Need help sorting Doctor Who classic into correct episode numbers

Post by digitalirony » 10 Apr 2019, 21:42

So I have all of my Doctor Who files, which have a naming convention like this:
Doctor Who - S01E01 (001) - An Unearthly Child - Parts 1-4:

Code: Select all

  -Doctor Who - S01E01 (001) - An Unearthly Child (1) - An Unearthly Child.avi
  -Doctor Who - S01E01 (001) - An Unearthly Child (2) - The Cave of Skulls.avi
  -Doctor Who - S01E01 (001) - An Unearthly Child (3) - The Forest of Fear.avi
  -Doctor Who - S01E01 (001) - An Unearthly Child (4) - The Firemaker.avi
As you can see all of the files are S01E01. When Doctor Who Classic was released, I guess they thought of each sub story 'arc' as an episode, which was made up of parts.
However on the DB's like TVDB, these are actually labeled like this:

Code: Select all

  -Doctor Who - S01E01 (001) - An Unearthly Child (1) - An Unearthly Child.avi
  -Doctor Who - S01E02 (001) - An Unearthly Child (2) - The Cave of Skulls.avi
  -Doctor Who - S01E03 (001) - An Unearthly Child (3) - The Forest of Fear.avi
  -Doctor Who - S01E04 (001) - An Unearthly Child (4) - The Firemaker.avi
The obvious thing to do, is just change SXXEXX to match. But I am not sure a good way to do this. Everything I try always ends up overwriting S01E01 four times, as filebot thinks all of these are E01(rightly so).

I have 26 seasons like this, with hundreds of episodes, so I realllly don't want to do this manually.

I suppose the file order aligns with the episode order just fine. You can just do manual matching. It'll be minimal effort if files and episodes align right away.

Is there a way to do this via cli? This is a remote machine and I don't have the UI to use.

If you remove the

Code: Select all

S01E01 (001)
part of the files I think it will work like normal rename/match if files have the episode names

do all the files have the (1)...(4) ?
then you can use this

Code: Select all

{n}
{def newE = fn.match(/(?:\w.+.-.+.-.+\()(\d{1,2})(?:\).-.+.+)/); 
def newTitle = fn.match(/(?:\w.+.-.+.-.+\()(?:\d{1,2})(?:\).-.)(.+)/); 
' - '+'S'+s.pad(2)+'E'+newE.pad(2)+' - '+newTitle}
and then rename/match like normal

same in offline "F2 mode" mode

Code: Select all

{fn.before(/\s-\s/)}
{def newS = fn.match(/(?:\w.+.-.+S)(\d\d)(?:E.+)/); 
def newE = fn.match(/\w.+.-.+.-.+\((\d{1,2})\).-.+.+/); 
def newTitle = fn.match(/(?:\w.+.-.+.-.+\()(?:\d{1,2})(?:\).-.)(.+)/); 
' - '+'S'+newS+'E'+newE.pad(2)+' - '+newTitle}
or
maybe you can use

Code: Select all

{model.sxe}
or

Code: Select all

{model.s00e00}
to compare with
if more then 1 with the same "episode id" then replace the

Code: Select all

{model.e}
with "(1)...(4)" part
BUT what about the title part ?

I am not sure what to do with the expressions you supplied. Is this something I can pass into a --filter, or this for the UI still?
Yes, all of the files have the (1)..(4), but some 'episodes' are longer or shorter(some have 7 parts, some have 3). Will that matter?

if the e.g. "(1)" is not equal to the episode e.g. s01e01 or e.g. (4) = s01e04 then this will not work

FileBot CLI Command-line interface usage manual

Code: Select all

https://www.filebot.net/cli.html
e.g.

Code: Select all

filebot -rename "Generation Kill" -non-strict --format "{n}{def newE = fn.match(/(?:\w.+.-.+.-.+\()(\d{1,2})(?:\).-.+.+)/); def newTitle = fn.match(/(?:\w.+.-.+.-.+\()(?:\d{1,2})(?:\).-.)(.+)/); ' - '+'S'+s.pad(2)+'E'+newE.pad(2)+' - '+newTitle}"
(most be a on 1 line)

if not equal numbers, then remove "S01E01 (001)" part is the best?

Yes, -list -rename will do just that, rename files in order of episode listing.
