I have multiple sources for some of my TV shows; including OTA (tuner), Cablecard (tuner) and online recordings. All of these recordings are converted/remux’ed by MCEBuddy and then moved to a common folder structure in the following format: (TV --> SeriesName --> Season XX --> “ShowName - SXXEYY - EpName.ext”)
Now, depending on the source, the filename extension of the converted file can be different (.mpg, .mp4, etc)
Here is the issue:
When I select “Skip Reconversion”, it checks the destination folder for a file with the same name AND extension. So, if a show has been recorded via another source and already converted (e.g. ABC.mpg), then MCEBuddy might still reconvert it (into ABC.mp4), due to file extension mismatch.
- Is there a way to get the “Skip Reconversion” feature to not match file extensions?
- If not, is there another way I could achieve this (without changing my conversions to all have the same extension)?
- Finally, if the above is not currently possible, may I request this as a future enhancement? Another additional “nice to have” feature could be to provide some sort of regex match for these checks, which expert users can tweak. In rare cases, the show episode names have been changed on the metadata websites, which can lead to duplicate conversions.
Thanks for the amazing software; keep up the good work!
