Multi-part movies

Hi,

 

Moving from SageTV on windows  to Emby on QNAP NAS and so far loving it.

 

One little niggle I cannot get around. 

 

Those pesky extended editions of LOTR in two parts.

 

I feel I have followed all the naming conventions but  cannot get Emby to play anything but the first part.

 

Other posts on this topic seem to involve .mkv files and joining them.

 

Should this this multi-part naming work? Am I doing something wrong here?

 

I'm using 4.3.1.0

 

Michael

Yes joining the files would be best - dont have to be a MKV could still be a single mp4

 

IIRC with files stacking/multi part - you have to pick the second file from a drop down - might be wrong as its been a long time since i tried it

In the web app you have to manually select the second part after the first one ends. Our other apps either behave similarly or haven't implemented it yet. We'll get there, but for the best experience possible I would suggest joining the files.
