Rename movies & tv shows & move to folders for Jellyfin

Post by wicko »

Hi,
I want to organise my media library to use with Jellyfin.
I'm trying to understand how to rename movies and tv shows and then move the files to folders on my Unraid server.
Also is it possible to automate the process.
Can someone help please?

Thanks

:arrow: The How do I organize files for Plex? manual will get you started. If you're new to FileBot then you'll want to use the Desktop application and process files remotely via locally mounted network drive from your Desktop PC.


:!: Automation is possible, but will require some general familiarity with the Linux command-line for testing and debugging, which is always necessary since things never just work on the first attempt. The tools provided via Installing FileBot on unRAID (e.g. FileBot Node) can help, though I would recommend sticking to the Desktop application if that's what you're most comfortable with.

Thanks. I'll check out the video. Is there a preconfigured format preset for Jellyfin?

Yes. Please read Plex / Kodi / Emby / Jellyfin Naming Schemes for details.
