Zappiti organizes automatically your media collection (Movies, TV Shows, Musics) in
categories and offers a simple, easy and stylish navigation by using cover arts or album thumbnails browsing with
synopsis and various media infos. Before you start using Zappiti, you must create two different folders:
1. Please, create a folder named "MOVIES" and copy all your movie and concert files in it.
2. Rename the movie files with the exact movie title. For example : the movie "Metropolis" in MKV format should be named as "Metropolis.mkv".
1. Create a "TV Shows" folder and copy all your TV Show files in it.
2. Your episode files can be placed loose in your folder "TV Shows". Episode files must be named as follows: "name s01e01"."s" stands for "season" while "e" stands for "episode". For example: "Tornado s01e03.mkv".Then, on the setup page, click "Add a folder containing movies" browse your files and select your folders MOVIES. Do the same for your TV SHOWS. On PC/MAC, click on the Validate button. On Zappiti Player 4K, press "RETURN" button of your RC. Zappiti will analyse your video files and scrap movie covers and various infos.
On your PC/MAC, you can browse your collections and play your videos. If you have a Zappiti Player, you can use Zappiti Media Center directly on your Media Player connected to your TV set.

You can choose to execute Zappiti at the player start up via the dedicaced feature in the setup menu of Zappiti Player.
Zappiti Media Center V4 features a new smart and powerfull movie/TV show scan engine. Day after day, the Zappiti Database will grow up thanks to the Zappiti community and the scan will be more and more efficient and reliable. For example, for Metropolis.mkv, Zappiti can associate the 2001 japanese animated movie version instead of the 1927 version from Fritz Lang. But if one single user associates the right version, all the other users will benefit from it!
