Conversion does not rename the movies to merge multi versions

Hello People,


What I am trying to do is to convert all my movies into smaller file for mobile devices. What I want to achieve is that emby to choose the appropriate resolution of the movie when I play it. Now what I see is that the conversion is name-ing the movies wrong. 



I read the https://support.emby.media/support/solutions/articles/44001159102-movie-naming movie nameing convention for merge multi versions but to do it manually for all the videos just not to be duplicated on media is a hard task to do


What I want is to have 1 movie poster with 2 different movie for the appropriate device and also to make emby to choose the right one. Is this possible?

Hi.  Do you store your movies in their own folders or all lumped into one?


I believe our multi-version feature requires that the movie have its own folder (named exactly like the prefix of your movie files).

you dont need this plugin if your movie have their own folder
