Hi, I was hoping you could add support for fetching metadata on files that have been organized via iTunes.
Right now iTunes manages my library and the naming is as follows. Show Name/Season/01 episode 1.ext and so on.
Infuse will not fetch any meta data for any show I have tried with this default structure.
I was very much hoping this could be added into a future version? Because if I use local metadata, the shows end up in "other" and it also does not look very good.
If infuse is using TVDB to get the data, I think this should be a supported naming format but I could be wrong.
I use iFlicks and put these same files and it was able to pull the new data from TVDB or wherever it gets it and was able to tag them with new data.
I'm surprised this has not been added yet as I think this is a big drawback of how the app manages TV libraries.
For movies it works flawless getting the data, but for the thousands of shows I have run through it, it was not able to pull any metadata due to the file naming.
I also looked at metadata 101 and I see that it does take into account show & season folders, just not the filenames without "S01E01", can it not use the show & season folders and use track numbers for episode numbers? I was very excited when version 6 was released but very disappointed this is still an issue. I tried using this app for ATV a while back but had to go back to Plex because of the way infuse does not recognize any iTunes named shows. Thanks very much for the help, I really appreciate it. Smile

This will be available in the upcoming 6.0.7 update. Smile

We've added support for two new naming styles.

Style 1

Folder: 
TV Shows / How I Met Your Mother / Season 1 

Files: 
1-01 NameOfEpisode1.mp4 
1-02 NameOfEpisode2.mp4 
1-03 NameOfEpisode3.mp4

Style 2

Folder: 
TV Shows / How I Met Your Mother / Season 1 

Files: 
01 NameOfEpisode1.mp4 
02 NameOfEpisode2.mp4 
03 NameOfEpisode3.mp4

Infuse 6 for iOS and Apple TV is now available!

Any chance it could be expanded to support something like this, accepting the prefix of "Episode xx"? My structure is similar but slightly different.

Folder:
TV Shows / How I Met Your Mother / Season 1

Files:
Episode 01 - NameOfEpisode1.mp4
Episode 02 - NameOfEpisode2.mp4
Episode 03 - NameOfEpisode3.mp4

Having said that, this is a big improvement! Much appreciated.

So after spending an absolute age formatting my tv shows from iTunes style to infuse and it not working at all with some UK tv shows, you pull this out the bag! I could scream!!
