Questions and suggestions about how to prepare your media and name your media sources.

 

For official updates: April 23rd, 2015

 

Q: How I can be sure that the VidOn Server will accurately scrape all of my media?

A: The VidOn Server will accurately scrape meta data for your media that is properly named:

 

1. Movie File Naming

1.1 Single Movie File:

Use the official movie name for your file.

Example: Movie Name.mkv

 

1.2 Segmented Movie File (Multi-part movies)

For a movie divided into multiple files, be sure to include the part number at the end of the file name in the following format: _pt1, _pt2

 

The following may also be used: _cdX, _ptX, _partX, _discX, _dvdX (where X represents the file part number).

 

Example: Movie Name _pt1.mp4, Movie Name _pt2.mp4

 

2. TV Show File Naming:

2.1 Supported TV Show naming conventions

Show Name s01e12 (s: season number, e: episode number)

Show Name_s01_e12 (s: season number, e: episode number)

Show Name_s01_d01 (s: season number d: disc number)

Show Name_1x12 (1: season number, 12: episode number)

Show Name_season1.ep12 (season1: season number, ep12: episode number)

Show Name_s01.ep12 (s01: season number, ep12: epsiode number)

Show Name_season1.pt.iv (season1: season number, pt.iv: part number)

Show Name_s01.pt.iv (s01: season number, pt.iv: part number)

 

2.2 Naming General TV series file:

Name your files following the 2.1 naming conventions.

 

2.3 Single File Containing Multiple Episodes:

The files still follow the same naming conventions as above, but in the case of multiple episodes, the first and last episode of the file must be in the file name.

 

Example: Show Name_s01e01-e04.mkv

Then all four episodes will have their contents scrapped.

 

For TV Series Ripped From a Disc:

The files will follow the same naming conventions as above, but instead of including the season and episode number, the file name should include the season and disc number.

 

Example: Show Name_s01_d01.iso, Show Name_s01_d02.iso

Then you may choose play either d01 or d02.

 

3. DVD and Blu-ray file naming rules

3.1 Standard DVD and Blu-ray Image File

Use the official movie name for your file.

Example: Movie Name.iso

 

3.2 DVD and Blu-ray Movie Folder File

Use the official movie name for your movie folder.

Example: D:/Movie Folder Name/…

 

3.3 Segmented Movie Files (Multi-part movies)

Please refer to 1.2 for the naming conventions of segmented files. Bear in mind not to change the file type at the end of the file name (.iso for example).

 

3.4 Single DVD and BD File Containing Multiple Episode

Please refer to section 2.3 for the naming conventions of files containing multiple episodes.

Example: TV Show Name_s01_d01.iso, Show Name_s01_d02.iso

        D:/TV Show Folder Name_s01/… and D:/TV Show Folder Name_s02/…

Please let us know if you have any suggestions on how to optimize Meta Data collection on the VidOn Server :)

Yes, this is a great suggestion.

 

Filebot will act to automatically name all of your video files following standard XBMC/Kodi conventions.

 

Use this as opposed to renaming everything yourself.

For more advanced file naming schemes you will have to use the command line of the program to input your own code, but it is much simpler than it sounds, you can check out this page and this page for some simple code you can copy and paste into the program to have it name files exactly the way that you want.
