Match by Episode Title

Post by rednoah » 20 Aug 2018, 16:38

FileBot does take the episode title into consideration, but Season / Episode number matches always take priority if there is one, which may not always be what we want.


:arrow: Selecting Absolute Airdate Order effectively allows us to ignore the typical SxE patterns and match by Episode Title instead. The {order} binding can then be used to format file names with normal Airdate SxE Order.


:idea: This works because Absolute Airdate Order uses the airdate (e.g. 2002-10-18) as episode number (e.g. 20021018) and never matches typical SxE patterns, which allows the title (e.g. Jaynestown) to take precedence.



GUI: Match by Title

The Presets feature allows you to create easy access shortcuts and custom Match by Episode Title buttons. The key is using Episode Order: Absolute Airdate Order for matching and then using a format such as {order.airdate.plex.name} for the destination path.

CLI: Match by Title

--order AbsoluteAirdate in combination with --format {order.airdate.plex.name} will do the trick. :ugeek:

e.g.

Code: Select all

$ filebot -rename *.mkv --db TheTVDB -non-strict --order AbsoluteAirdate --format {order.airdate.plex.name}
[MOVE] from [Monogatari - 5x01 - Yotsugi Doll - Part 1.mkv] to [Monogatari - S00E15 - Yotsugi Doll - Part 1.mkv]
[MOVE] from [Monogatari - 5x02 - Yotsugi Doll - Part 2.mkv] to [Monogatari - S00E16 - Yotsugi Doll - Part 2.mkv]
[MOVE] from [Monogatari - 5x03 - Yotsugi Doll - Part 3.mkv] to [Monogatari - S00E17 - Yotsugi Doll - Part 3.mkv]
[MOVE] from [Monogatari - 5x04 - Yotsugi Doll - Part 4.mkv] to [Monogatari - S00E18 - Yotsugi Doll - Part 4.mkv]

Looks like the ö / oe prevents an exact title match in this particular case. Replacing oe with ö or o will fix that. Interestingly, the "wrong match" seems to have gotten a boost in this case particular because it was aired somewhat more recently.

Generally speaking, you can always match files and episodes manually:
