in the filename less than a certain length.
My real problem is after I applied my original filenames and everything works the way I want I seem to have strayed to far away from what filebot can recognize as multi episodes and I can not run filebot on them again without loosing my multi episodes. Over the years I have altered or updated already named movies TV show many times and I want less intervention on multi episodes.
I do not want multi epsiodes to play multiple times from the start and I am no longer bothered that plex do not display all episodes, I have given up that dream and
plex is not going to ever change. I have settled on showing only the first episode of the bunch and having all info in filename.
I name my episodes like so: ( I use a _ instead of the - and omit the E)
Code: Select all
Spy vs. Spy - S01E01_02 - Bomb & Fake Dynamite (2010-09-06).[1080p.AVC.1.181Kbps.30.000Fps].[2.0.AAC].[eng] Spy vs. Spy - S01E01_26 - Bomb & Fake Dynamite & Microbombs & Submarine & Splitting Torpedo & Dynamite & Elephant Ta (2010-09-06).[1080p.AVC.1.181Kbps.30.000Fps].[2.0.AAC].[eng]
When I remember or catch it I run an upfront rename back from _ to -E before using filebot but I would like to eliminate this step before using filebot on consecutive renames. maybe there is a way to tell or make filebot aware of my format. O and I only use filebot online UI.
I have tried other acceptable formats that work with filebot but not plex but normally when it works for filebot it works for plex. also it must stay short
these don't work the way I want:
Code: Select all
I have read many of the other multi episode threads but it does not seem to be what I need.
