Re: Filesize limit?

I use the GUI for these files, drag & drop - I do not use folders in the paths for movies or extras. FB should NOT be looking at folders when I drop files directly into the GUI. This is a case example of WHY it should not look at folders. Just because I have the word 'extras' in a foldername, does n...

Re: Filesize limit?

<groans internally...> I should have trusted your gut a little earlier, red... None of my FILES have the 'clutter' words in the filenames, but the FOLDERS do. That is, Z:\Movies\C\C=Extras - typical path for the bits & pieces that aren't working now. I just tested some sample files in different fold...

Re: Filesize limit?

Can you provide one full file path for one of the ignored files for testing? Because basic test cases such as this one work regardless of file size as far as I can tell: X:/Movies/Avatar.2009.mp4 OK, further testing results after checking paths: it is the Synology NAS that's the problem. When my Dr...

Re: Filesize limit?

OK - I believe there's no follow-up at this time, red - if there's no FB feature in place that covers this; then this post will simply serve as a note in case something is found later... I don't use scripts or plex or other media library, so there is no auto-cleanup of clutter or auto-filtering; I d...

Re: Filesize limit?

Hey, red - I'm simply doing what I've been doing for years; renaming TV & movies, but also DVD 'extras'. The 'extras' format is simply shorter than the regular format. i.e. Backdraft (1991) [137 min] (1A,1S) (SE) [Kurt Russell, William Baldwin, Robert De Niro] [Action, Crime, Drama].mp4 and Backdraf...

Filesize limit?

I've just had to rename all my media files, and now find that FB will not touch files under about 150mb in size. Is there a system- or programmed- limit to the size of files that FB will process in the current version? Specifically, I use one format for movies, and one for the movies' DVD extras, et...

Need to pull YEAR of S01E01 of a series

After TheTVDB's overhaul last fall, I've seen many new 'specials' added which shouldn't be there, often with prior year's one-offs or other non-series items, that cause the episodelist.airdate.year(min) field to bring in a year that is wrong. I'm working on cleanup of those, but meantime, I've done ...

Re: series naming does not include year anymore

Thanks - removing the braces seems to have done the trick.

*I know I can replace names with the replace function; I have a lot, which fill up the FB buffer - so I have to use an external CSV file.

Hi, red - I've just found a situation that my formats don't cover. A new series "What We Do in the Shadows", which has a 2019 season year, had its pilot movie from 2014 entered into TheTVDB as a Special. As a result, the {episodelist.airdate.year.min()} is now 2014, rather than 2019 for the 'Season ...

Re: BURN SUBTITLES INTO FILES

FileBot simply organizes the filenames for you; it doesn't do anything to the files themselves. There are lots of (free & paid) tools that will help you with that, though. Videohelp is a great resource (https://forum.videohelp.com/threads/364372-How-to-easily-burn-in-hardcode-srt-subtitles-to-mp4-mk...

In the GUI, on the Episodes tab: The 'close' icon (red 'x') is at the top-right corner. It's tiny!!!! I often do a number of episode checks on different shows, which opens new tabs each show, but when I want to close them, it's tricky to accurately click on the 'x' as I have to move the cursor left ...
