    Default TV series DVDs

    I have a number of TV series on DVD sets. I have these all stored as .ISO's on my media server, but this doesn't work so well as Mezzmo cannot properly "catalog" the multiple episode-per-DVD disc format, and for the most part Mezzmo doesn't even find ANY metadata for these .ISOs...

    I have "pulled apart" some of these .ISOs into typical "ripped from DVD" type folers: AUDIO_TS, JACKET_P, and VIDEO_TS folders with all the usual files in them. I ran "Library Maintenance" expecting that Mezzmo would find metadata and create entries for each episode of the TV series on these DVDs, but it did not.

    What I want is a Mezzmo "catalog" or "directory" that shows the TV series name and the title of each episode, and some data (if available) for the episodes....

    (I guess it's actually a playlist in an XML file someplace, but it shows up like a directory or a catalog on my TVs etc...)

    Any suggestions on how to get Mezzmo to "catalog" these TV series DVDs?

    And, is there any way to manually point to a directory on the server containing ripped DVD files and tell Mezzmo to find the metadata - instead of having to run Library Maintenance each time I want to see how Mezzmo is going to catalog these?

    You can right-click on a folder and Maintain just that folder using the Library maintenance. Cataloging DVDs containing TV episodes is problematic because the DVD may not have the episodes in order and each disc may have a different number of episodes. See http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?id=supported_filenames&s[]=dvd for information on naming the DVDs. You may need to manually go into each DVD folder in Mezzmo and edit the properties of the video titles found to set the season and episode information.

    OK, I see

    I'd forgotten about using the context / right click menu integrated into the shell.

    It's not integrated into the shell, just in Mezzmo. If you have added the folder into Mezzmo as a folder you can right-click on the folder and select to Maintain the folder.
