Determining the best approach to use FileBot with Television media?

Post by deadspatula » 11 Jun 2019, 17:59

I have a Synology DSM218+ and I am trying to automate renaming and sorting my media for my Plex Server.

I was impressed with FileBot Node's output with movies and purchased a license, but have run into issues with TV series. Mixed results with matching. It seems to be great 90% of the time, but those 10% go off the rails

So i tried implementing strict mode. My first dry run I found that if it had issues with one series, it dumped the entire run into unsorted and did nothing.

I then Tried to remove ambiguous series and add a renaming scheme for unsorted, but then it failed if I had an ambiguous series remaining, probably because of the renaming scheme.

At this point, I don't think I can effectively use Filebot Node to name and move my Television media. Even with well named files, I hit a bunch of errors. So I am looking into having to use the Filebot GUI on another computer, probably a laptop that I can wire into the network. I've read vague mentions that I can fix this issue via that program. But that lead to a question.

Can I use FBN to automatically sort files natively on my Synology, and then work with the FB GUI on my windows laptop to address problem files, or would I need to manage it entirely through the FB GUI?

Or should I work with the helpful folks here who better understand how to work the program to try to quash my matching issues?

No idea. I don't know if there's a universal answer for the case by case problems you describe.


I'd need to look at the logs and see what files are mismatched to see if there's a way to make them not mismatch:

:idea: Generally speaking, the Desktop app is absolutely the way to go if you need any kind of human intervention or supervision.

Thank you for the reply, which confirms what I had concluded. Handling just TV content via the desktop app isn't too bad, and most of it still works well, the big issue just being the added network overhead of the data being moved by the program on the second device when the data starts and ends on the NAS.

I think some of my issues might be fixed by using filters on a per series basis (Node always matches episodes of the original ReBoot to the 2015 series when possible so perhaps an age >= 1825 days would fix the issue), but that isn't really Node's use case, as you have noted here and elsewhere. I think Node's designed use case is not what I am doing. I still very much like FileBot, and thank you for all your hard work.

If you could post logs and / or file paths of the mismatches, then I could have a look and see if there's a smart way to deal with them.

As an example, here is the output related to Reboot specifically:

[Process completed]
We can see that for seasons 1 and 2, episodes 1-10 were matched to the new series. But given that series naming conflicts are only one of my issues (Not knowing if the content I have acquired is airdate order or dvd order, inconsistent naming, ect), I am not surprised if I will need to do more manual work overall.

Thanks I'll add it to my test data. This one is bad luck, FileBot can't differentiate at all, and so it's effectively random, decided by random (in this case) useless markers such as airdate being defined or not, or more or less recent or not, or file paths being ever so slightly more or less similar.

:!: If you have different shows with different sort order, e.g. Firefly DVD order, then you definitely need to use the GUI, and carefully double check matches before renaming.
