Selecting from multiple results

Post by Alfke » 30 Jan 2017, 19:35

Hello,

I'm running Filebot from CLI on Centos 6.8. When I run filebot with non-strict matching, I get this result:

Code: Select all

Auto-detected query: [Fantasy Island, Island]
Fetching episode data for [Fantasy Island]
Fetching episode data for [Fantasy Island (1998)]
Fetching episode data for [The Island (2004)]
Fetching episode data for [The Island (NL)]
Fetching episode data for [The Island (2010)]
Fetching episode data for [Islands]
Fetching episode data for [The Island]
In this case, filebot correctly selected the first result [Fantasy Island]. However, if I wanted to select and use the 2nd result [Fantasy Island (1998)], is there a way filebot can prompt me to make a selection and use my selections from the list of results?

Thanks

Nevermind, I RTFM'd and found my answer :). I need to use interactive mode.

1.
If you're running commands yourself, then console-interactive mode is indeed the easiest solution:

Code: Select all

--mode interactive

2.
If you're using simple -rename calls, then you can pass in the query yourself:

Code: Select all

--db TheTVDB --q "Fantasy Island (1998)"

3.
The filter option is ideal for more automated solutions:

Code: Select all

--filter "n != /Fantasy Island/"
