Recommended Posts

Hi, Im not sure i'm posting in the right section off the forum its actually the first time I do so. I was just wonderring if by any chance there was a way to add multiple title to a same movie. 

 

In simple, I have some movie in a bylingual version and for some of them I reffer too their title in french and some other in english. Would it be possible to add 2 tittle to a movie in order that when i'm searching for it in my searchbar, event if its sorted name is his original one in english I may still find it with his french name.

As a variation on this original request, perhaps you could use some some of a delimiter (like a pipe |)

to add multiple titles in the original title field.

 

Also it would be great if you can see the original title (as an option) on the movie's screen below the "real" title in a smaller font.

If you allowed multiple titles, then perhaps you could show all of them.

What about "searching|"?

Actually there is a "simple" although somewhat non-intuitive solution that allows a movie to appear in multiple places in the alpha listing of a library. Simply make a collection of one movie named the way you want.

 

That is you could have collections named:

A-Collection

G-Collection

M-Collection

Y-Collection

and each collection could contain the movie:

MyMovieUnderManyNames

then it would show multiple places and be searchable [i think] and pressing play on the collection would play the movie.

 

At least I use that for a few movies and it works fine. However I do not ever use search so I do not know for sure if search works.
