Specials not getting season/episode info?

Post by scf »

Filebot 4.9.7, MacOS UI version.

With rename format:

Code: Select all

{n}, s{s}e{e.pad(2)}, "{t}"
Fetching from The TVDB (yes I have an active account), I always get "se" returned for the specials/episodes string. Regular episodes are correct.

Did something change? I would swear this format worked back in the 3.x days.

Special Episodes do not have an {e} episode number (never have I think, but my memory doesn't quite go back all the way to 3.x) instead they have a {special} special number.

:idea: You'll want to use built-in bindings such as {s00e00} that take care of these things, special episode numbers, use "Season 0" for special episodes, absolute episodes, multi-episodes, etc:

Code: Select all


:idea: You can check bindings and corresponding values like so:
