    We noticed that some people have some problems when scraping TV shows. Please provide your directory tree and the language you use on HT4 in this thread. Or send to service@zidoo.tv. We'll check it.
    Thanks.
    14 July updated test version.
    http://apidl.zidoo.tv/app/zidoo_poster_RTD1619_v4.0.86.apk

    Anyone can test this version for TV scraping.
    Any questions can be feedback in this thread.

  2. I've had a variety of shows I had to manually match, the latest being Rick and Morty Season 5 getting it's own entry in HT despite one for Rick and Morty Seasons 1 -4 already existing. Folders look like this and HT language is english:

    Rick and Morty
    -Rick and Morty Season 1
    -Rick and Morty Season 2
    -Rick and Morty Season 3
    -Rick and Morty Season 4
    --Rick and Morty.S04E01.[Bluray-1080p][8bit][x264][EAC3 5.1]-BTN.mkv
    --Rick and Morty.S04E01.[Bluray-1080p][8bit][x264][EAC3 5.1]-BTN.mkv
    --Rick and Morty.S04E01.[Bluray-1080p][8bit][x264][EAC3 5.1]-BTN.mkv
    --etc.
    -Rick and Morty Season 5
    --Rick and Morty.S05E01.[WEBDL-1080p][8bit][x264][AAC 2.0]-BTN.mkv

    I use the same format for all my shows and some of them work fine, like Justified and the Sopranos but others require manual editing.

    The same as above:

    TV Show Name:
    -Season 1
    --S01E01.mkv

    With NFO and pictures:
    TV Show Name:
    -tvshow.nfo
    -season01-poster.jpg
    -Season 1
    --Season.nfo
    --TV.Show.Name.S01E01.mkv
    --TV.Show.Name..S01E01.nfo
    --TV.Show.Name.S01E01-thumb.jpg

    I even seem to get problems with identification with NFOs. Problem I have is that complete scanning works with NFO, but when a new Episode is added it doesn't reliably identify the added episode. I dont have much time right now so I didn't look into that any further, yet. Maybe somebody else with the same problem?

    All NFO's are created by Jellyfin.

  8. I assume it's not that simple because if it were it would have already been done but would it not be possible to use the code from the Kodi scrapers for HT since it's open source?

    Kodi is written in C++ and HT4 is Java.

    I can't stress enough that a great solution would be to use Plex, Emby/Jellyfin as the backend and let them do all the matching and use HT as the front end. This is exactly what Infuse for example does and it works beautifully. It syncs playback, matching is great and especially useful if you have devices playing from that one server.
    Plus I really like the look of HT in contrast to the Emby/Jellyfin apps.

  11. All my shows are ordered like this, no typos or anything since naming is done by sonarr rather than by hand:

    Show Name
    -Show Name Season 1
    --Show Name.S01E01.[Bluray-1080p][8bit][x264][AC3 5.1]-iNTENTiON.mkv
    --Show Name.S01E02.[Bluray-1080p][8bit][x264][AC3 5.1]-iNTENTiON.mkv
    --etc.
    -Show Name Season 2
    --Show Name.S02E01.[WEBDL-720p][8bit][h264][AC3 5.1]-NTb.mkv
    --Show Name.S02E01.[WEBDL-720p][8bit][h264][AC3 5.1]-NTb.mkv
    --etc.
    A Different Show Name
    -A Different Show Name Season 1
    --A Different Show Name.S01E01.[Bluray-1080p][8bit][x264][AC3 5.1]-SA89.mkv
    --A Different Show Name.S01E02.[Bluray-1080p][8bit][x264][DTS 5.1]-iNGOT.mkv
    --etc.

