Looks like your custom format is already starting to take care of all the special cases you need.
It's still evolving as I keep finding cases to handle. It's kinda fun.

Re: missing New Names

1. Okay. I still think FileBot can help me get a lot of them moved and renamed. 2. Alas, this one is a movie, strange things happen when I use the tv db. ;) 3. Interesting that some of the extras match and some don't. Is this because some got lucky and some didn't with the loose matching? Is there a...

missing New Names

Sometimes there's no New Name corresponding to an Original File.

Is this because I have a bug in my format? Is there a log I can look at to see what's happening with these?

Re: how to fix a movie folder for Plex (i.e. dealing with extras)

Maybe you can use something like this ? {any{fn.match(/Extras|-behindthescenes|-deleted|-featurette|-interview|-scene|-short|-trailer|-other/) ? plex[0]+'/'+plex[1]+'/Others/'+fn : 'plex1'}{plex.toString().replaceAll(/\sCD\d/)}} Thanks, this is great! I've been using a switch statement to sort into...

4.
Just get rid of all the extras first, and then the rest will work out of the box. ;)
:lol: I've spent too much time collecting them over the years, can't toss em now.

what does it mean when name fields are red?

When I'm renaming files sometimes the New Names list all have red fields. When I click on one it'll show a yellow warning triangle. Is there something I should click to read a warning or error message? Also when I click on a red name, the yellow extension shows part of the file name instead of the e...

Re: how to fix a movie folder for Plex

1. I understand you now. 2. Thanks! This looks very useful. 3. I came to FileBot because I need to change my files to meet the Plex naming standard. I do not want to deviate. 4. I believe I have a very typical Plex-noob problem: I have a bunch of media, organized in a useful way. I install Plex and ...

Re: how to fix a movie folder for Plex

@kim I guess I will have a write a script to do something like you suggest. I'm thinking to use filename matching to identify trailers, making of, and behind the scene vids, and anything else gets moved to Shorts or Featurettes or Other or something.

Re: how to fix a movie folder for Plex

Thank you, rednoah, for your excellent help, but I am still not understanding the video after watching it many times. What does processing "folders as a single unit" accomplish? I don't understand why I want to do that. Does this do something to fix the problem of extras showing up in Plex as separa...

Re: how to fix a movie folder for Plex

Is there a step-by-step "how to" on processing folders as a single unit? I'm having difficulty following what's happening in the video. :|

how to fix a movie folder for Plex (i.e. dealing with extras)

I’m new here trying to fix my movie folders and files for Plex. I gave FileBot a shot at my first movie and it didn’t go so well. I was hoping to have FileBot organize the extras as described in the Local Trailers and Extras section of https://support.plex.tv/articles/200220677-local-media-assets-mo...
