Automated Media Center - Add standard video format

Post by Pillendreher » 09 Sep 2013, 15:17

Hey guys,

I've only been using Filebot for a few days now, so I'm still quite inexperienced concerning this whole stuff. I've been using theAutomated Media Center Script which works like a charm. I have one wish though:

Instead of "Raising Hope - S03E01 - Not Indecent, But Not Quite Decent Enough Proposal", I'd like my files to be renamed to something like "Raising Hope - S03E01 - Not Indecent, But Not Quite Decent Enough Proposal - 1080p".

I tried the following argument which lead to "Warning: Invalid Argument"

Code: Select all

-script fn:amc "D:\Serien_Downloads" --output "D:" -non-strict --def subtitles=en --def "seriesFormat=TV Shows/{n}/{episode.special ? "Special" : "Season "+s.pad(2)}/{n} - {episode.special ? "S00E"+special.pad(2) : s00e00} - {t.replaceAll(/[`´‘’?]/, "'").replaceAll(/[!?.]+$/).replacePart(', Part $1')}{".$lang"} - {vf}''
The last time I really used java was at least five years ago, so I'm a little rusty. Maybe someone could fix the small error for me. Would be really nice :) I'm still trying to get the gist of Groovy, so I don't quite get what all those parts of the argument are doing.

Java is not the issue, using cmdline and passing argument correctly is. If there's " in the format you'll need to escape them with \" for windows cmd to parse argument correctly. This is documented excessively, so check the docs again for details.

Just had a success with

Code: Select all

--def "seriesFormat=TV Shows/{n}/{episode.special ? 'Special' : 'Season '+s}/{n} - {episode.special ? 'S00E'+special.pad(2)' : s00e00} - {t} - {vf}"
but not with

Code: Select all

--def "seriesFormat=TV Shows/{n}/{episode.special ? "Special" : "Season "+s.pad(2)}/{n} - {episode.special ? "S00E"+special.pad(2) : s00e00} - {t.replaceAll(/[`´‘’?]/, "'").replaceAll(/[!?.]+$/).replacePart(', Part $1')}{".$lang"} - {vf}''
Besides the "replace xxx" at the end, I don't see much differences. Ending up with invalid argument though. What should I escape in this case? The {vf} ? Using {\vf\} didn't help either.

Because the first format doesn't contain any " where the second does. Since " is already a console special character arguments get passed wrong.

There is literally a whole paragraph on this issue in the AMC docs for people who don't understand cmd or sh. PLEASE READ TFM

I've already read both the paragraph and other threads on this board, but I didn't quite get it. Thx for the explanation, now the 2nd line works as well. AMC is really a magnificent script! :)
