Re: HD Concert Hoarder needs help

I've never heard about SetList.fm so I can only say that FileBot has no support for that API. That's kind of what I expected. setlist.fm has been around for well over a decade but I think its API support is a recent development. Since concert sets are can be more "subjective", especially if the mus...

Re: HD Concert Hoarder needs help

Over the years I've amassed many terabytes of files, most of which are HD music concerts I am in the same boat - in fact I was looking for answers to the same question and found this thread. I am mostly concerned with trying to just find concert metadata to establish set lists or at least populate ...

Music: Using sequence number vs. track number in file name

If I am using the GUI Rename function, can I get a format variable or functional equivalent for the track numbers as they appear in the order in "Original Files". Normally, one would strip the number from the file name but a lot of live recordings have track numbers that reflect their origin from th...

Folders no longer getting "crawled"

For the past year Filebot would nicely crawl through all media and supporting info when I dropped a folder in or loaded it. However, having to apply some ownership and permissions fixes my to "unmanaged media" collection (which really shouldn't have changed things much), for some reason - and it may...

That's strange because no matter what I do the match is as I described. So you don't upload images I can't easily give you the screen-shot, but suffice it say I cannot change the behavior initially described that I see in the GUI, so if the CL does the same, then I guess I am wasting my time for thi...

I manage two different formats that I use for episodes in my Plex library.
