My Movies can recognise TV series and episodes in a filesystem through the import folder and folder monitoring functionality. However for this to work, some conventions for the folder structure and file naming needs to be followed. The structures and naming formats that My Movies support are the ones that are often used on the Internet.

Folder structure Both the import folder and folder monitoring functionality needs a specification of a root folder in which the subfolders represents the TV series. The naming of the subfolders must be the titles of the series, as these names are used for matching the serie against the databases. Any folders that are not directly subfolders of the root folder are not recognised as individual TV Series, they are however still traversed for episode files.

The following example shows a folder stucture and the folders that are recognised as TV Series.
