    is there a way to add alternate versions of one film, that can be made a part of one file in itunes?

    for example, i don't want 2 separate versions of the same film showing up in itunes separately.

    doesn't itunes extras combine multiple 'goodies' from one film to one file? can i manipulate itunes to do something similar but make 2 films one file? with an option to play the alternate version inside the film? (referring to iTunes 11 here)

    It's possible you would need to know how to write a fair bit of code - no GUI for iTunes Extras yet.

    Very good question since a lot of times you'll get unrated and rated in the same BD set. iTunes still has a lot of work to do to come close to replacing BDs. The video quality is pretty much there, and I like the early digital releases. But that's about where the advantages end. I could go on a rant for years about the audio quality when using a sound system.

    that can work, i tested it, its not the most ideal since the only way to play the sd 'version' in this itunes 11, is to right click the video and click play sd. wouldve been a nice option inside the iOS drop view.

    Yea for me I prefer having different cover art for Director's Cut versus Theatrical - it's also nice to see that I have a different version - in the physical realm I could visually see I have either a boxed set or multiple copies of the movie with separate purchases and in iTunes I prefer having the separate entries.
