Multiepisode specials

Post by devster » 07 Feb 2018, 18:51

I have a few specials from Dexter. The following are the outputs:

Code: Select all

$ filebot -list --q 'dexter' --filter 'special && special < 5' --action test -rename Dexter\ -\ S00E01-04\ -\ Early\ Cuts-\ Alex\ Timmons\ \(Chapter\ 1-4\).mp4
Apply filter [special && special <5] on [125] items
Include [Dexter - Special 1 - Early Cuts: Alex Timmons (Chapter 1)]
Include [Dexter - Special 2 - Early Cuts: Alex Timmons (Chapter 2)]
Include [Dexter - Special 3 - Early Cuts: Alex Timmons (Chapter 3)]
Include [Dexter - Special 4 - Early Cuts: Alex Timmons (Chapter 4)]
[TEST] from [/mount/tv-shows/Dexter/Specials/Dexter - S00E01-04 - Early Cuts- Alex Timmons (Chapter 1-4).mp4] to [/mount/tv-shows/Dexter/Specials/Dexter - Special 1 - Early Cuts Alex Timmons (Chapter 1).mp4]
Is it possible to force the detection of multiepisodes when they are also specials?

This works = not a specials thing

Code: Select all

Dexter - S00E01-02.mp4
result
Dexter - S00E01-E02 - Early Cuts: Alex Timmons
This does NOT work = Feature Request ... support for e.g. 4in1 Multiepisode

Code: Select all

Dexter - S00E01-03.mp4
result
Dexter - S00E01 - Early Cuts: Alex Timmons (Chapter 1)

When dealing with multi-episode files, you may need to take special care that files are correctly named and numbered using common patterns such as SxE-Ex beforehand:

Code: Select all

$ filebot -rename . --db TheTVDB -non-strict --format "{plex.name}" --action TEST
Rename episodes using [TheTVDB]
Auto-detected query: [Dexter]
Fetching episode data for [Dexter]
Fetching episode data for [Dexter's Laboratory]
[TEST] from [Dexter - S00E01-E04.mp4] to [Dexter - S00E01-E04 - Early Cuts - Alex Timmons.mp4]
Processed 1 files
My (very excellent) support depends on Windows Store and Mac App Store sales and Patreon support. Paying users, donors and everyone who contributes to FileBot in one way or another will get the very best support.

Ok, so the original name Dexter - S00E01-04 - Early Cuts- Alex Timmons (Chapter 1-4).mp4 isn't a supported pattern and after adding E before 04 and removing the trailing brackets it should work. Thanks
