[TIP] TV Series Storage Structure
« on: October 20, 2009, 04:59:23 pm »
Recommended structure for TV Series

Series Name/Folder.jpg                         <---- Series folder image grabbed from TheTVdb.com
Series Name/About.jpg                         <---- Series info scraped using GUI Builder
Series Name/Season 01/Folder.jpg       <---- Season jpeg as per the example below
Series Name/Season 01/01 - title.avi    <---- Episode labelled in the format "Episode - Title"
Series Name/Season 01/02 - title.avi    <---- Episode titles are also available from TheTVdb.com
...


Note that for folder art it would be unnecessary to download the largest file available - in respect of TheTVdb images, the preview artwork is quite adequate - larger images are only going to increase rendering time and impact negatively on your browsing experience.

Note: This folder artwork is courtesy of XBMC - the folder image was placed on a 100% black background to give it the appearance of 'floating', rather than have it appear in a white box.

Seasons 11-15

(Honestly, if a series goes on this long then it has been flogged to death...)
