Configure Default Database

Post by rednoah »

FileBot uses TheMovieDB (for Movies) and TheTVDB (for TV Series) and AniDB (for Anime Series) by default (unless otherwise specified) in filebot -rename calls and Smart Mode: Automatic actions.


:idea: You can configure filebot to use TheMovieDB by default for all types of content like so:

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:properties --def movie.db=TheMovieDB --def series.db=TheMovieDB::TV --def anime.db=TheMovieDB::TV


:idea: If you are using the amc script, then there are dedicated script parameters for that:

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:amc ... --def movieDB=TheMovieDB seriesDB=TheMovieDB::TV animeDB=TheMovieDB::TV


:!: Note that --db TheMovieDB refers to TheMovieDB for Movies and --db TheMovieDB::TV refers to TheMovieDB for TV Shows.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
