How to import text file or spreadsheet to filebot

Post by huhuvav »

Hello everyone,

I have imported all my movies in my google drive to google spread sheet, i want to rename the list of movies mentioned in spreadsheet/ text file to imdb id, is there a way to do it?

2) is there a way to modify the video format in file bot ? Example: if a movie is in .mkv format convert it to .mp4 with out loosing quality of video and audio.

Thanks in advance.

You can drop in text files in Original Files and New Names. As a template for New Names, your text file should work. But if you want to load in a list of file paths into Original Files then those file paths must be absolute.

Unfortunately, FileBot cannot transcode video / audio / container formats.

FileBot only works with files. Unfortunately, FileBot does not work with lines in a text file.
