Shows With Trailing Periods

I have two TV shows with trailing periods in their root folder name:

  • “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
  • “The O.C.”

When I add the trailing ., the title of the show’s folder goes crazy as if it’s encoded incorrectly.

  • “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” becomes “MMCK1K~W”
  • “The O.C.” becomes “T4EQPT~E”

This looks like a bug to me.

Infuse currently doesn’t deal with shows that contain . or - in the actual title very well.

We’re looking into a few ways to improve this, but for now if you remove the periods from the filenames (E.G. O.C. → OC and S.H.I.E.L.D. → SHIELD) Infuse should pick them up right away.

I have been using this symbol “|” in place of “-” or “:” Is Infuse going to have any problems if my file names contain “|” symbols?

And what you need to try ???
