Filebot weird season rename with AniDB

Post by kracksickles » 14 Jul 2020, 02:15

I am not sure what has changed, but some shows are renaming with season numbers that relates to TVDB renaming versus aniDB renaming:

It is causing trouble for me to match results on Plex unless I manually rename every episode and folder to season 1.

Can anyone please provide suggestions?

Thank you.

If you're using Plex, then you can't use AniDB, unless you're using the 3rd party HAMA plug-in in which case you want Absolute numbering.


Instead, convert your episodes to TheTVDB naming and then let Plex do it's thing:

:idea: If must use AniDB, but don't want SxE numbers, then you'll need to adjust your custom format and avoid SxE bindings such as {s} or {s00e00}. The {plex} binding is generally recommended, and that will result in HAMA compatible Absolute numbering for AniDB episode information.

Thank you for the quick reply.

I am using the HAMA plug in for plex and absolute series scanner.

Are you suggesting I should change my format expression and eliminate it from renaming the episode file with SxE expressions?

If so, I am not sure what I should change it to since I have used the ones in the examples:

I don’t personally use HAMA, but whatever naming may be recommended by the HAMA developers, FileBot will be able to produce it.

The {plex} binding will probably do just fine:

Code: Select all

{plex}

It looks like Plex is happy with using {plex} as the format expression.

Thank you!
