Re: hd binding not evaluating to SD, HD or UHD on some files

@kim Thanks for the code refactoring. Those changes work better, but I still have the issue that I am encountering. @rednoah, I checked the file that is having a problem and it does not have a recognizable video stream in ffprobe or mediainfo. So that is clearly the problem. So now I want to figure ...

hd binding not evaluating to SD, HD or UHD on some files

I have a naming scheme based on the {plex} binding that uses {plex.tail}. I do some processing to determine if a file is 4K or not and then put those files into a folder structure like this: 4K\ ..\movies ..\tv movies\ tv\ this works well when using {plex.tail} as I am able to prefix the file path w...

Re: Legality of a private build.

I've build Filebot by myself and removed all the licensing stuff from it. Is it legal for me to use it as long as I don't distribute my build? I just don't get the whole "don't be a d*** license", source being open and having to pay for the software. What is your time worth? Why would you spend the...

Re: Can you disable CD[0-9] naming scheme in AMC script?

I call filebot from a cron schedule from my host OS. The reason I do this is that all the parts of my media workflow run from separate docker containers, and I haven't figured out how to call filebot via script from another container. So as a workaround I schedule filebot to run every 30 mins with v...

Can you disable CD[0-9] naming scheme in AMC script?

is it possible to turn off the CD[0-9] naming scheme in the AMC script? I never deal with actual files that are for CD1 or CD2, usually, AMC will name files this way when there is a duplicate or a file has been downloaded twice and the download script has appended a .1 or .2 to the file.

Re: if/then/else option to do nothing

is the preset capability only available in GUI or is it something that can be used from CLI as well?

edit:
Looks like the Preset capability is only in the GUI. My media server is remote and headless, so it will be a little bit of effort to use the GUI for this.

write xattr data to .nfo file when -no-xattr is enabled

My environment doesn't support xattr, but I'd still like to save that information if possible since there are so many advantages to having the xattr data.

Are there any options in the current version for doing so? Could this be written to the .nfo instead or some other file?
