MythVideo File Naming Conventions

MythVideo (in MythTV .22 and newer) uses a complex series of regular expressions to parse all the metadata it can find from a filename when importing the file into the database. Using most common naming schemes, MythVideo can parse Title, Subtitle, Season, and Episode where that data is relevant. Below are some examples of acceptable naming conventions. Additionally, MythVideo can parse most/all of the below formats w/ and number of underscores, dashes, spaces, and periods replacing spaces below.


A Movie Title.mpg Title s01e01 Subtitle.mpg Title 1x01 Subtitle.mpg Title Season 1 Episode 1 Subtitle.mpg Title 1.01 Subtitle.mpg

Filename/Path combinations

Title/Season 1/01 Subtitle.mpg Title/Season 1/s01e01 Subtitle.mpg Title/Season 1/1x01 Subtitle.mpg Title/Season 1/Title s01e01 Subtitle.mpg Title/Season 1/Title 1x01 Subtitle.mpg Title/Season 1/Episode 1 Subtitle.mpg Title/Season 1/Season 1 Episode 1 Subtitle.mpg Title Season 1/01 Subtitle.mpg Title Season 1/s01e01 Subtitle.mpg Title Season 1/1x01 Subtitle.mpg Title Season 1/Title s01e01 Subtitle.mpg Title Season 1/Title 1x01 Subtitle.mpg Title Season 1/Episode 1 Subtitle.mpg Title Season 1/Season 1 Episode 1 Subtitle.mpg
