How to extract and rename?

Post by xadox » 16 Apr 2012, 12:43

I would like to extract rar files from a fix folder to a fix folder and rename them in one step.
Since I have no clue how to realise this it would be nice if someone can lend me a hand with it.

filebot -extract /path/to/archives/ --output /output/folder/
&&
filebot -rename /output/folder/ --output /path/to/final/destination/

Thx. Is there also a way to extract the files to series name folders?

Currently I am extracting the files with WinRar. Then I move the files to the NAS in the right series folder. And finaly I rename them with FileBot.

Extracting does't apply any special series/movie matching logic. You can script things the way you want if you really need to.

EDIT: FileBot can move files into any folder structure. Just define your template --format as absolute path. e.g. X:/TV/{n}/Season {s}/{episode}
