Fixed in 2069.

It uses the same set of masks as for the automatic video metadata detection from path/filename and once either episode or season is presented then "TV" track type is assigned.

The current mask set (as in MM4) is

Type is detected OK as My files are well organized so path includes <Series>\Season <Season#:2>\<Filename> but missing metadata is not recognized at all as Masks from 0012481:0048059 are not considered and ~48107 fail due the no episode metadata filled.

Resolving as the type detection is OK.

The mask issues with multi-episode metadata are tracked in the original issue 0012481:0048221

Type failed to be detected if multiple files/episodes are in single folder like
d:\Not Watched\Show Name.S02E03.720p.HDTV.XviD-RLSGROUP.ext 0012481:0048059

That is why I suggested 0013756 which would narrow recognition mask and also increase accuracy if separated like pointed in 0012423

I have just tried with path
'd:\Not Watched\Show Name.S02E03.720p.HDTV.XviD-RLSGROUP.avi'
and it was correctly detected as Season# = '02', Episode# = '03' and thus classified as TV.

I tested with build 2070 because of fixes in 0012481:0048223

Could you re-test in 2070? I don't see how this could be related to multiple files in a single folder. If you still can replicate with 2070 then please ZIP on of such a folders and upload to our FTP so that I could replicate.

Will do more tests, it is possible that it was test error.

Episode number is not detected as I explained in 0012481:0048229

you can locate file on ftp at "MM5/bugs/bug12481/2070.rar" we should continue regarding metadata detection there.

ok, I found it finally. I forgot that the masks are written to MM.INI as VideoMasks and I compiled MM with DUnit in which case always the default mask set is taken. But in your case still the old VideoMasks from MM.INI are used :-/ Probably so that user modified masks are not overwritten by the new default.

Continued in 0012481

Closing removing [VideoMasks] fixes the problem.
