For example, how could I add something like this ? https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/328112-...alt-disney

Its a two disc set, ( i can either make it dvd folder/file structure or ISO), but its multi part sections on DVD.

I tried adding your movie using the DVD preserved format and, for some reason, I could not get it to work. It kept scraping the movie "Video". But as soon as I removed the name extension Disc1 and Disc2, it scraped the movie ok. Log if someone wants to see the scrape... https://pastebin.com/cups2wkm

Walt Disney Treasures - Your Host, Walt Disney (2006) Disc1\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.IFO
Walt Disney Treasures - Your Host, Walt Disney (2006) Disc2\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.IFO

I then tried the iso format named as follows

Walt Disney Treasures - Your Host, Walt Disney (2006) Disc1\Walt Disney Treasures - Your Host, Walt Disney (2006) Disc1.iso
Walt Disney Treasures - Your Host, Walt Disney (2006) Disc2\Walt Disney Treasures - Your Host, Walt Disney (2006) Disc2.iso

And it worked as expected.

thanks!, will try the iso format

how exactly would that work? how would it know to jump from disc1 to disc2 when ISO is made up of few "segments" with menus?

Hmmm, couldn't give you a definitive answer as I have never used iso. I simply used some empty dummy files when I tested. But you raise a valid point I did not consider.

The only other alternative, to avoid the disk menu interfering with the transition, would be to rip to a single file like *.mkv. Saved as above but replacing .iso with whatever format you use.

Hopefully someone that uses this process can offer some assistance.

Also, remember to enable enable "Combine split video items" in Settings>Media Settings>Videos
