Have two parts of a movie (CD01 and CD02) appear as one?

This is a very old request I made over 4 years ago: Multi-Disk DVD RIps - #4 by NC_Bullseye

I’ve many “special/extended edition” sets that need to just be grouped together to avoid redundancy. Each is from a DVD with embedded chapters, so we don’t want to lose those. With a flatter design in mind, I worked this simple example up:

Using your header as a guide, I’m suggesting this (see image attachment):

  • (example; Return of the King) A transparent marker on the bottom marking the number of disks for the single movie
  • (example: Fellowship of the Ring) When hovered over, the circle expands to the (1|2) graphic, so you can see what's been viewed
  • When selected (not shown) you get a dimmed screen asking which disk to start, with the (1|2) letting you to swipe left or right to select the correct disk image and it begins as normal (resume, start disk)

It’s really straightforward, but it would let us manage multiple-disk movies more efficiently.

As the title says, these 2 suggestions would make Infuse more complete as far as Plex integration, especially the multi-file movies. Please add these to future Infuse updates.

Multi-file movie support is really important. Without it, certain films cannot be fully watched.

@james, is there any update for multi-file support?

I’m sure you know already but if you don’t here’s their roadmap

Yes I’ve seen that. Just asking for an update since multi-file support is not listed in that post.

Hoping @james can chime in here and give an eta for multi-part movie support. Its not listed in the Upcoming Features thread. Any update?

So just got the update and STILL no support for multi-part movies! How can this app not have a basic feature like this? I’ve asked multiple times for and eta since it’s not listed in the “Upcoming Features” post at the top of this forum. Is this even on the radar to be implemented? If not, I’ll just stick with my Shield since it already does everything I want/need and cancel my subscription. @james, anything??

Again @james, any update on multi-file support? Would be cool to at least get some kind of feedback. You already included multi-versions, why not include multi-file? Please respond. I need to know so I can decide whether to keep supporting Infuse with my monthly subscription or not.

There are some great features in the pipeline. But without support for multi-file movie it is only possible to watch the first 50% of certain items.

Whilst seamlessly joining files together during playback would be ideal, simply allowing the two or more files to be selected and played would be sufficient.

@james, anything?

Which one are you checking on? Collections or multi part movies?

If it’s the movies are you referring to movies that were multi part on TV or ones that used to be put on multiple DVD disks?

With two different requests it’s a bit confusing and may hinder them getting support since some people may want one but not the other.

Either would be cool, but I’m more concerned about multi-file movies, movies that are put on multiple discs (Lord of the Rings Extended versions for instance). Infuse is awesome on the ATV, but without that feature it’s a pain to watch specific movies. I can always resort to using my Shield TV, which is fine, but that means I have to move it out of my room and into my living room if I want to watch it on my surround sound system.

Any way you can forward this on to @james since I’ve yet to get any response? MrMC supports this feature so I don’t see how it could be that difficult to add. If it won’t be added, I’ll just ditch Infuse and use MrMC.

I am a pro user.

I have the blueray collections to have multiple movies contained in one same file. I also have a movie seperated in two disks.

I want to be able to organise these files in the database to ether consolidate or to seperate them.

Please add this function.

How is support for multi-file movies progressing for Infuse? A recent update to the Plex App on TVOS has seen multi-file movies supported. (The Plex App has also seen better playback of media files directly on the Apple TV without transcoding.)

Just to be that guy, but couldn’t you just merge the files together, or upgrade the movies? The last time multi-part files were popular was when DVD rips were a thing, and that was like 700MB years ago. If you don’t have a lot, maybe consider auditing your library for movies like this. I had a couple dozen like this that I acquired during the Pleistocene era, but eventually donated them to the Smithsonian and acquired new ones.

You can use mkvtoolnix to split or combine movies. I’ve done the merge with LotR and had no problems. Haven’t ever seen multiple movies on a single title before. Usually each movie has an individually selectable title. But perhaps you don’t have the disc to rip individual titles, so try mkvtoolnix.

Thank you for your reply.

I am the collector of BDMV or Iso file. Some titles such as Disney may release a blueray with a few movies in a bundle.

Do you know any software to split them up?
