How to import TV show of just 1 episode...?
« on: July 26, 2015, 06:17:25 am »

Havent figured this one out yet...
Or, on the same note, is there a way to make a documentary category under "video" in the file tree? I have these in  my "movies" but would like to put them under "shows".
Thanx

For movie length docos, initially I leave the media sub-type as "Movie", do a a Get Movie & TV Info meta-data scrape and then change the media sub-type to "Educational". I've got a separate view set up to keep these docos away from the fictional offerings.

If the doco is a TV series (i.e. media sub-type "TV Show"), then I name it to line up with the naming/numbering convention of theTVDB.com and that way I can do a scrape with a Get Movie & TV Info function and pull in the meta-data.

That said, some of theTVDB entries cover a single documentary sometimes. One to play by ear.

Check the Wiki for more info, such as:
