Hi, 

 

I would like to request that the requirements for TV Shows naming scheme to be more flexible. 

 

Today's naming convention required is:

TV Shows /
          TV Show name /
                         Season 0x/
                                    Show Name - S0xE0x - title.ext

Would be possible to allow for the same format but without the need of the Season folder?

 

Example:

TV Shows /
          TV Show name /
                         Show Name - S0xE0x - title.ext

And even better would be to just require that S0xE0x should be present on the filename. 

 

A few reasons to allow this:

 

1. Easier and faster to look into an entire TV Shows. Faster to organize. Faster to spot missing episodes and erros.

 

2. Many of us store their content on remote servers that count API requests. 

Opening multiple folders is much slower compared to opening a single folder and it also requires less API calls. 

 

This would be a good pratice in coding and preserves bandwidth, time and the resources of servers around the world. 

 

Hope this request find good ears. 

Thank you in advance for your time considering this.

isn't that not yet supported? -> https://support.emby.media/support/solutions/articles/44001159110-tv-naming

For example:
 \TV
    \Glee (2009)
       \Season 1
          Glee S01E01.mp4
          Glee S01E02.mp4
  \TV
     \Seinfeld (1989)
        Seinfeld S01E01.mp4
        Seinfeld S01E02.mp4

I figured it wouldn't, I remember reading that documentation and it obviously slipped my attention.

 

Sorry for bothering you with this.
