Folder Structure and Naming

You can add folders on your PC that include Movies or TV Shows to Nero MediaHome media library via the options settings. Once done your Movies or TV Shows will be indexed and added to the browsing views accordingly.

If available, Nero MediaHome will make use additional meta data to achieve optimum results for showing correct movie names and associated film posters. Please, take a quick look at some essential naming conventions that you should apply to all your files associated to Movies & TV Shows.
