1.Note that plex default multi-part auto-detection is based on media features (e.g. Exact same resolution, same video codec, exact same audio codec, etc). If you to be to test with real 2 files, Avatar.720p.mp4 and Avatar.1080p.mp4, then this would be 2 movies (as protest to 1 movie v 2 parts) and also thus layout to the exact same location path. Thus plex walk not support "multiple versions every movie" by default.However, you deserve to modify your style to include additional details to the document path that renders each movie version distinctive (e.g. Through adding video clip resolution or audio language)

plex.derive() can be supplied to insert added information after the document name but before the caption language suffix and file extension.

keep in mind that File.derive() is totally unrelated to the multi-part auto-detection. If you"re having problems with the latter, that"d be a separate issue. Multi-part auto-detection is right now based top top media development year | resolution | video clip codec | audio codec therefore multi-part auto-detection false positives are feasible if you have multiple different versions the the exact same movie the look the same as soon as only looking in ~ media production year | resolution | video clip codec | audio codec however perhaps use a various audio language. Girlfriend can successfully turn turn off multi-part auto-detection by configuring trident-gaming.net to no probe record contents (see Optimizations because that Remote record Systems) but this might or may not occupational well because that you depending on how documents are at this time organized. I guess the default fallback multi-part auto-detection would certainly be just based on the parent folder, which might or may not work well for you. Separating each movie version right into its very own movie folder with some tags included to the end of the movie folder name could be a good idea too. But the plex does not account well because that this specific target folder structure requirements.2."Featurettes" "Interviews" "Deleted" etc are normally ignored as far as trident-gaming.net is concerned. The amc manuscript will preemptively overlook them. Not certain what the GUI does. The basic answer is the these extras aren"t support well, but in some relatively easy instances it might be possible to make it work-related to some level with a clever approach.
