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.
