Multiepisode specials

Post by devster » 07 Feb 2018, 18:51

I have a few specials from Dexter. The following are the outputs:

Code: Select all

$ filebot -list --q 'dexter' --filter 'special && special < 5' --action test -rename Dexter\ -\ S00E01-04\ -\ Early\ Cuts-\ Alex\ Timmons\ \(Chapter\ 1-4\).mp4
Apply filter [special && special <5] on [125] items
Include [Dexter - Special 1 - Early Cuts: Alex Timmons (Chapter 1)]
Include [Dexter - Special 2 - Early Cuts: Alex Timmons (Chapter 2)]
Include [Dexter - Special 3 - Early Cuts: Alex Timmons (Chapter 3)]
Include [Dexter - Special 4 - Early Cuts: Alex Timmons (Chapter 4)]
[TEST] from [/mount/tv-shows/Dexter/Specials/Dexter - S00E01-04 - Early Cuts- Alex Timmons (Chapter 1-4).mp4] to [/mount/tv-shows/Dexter/Specials/Dexter - Special 1 - Early Cuts Alex Timmons (Chapter 1).mp4]
Is it possible to force the detection of multiepisodes when they are also specials?

This works = not a specials thing

Code: Select all

Dexter - S00E01-02.mp4
result
Dexter - S00E01-E02 - Early Cuts: Alex Timmons
This does NOT work = Feature Request ... support for e.g. 4in1 Multiepisode

Code: Select all

Dexter - S00E01-03.mp4
result
Dexter - S00E01 - Early Cuts: Alex Timmons (Chapter 1)

When dealing with multi-episode files, you may need to take special care that files are correctly named and numbered using common patterns such as SxE-Ex beforehand:

Code: Select all

$ filebot -rename . --db TheTVDB -non-strict --format "{plex.name}" --action TEST
Rename episodes using [TheTVDB]
Auto-detected query: [Dexter]
Fetching episode data for [Dexter]
Fetching episode data for [Dexter's Laboratory]
[TEST] from [Dexter - S00E01-E04.mp4] to [Dexter - S00E01-E04 - Early Cuts - Alex Timmons.mp4]
Processed 1 files

Ok, so the original name Dexter - S00E01-04 - Early Cuts- Alex Timmons (Chapter 1-4).mp4 isn't a supported pattern and after adding E before 04 and removing the trailing brackets it should work. Thanks
