DVD: video_ts folder wrongly scanned into a series of "Video Girl"
#1
Hi,
I have a couple of DVD which  are stored in a folder structured like Film (year) / video_ts / xxxx where xxxx are all the files that the DVD needs.
I added these DVD a couple of years ago and since then, everything was OK. I have added and scraped many other movies without any issues. But lately scraped a new film I added and the behaviour changed:
Basically, what the scraper is doing now is scanning the video_ts folder thinking this is a film (because in the scraping option I have set the "Films are in separate folders"). 
Therefore it's creating as many "Video Girl" movies as the amount of .ifo, .bup and .vob files it encounters within that folder.
You can see it from here:

Same here! It just happens when using WebDAV as a source though. SMB works fine. A have about 70 library entries called "Video Girl" :-(

I found the issue time ago:
I was using a FAT32 system where capitalized and uncapitalized letters were the same, and Kodi wants the folder in caps.
I was writing in caps but in the FS it was lowered (from VIDEO_TS to video_ts) and this causes issues.

In the end, I moved to a different FS and to a NAS (not to an external HDD) and I solved all my issues.
