I mean, what’s the easiest way? I could change the directory and filenames, but that seems a bit tedious.
If you don’t want to change the directory/filename (actually their a media managers like tinymediamanger to do that). You could create a nfo with just the exact TMDB URL.
While if your folder scraper info set correctly your show should be already be picked up
I rip my DVDs to individual episodes with MakeMKV
Then I convert the resulting MPEG2 videos to MPEG4 with Handbrake to reduce the file size and also to get rid of any audio and subtitle tracks I don’t want.
Another handy tool for working with mkv files is mkvtoolnix
On another note: store your movies and TV shows in separate directories.
This is quite possibly why op isn’t scraping correctly. Good eye.
I could be wrong here, but wouldn’t I have to add something to the “advancedsettings.xml” to get the scraper to pick up “myTvShow_S1D1”, “myTvShow_S2D1”, etc. ? I’m looking at https://kodi.wiki/view/Advancedsettings.xml#.3Ctvshowmatching.3E
I’ve tried these in TV Shows and Movies, but so far I haven’t gotten anything to show up.
There is no “D1” as an episode identifier. You have to tag TV episodes as seasons and episodes to allow them to be scraped.
Thanks. It is working now after changing the name of the directories as suggested.
OK just one last thing. I mean this is working, but it would be nice if Vero could group the TV episodes by the episodes which are contained on VIDEO_TS file. for example…
In my Vero -> TV Shows, I click on my collection, and it shows the listing of the individual episodes. Then when I click on an episode, it brings up the DVD menu that contains the group of 3 or 4 episodes. Then I click on an episode from the DVD menu and it plays…
I’d like to simplify this by just clicking on the DVD group (i.e., the VIDEO_TS file). i.e.:
- Click on TV Shows -> click on MyCollection1
- Ideally, Vero would show the list of the DVD groups (based on VIDEO_TS files), and maybe show the contents of the VIDEO_TS files (e.g, Season1 - episodes a,b,c, Season1 - episodes d,e,f, etc)
- Click on one of the selections to bring up the dvd menu for that VIDEO_TS file.
I’m really happy to have gotten this far, so now I think I’m being picky, but if you understand what I’m saying and have a solution, I’d love to hear it.
Such a request would have to be made with Kodi, as that is beyond the kind of changes we make on our side. To be honest though, I think if you want it to work in a seamless manner your best bet may be to dump the DVD menu and just rip the episodes as @BanditRider explained obove.
