Naming TV Mini-Series

The scanners and metadata agents used by Plex will work best when your major types of content are separated from each other. We strongly recommend separating movie and television content into separate main directories. For instance, you might use something like this:

/Media
   /Movies
      movie content
   /Music
      music content
   /TV Shows
      television content

Warning!: Plex will do its best to appropriately find and match content. However, a failure to separate content such as movies and TV shows may result in unexpected or incorrect behavior.

Television Mini-Series

By default, Plex matches against TheTVDB.com, so you should name and organize your content based on the information on that site.

Television mini-series should be named just like other TV shows using Season 01 as the season:

/TV Shows
   /Band of Brothers
      /Season 01
         Band of Brothers - s01e01 - Currahee.mkv
         Band of Brothers - s01e02 - Day of Days.mkv
         Band of Brothers - s01e03 - Carentan.mkv
