Support for Movie Series?

Post by ashfallen0 » 14 Jan 2012, 11:05

Let me start off by saying that this is the best program on the net for tv episode renaming. EVER. In the movie department, it's still lacking a few basic points; though I may just be missing them.

Movie sequel series:
e.g. James Bond, Rambo, or as I have observed any sequel that is not named explicitly 1,2,3 or I,II,III in the original production title.

I use the following naming schema:

Code: Select all

{n} {t}[{y}][{vf}][{resolution}][{vc}-{ac}][{imdb}]
which for other films that are one-offs return accurate data such as:
G.I. Joe The Rise of Cobra [2009][274p][644x274][XviD-AC3][1046173]

This is because I wish to show my collection based on the alphabetical grouping, not by year. My folder structure is: Film\Genre\File.
I could always just move the tagging to be year first, but in a diverse group such as sci-fi, where there are usually sequels I wish to have them together for the ease of playlist creation/organization on my media server.

In the cases of films such as James Bond, with my schema I get resolved names such as :
Casino Royale [2006][234p][580x234][XviD-MP3][0381061], and I must then go back and manually input the prefix of "James Bond - " to dozens of movies.

My basic question boils down to is this a shortcoming of the open subtitles database parsing, or is there a tagging schema that will allow such formats as "Series Title - XX - Film Title [rest of my schema as exampled]"

I'm pretty sure that none of the databases I use has that information. Casino Royal is just Casino Royal. Not sure How filebot could know about the movie series. Maybe TMBd has more metadata but I believe not. So it's mainly a problem where i'd get that meta-info from, if have that I can add bindings for that easily.

TMDb v3 supports that now. There will be new bindings {collection} for the movie series in the next release.

You probably already know, but for the movie nfo that goes at the bottom as <set></set> to be included in xbmc, just above the <fileinfo /> and </movie> tags

Hi,
I noticed, that the {collection} Tag only gets the english name, instead of the one for the prefered language.
In my case it is german, exp. Avatar from tmdb

is it a Bug or just forgotten?

best greetings

Language preferences are ignored for any extended data. Does TheMovieDb even support localisation of movie set names?

Sorry for not writing exact enough. As I tried to mention with the exp. from tmdb - they do support.
I'm was just wondering, that other language specific tags - as the name - are scraped correctly.

Just set to English when retrieving further information while formatting. Language preferences are only respected for the primary lookup.

So it is normal, that filebot does not scrap collections in prefered language.

Is it possible to implement it?

thx

Just hardcoding it to german would be very easy.

But by the time its evaluating the format expression it doesnt know about the original preferred language of the data so it's kinda mafan to implement at this point.
