.: Crazy filenames are messing my Kodi (and my mind)

Post by DecoStein » September 19th, 2018, 2:56 pm

Hi guys. My very first post here. I'm trying to get back to usenet, but there's something annoying me. :-\

I use the latest SABnzbd version and NZBPlanet indexer.

Whenever I download a file, its name come like a letter soup instead of FolderNameS01E01 mkv, for example. Kodi is not able to find/process that way and I don't have to rename every each file manually.

Any hints/sollution fot this issue, please?

Yes, you can use the Deobfuscate.py script (make sure you use v2.3.5 of SABnzbd) that's included with the installation.
Or you enable Sorting and use the "Job Name as Filename" pattern. Make sure to enable the right sorting for the right category.

Thanks, @safihre. "Job Name as Filename" was marked, but it extracts like this

Dunno how to use the Deobfuscate script When I go to "categories" tab, I can't find it (the scrpit). Too bad if I have to uninstall/quit on SAB (again) :(

Make sure to have setup the right category. So this download should be in for example the "series" category. For which in turn you would enable the Sorting (make sure to check the enable checkbox and select the category on the left).
You could also try Sonarr, it will solve all your sorting and downloading problems ;)
