What to do with season #s that can be anything from 01 to 2014?

American Masters uses the year as it's season number for recent (last 2) years. So, when transcoding those episodes, the season number could be anything from 01 to 2014.

In the documentation, we have this example:

__E.g.: TVShows\%showname%\Season %season%\%showname% - S%season%##E%episode%## - %episodename% - %airyear%_%airmonth%_%airday%

Will produce: TVShows\CSI\Season 1\CSI - S01E02 - Best of times - 2012_01_06.<ext>__

What would you suggest for being able to write a season number that will sometimes be 4 digits?

My guess is: Season %season%\%showname% - S%season%E%episode%## - %episodename%

Everybody agree?

%season%
%season%##
%season%####

All should work. Each will work differently but all should work.

So, you're saying that if the season is 2014, using:

%season%##

will still yield:

Season 2014

and not

Season 14

?

correct

2014:
%season% -> 2014
%season%## -> 2014
%season%#### -> 2014

2:
%season% -> 2
%season%## -> 02
%season%#### -> 0002
