with plex and as a feature of Infuse only.
