Unable to select sample file for expression binding

Post by nothinghere » 21 Jun 2019, 20:00

I'm trying to see what data comes back from one of my movies by using the "Edit Format->Change Sample" button, however I can only select a folder.
Avatar Part 1 is always the selected media info, if I manually type in the name of the mkv file it complains about it not being a folder.

Am I missing something or is there a bug?

Windows 10, Filebot version 4.8.5

Nope, it's definitely asking me to select video or audio files, and does not even allow me to select folders.

Regardless, I'd just match files as usual, and then double-click the the Episode / Movie item on the right-hand side to open the Format Editor (as opposed to clicking on Edit Format) which will allow you to test your format expression on live matches.

Weird, with the latest beta I can select a file, but not all the bindings update.

Oh well, seems the double clicking method works anyway, and far simpler for checking multiple files so I'll just do that.
