I requested a feature in the Suggestions forum to have Infuse pick up a TVDB ID from an XML in the series folder. I still think it would be great to have that capability (and for movies too!) but I was able to get most of my TV shows to scrape correctly by adding season subfolders and putting the year in folder name for the show.
I’m down to one show that Infuse doesn’t recognize correctly which is Netflix Stand Up Specials (https://www.thetvdb.com/series/340923). It uses a year for the season then an episode number (e.g. on TVDB’s site it lists the latest episode as “S2020E13 - Jerry Seinfeld Has… 23 Hours to Kill”). I’ve tried different naming conventions, for example:
- Netflix Stand Up Specials\Season 2020\2020x13 - Jerry Seinfeld Has… 23 Hours to Kill
- Netflix Stand Up Specials\2020x13 - Jerry Seinfeld Has… 23 Hours to Kill
- Netflix Stand Up Specials\S2020E13 - Jerry Seinfeld Has… 23 Hours to Kill
Unfortunately I can’t get Infuse to recognize it.
A related but different problem is movie scraping… I’ve got a pretty large library and I recently built my metadata from scratch. Even using “Movie Name (year)”, I’ve got several mis-detects. I’m going through each film and I can tell it’s bad if 1) there’s no movie poster or 2) there two titles with the same name. To fix, I “Edit Metadata” and usually the correct title is the first one on the list. I select that and it manually scrapes. I’ve corrected about 30 so far and I’m about halfway through my library. It’s tedious but it works. I’m just concerned that if for some reason I need wipe my metadata again I’ll need to make these manual corrections… although I read the corrections may be synced to iCloud?
Anyway, it would be great to understand why Netflix Stand Up Specials doesn’t scrape and what I can do to improve automatic scraping of movies.
