AMC script skips video files in subfolders

Post by korzynski » 19 Jun 2020, 04:00

The AMC script appears to silently skip movie files when they are more than 1 level deep.

When I run the AMC script directly on a folder that contains movie files, it processes the movie files and ignores the video extras, as expected.

However, if I instead run the script against the parent folder that contains subfolders with movie files, then the script appears to processes the subfolders and reports ignoring the video extras within, but it does not process the movie files and the logs contain no indication that they even exist. This occurs whether the script is run with the test or the move action.

I don't know if it's related, but when I run the script against the parent folder with the move action, the log also contains numerous errors stating "Failed to read media characteristics: DateTimeParseException: Text 'UTC 2017-05-03 02:52:50 / UTC 2017-04-30 18:00:28' could not be parsed, unparsed text found at index 23". These errors don't occur when the script runs with the move action against a subfolder, or with the test action against the parent or subfolder.

I am running the FileBot docker container rednoah/filebot under CentOS 7
The media source and destination are located on an NFS share hosted on a Synology NAS and mounted at /mnt/Media

Heres my command line for scanning a subfolder

Re: AMC script skips video files in subfolders

Also, since the NFS mount doesn't support xattr, I have enabled the option to store metadata in plain text files:

Re: AMC script skips video files in subfolders

This log entry tells us that permissions are ok since FileBot was able to traverse the folder structure:

Code: Select all

Ignore video extra: /volume1/Library/CouchPotato/100 Bloody Acres (2012)/100 Bloody AcresBR-Rip-trailer.mp4
This log entry tells us that there is at least one file path that is explicitly excluded because it has been processed already:

Code: Select all

/volume1/filebot/excludes.txt (1)

:?: Perhaps this one file isn't processed the second time around because it's not supposed to be processed a second time as per --def excludeList option?


:idea: If it can see some files, but not others, then that would indicate a NFS issue. Perhaps you only copied the beginning of the log and that why it seems to stop abruptly, but if you really have dozens of files, and it's only listing a few ones from the first folder, and then crashes and stops logging, that would be most strange indeed.

My first check would be to list files with FileBot to see the file system that FileBot sees through the docker and NFS abstraction layers:

Code: Select all

filebot -mediainfo -r /path/to/CouchPotato --format "{f}"

:!: net.filebot.logging.debug=ALL will flood you with logging, which may or may not be useful. In this case, it's probably going to prevent us from seeing the problem by flooding us with logging irrelevant to local file system operations.

That's very strange, because the excludes.txt file is empty

The log file ends abruptly because I terminated the process after the first couple of folders. I have let it run through the entire folder tree, but it does the same thing on all of the folders and so I thought the included data would be enough to demonstrate the problem.

I use the mediainfo tool and it lists all of the files, including the ones that are skipped by the amc script.

So I tried copying a handful of movie subfolders to a new parent directory in order to run a full test scan without having to terminate it in the middle, and surprisingly it worked! The AMC script logged all of the files and correctly identified the movie files.

I suspect that this is somehow related to permissions, but don't know yet why this problem would only occur when scanning the parent folder and not when scanning a subfolder, since the permissions are the same on all folders. But the permissions are pretty janky since I'm accessing the files from within a Docker container running on CentOS over a mounted NFS share hosted on a Synology Btrfs filesystem using ACL permissions. I'm still trying to figure it out, but it seems like its probably not a problem with FileBot.

I'll post back here if/when I figure it out

Re: AMC script skips video files in subfolders

Post by korzynski » 22 Jun 2020, 04:44

I think that the main issue was my misunderstanding of how the script processes files. Since it appeared to be processing the folders in alphabetical order, I assumed that I should see a log entry for each movie file as it encountered each folder. But it looks like it doesn't log the movie files until it's finished scanning through the entire folder tree and logged any skipped files or processing exceptions.

Since I have about 15,000 files in total, this first phase takes a long time, and I never waited long enough for it to finish logging the exceptions and get to the live media files. I assumed it wasn't working and terminated the script.

I ultimately installed FileBot on the Synology NAS directly to remove the complexity described in my previous post. It's working now, but I assume it would've also worked over the NFS mount as well if I just let it run long enough.

Well, I guess it's always a good idea to look at the complete log, or to run the amc script on only a single folder for testing, if the complete complete log isn't feasible. :lol:
