You'll either have to
(A) write your own custom format without using the {plex} binding at all, or
(B) write your own custom format using bits and pieces of the {plex} binding as necessary.

e.g.

Code: Select all

Movies/{plex[1]}{" [$vf.$vc.$ac]"}/{plex[2]}{" [$vf.$vc.$ac]"}

:!: Either way, you'll no longer be strictly adhering to the Plex naming scheme, although it'll probably work.
Thanks a lot - it works!

Having some trouble with this syntax, probably due my failure to grasp the vagaries of script/cmdline quoting. Here are the key lines from my bash script:

Code: Select all

PVR_LOC="/volume1/PVR"
...
sFilter='!readLines('${PVR_LOC}/ExcludeShows.txt').contains(n)'

YES:

Code: Select all

!readLines('/path/to/excludes.txt').contains(n)
:idea: This is the value you want to pass in.

NO:

Code: Select all

!readLines(/volume1/PVR/ExcludeShows.txt).contains(n)
:!: This is the value you are actually passing in, which is syntactically incorrect Groovy code, hence syntax errors.


Hence:

Code: Select all

--filter '!readLines("/path/to/excludes.txt").contains(n)'

Re: FileBot on the Mac App Store

Post by moonshine »

Hi... I purchade the app on the Appstore and then realized that this version doesn't support command line... I tried to get a refund, but apple refuses "We've determined that your purchase doesn't meet the conditions for a refund." Whatever that means....

Is there anyway to "convert" to a universal license ? (Maybe pay a price difference- I know apple takes a cut)
Thanks.

that's an expensive 1 year license... but i'll give it a try... i don't like subscription model (although I understand why developers would prefer a constant flow of revenue) ... and thats the reasson i bought from appstore ... (shoudl have done more reading about it... )

What's the correct syntax inside of the excludes.txt file? I'm finding contradicting information, some saying you just list the episodes line by line, others saying you need to include the 'n !=' ahead of it.

Re: --filter and fine-tuning

Post by rednoah »

The code is literally reading the file, so this piece of code implicitly specifies the format, which is values line by line:

Code: Select all

!readLines("/path/to/excludes.txt").contains(n)
e.g. /path/to/excludes.txt

Code: Select all

Alias
Firefly
This would be functionally equivalent just specifying the list of values in code instead of an external text file:

Code: Select all

![/Alias/, /Firefly/].contains(n)

:idea: --filter allows you to specify arbitrary code. Maybe your code reads a file and checks if n is in there. Maybe your code checks if n is a specific value or not. Maybe your code does something I haven't thought of yet. It's your code. Anything is possible. Hence you will find different solutions made by different people hand-crafted for different use cases.


:idea: You may find "conflicting" information because some people use the @file syntax for reading command-line arguments from external text files. That's completely different though. But if all args (including the filter option) a read from a text file anyway, then some users might prefer to specify this data inline rather than in another external text file.

Thank you, I wasn't sure as Filebot comes back with the words 'Include' next to each line, as well it doesn't seem to be excluding what I'm specifying as it's being labeled incorrectly anyway. I'm using the syntax laid out in this thread so just wanted to make sure I was applying this correctly before trying to figure out where else the issue is.

In case you could give me any pointers, the show 'Watchmen' is being converted to 'Vekterne' no matter what I do... All other shows seem to be working fine except this one. I realize Vekterne is Norwegian for Watchmen, but still not sure why it's choosing this language for just this show. The show and input filename going into it is english. I am also using '--lang en' in my script, so again not sure what's happening. If you have any advice I certainly appreciate it.

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:amc --output "/home/user/Media" --action move --conflict skip -non-strict "/home/user/Stage" --log-file amc.log --def unsorted=y music=y --lang en --filter "!readLines('/home/user/uScripts/excludes.txt').contains(n)"

Re: --filter and fine-tuning

You can use filebot -list for testing:

Code: Select all

filebot -list --db TheTVDB --q Watchmen -non-strict

e.g.

