    Does the same apply to music such as MP3 files?
    My understanding is that video is all about naming things correctly, while
    audio is about tagging things correctly.

    When it comes to teach Plex to do things your way, having the right folder structure helps tremendously.
    There are many cases where users complain that their $sampler_album is split apart by Plex into several other albums or the loose collection of single files of an artist they have in that one folder is attributed to a whole different album with 'Various Artists' as the Album Artist.
    If you have both the meta tags and the folder/filenames in order, this won't happen.

    Both meta tags and the file/folder names are taken into account when making a 'guess'. (It is all 'heuristics'. Although the meta tags get a very high 'weight', In some 50/50 situations, the file /folder names can push the balance into the right direction.)

    Makes sense. Best to have ID3 tags and proper file and folder structure.

    I can't help you with that. @rednoah42 is the guy to ask about Filebot.

    • Plex: How to do the settings well?

    Please open a new thread and do not "hijack" this one here.

    The code I posted should give you the destination paths you asked for. But ultimately it's up to you how you want to name files and folders. Best to consult the Plex naming documentation.

    The {plex} format should work well for Plex, but it won't necessarily name things the way you asked for previously.
