Only the first part of split video files can be played via DLNA

When I use the Emby client, everything works fine. Files like CD2, CD3 will appear in Additional Parts.

But when I play these videos via DLNA, only CD1 will be played, the rest will not be played. Even if I browse by folder, I can't see the CD2 and CD3 files, all videos are considered as one movie and only the first part can be played.

I have tried two folder structures :

 

#1

\FolderName

              FileName-CD1.mp4

              FileName-CD1.nfo

              FileName-CD1-poster.jpg

              FileName-CD2.mp4

              FileName-CD3.mp4
 

#2

\FolderName

              FileName-CD1.mp4

              FileName-CD1.nfo

              FileName-CD1-poster.jpg

              FileName-CD2.mp4

              FileName-CD2.nfo

              FileName-CD2-poster.jpg

              FileName-CD3.mp4

              FileName-CD3.nfo

              FileName-CD3-poster.jpg

 

I tried different Content types like Movies, Home videos & photos, Mixed content, and the result was the same, I can't play CD2, CD3 via DLNA. Besides using software to merge video files, the only solution is to put each part of the video in a separate folder. But this would result in the same movie appearing multiple times in the video library, which is not easy to manage.

So, how should I fix this issue now? If this issue cannot be solved in the current version, are there any plans to improve it in the future? Thanks.

Hi, yes you're right. We'll have to look at how to present and/or handle this in Dlna.

Even once this is done though, for the best possible experience we still suggest joining the files. Thanks.
