Character names in filename

Post by RBCC » 28 Oct 2018, 05:49

I'm renaming cartoons, I'm trying to use the gui and want to use tvdb and my db. But I would like to have this as my renaming convention: [airdate] [character] [name of cartoon] . if tvdb doesn't have and airfare the a text file will have it. The other fields will be filled by tvdb. How do i do this? John

Here's an example on how to read a CSV file into a Map data structure which you can then use to do custom lookup and replacement:
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=182


This post includes an example on how to read information from a nearby companion file sharing the same name as the video file:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2072


:idea: I can't really give you a specific solution without knowing any specifics about your use case (i.e. example file / folder structure for testing).

Sure. Using TheTVDB for matching and then adding custom code to your custom format are two entirely separate things that don't exclude each other. A bit of coding skills will help immensely with the latter.
