Plex Naming Schemes

Postby rednoah » 12 Sep 2016, 10:03

Plex Naming Standard

Plex has strict standards for naming and organizing your media files.

Code: Select all

Movies/Avatar (2009)/Avatar (2009)
TV Shows/Alias/Season 01/Alias - S01E01 - Truth Be Told


The {plex} binding which will give you the appropriate Plex path for movies, TV episodes, Anime episodes and music files:

Code: Select all

{plex}


Since the {plex} binding will give you a File object, it's easy to reuse some path components and omit others.

e.g. Avatar (2009)

Code: Select all

{plex.name}

e.g. Firefly/Season 01/Firefly - S01E01 - Serenity

Code: Select all

{plex.tail}

e.g. Firefly/Firefly - S01E01 - Serenity

Code: Select all

{plex[1]}/{plex[3]}

e.g. Movies/Avatar (2009)/Avatar (2009) by James Cameron [720p, x264, AC3]

Code: Select all

{plex.derive{" by $director"}{" [$vf, $vc, $ac]"}}

Custom Naming Schemes

If you need to make very specific customizations to the standard Plex naming scheme, you'll want you write your own format expression so you have full control over all the bits and pieces. You can get started by copying the following examples and modifying them to your liking.

Movies

Code: Select all

Movies/{n} ({y})/{n} ({y}){' CD'+pi}{'.'+lang}

TV Series

Code: Select all

TV Shows/{n}/{episode.special ? 'Specials' : 'Season '+s.pad(2)}/{n} - {episode.special ? 'S00E'+special.pad(2) : s00e00} - {t.replaceAll(/[`´‘’ʻ]/, /'/).replaceAll(/[!?.]+$/).replacePart(', Part $1')}{'.'+lang}

Anime

Code: Select all

Anime/{primaryTitle}/{primaryTitle} - {sxe} - {t.replaceAll(/[!?.]+$/).replaceAll(/[`´‘’ʻ]/, /'/).replacePart(', Part $1')}

Music

Code: Select all

Music/{n}/{album+'/'}{pi.pad(2)+'. '}{artist} - {t}
My (very excellent) support depends on Windows Store and Mac App Store sales and PayPal donations. Paying users, donors and everyone who contributes to FileBot in one way or another will get the very best support.
