We are using the MediaPortal 2 Server to record live TV movies and series, and Kodi as the client to view the recorded material.

For scraping purposes, the Kodi library requires individual Movies and TV Series to be saved to sub-folders of the same name, with TV Series to have two levels of sub-folders:

Naming video files/Movies - Official Kodi Wiki
Naming video files/TV shows - Official Kodi Wiki

Is this possible to achieve in MediaPortal 2 Server? I have checked the following Wiki page but cannot see a section that describes how to do this?

Or is it just a case of adding backslashes to the "Custom paths and filenames" format, to add sub-folder levels?

E.g. %title%/%title%

In addition, how can the year of the Movie be added to the filename e.g. "Ponyo (2008)"? Again, this is required by Kodi for scraping purposes, to differentiate between different remakes.

Naming video files/Movies - Official Kodi Wiki
"Movie Folder names must contain the Title and should contain the Year. Although not a strict requirement, the year should be in open/close parenthesis (the ( and ) characters, respectively)."
