Collections & Groups

Collections in Infuse is a way to group sequels and other related movies together. Infuse supports automatic collections from TMDB as well as custom collections.
TMDB Collections
TMDB has many collections available that will group true sequels together (EG Iron Man, James Bond, Die Hard, etc...) TMDB collections are enabled by default, but can be disabled in the Settings > Collections and Groups 
Custom Collections
Custom collections can be used alongside or in place of TMDB collections. These are a little more versatile as they are 100% customizable and can include anything you like - such as movies, an entire TV series, or just a 
single TV season.
To add an item to a custom collection, long press on a poster and select the Collections option (or use the option available on details page). Select an existing collection or create a new one.

  • Group Movies Into Collections - Show collections instead of individual movies while browsing movie categories
  • Group TV Shows Into Collections - Show collections instead of individual series while browsing TV show categories
  • TMDB Collections - Group movies sequels into collections based on info from TMDB
  • Custom Collections - Show custom collections you have created

Including the release year in the filename is not required, but it can help get more accurate results. You can also include the TMDB or IMDb ID number in the filename (in curly brackets) to allow Infuse to find an exact match. Use a structure of {[source]-[id]}.

TV Specials

For episodes classified as ‘specials’ a season number of 00 should be used. Breaking-Bad.S00.E01.mkv Lost.S00.E01.mkv Period, space, underscore, and dash can all be used interchangeably as separator characters for both movies and TV shows.  


A miniseries is handled just like a season-based show, you simply use ‘Season 01’ as the season number.


Anime is currently classified as a TV series, and even though it doesn't usually have seasons (in the typical sense) you will need to include a season number in the filename in order for Infuse to get the correct metadata. This will also allow for Infuse to group all episodes together. For example, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations includes 200+ episodes in Season 1, so a filename like this can be used: Boruto Naruto Next Generations S01 E210.mp4 Tags for Movie Cuts, Parts, and Versions When multiple copies of a movie are present, Infuse will automatically recognize tags in the filename to differentiate between versions. These automatically recognized tags include:

Director’s Cut Extended Cut Theatrical Cut Cinematic Cut Final Cut Unrated Cut TV Cut Uncut Special Edition Ultimate Edition Black & White Wide Screen Full Screen IMAX Part x (cdX, discX, diskX, dvdX, partX, ptX)

You can also add custom tags using the ‘edition’ tag in the filename, in this format. Get Out (2017) {edition-Regular Ending}.mp4 Get Out (2017) {edition-Alternate Ending}.mp4

Tags are only visible while browsing via the Library.

Adult Content

Infuse does not currently download metadata or artwork for titles tagged as adult/explicit on TMDB, as this is not in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines. You can add your own local metadata and artwork for titles that fall into this category. Missing or Incorrect Metadata & Artwork TMDB is a community-built database with metadata and artwork in many languages. If you happen to run into a title that has missing or incorrect details and/or artwork, the relevant info can be easily added by creating a free TMDB account. Be sure to check out the contribution guidelines if you have questions. Adding artwork and metadata to TMDB is beneficial to the community, as it will be available to Infuse and many other apps. Alternatively, you can use your own local metadata and artwork, if you prefer. Content added or updated on TMDB will be available in Infuse within about 1 day.  

Overriding Artwork and Metadata


In some cases it may be useful to add your own metadata and artwork for specific titles. This may be the case when you want to see a specific image, or add details for things like home videos. Favorite Artwork Custom artwork can be set for favorites by adding an image inside the folder based favorite.
