Does anyone have this working on Windows 8? I am able to execute the command directly (by looking the exact syntax in the Logger Tab) but I can't get it to work through uTorrent, I have even added it to run on any state change. Task manager shows nothing running and the command prompt window never appears.

Suggestions welcomed.

The moment I posted it I tried the following and found a solution:

Code: Select all

cmd /K filebot -script fn:utorrent-postprocess --output "D:/Media Library" --action copy --conflict override -non-strict --def subtitles=y artwork=y "ut_dir=D:\Media Library\_Torrents\The Collapsed 2011 DVDRiP XVID-TASTE" "ut_file=Thanks\Torrent Uploaded by Boobsman.txt" "ut_kind=multi" "ut_title=The Collapsed 2011 DVDRiP XVID-TASTE" "ut_label=" "ut_state=3"
Which resulted in a command prompt remaining and stating: "'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." This is odd as normally invoked prompt has no issues; adding JAVA path "C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin" to system PATH environment variable fixed the issue.

Thanks for the great script!

One question, could it be adjusted to use multiple output folders (movies, music and tvseries are all on diferent drives with me).
At the moment, I solved this by using scheduled tasks instead of the integration with utorrent.

Grtz,
Sam

Read "Customize Paths" where it's says "multiple drives". You just have to define an an absolute path with the format extpession for each category.

Would it be possible to add Pushover Notifications to this script? https://pushover.net/

Sure, they seem to have a nice API. You could start by sponsoring me buying the app? :P But why not use the E-Mail Gateway?

Great! Used this code (for TV shows) and works like a charm 8-) : --output "//server2011/" --def "seriesFormat=G$/ServerFolders/Series/{n}{'/Season '+s.pad(2)}/{n} {s00e00} {t}"

Thanks,

Sure I'll buy you the app. ;) The only issue with using the email gateway is that you can't change the application name or icon.

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:utorrent-postprocess --output "F:/Downloaded/_automated/_postprocess" --action copy --conflict override -non-strict --def "seriesFormat=tv/{fn}" "animeFormat=anime/{fn}" "movieFormat=movie/{fn}" subtitles=n artwork=n "ut_dir=%D" "ut_file=%F" "ut_kind=%K" "ut_title=%N" "ut_label=%L" "ut_state=%S"

Is this correct? Cause I cant for the life of god get it to run with this, tried with 3-4 different downloads and none got processed

What's the console output?

All the %VARs are resolved by utorrent. If you are testing standalone u must either fill in the variables or add arguments to make it switch into standalone-mode:

I should be able to get console output like this, right?
filebot -script fn:utorrent-postprocess --output "F:/Downloaded/_automated/_postprocess" --action copy --conflict override -non-strict --def "seriesFormat=tv/{fn}" "animeFormat=anime/{fn}" "movieFormat=movie/{fn}" subtitles=n artwork=n "ut_dir=%D" "ut_file=%F" "ut_kind=%K" "ut_title=%N" "ut_label=%L" "ut_state=%S" >> "F:/filebot.log" 2>&1
Anyhow, I ran a manuall command like so;
filebot -script fn:utorrent-postprocess "F:\Downloaded\Torrents\seeded" --output "F:\Downloaded\_automated\_postprocess" --action copy --conflict override -non-strict --def "seriesFormat=tv/{fn}" "animeFormat=anime/{fn}" "movieFormat=movie/{fn}" subtitles=n artwork=n
Which processed everything in the dir, so I'm guessing theres something wrong with uTorrent. Could it be that I'm using uTorrent 2.2.1? (I perfere this verision alot more over the newer ones because they are so bloated)

EDIT: I can see now that in uTorrent 3.0 they added the %K to uTorrent, its it possible to go without this? (Nothing happends when I remove the %K from uTorrent "run this program" and download another torrent)

EDIT2: Ok so I installed the newst uTorrent (3.3.2?) and everything works for the most part, but how can I make sure that "processed" movies/series end up in "output folder"/"torrent name dir"/"torrent name.avi/mkv" (sometimes they only end up in "output folder"/"torrent name.avi/mkv")

Thanks alot!

It was actully the %K which was the problem, console said nothing and outputed nothing either which was wierd actully. But I've updated to uTorrent 3.3.2 and that solved it (the files get processed now). Anyhow another small problem of mine is,

how can I make sure that "processed" movies/series end up in "output folder"/"torrent name dir"/"extracted or copied name.avi/mkv" (sometimes they only end up in "output folder"/"extracted or copied name.avi/mkv")

:)


EDIT: solved with:
filebot -script fn:utorrent-postprocess --output "F:/Downloaded/_automated/_postprocess" --action copy --conflict override -non-strict --def "seriesFormat=tv/%N/{fn}" "animeFormat=anime/%N/{fn}" "movieFormat=movie/%N/{fn}" subtitles=n artwork=n "ut_dir=%D" "ut_file=%F" "ut_kind=%K" "ut_title=%N" "ut_label=%L" "ut_state=%S"

FALSE, didnt work.

I have this in my uTorrent log, but none get executed (eg. no filebot.log, and no new files in "the new dirs", and no CMD window opens)

I've made sure filebot is in my PATH variable (I can launch filebot from cmd), I've checked that I got 32bit java and installed 32bit filebot

(but these commands work if I manually launch them from CMD)

So what does the console log say? The console log is the text that is written into F:/filebot.log

Everything works perfectly as far as I can reproduce it.

Files:

Code: Select all

It all came down to this little line,
-DuseNativeShell=true
Setting that to false fixed everything :-)

Glad you could fix it, but -DuseNativeShell=true|false does not affect cmdline processing in any way, you probably did something else along the way.

What would be a simple way to ignore movies? (extracting and copy takes too much space)



filebot -script fn:utorrent-postprocess --output "E:/torrents" --action copy --conflict override -non-strict --def subtitles=y artwork=n "ut_dir=%D" "ut_file=%F" "ut_kind=%K" "ut_title=%N" "ut_label=%L" "ut_state=%S" --def "seriesFormat=C:/TV/{n}/{fn}" "movieFormat=E:/{n}/{fn}" --def xbmc=hostname --def xbmc=localhost

You can't. Because only by processing everything it can know what's a movie and what's an episode.

What you can do is customize the script and ignore certain files according to rules that work for you.

Yeah i got that, but i really cant figure it out.

Could you make a rule to ignore processing completely if you put a torrent in a specific directory?

I'm not gonna put everybodies special requests into my sample script but I guess you should be able make things work via --def ignore=regex. Each filepath that matches this regex will be ignored.
