Renaming subtitles with {plex}

Post by Aequita »

Hey everyone,
few-day-old newbie here.

I'm currently using the very simplistic way of renaming the items in my library with

Code: Select all

X:\Location\{plex}
(viewtopic.php?t=4116)
which fully fills my needs.

But several times, when trying to rename subtitle-files this way, all different languages get renamed to the same file-name. I've searched this forum, the Plex-forum and google upside down - everywhere everyone with the same problem gets told "Use the {plex} naming scheme, it will rename subtitles properly".

Here's an example:

Code: Select all

\ToRename\
   \Avatar (2009)\
      Avatar (2009).mkv
      \Subs\
         Avatar_german_forced.idx
         Avatar_german_forced.sub
         Avatar_english.idx
         Avatar_english.sub
becomes

Code: Select all

\Movies\
   \Avatar (2009)\
      Avatar (2009).mkv
      \Subs\
         Avatar (2009).idx
         Avatar (2009).sub
instead of

Code: Select all

\Movies\
   \Avatar (2009)\
      Avatar (2009).mkv
      \Subs\
         Avatar (2009)_GER_forced.idx
         Avatar (2009)_GER_forced.sub
         Avatar (2009)_EN.idx
         Avatar (2009)_EN.sub
Am I missing something?
Asking for a little push in the right direction.

FileBot has limited support for subtitles, especially for less well-organized subtitles, especially for sub/idx bitmap subtitles. Depending on what you have and what you want, it might be possible, but it will be an uphill battle.
