Video stacking

This feature is only available in Pro edition.

With the video stacking feature on you can browse and view your split video as if it were one video file. This is useful if you have DVD-like file structure or some videos split into parts.

Please note that depending on the file type stacking may require the file to be transcoded.

DVD video stacks

Serviio supports the standard DVD file structure stack, with the files being named like:

  • VTS_01_1.VOB
  • VTS_01_2.VOB
  • VTS_02_9.VOB

As an example, to have a split DVD being shown as a single video, you could name the file like:

  • My Video/video_ts/VTS_01_1.VOB
  • My Video/video_tsVTS_01_2.VOB
  • My Video/video_ts/VTS_01_3.VOB

Custom file stacks

Serviio can stack multiple related videos into one if they are of the same type (codec, resolution, etc.) and their file names include one of these keywords:

  • part#
  • cd#
  • dvd#
  • pt#
  • disk#
  • disc#

As an example, these 2 files would be considered parts of a single video stack:

  • MyVideo part1.avi
  • MyVideo part2.avi
Please note that in order to stack this kind of videos Serviio will have to transcode them into one.
