Re: CLI filename format with empty values

:idea: You probably mean to ask: How do I use {...} literally in a file name? If it wasn't for using { and } in the file path you want, things would be easy: (imdb-{imdbid}) But since outermost {...} are interpreted by the format engine, we need to be a little bit creative: { any{ "{imdb-$imdbi...

Re: TV Series rename move entire Plex library

:idea: The latest update is almost certainly unrelated.

Re: when renaming, file extention will be omitted when episode title coincidentally ends with file extention string

Can you post real file paths? Please share the TMDB ID or TVDB ID at the very least. Otherwise I cannot run tests. I don't know which series has an episode where the title ends with .mkv so I can't run tests. EDIT: Looks like there is indeed some extension deduplication going on: $ filebot -list --d...

YouTube usually works best. But you can also share via Google Drive or One Drive if that's easier for you. If the use case makes sense, then we'll see about implementing a good solution.

You cannot. If you add new ones then previous ones will be removed.

Each {...} is a variable, so you would use it like this if you want separate SD / HD folders:

I see. You're replacing characters with similar-unicode characters.
