More Filebot automation needed

Post by theglove » 27 Oct 2019, 10:39

Thanks to help I got in another thread I'm not able to use Filebot via the CLI on my seedbox which is great :)

I'm trying to get things more automated now so I don't have to manually keep typing in the commands.

As an example, when I download something like a TV series it gets added to a main TV folder, then into a show sub folder and then into a series sub folder and I have to do the below manually to each sub folder.

Code: Select all

filebot -rename /PRIVATE/PRIVATE/media/TV\ Shows/Kidding/Season\ 1/ --db TheTVDB  --format {plex.name}
Is there a way to automate this so I don't have to faff about manually typing in commands each time?

The amc script is typically used for all kinds of automation tasks: viewtopic.php?t=215


:idea: You will find lots of examples in this thread on how to have 3rd party tools call filebot, e.g. some users might have uT call filebot on completed downloads, others might use cron to schedule commands to run once per day, etc.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
