Level 1. This is the name of the folder you seed. It can be named anything you like, but should be the same name as the .torrent file and the title of the thread.
There's no point in having different names for everything, it just makes it difficult to locate the folder and .torrent file six months later.

Level 2. This folder level must contain the video files folder named in CAPS_&_UNDERSCORES and any other info files, md5's, ticket stubs, or anything else you think is important to include.

Level 3. This is the VIDEO_TS folder, it contains the video and audio files that are decoded by your player.

Level 4. The video files themselves.

A DVD has a precise structure - Don't change it or expect everyone else to know what that structure is supposed to be. No one likes a pile of coasters.

The only structure for a DVD is: NAME_OF_THE_DISC > VIDEO_TS > VOBs. There are no spaces. Underscores replace spaces, and there are NO lower case letters anywhere. Numbers are neither upper or lower case but are accepted in the DVD standard.

Not everyone uses the same software or operating system as you so use the universal naming convention that preserves the DVD structure and makes it easy for everyone to burn a good disc the first time.

DO NOT rename the folder containing the VIDEO_TS folder in lower case. If you do, it won't work if it's burned to disc on many standalone DVD players because it's NOT the DVD standard.

DO NOT put the info files, md5's or ticket stubs in the same directory as the VIDEO_TS. This is NOT a standard DVD structure. All additional files are placed in the directory above so they aren't burned to a DVD disc accidently.

DO NOT decide on a different name of the outer folder and then rename .torrent before uploading - This will ensure that the torrent file and the folder are next to each other in list view.

DO NOT put an entirely different description in the thread title and the .torrent file - 6 months later it will be impossible to search or locate it on your HD because you'll have no idea what you're looking for any more.

DON'T seed double DVD sets as separate discs - It just makes it more difficult to d/load both halves a year later.
