"Aired before/after" for Special Episodes

On Emby and TVDB, there is a feature to assign position for specific special episode, making them shown on the TV-Aired Season playlists after or before a TV-Aired episode, so that people can playback seamlessly because they don’t have to go to Season 0 anymore.

Hope Infuse will add support for this feature in the future updates.

That would sure go a long way to help determine when and where specials fall in a story arc.

It might be easier directly utilize the information provided by Emby sever

I don’t run Emby or any other server. This would only be useful to me as an Infuse feature without any additional servers.

So, I reported a few times about Emby and specials, season 0. I had asked about acquiring Emby metadata regarding where to properly show a special in a season. Emby has metadata saying show this episode before season 4 episode 8 as an example. When looking at season 4 in Emby, you will see specials intermixed in season 4 episodes. Infuse should respect that ordering

As it stands now, if I go into season 0, episodes are doubled. Most likely because they show up twice in Emby. Using the example above, it would show up in season 4 and 0. Attaching an Infuse screen showing this problem.

I wish you could properly handle in season specials. And, fix the duplicates.

I am hoping for this support as well. I have a lot of TV shows where the specials should be ordered in the story arc. This is one of the main reasons I use Emby over Plex, even though I own both. I have been using Kodi with the Emby plugin for years and it handles special ordering flawlessly. I’ve been loving the Emby and Infuse compatibility though and this is pretty much the only thing that keeps me from retiring my Shield and Vero. Everything else with Infuse and Emby have been a flawless experience!
