Re: HELP: Filebot 4.9.4 AniDB Caching different from 4.9.3 for Groovy Script!

I had expected that if the mapper couldn't be used for an episode (or special in this case), it would just do nothing or skip that object vs throw an error. The error case is subject to change, and my change from version to version depending on the feedback and kind of issues users run into in prod...

Re: Movies scheme for beginners

Possible but not easy. Intricate custom requirements will require a fair bit of programming experience to create and maintain. Definitely not recommended for beginners. If you already have a format, then you can just add something like this at the end: { '.' + vs } { '.' + vf } { '.' + audio.groupBy...

Re: How to get Filebot to ignore dump folder

What is the name of your <DUMP-FOLDER> exactly? FileBot will ignore generic names by default, so you can use something like Downloads , Staging , Complete , etc. how do i stop this behaviour? i mean, FFS, there has to be a containing folder of some kind; files aren't just spastically spewn across ra...

Re: Restore multi-episode match from xattr

No, worries. Best to use Double-Click ➔ Edit Format to open the Format Editor so it's automatically locked on the specific match type that is currently selected.

Re: Restore multi-episode match from xattr

Re: Restore multi-episode match from xattr

If you want to replace / update the media info in the file name then you can use Plain File Mode . Your plain file format just has to strip out media info from {fn} so that you can rewrite that part. You can make your life easy by putting the media info into a trailing [...] which can easily be matc...

Re: Renaming TV show folders

No worries. Just drop in the original files, and the "copy of your entire library" is then generated by FileBot according to your custom format as you press the Rename button.

Re: Restore multi-episode match from xattr

An empty value you should do the trick:

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:properties --def net.filebot.xattr.store=
You can also manually edit the configuration file. Please read the console output of the command above to find the location of the configuration file.

Re: Restore multi-episode match from xattr

If i copy the file back to b:\1 or any other shorter folder name it still works so it also does not break during copy. That could be the reason. However, do keep in mind that FileBot will cache xattr metadata in memory, so if the file path and the last-modified date don't change (e.g. by moving the...
