Filebot Docker Thread

Post by SLiX » 19 Jul 2017, 17:56

Hi, just started using filebot for docker, thanks for that!
Found no thread about general docker discussion, now there is one ;)

I'm struggling with the correct passing of eg the "seriesFormat" parameter.

I use it like this:

Code: Select all

--seriesFormat "../output/shows/{n}/Season {s.pad(2)}/{n} - {sxe} - {t}"
At execution, I'll get an error saying:

Code: Select all

"--seriesFormat" is not a valid option
Do you have a clue, what my problem is about?

Looks like you didn't read the manual: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=215


Code: Select all

--def movieFormat="M:/Movies/{ny}/{fn}" seriesFormat="S:/TV/{n}/{fn}" animeFormat="T:/Anime/{n}/{fn}" musicFormat="N:/Music/{n}/{fn}"
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.

I have to admit, I read the docs, but I did not get it. Tried it without "=" in between :oops:
Thank you for your fast response, works very good
