How can I get the ID of an episode if I only have the video file with none metadata whatsoever? I've seen that there are some apps that do this but i can't figure out how they do it.
A place for developers to advertise their TheTVDB.com enabled app and get help from other developers with the API.

If you just have pure video, you can't get the metadata needed to find the episode. On the other hand, sometimes you can get enough metadata just from the name of the file, and certain formats (e.g. MP4) can have metadata embedded within, so you can use a video library (e.g. mp4v2https://github.com/TechSmith/mp4v2) to extract that information.
