Yes, you just have to customise your format to preserve that part as well, since FileBot will only preserve the file extension: { fn.match(/[.]ts/) } :arrow: See Companion Files (Type 1) for details. :idea: Alternatively, you can generate the .ts bit for some files but not others using if-then-else ...

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...
