I have a lot of recorded videos. I know the show name, but don't have the episode name. Is there software to recognize episode name by video?

    Don't know of any software like that, but if reverse image search services like Google Images or Tineye are able to recognize random frames from the video, then you could write a script that extracts a random frame and uploads it to one of those services

  • Are these digital recordings? Depending on what format you used the closed captioning text might be embedded in the video. Many formats don't but a few do.

Yes, apparently Shazam can do this, not through video but through the video's audio.
