Guide: Zidoo 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.

Special thanks goes to Markswift2003@Zidoo Forum.

  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.
