Recognize tags in filenames for cuts/parts

Understood. Maybe in combo with the curly brackets? {DC}

  • I subsequently remembered another category: Alternate Ending

Will this work with Plex/Emby server?

Television Cut would be a pretty essential one, I think. Not only for extremely long movies like Fanny & Alexander or Scenes from a Marriage where the longest version is often advertised as the Television Cut, but also for movies that have historically been re-edited for runs on television to please the censors - many of which include alternative scenes.

On second thought, the short form “TV Cut” might be a bad idea as that could also stand for Tuvalu e.g.

Already feared that might be the case. Thought I throw it out there in case it might be able to easily check against a list of languages and then see whether the next word is “Version”, but it’s not too tragic either way. I’ll survive seeing credits in the wrong language.

I actually thought about the Black and White-Edition of Parasite and the Fade-To-Black-and-White-Edition of Sympathy for Lady Vengeance. But the second case is too specific and I’d probably still be able to differentiate them if it was just called Black and White-Edition as well.

When using Jellyfin, Emby, or Plex Infuse pull details fetched by the server instead of reading the filenames directly - so unfortunately this new logic will not be available for those sources.

So that means, if Jellyfin is the source we’ll still be restricted to whichever version Infuse picks up on first?

This would be a separate feature and something we plan to support in a future version. You can follow this thread.

Can we also get tag recognition for 3D titles? Both Side by Side (SBS) and Top over Bottom (TOB).

Also, if I have the following scenario, would Infuse show four versions? Two for resolution, two for cut?


Maybe you’ll get dynamically adjusting options as I briefly sketched out in the image I posted here that I describe as working in a manner analogous to shopping for clothing or consumer electronics on Amazon …

Basically, to watch a one of your films you’d need to pair up two available options (as you need to choose both an in-stock shirt size and in-stock color (at the size) to add a t-shirt to your shopping cart.

But like shopping on Amazon, the buttons change dynamically as you go … so you can hit either the button for “extra-large” or the button for “blue”, and the rest of the buttons update based on what’s available. Select “4K” and the edits you have in 4K are highlighted. Or select “Director’s Cut” and whichever resolutions you have that version of the film in become highlighted. Pick two, add to cart (push play), and go watch your movie!

Or maybe it won’t be anything like that at all. lol. Someone taking part in the beta probably has an idea. :upside_down_face:

Maybe at some point, though 3D seems to be fading out as a thing. For now, you could add these as an Edition tag.

You mean you have 4 individual files?

  • Alien.1979.Theatrical.720p.mkv
  • Alien.1979.Theatrical.1080p.mkv
  • Alien.1979.Directors.Cut.720p.mkv
  • Alien.1979.Directors.Cut.1080p.mkv

If so, then yes. Here’s what you’d see with those 4 files.

Tell that to James Cameron.

Excellent. Very excited for this !!!

Here’s an updated list of all the automatically recognized tags.

  • Director’s Cut
  • Extended Cut
  • Theatrical Cut
  • Cinematic Cut
  • Final Cut
  • Unrated Cut
  • TV Cut
  • Uncut
  • Special Edition
  • Ultimate Edition
  • Black & White
  • Wide Screen
  • Full Screen
  • IMAX
  • Part x (cdX, discX, diskX, dvdX, partX, ptX)

This is how the tags will appear in English. These will be localized for all the available languages for a more native experience.


These will need to be in the { } brackets correct? Not just part of the file name?

No, these would be detected without the brackets. In the bracket you can put whatever you want.

I believe he wrote these will be parsed automatically (without brackets), and any other text not so treated can be included using the {edition-TEXT} format.

I thought the automatically recognized would not have to have the word “edition-_” on it.

There probably should be some other limiter as to where Infuse looks for these if not the {} brackets.

Maybe look for these words only after the year in the file name?

No brackets or ‘edition’ text required for this this particular list of items.

The edition tag can be used in addition to this if you want to specify other arbitrary tags, or tweak how the tags appear.

Also, these only kick in if you have multiple versions of the same item. If your library consists of single copies of everything (which is probably most people), this new feature will have no impact.


Just was looking at a few possible problem areas

And also movies like The Hunger Games where the words “Part 1” are actual parts of the name.

Titles which have ‘Part 1’ as part of the actual title are ignored here. This applies to things like Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 1.

If you have an item title that matches one of the tag items it will not affect matching.
