Was watching a movie tonight that had a 4K and a 1080p version. I initially selected 4K but after a while I realized the file was bad (stuttered). I wanted to jump to the 1080p version but I couldn’t figure out how. I eventually stopped the movie, went to my server to move the file to a Plex non-searchable location and start the movie back up. It smoothly switched over, but the process of getting there was too hard. Is there an easier way?
Not currently but a solution should be pretty close. There’s a version selection coming in the next scheduled release of Infuse.
First post being a feature request - sorry!
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 wit…

Also, if you’re using Plex’s version select you can long-press the Play button to choose a different version.
My bad, I had read in another of the OPs posts where they had dropped Plex for Infuse but they may have meant they dropped the Plex player only.
Thanks for the catch.
