MP-TVSeries can scan your harddrive for video files, analyse them by their path structures and then, if determined to be a TV Episode, go online and retrieve information about them. You can then browse, manage and play your episodes from inside MP in a nice graphical layout.

The information it retrieves is coming from http://thetvdb.com/ which allows any user to add and update information. Please go there and support zsori (author and admin) by inputing data, uploading banners and clicking his ads. Remember, without this database and its mirror sites none of this would be possible. All fields available there are/will be supported.

Changelog
v4.2.2
=====
* Fixed trakt community ratings sometimes being overwritten with tvdb ratings.
* Fixed user edited fields not being reflected in the configuration tool after reload.
* Added new skin setting function 'FormatThousands' to allow you format large numbers e.g trakt community votes e.g 41983 -> 41,983.
* Added new formatting rules to the Titan skin so it displays vote counts for ratings with thousands separators.

v4.2.1
=====
* Fixed community ratings not being displayed when using a comma for decimal separator in regional settings.
* Fixed an issue where series were not correctly matching if two series differed only by an exclamation mark e.g. Betrayal -> Betrayal!
* Added PDB debug file to installer.

v4.2.0
=====
* Added new fields to the Season table so user can override the Season Title and Summary.
* Added an option in configuration that will retrieve community ratings from trakt.tv. Ratings for shows, seasons and episodes are much better there than at thetvdb.com and with the help of the TraktPlugin it's a logical choice for ratings. This feature is only supported if you have the latest Trakt plugin installed (v5.3.1+) and have a valid login and MP-TVSeries plugin enabled in Trakt configuration. As an added bonus, season ratings will also be imported (these are not supported at thetvdb.com) and also season summaries.
* Added an option in configuration which automatically counts any special episodes (i.e. episodes in Season 0) as watched when viewing the watched count at the Series level. Thanks to community member barneh. This may be useful for people that like to see how many episodes left to watch at the series level minus any specials.
* Added a new Language field for the Audio sound track in MediaInfo. Thanks to community member barneh.
* Added support to choose a different language per series. Thanks to community member barneh. From the configuration Online Data tab select to override language per series, then in the Details tab select your language on already imported series.
* Added an option in configuration when cleans up episodes from the database if they no longer exist online. This is only applicable for users which download all episode information.
* Added support to match series against their alias names defined at thetvdb.com.
* Publish custom plugin name to skin in the #TVSeries.PluginName property.
* Remove TVDb warning dialog when rating in TVSeries if the Account ID is not set and using the internal rate dialog.
* Fixed Sub-Central option in configuration not appearing if launching from the desktop shortcut.
* Fixed the StopTime field in the database not being present in the database after a fresh import on a clean database. Previously it was only created after an episode was partially watched with-in tvseries.
* Fixed a bug in configuration not clearing the tab when clicking on the Empty database link.
* Fixed a bug in the Titan skin where season title was not displayed in Filmstrip/Coverflow layouts.
* Updated translations from Transifex.

v4.1.0
=====
* Added Titan skin files to installer, a few bug fixes and enhancements.
* Removal of follw.it (Service is shutting down end of September).
* Updated translations from Transifex.

v4.0.3
=====
* Added a Trailers context menu item from Series, Season and Episode views. User can stream trailers via the Trailers\OnlineVideos plugins.
* Added Trailers MPEI package to main installer package.
* Added a workaround when resuming from standby into a protected view, user will now return to the previous menu rather than attempt to show the PinCode dialog as this no longer works in MP 1.7 when invoked to early.
* Updated translations from Transifex.

v4.0.2
=====
* Fixed 'PlayCount', 'FirstDateWatched' and 'LastDateWatched' fields being cleared when an online update of an episode occurs.
* Publish skin properties for the users 'views', allows skin designers to create custom menus on the home screen. See debug log for available skin properties.

v4.0.1
=====
* Fixed compatibility issues reported by some users not running .Net 4.5.

v4.0.0
=====
* Updated to support MediaPortal 1.7. Not compatible with earlier versions.
* Added safer access to the fanart collection when multiple plugins are accessing them at the same time.
* Fixed and re-enabled string replacement for acronym detection. Thanks Rochess.
* Updated translations from Transifex.

v3.6.0
=====
* Includes bug fixes and features as done as part of v4.0.0-4.0.2 releases.

v3.5.2
=====
* Fixed view tags not working when a tag name contained an apostrophe.
* Added a new "On Play" action: "Play First Unwatched otherwise Random". If there is no unwatched then it will pick a random episode. Users may need to check in configuration is desired option is still selected as indexes have changed.
* Added Extensions plugin installer to installation package.
* Added 'LastWatchedDate', 'FirstWatchedDate' and 'PlayCount' fields to the online_episodes table. Primary use case will be for syncing plugins like Trakt. When user toggles watched, it will not affect the PlayCount. Database will be upgraded on first startup, anything watched will have a playcount of 1.
* Updated installer so that the Trakt installation package is now referenced by it's online ID, this means the installer size is reduced and package is downloaded if minimum version is not already installed.
* Improved thread safety when multiple plugins performing an episode query via the API.
* Improved logging of script execution in MPEI installer window during installation. Should be clear what it's actually doing.
* Updated the configuration launcher to be compatible with MediaPortal 1.6, it will no longer crash. Correct one is installed during installation, if user upgrades MediaPortal after installing tvseries it's recommended to re-run the installer.
* Removed the generic PluginConfigLoader.exe from the installation package.
* Send 'Watched' flag to Trakt plugin when selecting trakt from the internal tvseries menu. This can be used to show spoilers on shouts when episode is watched and 'hide spoilers' is enabled.
* Updated default string replacements for acronym detection. Thanks Rochess. (Disabled due to bug)
* Updated translations from Transifex.

So good it should be an integral part of MediaPortal
MP-TVSeries is simply excellent. The front-end and back-end elements are slick, straight forward and easy to use. The integration with THETVDB.com is faultless and it is the most effective and visually pleasing way to have TV Boxsets in MediaPortal.

The team behind MP-TVSeries are amazingly quick to release updates in line with MediaPortal versions, in fact they usually have compatibility sorted before the next version of MediaPortal is released.

Simply a must for anyone with TV boxsets to access in MediaPortal.

Anime absolute
Absolute recommended if you like ordering your series.

Only not working well with Absolute file numbering. For anyone that want to use it: ^(?[^\d]*?)\\Season (?\d+)\\\[.*\][_ ][^\d]*?[_ ](?\d+)(?:-(?\d+))?(?:[_ ]?v2)?[_ ][\w\[\]]*\.(?[^\\]*)$

Must have plugin
90% of the time I use MediaPortal is within MP-TVSeries - and that's a good thing :-)

Helps you keep track of your tv shows in a great and fun way.
