Clutter File Size and Video Length Limits

Post by rednoah »

FileBot will exclude video files that contain certain keywords (e.g. Extras, Trailers, Featurettes, Interviews, Behind the Scenes, Shorts, etc) by default. However, this rule does not apply to video files that either have a large file size or a long video length, as to avoid false positives. You can use the net.filebot.media.clutter.size and net.filebot.media.clutter.length system properties to configure the internal file size and video length limits.



e.g. set default 150 MB file size limit and 20 minute video length limit:

Shell: Select all

filebot -script fn:properties --def net.filebot.media.clutter.size=150 net.filebot.media.clutter.length=PT20M
:arrow: If the file is larger than 150 MB or longer than 20 minute then the file will be processed as primary video file even if the file path might indicate (correctly or incorrectly) otherwise.



e.g. disable limits to include all files:

Shell: Select all

filebot -script fn:properties --def net.filebot.media.clutter.size=1 net.filebot.media.clutter.length=PT1S
:arrow: If the file is larger than 1 MB or longer than 1 second then the file will be processed as primary video file even if the file path might indicate (correctly or incorrectly) otherwise.



e.g. disable limits to exclude all matching files regardless of file size and video length:

Shell: Select all

filebot -script fn:properties --def net.filebot.media.clutter.size=0 net.filebot.media.clutter.length=PT0S
:!: If limits are disabled, then FileBot will exclude all file paths that contain keywords such as Trailer, Sample, Featurette, Short, Behind the Scenes, etc. So you won't be able to process certain TV Shows (e.g. Trailer Park Boys) or Movies (e.g. Free Samples) that by unhappy coincidence happen to match one of those keywords.
