Usage scenario:
  • Have old media files (movies, tv, anime...) not processed yet and not added into media library

  • Just to see result how Filebot works

Follow these steps:
  1. Using FAQ SSH terminal (eg. PuTTY) connect to your QNAP NAS

  2. Execute:
    Bash:
    /usr/bin/rtorrent/bin/filebot-postprocess.sh [path_to_media_file_or_dir]
post process example usage Sample usage:
  • Postprocess single movie in a directory:
    Bash:
    filebot-postprocess.sh /share/Download/Ant-Man.2015.Blu-ray.1080p.x264/

  • Postprocess all media files in directory:
    Bash:
    filebot-postprocess.sh /share/Public/Movies/


avoid duplicate processing same media file Please note that when processing media files twice, filebot will skip already scanned one. This avoid duplication of unnecessary scrapping tasks. This is useful when doing a scan of one directory containing multiple media files.

Filebot will skip also single media postprocess request. Eg. if doing test like this:
filebot-postprocess.sh /share/Download/Ant-Man.2015.Blu-ray.1080p.x264/ - OKAY!
Then again...
filebot-postprocess.sh /share/Download/Ant-Man.2015.Blu-ray.1080p.x264/ - SKIPPED
Even if target content was deleted.

There is a way to remove already processed media list. Please remove these files in Rdownload share:
  • settings/filebot/*
  • logs/filebot*
Or by FAQ SSH:
Bash:
rm -f /share/Rdownload/settings/filebot/* /share/Rdownload/logs/filebot*
