Re: Designating 'default' audio track

Thank you Rednoah, I understand what you're saying. I'll do some searching for info about calling MKVToolNix, or something similar. It'd be cool if that app could mark "default/forced" for the track identified in my FB script. At the same time, I know there's a limit to how much we can/should seek t...

Designating 'default' audio track

Earlier this year, Kim and rednoah helped with a renaming script that identifies the audio track with highest bitrate, most channels/objects, etc. https://www.filebot.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=11524&start=50 Below is an example of a renamed directory: Terminator 2 Judgment Day (1991) 153 mins [...

Re: Some questions regarding renaming

FWIW follow-up. I generated a <mi.groovy> report from a directory of "Series" media files. The screenshot below represents attributes generated by {ac} ( left column , below) and {aco} ( right column , below). https://i.imgur.com/b4UTkvR.png The {aco} values are closer to the attributes generated by...

Re: Some questions regarding renaming

FYI, I updated the MediaInfo plugin (OSX) and used the local version of Filebot to create a report for my media database (which exists on a server) — I wanted to share the results, as I added some parameters in a custom <mi.groovy> script. Specifically, the existing "AC" column (standard in mi.groov...

Re: Some questions regarding renaming

To close out this question (above) re. <mi.groovy> parameters — I'll assume there's no way to customize the "generate database report" Groovy function (to make it report audio info based on the <useChFilter> definitions in Kim's script.) And I'll assume the reports generated by <mi.groovy> will beco...

Re: How to customize format? 01x01 vs 1x01

Belated thank-you for this addt'l info re. {mbps} parameters. Looking forward to trying it out. Although I'm more of an 'abstract' thinker (artist) I really appreciate the precision and "absoluteness" of the coding, expressions, etc. And, in that light, I sincerely appreciate your willingness to con...

Re: How to customize format? 01x01 vs 1x01

Oh, ok — string.pad() applies to the total number of characters, not just numbers.

Your solutions each worked 100% for me. I think I even understand why.

Thank, Kim.

Re: How to customize format? 01x01 vs 1x01

I'm using GUI via OSX (all latest). I'd like {mbps} to appear with two digits on the left side of the decimal point. e.g. "/EpisodeTitle [ 06.2 mbps].mkv" I've tried the following: {'/' + t}{' ' + mbps.pad(3)} {'/' + t}{' ' + mbps.pad(4)} {'/' + t}{' ' + mbps.pad 2} All of which produce " 6.2 mbps" ...

Re: Some questions regarding renaming

Thank you for all of this, Kim and rednoah. I've got this script/call working successfully. It's really great. Renaming entire library this weekend. I'd like to customize rednoah's "mi.groovy" script to output the same "best" audio stream codec+channels as Kim's code does for my renames. Below is my...

Re: Some questions regarding renaming

I've been trying to find my own answers but the majority of scripting FAQ links here = 404s. So, I'll leave this here and I'll stop, now. I want to learn but it's like there are pages missing. Goal : -rename using 'best' (highest bitrate) audio. Problem : highest bitrate isn't always default stream....

Re: Some questions regarding renaming

After two days more trial/error, I figured out (a) where to save and (b) how to call a custom script. I'd like to go to the next level with automation and I'm willing to do the work. Hoping for help with a couple questions. 1. Kim, is the "def codecList" code intended to be a script that defines a s...

Re: Some questions regarding renaming

Hi Kim. I've spent a few days w/ FAQs and forum posts, trying to learn how to implement your edited codecList script. I used Superimpose to save a UTF-8 encoded version of your def script in a folder on my Synology. I added [{best.Codec+'.'+best.FormatProfile.replaceAll(/\s?\/.*|E-AC-3\+/)}] to my C...

Re: Multiple audio tracks with different codecs and languages

Thanks again — that makes so much sense, that the interface is the interface (and expressions work the same, underneath.) And thank you for the tools. Time to learn about syntax and to compare the data FileBot is getting back from libmediainfo. Even in the short year I've been using FileBot, it has ...

Re: Multiple audio tracks with different codecs and languages

Thank you, I didn't know that about Syno packages. Now it makes more sense. I'll test results running FB on a MacMini that's connected to the Syno (to see if my results differ vs. running the Syno FB build.) Since I'll be trying FB on a diff. platform, it's a good time to ask: Is the GUI (app) versi...

This is the expression I use via CLI (which produces the incorrect codec/channel output, on rename): filebot -rename -r /volume1/Media/UNSORTED/Movies/ --db TheMovieDB -non-strict --conflict auto --output /volume1/Media/SORTED/ --format "Movies/{certification}/{n} ({y})/{n} ({y}) {minutes}mins [{mbp...

I want to make sure any movie with Atmos indicates as much,...
