Can anyone direct me to the tutorials for dummies?

Post by melobyrro » 01 Apr 2016, 03:11

I dont know anything about scripts, coding, etc. Every information I find seems to assume i know this stuff,

this is what im trying to do

I have utorrent downloading files to folder A, once completed moved to folder B,
Utorrent runs SCRU once download is finished to extract it to folder C,
File juggler monitors folder B for video files and copies it to folder C,

That way i have only videos in folder C and utorrent can still upload from folder B.

How do i make filebot to monitor folder C and rename those files and put them in folders with same name as file automatically?

when i manually run Filebot i have this preset expression for TV series

X:/ATV/{n} - {s00e00} - {t}/{n} - {s00e00} - {t}

I don't recommend using FileBot to monitor files (although it's possible). The easiest way is probably to use Scheduler and call filebot/amc a few times a day. You will need some (very) basic command-line skills though.

1. Learn how CMD basics
2. Learn how to make simple filebot commands
3. Learn how to use filebot/amc
4. Learn how to set it up with Windows Scheduler

i can use file juggler to call a command, can i put a script there?

idk what "call a script" mean, do i save a script somewhere, and have a scheduler or file juggler to open it?

do i need to install groovy?

do i need 7zip? or winrar is fine?

1.
Probably. I'd be a pretty shitty tool if it couldn't make command-line calls. :lol:

2.
Command-line call. See CMD basics.

3.
No.

4.
No. FileBot does not care about either.

Then how it'd be?

i tell file juggler to monitor folder C and every time a file is created call command filebot -rename F:/ATV/{n} - {s00e00} - {t}/{n} - {s00e00} - {t}

i did read that, ddnt help much, so its telling me that when i go to execute a command not put filebot -rename, i have to specify full path of where the exe is located correct?

then call a function -rename,

now do i specify the parent folder of where all my tv shows are at?

then i putt -- output and the format?

3 arguments:

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:sysenv A B C

Code: Select all

args[0] = -script
args[1] = fn:sysenv
args[2] = A
args[3] = B
args[4] = C
1 arguments:

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:sysenv "A B C"

Code: Select all

args[0] = -script
args[1] = fn:sysenv
args[2] = A B C
Now have a look at Cmdline and Argument Passing again, and please read the Quote Arguments section as well this time around.
