--apply nfo url

Post by AbedlaPaille »

1. Can i modify --apply url to only get imdb links ?

2. Filebot-made .nfos : I've found that readability is improved with UTF8 and XML selected in notepad++. But the <xyz>abc</xyz> format still bothered me so i made it an XML file to open with Excel. Didn't parse it very well (although it's decent) : https://i.imgur.com/feW9nWn.png so i guess i'm not supposed to do that ? How do you guys read your Filebot made nfos?

1.
Nope.


2.
XML files are primarily meant to be machine-readable, and aren't spreadsheets. Your browser will be able to visualize the tree structure.


3.
You may want to look into the media index script if you want to export everything into a spreadsheet:

Thanks guys. Another question, does --apply import hardlinks instead of copying companion files when used with a --action hardlink ?

--apply IMPORT will always COPY files, and does not inherit any options from the command-line. Typically, companion files are expected to be very small.

When you have a thousand movies and 7 hardlink locations it gets a bit heavy ahah. But no problem, thanks.

Alright, I'll change --apply IMPORT to use DUPLICATE instead of COPY in upcoming revisions.
