Re: Updating names with keeplink

1. Usually they don't but in some shows they do, or rather, the databases initially have all episodes as "Episode 1", "Episode 2", ... and someone later updates the titles. One example is "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver". If you process a file within minutes of release, this might happen. The so...

Re: filename.ts.meta renames to filename.meta

The key is testing your custom format with a real file / episode pair so that you can test with the specific corner case at hand.

Re: Music Video Ranaming

FileBot can rename music video files, assuming AcoustID can match the audio track. This may work for some files but not others, depending on the audio fingerprint. Alternatively, if metadata is already embedded into the file then that will work as well: https://www.filebot.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t...

Strict Mode will indeed ignore files that aren't already somewhat reasonably well-named.
