[Addendum] Find Duplicate Movie or Episode Files

Post by rednoah »

The Find Duplicate Movie or Episode Files script requires xattr metadata to instantly and reliably identify files, so that it can then find Movie and Episode duplicates:

1. Process files with FileBot:

Console Output: Select all

$ filebot -rename  *.mp4 --db TheMovieDB --output . --format '{ plex.id % { " [$vf]" } }' --log INFO
[MOVE] from [Avatar (2009) [2160p].mp4] to [Movies/Avatar (2009) {tmdb-19995}/Avatar (2009) [2160p].mp4]
[MOVE] from [Avatar (2009) [480p].mp4] to [Movies/Avatar (2009) {tmdb-19995}/Avatar (2009) [480p].mp4]


2. Confirm that FileBot has stored xattr metadata so that we can identify files instantly and reliably later:

Console Output: Select all

$ filebot -script fn:xattr .
Movies/Avatar (2009) {tmdb-19995}/Avatar (2009) [480p].mp4
	net.filebot.filename: Avatar (2009) [480p].mp4
	net.filebot.metadata: {"@type":"Movie","year":2009,"imdbId":499549,"tmdbId":19995,"language":"en-US","id":19995,"name":"Avatar","aliasNames":[]}
Movies/Avatar (2009) {tmdb-19995}/Avatar (2009) [2160p].mp4
	net.filebot.filename: Avatar (2009) [2160p].mp4
	net.filebot.metadata: {"@type":"Movie","year":2009,"imdbId":499549,"tmdbId":19995,"language":"en-US","id":19995,"name":"Avatar","aliasNames":[]}


3. Find Movie or Episode duplicates based on xattr metadata information:

Console Output: Select all

$ filebot -script fn:duplicates .
[*] Avatar (2009)
[+] 1. Movies/Avatar (2009) {tmdb-19995}/Avatar (2009) [2160p].mp4
[-] 2. Movies/Avatar (2009) {tmdb-19995}/Avatar (2009) [480p].mp4
1 duplicates
