Firstly thanks for the great program.
I have only just started using it to rename tv episodes and it saves me alot
of time (used to do it manually)
Now I noticed you have a button called episodes on the left.
Woild it be possible to have the ability to add a tv show name and for the
program to confirm if we are up to date.
Add TV show "True Blood" from TVDB
The software downloads all the episode names or I press a button called UPDATE
and it does that.
Then Pressing a CHECK button it scans some default directories for the
If it finds a match it marks the episode as FOUND.
Then by pressing another button SHOW MISSING the view would be filtered to
show all episodes that haven't been found
perhaps a manual method to add the FOUND flag would be useful.
Thanks for listening
Thanks for your input. It's appreciated. The Episodes panel was important for
renaming when I hadn't implemented the "auto fetch & match" features in Rename
panel. Now it's only really useful if automatic series name detection doesn't
FileBot is not really designed for what you propose right now so it would take
some time. Other tv renaming applications do that quite well as far as I know.
Perhaps then using a web based system to do the storage.
I ran across this http://www.myepisodes.com/
It has the ability to mark aquired and watched.
When you rename then you could update the myepisodes.com with the aquired
I really do like that idea with using an independent online db for keeping all
the records. I can use the RSS feeds for querying, but I have not found any
kind of webservice to mark episodes programatically. You got any ideas?
There is a forum there and I think there is some XML-API available.
Someone wrote the iphone interface for the site so it should be possible.
Using the online system would be good so i could add new episodes via filebot
and watched status via iphone.
Had a look through the forums. There is an XML API in the works, but not yet
available. The iPhone app currently hooks onto the html website to
I have a look at this again once the xml api is out and deployed.
Anybody still interested in this? I'm not planning to add this to the GUI but
it might be a great use-case for filebot scripting.
I am interested in this... thanks
A script that'll output missing eps should be fairly simple via scripting,
I'll code that up when I have time. But updating myepisodes is pretty annoying
without API, so I don't intend to do that.
How to fix it?
