Illegal usage: output folder [...] must be separate from input folder

Post by negative101 » 25 Nov 2018, 18:44

Hi All,

I am having problems with the torrents that i download from EZTV that are not RARed or inside a folder. For some reason Filebot is not moving them to the correct folder. I tried with some variations on the Output folder with the same results. Hopefully someone has an idea how to fix this, thanks! Here is the data:

Script:

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:amc --output "F:/Torrents/Complete" --action copy --conflict skip -non-strict --log-file "F:/Torrents/amc.log" --def movieFormat="G:/Movies/{n} ({y})/{n} ({y}){' CD'+pi}{'.'+lang}" seriesFormat="F:/TV Shows/{n}/Season {s.pad(2)}/{n} - {s00e00} - {t}" plex=host:***** unsorted=y music=n artwork=y subtitles=en,es clean=y "ut_label=%L" "ut_state=%S" "ut_title=%N" "ut_kind=%K" "ut_file=%F" "ut_dir=%D"
Log:

Code: Select all

Run script [fn:amc] at [Sun Nov 25 13:22:45 ART 2018]
Parameter: movieFormat = G:/Movies/{n} ({y})/{n} ({y}){' CD'+pi}{'.'+lang}
Parameter: seriesFormat = F:/TV Shows/{n}/Season {s}/{n} - {s00e00} - {t}
Parameter: plex = *****
Parameter: unsorted = y
Parameter: music = n
Parameter: artwork = y
Parameter: subtitles = en,es
Parameter: clean = y
Parameter: ut_label = 
Parameter: ut_state = 20
Parameter: ut_title = Outlander.S04E01.720p.WEB.x265-MiNX[eztv].mkv
Parameter: ut_kind = single
Parameter: ut_file = Outlander.S04E01.720p.WEB.x265-MiNX[eztv].mkv
Parameter: ut_dir = F:\Torrents
Illegal usage: output folder [F:\Torrents\Complete] must be separate from input folder [label:null, state:20, title:Outlander.S04E01.720p.WEB.x265-MiNX[eztv].mkv, kind:single, file:Outlander.S04E01.720p.WEB.x265-MiNX[eztv].mkv, dir:F:\Torrents]

Re: Issue with torrents downloaded from EZTV

This message is telling us that the output folder must not be inside the input folder:

Code: Select all

Illegal usage: output folder [F:\Torrents\Complete] must be separate from input folder [label:null, state:20, title:Outlander.S04E01.720p.WEB.x265-MiNX[eztv].mkv, kind:single, file:Outlander.S04E01.720p.WEB.x265-MiNX[eztv].mkv, dir:F:\Torrents]

:arrow: Changing the --output folder accordingly will do the trick:

Code: Select all

--output "F:/Media"