Code: Select all

$ filebot -list --db TheTVDB --q Watchmen -non-strict --filter "!(n ==~ /WatchMojo|Pitchmen| Vekterne|Watchmen: Motion Comic/)"
Apply filter [!(n ==~ /WatchMojo|Pitchmen| Vekterne|Watchmen: Motion Comic/)] on [249] items
Include [Watchmen - 1x01 - It's Summer and We're Running Out of Ice]
Include [Watchmen - 1x02 - Martial Feats of Comanche Horsemanship]
Include [Watchmen - 1x03 - She Was Killed by Space Junk]
Include [Watchmen - 1x04 - If You Don't Like My Story, Write Your Own]
Include [Watchmen - 1x05 - Little Fear of Lightning]
Include [Watchmen - 1x06 - This Extraordinary Being]
Include [Watchmen - 1x07 - An Almost Religious Awe]
Include [Watchmen - 1x08 - A God Walks into Abar.]
Include [Watchmen - 1x09 - See How They Fly]
Watchmen - 1x01 - It's Summer and We're Running Out of Ice
Watchmen - 1x02 - Martial Feats of Comanche Horsemanship
Watchmen - 1x03 - She Was Killed by Space Junk
Watchmen - 1x04 - If You Don't Like My Story, Write Your Own
Watchmen - 1x05 - Little Fear of Lightning
Watchmen - 1x06 - This Extraordinary Being
Watchmen - 1x07 - An Almost Religious Awe
Watchmen - 1x08 - A God Walks into Abar.
Watchmen - 1x09 - See How They Fly

:!: Turns out " Vekterne" has a leading space in the database, which is probably an errors, so as far as the exclude list is concerned, I'd add both values:

Code: Select all

Vekterne
 Vekterne
:!: readLines() may or may not trim() lines implicitly. It don't know. It might. If it does, then this won't work either.


:idea: Newer revisions of FileBot implicitly trim() all values we get back from TheTVDB, as to avoid invisible leading/trailing spaces messing with us: viewtopic.php?t=1609

Well in the meantime I was researching and found that my Ubuntu server's locale was blank, so I set it to en_US.utf-8. At the same time I added the ' Vekterne' to the exceptions list and reran the script and it worked! So not sure which one solved it but either way I really appreciate your assistance!

Yes, it works. I think the only thing that has changed so far is that you have to install manually (i.e. copy files) but of course we'll see how things develop in the future.

Hello,

I just wanna inform you about changes in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

Now default-jre is OpenJDK 11 :

Did you use the installer/deb.sh script? The script should automatically use the correct repository, by checking if OpenJFX is version 8 or above.

Re: Plex Naming Schemes

Post by fud18 »

I recently noticed that some of my movies were not getting their meta data in Plex unless I manually matched the titles. What I noticed was preventing this was having A|An|The at the beginning. According to Plex's website/forums if you place anything after a parenthesis it will not detect it which allows the files to match correctly. Below are the naming formats I have tried with examples. Any help would be greatly appreciated to get my naming to work like Example 3.
Example 1:
  • The Fly (1986) is matched correctly in Plex, but I want proper sort with the The at the end
    Filebot naming script: {n.replace(':',' - ')} ({y})
Example 2:
  • Fly, The (1986) is not matched correctly in Plex.
    Filebot naming script: {n.sortName('$2, $1').replace(':',' - ')} ({y})
Example 3 (What I would like): Fly (1986), The
  • If the current file does not begin with "A|An|The" the naming is done incorrectly as such
    Hamburger: The Motion Picture (1986) = Hamburger: The Motion Picture (1986), Hamburger: The Motion Picture
    The Fly (1986) = Fly (1986), The
    Filebot naming script: {n.sortName('$2').replace(':',' - ')} ({y}){n.sortName(', $1').replace(':',' - ')}

Re: Plex Naming Schemes

Post by rednoah »

AFAIK, what you would like is is not what Plex would like to see:
https://support.plex.tv/articles/categories/your-media/

:idea: {plex} is the way to go. It may not be what you want, but it'll be what Plex wants and expects. You can do things differently, and maybe it'll mostly work, or maybe it'll sometimes not work, either way, no guarantees once you start ignoring the standard if favor of your own preferences. ;)

Re: Plex Naming Schemes

Post by fud18 »

Thanks for the reply rednoah, I have tried that, but I don't want all the A|An|The's lumped together...makes it a real nightmare to try and remove files if I am bouncing around all over the place. I will face the consequences of the way I want it named if someone can just tell me how to the the A|An|The from the beginning of the title to after the date as provided in my example. I have tested it and it works flawlessly that's why I want to do it plus then I can find them easy in windows explorer to remove movies I no longer want.
