Re: AMC: Help with Deluge post process on Windows

1. Because in the early 1980s someone at Microsoft decided to do their own thing, instead of copying Unix like everyone else. 2. Yes, you will have to modify your script so that your script will call filebot the way you want. 3. If you double-click a *.cmd file then the default file association open...

Re: AMC: Help with Deluge post process on Windows

1. You can't use bash scripts (i.e. *.sh files) on Windows. You'll have to write your own glue logic script in something that works on Windows, e.g. as CMD script akin to this one: https://github.com/filebot/plugins/blob/master/cmd/jdownloader-postprocess.cmd 2. A valid --output folder is required f...

Re: Failed to process [...] because [...] is an exact copy and already exists

Long story short, I couldn't get the duplicates script to work even after enabling the .xattr directories and making sure both source and destination had filled .xattr directories (by moving them to a temporary directory, then renaming them). If you're looking into xattr, then you're already on the...

What kind of cleaning and processing are you looking for in the context of books and comics? You can write all your code in a big local format, but I don't think FileBot has much to offer...

Re: Using {model} for dealing with collections holistically

Re: Linux shell exit code or last message

1. As for solving the problem at the source, upgrading to the latest and greatest Java 14.0.1 would be my first step. 2. If the FileBot process crashes, then the process will most assuredly terminate with a non-zero exit code, likely dump lots of debug information into stderr too. :idea: You may nee...

Re: Kodi Notification 401 Unauthorized

You'll need to use curl via --def exec if you need to do HTTP requests with BASIC authentication. The amc script itself does not implicitly support BASIC authentication via user:pass URL scheme.

e.g.

Code: Select all

A minor version difference probably won't make a difference, unless your format is very intricate and specific about newly introduced MediaInfo properties.

Re: Custom databases via --db db.groovy

Well, the main reason we don't have support for niche databases isn't APIs, those can be implemented in a day or two. The problem is support for niche content types. FileBot has no way of identifying and matching "books" or "comics" or even "music" for that matter. That being said, if you use --db f...

Re: Used MediaInfo Version?

Because whichever working libmediainfo.so appears in the library path first and was thus loaded self-identifies as 19.09.


:idea: You can use this command to see how the filebot startup script works and where it might be searching for libraries:

Code: Select all

Alternatively, if FileBot simply exited with a different error code for "is an exact copy and already exists" and for "Skipped because already exists", then I could do my own deletion/moving via scripting. I'd have to invoke FileBot separately for each individual file, but again, CPU time is cheape...

All FileBot purchases are one-time purchases. Your license will not automatically renew, and cannot be renewed manually, other than simply purchasing a new one. ;)

Closing and re-opening is what I'm trying to avoid since it's a nuisance and I'm a lazy butt. Any chance that it could also compare the file size so that if the file size is different, it will generate a new hash instead of using the old one simply based on the same filename? I'll look into it. Pro...
