Are you sure you're following the guide? I don't see a dash ( - ) in your example after the year and before the version name in your example.

This should work in a folder named: Manhunter (1986)

Manhunter (1986) - Theatrical.ext

Thank you
I succeeded

Why now that I'm switching between the directors cut to theartical version
The details of the movie do not change such as: runtime , video, audio

Because the Emby team hasn't prioritized fully supporting multi-cut movies as multiple versions, even though their guide recommends it. They say the multi version feature was only intended for different resolutions/qualities of the *same* cut of a movie, even though, again, their guide recommends using it for multi-cut movies.

In addition to what you pointed out, there's also issues with tags and Parental Controls that leads to secondary versions being available to users that shouldn't be able to see them.

Here's some feature requests for full multi-cut support you can vote for by adding a 'like':
 

 

 

 

The alternative is to treat each cut like a separate movie, but this has the side effect of Emby treating each cut as the same movie throughout the system. So, if you watch one cut, they all get marked as watched. If you partially watch one, they all will show up separately in continue watching. Since they all have different runtimes, the continue watching/watched mechanisms can get confused and decide you've finished a longer cut before you've actually reached the end.

hi again,
I try again with the movie alien (1979)
And it doesn't work
I wrote one file as alien (1979)
And the second file alien (1979) - Director's Cut
And emby recognizes it as two separate movies

Try naming first movie something like

alien (1979) - Theatrical

or

alien (1979) - Original,

rescan.

Just name the files however you like and that's what will get displayed.

As the rule says

Each version must begin with the folder name, followed by " - "

So as long as translation applies to folder and file you should be fine.

I will assume the Alien example above is a typo

/Movies

     /Alien (1979)

         /Alien (1979) - Theatrical.mkv

          /Alien (1979) - Director's Cut.mkv

You can edit the displayed name in the metadata to be whatever you want.

Luke.  There is a possibility that once a movie version is selected for viewing.  So in the thumbnail image under continue viewing, will it be possible to associate a different image?  For example, to associate images with versions, so that the extended version will have a different image from the original version.  And the same goes for the poster, once an extended version is selected, the poster will change to a picture with the extended version.  I hope I explained correctly...
