I've been using FileBot since 2015 summer. It was cool and effortless at those times on my Synology DS115J NAS (CPU 800mhz + RAM 256MB).
At first, in 5 minutes, renaming was completing for 8GB average movie. I could even rename all movies within one FileBot renaming script call.
After Java 8 update, movie renaming became hard to process. Average 8GB movie renaming took 30minutes last year. I've auto-splitted the movies by folder, just before the processing start. And I've even seperated the each FileBot renaming scripts call, to ease the load on worker process.
With the beginning of this year, it was just became impossible. Even after 18 hours, it's still waiting the process to be completed for a 4GB movie... And I have to kill that process everytime.
I've even set a limit for Java for 128MB usage.
The TVDB renaming for smaller files works fine and takes 5-10 minutes for each file.
I have no idea what causes the process to fail o wait that long. It might be Java, or anything else, maybe other tools needed for scrap. The regular TheMovieDB API call via curl takes a few seconds to respond.
- Is there any way to make it faster within lower memory consumption?
- Or maybe is there a direct call for search?
- Any method exist, which cleanese the file name and generate a search query?
