How to manage multiple movie parts?
#1
I'm using EMM to manage my movies for YAMJ on a PCH.
For single movies, all is fine, but I'm now struggling on movies with multiple parts.

As recommended, I'm using a proper directory/file structure like:
- Movies
- Title (Year)
- Title.ext

But now, there is a movie with 2 parts, eg. Title 1.mkv and Title 2.mkv.

According to the file naming conventions for YAMJ, I tried different ways to rename the movie files:
- Title [part1].mkv / Title [part2].mkv
- Title CD1.mkv / Title CD2.mkv
- Title - 1.mkv / Title - 2.mkv

None of them is recognized as a movie containing 2 files. As well, the auto renaming feature is always rename part 1 to Title.mkv.

The final result should be 1 entry in EMM/YAMJ, referring to 2 files to be played in the right sequence.

Any hints or recommendations are very appreciated.

Try to have a dot before the cd section

Mine is named like this and works both in Ember and Kodi
Title.cd1.ext
Title.cd2.ext

Thanks for your hint. I tried it also with the keyword part instead of cd and it works fine in YAMJ. It offers now to play all or each part.

However, Poster, Fanart and NFO files are also renamed to "Title.CD1" or "Title.part1", what's not really logically, but it's quite cosmetic...

Thanks again.

What I do and has always worked for me is this:

'folder' 12 Angry Men (1957)

'file' 12 Angry Men (1957) CD1.avi
'file' 12 Angry Men (1957) CD2.avi

So having these 2 file in a single folder will get you a single nfo etc
Confusion is just a state of mind.

We use the same system in Ember like Kodi does: Link (goto point 4.1)

We use the same default regex for single, multi and splitted episode file names like Kodi and you can modifie it in the same way like for Kodi.
You can see this in Settings => TV Shows => Files and Sources => Regex (tab)

The only different is the regex escaping in our regex system. It's always the best way to check new regexe on http://www.regex101.com to get a proper escaped regex.

Thanks Dan, doesn't seem to work for me though

Files
Survivor - S06E14 - ...And Then There Were Four.part1.avi
Survivor - S06E14 - ...And Then There Were Four.part2.avi

TV Show multipart Regex setting
Code:
^[-_ex]+([0-9]+(?:(?:[a-i]|\.[1-9])(?![0-9]))?)

Action
Creates an NFO and thumb for each file and separate database entries in Ember

Thats not correct. Movie and Episodes use different file naming, but Ember use the same like Kodi:

Survivor - S06E14.1 - ....avi
Survivor - S06E14.2 - ....avi

Thanks Dan, but no joy there either Sad

Filenames pre-scrape
Code:
Survivor - S06E14.1 - ...And Then There Were Four.avi
Survivor - S06E14.2 - ...And Then There Were Four.avi
Files post-scrape
Code:
Survivor - S06E14.1 - ...And Then There Were Four-thumb.jpg
Survivor - S06E14.1 - ...And Then There Were Four.avi
Survivor - S06E14.1 - ...And Then There Were Four.nfo
Survivor - S06E14.2 - ...And Then There Were Four-thumb.jpg
Survivor - S06E14.2 - ...And Then There Were Four.avi
Survivor - S06E14.2 - ...And Then There Were Four.nfo

Ember picks them up a separate items

Your example.."Survivor"

thetvdb site is only showing that episode as a single entry/episode:

http://thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seriesid=...1295&lid=7

So maybe then ember is till seeing episode 14.1 and 14.2 just as episode 14?

I can only guess that if your episode is spilt into 2 files then either join them using some sort of software package or once the nfo for each part as been created in ember then manually go back into ember change the nfo so the title reflects Part 1 and Part 2 in the title.

Hi FlashPan,
Yes it is a single episode that I have in 2 split video files unfortunately.
What I am trying to achieve is that Ember sees it as one episode and then Kodi would too.
I tried joining it together with a few different apps, but it's DivX video and WMA audio and the joined file never works properly Sad

I think you need to have the .1. and .2. right before the extension (.avi) and other than that, use the same filename for the parts.

Tried that too, no dice.

Downloaded a trial version of a DivX joiner - seemed to work.

Thanks all for the suggestions Smile

That result is correct and the same like Kodi handle with splitted episodes.
Kodi do not "merge" the episodes to one entry like in movies. Bad, but that works.
