    Yeah, I tried 4.7 and 4.7.2

    4.7.2 definitely works.

    Hi,

    I am using filebot for renaming TV Shows. It's a very awesome tool. There is only one thing I am missing when it comes to the {plex} scheme, and I am also not sure if this can be build by manually specifying a format: I have file names like mycoolshow.s04e01.german.720p.forced.idx however filebot does not pick up the forced part of that name. It includes forced subtitles, so according to the plex guides this should be named to "MyCoolShow - S04E01 - MyCoolTitle.ger.forced.idx" instead, filebot wants to rename that without the forced keyword in the name. This will result in unenforced subtitles and also often clashes with the regular subtitles that then end up having the same filename. Is there a way to fix that?

    So .german.720p.forced refers to .ger.forced subtitles? FileBot won't pick it up if your filenames are too bad. .german.forced might just work.

    You can always force that tag from the filename yourself in the format:

    {'.'+fn.match(/forced/)}

    It seems that the {plex} style doesn't check for forced at all. I tried renaming a file to showname.s01e01.ger.forced.sub and it still didn't pick that up.

    However, editing the style to be {plex}{'.'+fn.match(/forced/)} works, thanks!

    I am just getting familiar with filebot...its really amazing. I wish I had known about it 2 months ago. I wasted 20+ hours renaming things or trying to write a python script to do same.

    So anyway, now that I have found it, I figured I would keep it simple and use the {plex} binding.

    However, the first folder I dropped was for the TV series "Black Mirror" and everything works great, however Black Mirror is a little strange in that there is one episode that was not in a season proper, but was a Christmas special. See here I am suspecting that the {plex} script logic doesn't check for specials...?

    only @rednoah42 might be able to confirm that.

    In the meantime: Specials are using the season number 00

    Man I wish I would have seen this post about a thousand files ago, lmao
    This is an awesome idea and I will be downloading now to give it a try.

  • KiladKilad Posts: 16Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    Ok after using this all day yesterday and today I have to say that this program is awesome. There really needs to be a link to this program in the Media Preparation section for Plex. The program is straight forward and easy to use. I like the Validate button that removes the colon that is very handy. The time that this program has saved me converting an old iTunes database into plex format named files is immeasurable but has to be more than a hundred hours.

    Agreed, I love, Love, LOVE Filebot. I was hesitant to install it at first because I'm vehemently against installing Java, but broke down a few weeks ago and yes it's AWESOME. I wish I hadn't been so stubborn before, it would have saved me many, many unhappy hours (re)naming every single one of my episodes. Thanks for creating this awesome app!

    Another thank you for Filebot. It has saved me hours and hours of time.

    Filebot has been a life saver for me and is part of my regular routine when adding media to my Plex server... its definitely the easiest renaming tool I have ever used for video. Does Filebot have any future designs to include music files? Considering how in depth music files can get, I can understand if there's no desire there :) I currently use MusicBrainz for my music, for those of you unfamiliar with it you should definitely check it out. It saved me months of work fixing all of my 1TB worth of music files to get Plex to recognize it properly.

    Kudos to Filebot! What a great app!

    At work now but off the top of my head there's a button in Filebot to switch format.
    Music/TV/Movie.

    But again I'm on an up to date version.

    FileBot is now experimentally available on the Windows Store:
    https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9nblggh52t9x

    This version will be installed and updated automatically by Windows and includes it's own internal JRE so you don't need to worry about or install Java at all.

    Yes. There is many ways.

    You can use the vc, source, vc and group bindings to recreate the scene naming format. Alternatively, you can use something like fn.after(/German.DL/) to retain bits and pieces of the original filename.
