Multi part movies still won't play in iOS or ATV

I haven't been able to get any multi part movies to play correctly in iOS or ATV4. I know this has been an issue for others but I was hoping someone found away to make it work. All of the multi part movies are named as suggested by Plex. The 1st part plays but not the 2nd. Anybody have any ideas?

    I just updated my qnap server today and noted that field length for renaming files is shorter than some of my names. Shorten name on the files and the files still did not play correctly. Will test on a non IOS system.

    Definitely seems to be iOS related. I've seen others post about this before. I was just wondering if anyone had come up with a solution. Thanks for replying.

    I have the same problem with a TV shows with 2 parts.
    I run Plex on Android TV and it will only play the fist part.

    When playing the same TV show on the web interface it works...

    Any ideas ?
