Extra Movie features

  • 1 especially because the missing support means that, if I want to use Infuse, I have to move all the EXTRA files that I had put in place following the Plex scheme.

(in reality I already did since I much prefer Infuse as a player over Plex app, but is far from ideal)

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

+1 (I assume Bonus Content / Movie Extras / Special Features is a dupe?)
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.

I posted this in a separate request: Request for Support of Bonus Content - implementing the standard Plex Local Media Assets methodology

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.

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.


Really the only thing keeping me from using infuse 100%. I am not willing to move all my extras folders into another folder. Really hoped this would be added to 6. Maybe some day.

Could we please get someone from staff (not just forum moderator, as helpful as they are they can’t really help here)?

I believe Firecore tries to give good customer support and this one is really essy. The only explanation for them to ignore this for almost 2 years is that they were not notified about this issue.

Edit: I’ve contacted james directly using pm and I’m pretty sure he’ll have a look at this and try to help us. Even a simple filter like “ignore all paths where directory name equals to Featurettes or Extras would help greatly. I can’t stand seeing the cover of “Deleted Scenes” 50 times in my library.


I’m confused. I’m using Plex Server on a Mac with an AppleTV 4K. I put all my “extras” into a Folder named Featurettes (per Plex rules) and none of those extras show up in Infuse. I wonder what we are doing differently? Are you not using the Plex Server?

In fact, my only complaint about Infuse is that there is no way for me to get to those “extras” except to switch to the ATV4K Plex Client. I would like Infuse to add those extras to its movie info/start screen the way the Plex Client does.

People have been asking for this to be dealt with for years. I was personally hoping this would be solved upgrading to 6. Fingers crossed this gets addressed in the near future and not on the 7 release roadmap.

Would you clarify please? Do you see the “extras” in a Plex Featurettes folder and don’t want to, or are you complaining like me that there is no way to see them using Infuse?

Nope, I use SMB (because infuse does not support plex home users) and there is no way to hide or not scan these folders.

I don’t want anything to do with plex… I’m asking for either a way for Infuse to handle featurettes, extra’s, etc or a way to hide them from showing up in Infuse. It’s a pretty terrible user experience the way it is now. Which is either where you see multiple entries (Some of my movies have 10+ extras) for 1 movie in my list, or even worse when the metadata grabs completely random data for a file. My recently added list is filled with one movie and all it’s extras… Which is annoying to say the least.

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

Behind The Scenes
Deleted Scenes

(from Local Media Assets - Movies | Plex Support)

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.


OK. I’m sure you have other reasons not to use a Plex Server, but if you did use Infuse with a Plex Server you won’t see the featurettes, extra’s, etc in Infuse.