    I just did a full scan of the TV folder, default settings, and this is the result:

    UNMATCHED:
    the americans season 6
    banshee season 1
    banshee season 2
    banshee season 3
    barry season 1
    barry season 2 all but episodes 1 and 2
    the boys season 1
    the boys season 2
    dark season 1 (e7-10)
    dark season 2
    dragon ball kai season 2
    frontline multiple seasons
    mad men season 7
    manhunt season 1
    silicon valley season 5
    silicon valley season 6

    ERRORS IN MATCHING:
    deadwood season 1 episode 12 matches to some chinese show
    brooklyn 99 one entry for seasons 1, 4 and 5
    brooklyn 99 another entry for seasons 2, 3, 6 and 7
    dragon ball kai matches to dragon ball
    invincible and perry mason match to "hunting season" season 1

    MATCHED CORRECTLY:
    a perfect planet
    band of brothers
    banshee season 4
    the americans seasons 1 through 5
    barry season 2 episodes 1 and 2
    better call saul
    blue planet 2
    bojack horseman
    cant get you out of my head
    dark season 1 episodes 1 through 6
    dark side of the ring
    formula 1 drive to survive
    its always sunny in philadelphia
    justified
    le mans racing is everything
    liseys story
    loki
    mare of easttown
    mind field
    planet earth 2
    rick and morty
    shogun
    south park
    succession
    the dictators playbook
    the sopranos
    the thick of it
    wet hot american summer
     
  12. At a very basic level, I would assume it would help to be able to define what kind of content, TV or Movies, is in a directory. Both Plex and Kodi do it this way and I have to assume there is a reason.

    Assuming what HT 4.0 needs to correctly match an episode is the name of the show and the episode number in the usual S03E04 format, it seems to me these two approaches might be viable:

    Match via filename only:
    Every episode contains the usual number format ".S03E04." in its filename. Everything before that part is the show name, either in a the format "Show.Name" or "Show Name", everything after that part is to be ignored.

    The advantage here is that this would work regardless of how files are organized on the disk.


    Match via folder and filename:
    Every episode contains the usual number format ".S03E04." in its filename. Every episode is in a folder named after the show and subfolder for each season, example:

    Show Name
    -Season 1
    --Show.Name.S01E01.WEBDL.RLSGRP.mkv

    With this way of scraping HT 4.0 would have to look at file path and recognize the show name from there.

    The advantage here would be that it's the same organization that's recommended by PLEX and Kodi, as well as the default way Radarr and Sonarr organize libraries, thus making migration from or integration with these programs simple.

    Here is documentation how PLEX suggest the organizing of ones TV library:
    https://support.plex.tv/articles/naming-and-organizing-your-tv-show-files/

    and Kodi:

    Since others have posted screen captures and logs, I'll spare you mine. I follow the exact same protocol listed above (Show Name.S01E01, etc) yet entire Series such as Stargate SG1, Star Trek: Next Generation, are not matched. Even worse, after failing to match, they are automatically "deposited" in the "unmatched" file and even if I manually match them perfectly, they do not appear until "TV Shows" AND remain in the "unmatched" file. When HT4.0 works properly, it is great. Unfortunately that's only about 75% of the time.

    When you say that you "manually match them perfectly", did you add movie ID's to the series?

    Also, are you checking that your video titles match with those on TVDB:

    https://thetvdb.com/series/stargate-sg-1

  17. For me, manual matching always works fine regardless of whether or not theres a show ID in the folder name. I did a test and added tvdb IDs to the folder names but it still did not match correctly:

    Only episodes 1 and 2 of season 2 get matched correctly, the rest are in the unmatched category.

    Wow, I don't think I could cope with all of the junk in the filenames :eek:! Does "Sonarr" add this???

    Have you tried cutting the names back to:
    "Z:\complete\TV\Barry (2018)\Barry (2018) Season 1\Barry.S01E07.mkv"
    and seeing if you can get a match then???

  19. The information about the release I would not consider junk, it's added to the filename by Sonarr because that's how I have it configured, yes. The TV scraper for PLEX, which I also use with my library, is set up to where it recognizes the contents of the { } brackets as the tvdb id and also ignores anything thats inside the [ ] brackets, this I think would also be a great solution for HT 4.0 as it would be in line with the way a very common software, PLEX, handles scraping and also because it allows for flexibility of file naming on the user side.

    So, with all that extra information, the files still don't match ;)!
