Source Media {vs} and {source}

Post by rednoah » 21 Nov 2019, 15:06

The source media (e.g. BluRay, WEB-DL, etc) can only be detected based on the file name.

  • {vs} ... the standardized source media value regardless of which exact pattern was a match (e.g. any match for BluRay / BDRip / BD50 / etc yields BluRay)
  • {source} ... the exact pattern match based on the file name (e.g. match for BD50 yields BD50)

FileBot uses the following patterns:

:idea: FileBot will check not only {fn} (file name) but also {original} (original file name recorded via xattr) as well as {mediaTitle} (embedded media title) for source pattern matches. The order of precedence is mediaTitle, then original, then fn as last resort.

:idea: Changes in classification and additional patterns can be added upon request. Please post change requests (including example file paths) here.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
