Multi-Episode File Naming?

Hi !

I have a TV Show that has 2 episodes (following the official classification) merged in a single episode on the BluRay (1x01 & 1x02 in one 90mins video instead of 2 x45mins).

I used to name this “large” episode “TVShow 1x01-1x02.mkv” but the latest 7.X version doesn’t recognize this episode.

Anyone can help ?

Infuse currently doesn’t support this but I moved your post to a currently running suggestion thread for this feature. Note it is currently tagged as “Planned”.

Don’t forget that you need to click the like button on the first post in this thread to show your support for this suggestion! :wink:

Thanks for that !! (like on 1st post done !)

Remember to STAY POSITIVE like NC_Bullseye does though! It’s only been a mere 6 years since the original request, and I estimate only another 6 years to go until it changes from ‘Planned’ to ‘Postponed’. Not wait. I mean ‘Possibly Planned’, no sorry I mean ‘We built a MAC version before getting this one the best it could be, so now there’s definitely no resource’ or even ‘I read the request, what more do you want’. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

You’d be best requesting the source code and trying to write the change yourself and then submitting it to James to review. Even if you can’t code, I bet you’d be close to knowing how to in the time it’ll take to wait…

I know all of that sounds maybe a little too snarky, but let’s be honest - the Suggestions section is kind of a joke when you look at all of the top like Suggestions. It’s not user based or user driven - it’s picking the easy wins no matter how few likes they get.

I have a feeling that several items like this will not get implemented until after the switch to TMDb to prevent any fallout from changing metadata behavior. It’s important to continue adding features to increase user base, like adding the Mac app, but that does increase number of requests as well.

You’re spot on. Until someone says more than 5 people ask for it they don’t add anything like trailers, background music I can’t believe I’m still paying a subscription to be honest

This is something we are planning to integrate in an upcoming version (the tag on this thread was recently changed to ‘Planned’).

As @munpip214 mentioned, TV show fetching is getting revamped in the upcoming 7.1 release and these changes will allow for additional flexibility for additions like this one, as well as things like alternate sort orders and actor artwork.
