Extras folder causing issues with movie name in parent directory

Post by stephen147 » 11 May 2019, 16:08

1. Extract this https://we.tl/t-qxjiVRXoTw to the desktop.
2. Change the username or path to where you extracted it for the PowerShell code below.
3. Run the two lines below in powerShell.
4. The folder name will take on the extra files media info and name it John Wick (2014) 1080p as opposed to naming the folder John Wick (2014) 2160p

Code: Select all

$movieFolderPath = "C:\Users\username\Desktop\John Wick (2014) 2160p"
filebot -script fn:renall "$movieFolderPath" -non-strict --format "{n} {y} {vf}" --file-filter "fn != /(?i)Extras/" --db TheMovieDB --def target=folder --action test --log info
:!: If that wetransfer zip file expires here's the tree /a /f . cmd command of that:

Code: Select all

C:\Users\username\Desktop\JOHN WICK (2014) 2160P

Sorry, I didn't mention that I did and that worked as expected.

See, Kodi uses the folder called extras and with this plugin https://kodi.wiki/view/Add-on:Extras it can display them and play the contents.

Basic structure in Kodi for extras is:

Code: Select all

...\Lucy (2014)\
...\Lucy (2014)\Extras\

If you're formatting a folder, then all MediaInfo bindings are mapped to the next best video file inside that folder, and I guess sub folders come first. Probably makes sense to only consider direct child files though.


EDIT:

Prefer direct descendant video files when formatting folder objects with upcoming revisions.

Ah, I see. So the next best is in the sub-folder! I've always assumed it was the 1st.

:?: So, is that a yes on fixing this behavior? :)

Presumably, alphabetically, this is the order in which it's currently discovering media files within the folder:

Code: Select all

Extras/Calling in the Cavalry.mkv
John Wick (2014) 2160p.mkv
Yes, it does make sense to primarily rely on direct decedents of the video folder in question, and only check indirect decedents if there's no direct decedents.
