Linear Rename

If the file listing (or input argument order) aligns naturally with the episode list, then you can use -list -rename to rename files / episodes in linear order, bypassing automatic matching (and any potential mismatches caused by misleading file names) altogether.

e.g. Rename files and episodes in linear order:

Code: Select all

filebot -list --q Firefly --format {plex.name} -rename *.mp4

e.g. Rename files and episodes in linear order using --filter to select a specific interval of episodes:

Code: Select all

filebot -list --q "The Daily Show" --filter "airdate >= /2007-01-08/" -rename -r .

(requires FileBot r8411) e.g. Rename a movie file by numeric ID:

Code: Select all

filebot -list --db TheMovieDB --q 19995 -rename *.mp4
