Yes, you can do multiple if-then-else.

Re: Trying to reprocess old music that already has cover.jpg

If it works, it works. I guess you had FileBot Node generate that amc script command. Makes sense to just use that as-is in this case then.

Re: Filebot Mismatching Show (when using --q <id> to force a show)

You can use the series name / year to force a series instead of the numeric ID. The former is bit more human readable. ;)

The --apply import option might work:

:idea: Note that the amc script probably isn't well-suited if you don't actually need any of the movie/episode auto-detection features.

If you force The Baby via --q 393566 then that is what you get. You can solve the problem by forcing the correct series, or by at least not forcing the wrong series. --q 271955 --q "The Chase (US) (2013)" e.g. $ filebot -rename The.Chase.US.S03E04.720p.WEB.h264-KOGi.mkv --db TheTVDB --q 271955 --act...

Re: Filebot didn't work with tv series

If the loading indicator keeps running, then FileBot is not frozen. It's likely just stuck doing some network operation, waiting for a response that isn't coming due to network issues, maybe doing a few retries as well, and will eventually timeout and either work, or show you an error message.

Re: More than 2 episodes in 1 file.

AFAIK, {emby} expects S03E18-E21 multi-episode naming, and so you'll have to write your own custom format if you want something different. If you organize files for 3rd party software, then S03E18-E21 multi-episode-range is the number format you want. If you just want S03E18E19E20E21 for no particul...

Re: Renaming Music Videos

Plain File Mode custom format expressions as used above will have to be tailored to your file paths. So "simple naming" means nothing for that purpose, because it doesn't actually tell us how files are named. You'll want to specify exactly how files are named, and include example file paths.
