limit+timeout the attempts filebot makes to TheTVDB

Post by Alfke » 08 Apr 2020, 20:45

Hi Rednoah,

I've noticed when TheTVDB has API issues, it makes FileBot throw java errors, even though there are no issues with Filebot or my Linux system....so I have a couple questions:

1) Is it possible to limit+timeout the attempts filebot makes to TheTVDB's API?
2) Is it possible to create an option for filebot to "failover" to TheMovieDB as a backup if API connection attempts to TheTVDB craps out?

Food for thought...

1.
Yes, the net.filebot.CachedResource.retryLimit and net.filebot.CachedResource.retryDelay system properties can be adjusted if the defaults don't work for your use case:

Code: Select all

export FILEBOT_OPTS="-Dnet.filebot.CachedResource.retryLimit=5 -Dnet.filebot.CachedResource.retryDelay=PT5M"

2.
No, but you can just use TheMovieDB instead altogether. AFAIK, it's more stable, though somewhat less popular / update-to-date than TheTVDB.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
