Filebot CLI - Ignore Sample files

Post by habber » 22 Sep 2019, 17:16

Hi,

I have been using FileBot CLI (licensed) for a while to move files.
However, my script keeps moving and renaming the Sample files, and not the movie (it probably overrides the movie).

I have looked at the forums and got under the impression that this was not possible due to the exclude blacklist?

Can someone tell me what i am doing wrong?
This is my script for Movies:

Code: Select all

filebot -rename %2 --format "E:/Media/%1/{n}/{n}.{lang}" -extract --action duplicate -non-strict --log-file "E:/Media/amc.log" -r
Please let me know if any other information is required, to help me!

1.
What does the log say? Can you give examples of sample file paths?

:idea: Please read How to Request Help.


2.
Generally speaking, you can always use the --file-filter option to include / exclude files based on arbitrary rules of your choosing:
viewtopic.php?t=4222

:idea: Presumably, you'll want to exclude files with the word sample in the file path, or perhaps just exclude all all small files?

Thanks for the quick answer!
I have totally missed the --file-filter option.

This should do:

Code: Select all

--file-filter "minutes > 10"
