Hi,
thank you so much. Replacing worked very well.
You saved me a lot of work in future.
Greetings!

I would like to request support for renaming e-books. My wife has ThOUSANDS of e-books. Some alphabetized using the first name and some using the last name. If there was a way to scan them and rename them like I do with my TV shows it would be awesome!

Any ideas where the metadata would come from? Is the some sort of TheTVDB/TheMovieDB for eBooks?

If you just wanna rename pdf by title metadata it's easy. Wrote a script for that:
http://filebot.net/scripts/sort.ebooks.groovy

Nothing really, I'd be custom logic like the sort.ebooks script above. But since you can access mediainfo data from scripting you can easily move/rename according to metadata.

My suggestion is that you add www.addic7ed.com , it is where i find the new episodes' subtitles the sooner.
Plus, it has a subtitle for a lot of different episode versions (and for a lot of languages).
If you added it, Filebot would be perfect.

Can't happen until they provide an API: it was recently request on Dec 1st, 2013, so obviously they don't currently have one: http://www.sub-talk.net/topic/463-make- ... d/?p=21532 Unless something has changed I think it's unlikely to happen per this post: http://www.sub-talk.net/topic/1444-addi ... ic/?p=9355

I noticed that subliminal supports Addic7ed (among others) - maybe checking out how they did it could shed some light on the situation?

https://preview-pypi.python.org/project/subliminal/
https://github.com/Diaoul/subliminal
http://subliminal.readthedocs.org/en/latest/

There's also a subliminal synology app that someone else made (http://www.synocommunity.com/packages#subliminal) but it doesn't seem to get updated as often, and has a few bugs that render it unusable for me (bombs out when it finds accented characters lol), but there might be something there that can help expand on what FileBot can do. :-)

Edit: Hopefully if we can add some other subtitle sources, we'll still be able to download what we need when opensubtitles goes down every few minutes, lol.
I managed to get a few subbies this morning, and since then, nothing but /!\ symbols :'-(

If they don't have an API, that means a "page scrapper", and rednoah has said on many occasions that he's not going down the page scrapping route. From the last link I find "BeautifulSoup to parse HTML and XML", which seems to suggest page scrapping.

Yep, plus technically scraping their page is equal to stealing their data, and I don't quite feel like an enabler for this (not that I couldn't do it in a few hours :twisted:)

I'm pretty sure no one of addic7ed.com will ever official allow and encourage anyone to scrape their data. Until they do so I don't I won't be an ass helping people steal there stuff. :mrgreen:

ah phooey :-/

Well, a bit of digging has turned up these fellas that do seem to have an API:

http://thesubdb.com/api/
http://www.allsubs.org/api.php
http://www.api.subtitleseeker.com/

With any luck, some of them may actually have a decent sized database, and more than a 100 subtitles/12 hour anti-leech limit, lol.

Hi vetash,

Please see the above comments regarding scrappers. Unless the site offers an API to legally 'give' you the data, rednoah does not want to create a scrapper to illegally 'take' it.

That being said, assuming it's official (and not just a fan made scrapper), I think this may be what he'd need to make it happen: https://github.com/ramusus/kinopoiskpy

Hey, me again. Found this thread so I don't have to open a new topic. :)
Concerning amc script again: AMC copies the data anyway.
My folder structure looks like this: data/finished.
AMC scans "data" and copies all data into "finished" Both folders are on the same HDD.
Is there an option to "MOVE" instead of "COPY" operations? It would be much faster in my case :D

Thanks in advance

So you mean like --action move right? Though if it's on the same drive you should look into --action hardlink which is like --action copy except with none of the drawbacks. ;)

(also posted as a thread)

My Windows 3.1 machine doesn't support colon ':' in filenames... neither does Windows 95, 98, XP, 2000, 2003, Vista, 7 nor 8.1...

So could you please auto-replace colon ':' with a minus '-' (preferably also with a padded space in case the colon is up close to the main title)

eg: "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey - S01E01" is clearly not valid - which FileBot already know and a prompt will popoup.. However, I cant find a setting that auto-correct these titles !!

the obvious solution would be to replace : with - like this (padded):
"Cosmos - A Spacetime Odyssey - S01E01"

This would be AWESOME !... just like FileBot .. Goddamn AWESOME !!!!

Thanks

nfo creating functionality for movies, just to a simple nfo file containing the link to the imdb page would do.

i.e. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0258463/

You should try Ember Media Manager .. it does that, and alot more.

If you just want .url files then filebot can generate them for you.

*GUI (or maybe just a script) for checking for missing episodes

How much for a gui option that handles special characters etc. and perhaps works for movie collections as well? :D I'm lazy.


As for the ebook-thing. Calibre works, although it's manual-like and goodreads might be something to parse information from. Considering the xthousand ways ebooks are named though.... That'd be a hell of a lot of work.

1.
There's a script for that.

2.
No idea what you mean, but I'm pretty sure it's supported already.

3.
Unless there's an API for book information I won't even look into this. Plus the lack of naming standards would make it difficult anyway.

Hi there!

Just picked up FileBot (Mac App Store version), and have already completely cleaned house in my media folders — many thanks!

Wondering: What are the chances we'd be able to apply OS X tags to files as they're renamed? Would love to embed metadata on this layer (tag/colour-coding for HD vs. SD, for example), instead of inline in the filename.

cheers,
john

I might be inclined to write a Groovy script for auto-tagging files at some point, just to see if it's doable. But at this point I don't intend to add this feature to the GUI Application.

EDIT:

Use at your own peril :P

Code: Select all

filebot -script dev:xattr /path/to/media --action import
This script will import all kinds of tags into Finder (collection, series, y, source, vf, sdhd, genres, etc). It'll only work on files that have been previously renamed (and xattr tagged) with FileBot.

Not gonna clutter the UI with useless gimmicks like this though.

Hmm!

Are there more/different arguments that can be passed? I'm not really clear on how to determine all the options a particular script exposes.

Thanks :)
