Is it possible to ignore tv?

Post by BillyTheKid »

Hi,

Is it possible to set file bot to ignore tv and only run for movies?

Below is my current script;

Code: Select all

C:\Users\User\Downloads\FileBot_4.9.6-portable\filebot -script fn:amc --conflict auto --output "Z:/Shared Videos/Video" --action duplicate -non-strict "Z:/Shared Videos/Torrent/2_Completed" --log-file amc.log --def excludeList=amc.txt --def movieFormat="{fn =~ /2160|UHD|4K/ ? '4K Movies' : fn =~ /UFC|ufc/ ? 'UFC' : 'Movies'}/{plex.tail}" seriesFormat={plex} unsorted=y --def gmail=
Thanks

Would something like this work?

Code: Select all

C:\Users\User\Downloads\FileBot_4.9.6-portable\filebot -script fn:amc --conflict auto --output "Z:/Shared Videos/Video" --action duplicate -non-strict "Z:/Shared Videos/Torrent/2_Completed" --log-file amc.log --def ignore="S\d+E\d+|\d+x\d+" --def excludeList=amc.txt --def movieFormat="{fn =~ /2160|UHD|4K/ ? '4K Movies' : fn =~ /UFC|ufc/ ? 'UFC' : 'Movies'}/{plex.tail}" seriesFormat={plex} unsorted=y --def gmail=

If you could separate TV Series episode files and Movie files ahead of time, then yes. If you want to rely on amc script movie/series auto-detection, and then do nothing in the series case, then the amc script is not suitable for your use case.


e.g. ignore files with "TV" in the file path, and then force Movie Mode for all input files:

Code: Select all

--def ignore="TV" --def ut_label=Movie

:idea: You can also ignore episode files based on some S00E00 or SxE pattern as shown in the previous reply. This may not work for everyone though, but might work well for you if all your episode files fit the pattern:

Code: Select all

--def ignore="S\d+E\d+|\d+x\d+"
