Kodi & YAMJ mkv or iso file naming
Is there a naming convention that works for both Kodi and YAMJ? Kodi needs folder with file name and the the actual mkv or iso in that folder. Yamj in my experience doesn't really like it. Is there a standard convention that works for both? Thanks!

RE: Kodi & YAMJ mkv or iso file naming
They use different conventions for file naming plus mif you have used YAMJ to donwload trailers that also craps out Kodi into producing extra entries.

Googling gave this:-

You'll have to check with Ember though if it creates only the images required or if it renames the videos, you dont want that or you'll end up with only Kodi and not YAMJ wokring. It's an oldish thread so things may have got better, ember has its own sub-forum:

RE: Kodi & YAMJ mkv or iso file naming
There is no requirement to use folders for each movie in Kodi, although it does offer it as an option. The same applies to TV shows, which I normally keep in Show folders with season sub-folders. For film and odd tv episodes I use a mix of folder/no folder, and it works on both Kodi and Plex, but haven't used YAMJ for a long time, although I don't remember any problems specifically related to naming.
