Wiki entry is missing crucial information for multi-part episodes
#1
The wiki entry for Episodes ( https://kodi.wiki/view/NFO_files/Episodes ) is missing the information that the nfo-Tag
<episode></episode>
is required for multi-part episodes. Maybe the nfo-tag
<season></season>
is also required. The description that this tag is "Ignored on Import. Episode is read from filename" is wrong.

Bonus error: The tag
<uniqueid type="" default=""></uniqueid>
is not required.

Here is a complete minimal example for multi-part episodes:
(I've added the tag
<multiepisodenfo></multiepisodenfo>
to make it xml conform, I don't know if Kodi even looks at these.)

Filenames:
  • Chapter 1 - S01E01E02E03E04.mp4
  • Chapter 1 - S01E01E02E03E04.nfo

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<multiepisodenfo>
  <episodedetails>
    <title>Part 1</title>
    <season>1</season>
    <episode>1</episode>
  </episodedetails>
  <episodedetails>
    <title>Part 2</title>
    <season>1</season>
    <episode>2</episode>
  </episodedetails>
  <episodedetails>
    <title>Part 3</title>
    <season>1</season>
    <episode>3</episode>
  </episodedetails>
  <episodedetails>
    <title>Part 4</title>
    <season>1</season>
    <episode>4</episode>
  </episodedetails>
</multiepisodenfo>

That actually took quite some time to figure out…

Thanks for the post, but most of what you commented is not correct.

<episode></episode>
<season></season>
Why would you need this? Season and episode numbering come from the filename (SxxExx) NOT from the nfo file

<uniqueid type="" default=""></uniqueid>
Why do you say this is not needed? This is a critical tag that is required.

<multiepisodenfo></multiepisodenfo>
There is no such tag


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<multiepisodenfo>
<episodedetails>
<title>Part 1</title>
<season>1</season>
<episode>1</episode>
</episodedetails>
<episodedetails>
<title>Part 2</title>
<season>1</season>
<episode>2</episode>
</episodedetails>
<episodedetails>
<title>Part 3</title>
<season>1</season>
<episode>3</episode>
</episodedetails>
<episodedetails>
<title>Part 4</title>
<season>1</season>
<episode>4</episode>
</episodedetails>
</multiepisodenfo>
There is no <multiepisodenfo> tag. It seems you are making this up, or being led astray by some third party media manager.

Please explain what you are trying to do, and I will guide you correctly.
