Can I manually add a database to FileBot? Trying to add a porn database

Post by Tile6852 »

Filebot can rename movies, shows, songs, and anime but I want it rename my porn collection. The fact that I cannot add a database manually is a bummer. Is there anyway I can use Filebot to rename the porn I have from some database?

You can "add a database" in a sense by writing the code that transforms the file names you have into the file names you want, possibly by making network requests to some external service.

See [POC] Custom Format Server for inspiration.

That is way beyond my knowledge. i was hoping it would be as easy as adding some website like how filebot has TheMovieDB for example.

Unfortunately, it's not that easy. Each database implementation you see in the GUI is thousands of lines of code that "talk" to the unique webservice API of that specific database. But that's the easy part. The "Movie Mode" or "Series Mode" client-side logic that is common to all databases is the hard part.
