Hi all.

Just wondering how I would go about having 2 files (say "Movie Name-A" and "Movie Name-B") which are the same movie, split into 2 files appear as one object in the Plex client?

I've tried "Fix Incorrect Match" in the PMS Manager, but I cannot seem to get it to "ignore" the second part of the movie and just have them treated as one. Do I need to create a playlist of some kind?

Also I've deleted another movie from the place where the file is physically stored, but the thumbnail still appears in the Media Player. How do I force deletion of the thumbnail? what about deleting something from the library where the file still exists?

Thanks!
Brad

Dang it. I was searching on the wrong keywords.

-pt1, -pt2, -pt3 etc

I'd delete my own thread or move it to the Windows Client forum, but I don't have the rights.

Stacked files are not supported by all players, so you might be better off using something like MKVMerge and re-muxing them into a single file. As it's not re-encoding anything so it only takes a minute or 2 per "stack"
