Guide: Zidoo Home Theater Media Labels

After seeing the question regarding “how to name a file correctly to see the badges” repeatedly on the Zidoo Forum I’ve decided to take a deeper look inside the Home Theater App to figure this out.

The Usual Suspects

Special thanks goes to Markswift2003@Zidoo Forum.

Format: The<separator>Movie<separator>Name<separator><label-1><separator><label-2><separator><label-n>.<extension>

separator: blank, dot, minus, underscore

labels are case insensitive

Eg: The Usual Suspects 4k hdr dolby 5.1.mkv
Eg: the usual suspects 4k hdr dolby 5.1.mkv
Eg: The.Usual.Suspects.4k.hdr.dolby.5.1.mkv
Eg: The-Usual-Suspects-4K-HDR-DOLBY-5.1.MKV

Poster Wall Label

Eg:

For valid values for <extension> see next table “Container Label”. Extension iso works only for BD, 3DBD and UHD BD.

  1. Thank you for the good guide – very helpful. He inspired me to several experiences.
    Maybe you already know about it but I haven’t read it anywhere, just in case I will write.
    My tests show that HT3 labels: h264, h265, Xvid, VC1 will not read from the file names when scanning.
    Instead, he will read them after starting the movie. At the same time, he doesn’t read them from the content of the file (MediaInfo) but from the File Name.
    Probably only from MKV files but AVI not anymore.
    I could not get the Divx and MPEG-4 labels.
    for example.
    If the movie name is:
    Charlie’s Angels (2019).mkv
    after starting the movie, it will only show MKV, 1080p (resolution) and 23.976 (frames / second) labels, i.e. other information from the file cannot be read.
    However, if the movie name is:
    Charlie’s Angels (2019) 1080p Blu-ray h.264 Dolby 5.1.mkv
    after scanning it will read 1080p, dolby 5.1 and MKV
    and after the movie started, additionally h.264 / AVC and 23.976.
    It does not matter what the movie is encoded (information from Mediainfo).
    I tested on one movie, changing its name HEVC, h.265, AVC, h.264, VC-1, Xvid after starting the movie always read what in the file name even though the movie was encoded with h.264.
    HEVC / H.265 – hevc, h.265
    AVC / H.264 – avc, h264
    XVID – xvid
    VC1 – vc-1

    In AVI files I could not get it, it does not read additional information after starting the movie, even if it is in the name.

      • Ok, so I’m wrong. Sorry.
        Or perhaps is it a test to show audio codec and aspect ratio with only one icon ?

        By the way, you made a good job. Thank you. 🙂

        PS : sorry for my bad english…

  2. Do you know how we can reset a movie in HT so the resolution and framerate badges disappear and show only the MKV one? If I delete a movie and re-import it, it keeps both resolution and framerate badges from previously. I want to reset this information so HT can rescan the specific movie when I play it. Is there a way to do that?
