I have to agree with the OP on this one. I don't use versions for different qualities/codecs, I use it for different versions of the movie - i.e. theatrical, directors cut, final cut, open matte, Once upon a Deadpool etc... To have all these in collections would make a mess of my collections as all my collections are collections of different movies (e.g. sequels or dvd boxsets or by director), not collections of the different versions of the same movie. So, while I don't use the download feature for movies, it would be nice to be able to choose exactly which version I'd like to download (if I ever do).
This is maybe even the best example I've read so far! Because: in the Emby documentation there's an explanation for using the "Multi-version movies" (https://github.com/M...-version-movies
). Here it says that you can use it for different versions (e.g. Director's Cut, Extended Edition) of the movie.
For streaming you just select the desired movie version and press play!
So how will you be able to select the correct version of the movie if you want to download it?
Let say I want to download the Theatrical Cut because my flight is only 2 hours? But I also have the Extended Edition and they both are 5500kbs.
