Request: Custom Matching pattern.

Post by DevXen »

So I have 2 related feature request.

First. A custom matching pattern. So we can tell filebot how our media is named so it can pull out the correct parts of the gil a name to match against.

I have a crazy awesome complex naming script that works well. Until I make a change and have to go through them all again. Then I have to match every single one. Cause the way it matches doesn't like my naming sceme apparently. It has movie (year) and then a lot of additional info. So it would be useful at least for me to be able to add in formats for filebot to search. So anytime I change yours it'll always match them.

I.E.:
Batman - Assault On Arkham [2014] [PG-13] [84 Min] [7.4★] [DVDRip 480p 5.1ch] (Kevin Conroy, Neal McDonough, Matthew Gray Gubler) (Thriller, Animation, Action)

Match: movie name [year] (ignore the rest)

Or...

300 2 - Rise Of An Empire (3D Half-SBS) [2014] [R] [102 Min] [6.1★] [BluRay 1080p 5.1ch] (Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey) (Action, War)

Match: Movie Name (ignore 3D HalfSBS) [Year] (ignore the rest)


Then the second related feature would be to save a database to link things we do rename. That when we put it in. It'll already know what movie/tv show it is so it can already March them automatically.

Thanks,
-Dev

It doesn't though. I can't define my own way to match my media. I can only type in the title and try to match it one at a time that way.

The database it does keep one to undo files. But not too keep that filename linked with the matched into online to rematch it as soon as you load it into filebot. :)

The examples given aren't particularly off-the-beaten-path and I would expect them to work out of the box. The file does start with the movie name, and the year is there as well somewhere, that'll make things easy since it's very close to the typical naming patterns.

xattr does exactly that. If you're using the GUI, just hit F3 to instantly read matches from xattr metadata. If you're using the CLI, use --db xattr instead.
