Zappiti Player 4K: How to create a movie collection (full process)

Folders

Movies
1. On your NAS or your HDD, please create a movie folder named "MOVIES". Place all your movie files in it.
2. Your movies should be named with the title of each movie. For example, the file of the title "Metropolis" should be named "Metropolis.mkv". You can create subfolders in the folder " MOVIES " if you want.

TV Shows / TV Series
1. On your NAS or your HDD, please create a "TV SHOWS" folder.
2. Then, create a subfolder for each TV Show / Serie. You can create a subfolder by season if you want. Then , place all your TV Show episodes in it.
