Here's my FileBot-Watcher Docker Compose File

Code: Select all

  filebot:
    container_name: filebot-watcher
    image: rednoah/filebot:watcher
    restart: unless-stopped
    environment:
      - SETTLE_DOWN_TIME=250
      - 'INOTIFYWAIT_OPTS=--recursive'
    volumes:
      - ${HOME}/FileBot:/data
      - ${HOME}:/Home
    command: /Home/files --output /Home/Media --def jellyfin=XXXXXXXX --conflict auto --action hardlink --def minLengthMS=0 --def minFileSize=1000 --def excludeList=amc.txt --def movieFormat="/Media/{f.path.match(/Badini/).upperInitial()}/{hd==/UHD/?'4KMovies':'Movies'}/{any{f.path.match(/Short/).upperInitial()}{anime?'Anime':''}{genres=~/Animation/?'Animation':''}{f.path.match(/Documentary/).upperInitial()}{genre=~/Documentary/?'Documentary':''}{info.OriginalLanguage.toLocale().displayLanguage}}/{~jellyfin.id}" seriesFormat="/Media/{f.path.match(/Badini/).upperInitial()}/{hd==/UHD/?'4KShows':'Shows'}/{any{anime?'Anime':''}{genres=~/Animation/?'Animation':''}{f.path.match(/Documentary/).upperInitial()}{genre=~/Documentary/?'Documentary':''}{info.OriginalLanguage.toLocale().displayLanguage}}/{~jellyfin.id}" animeFormat="/Media/{f.path.match(/Badini/).upperInitial()}/{hd==/UHD/?'4KShows':'Shows'}/{any{file.path.match(/Anime/).upperInitial()}{anime?'Anime':''}}/{~jellyfin.id}" musicFormat="/Media/Music/{~plex}" unsortedFormat="/Media/Unsorted/{fn}" --def movieDB=TheMovieDB seriesDB=TheMovieDB::TV animeDB=TheMovieDB::TV musicDB=ID3

      - ${HOME}:/Home

If you're using docker, then you need to ensure that the source / destination file is on the same volume AND on the same volume from inside the docker container. As far software running inside the container is concerned, each bind mount is a separate physical volume, even if this is not so on the host.
