saving crc32 to xattr

I have a post download script that uses `crc32` for filenames. Since it's costly to run that while renaming files I was hoping FB would save that in xattr data alongside the metadata. Yet I don't see it in the .xattr directory: net.filebot.filename net.filebot.metadata I don't see it store inside th...

Re: Don't print "[null]" for non-existing metadata

:?: To remove the “[]” as well?

Code: Select all

{ ' ' + (audio.language - null).replace('[','').replace('[','') }
Is there a simpler form of the above?

Re: Changes to ar binding - format no longer working

I would rather the aspect ratios were all "Film" ratios and not intermixed with "TV" ratios but I guess this depends on the metadata in the file itself? 4:3 should be 1.33:1 5:3 should be 1.66:1 etc. I even see some ratios in metadata where instead of a ":1" there is a "0" 1.370 Here is a list of al...

Hey Red TLDR I found a solution - bottom of this post I had been changing the result of Aspect Ratio in my formula from this: 2.40.1 to this: 2.40∶1 Since colons are not allowed in filenames on mac I had been using the ratio character which is allowed, but that stopped working in my format sometime ...
