With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.
This applies to all users and visitors world-wide.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

Batch Scan adding nfo files to valid files list

Post by spider099 » Tue Aug 01, 2017 12:19 pm

Using 1.0.7 - downloaded from official website
Os 2012r2/WIn10 - 1703

When using Open Source>Folder (Batch Scan) the scan picks up *.nfo files as video files and adds them to the queue (00:00:00)
The nfo files have the same name as the "normal" video files which get added as you would expect.

The directory scanned is a TV season directory with say 20 episodes - so has 20 mkv's 20 nfo's 20 jpg files and a few others e.g. season.nfo - which does not get added.

Example below of a directory with only 4 MKV's but "8" valid files added to the queue.

Code: Select all

Re: Batch Scan adding nfo files to valid files list

Is batch scanning the same as grabbing an entire folder of file for encoding?

That's a bit silly indeed, but we can't help if if libavformat recognizes them as valid input files.

It's interesting that such titles go through the video preview scan and are still considered valid, though.

Why are you putting nfo files in your TV recording folders?

a) Maybe because he's talking about TV recordings renamed to scraper-compatible filenames and then moved into his Server's "keep" folder?

b) Maybe because XBMC/Kodi/Plex/etc automatically adds them to any source folder (when configured to do so)?

c) Both of the above

I'll bet the XML content of those .NFO's is somehow the reason why HandBrake's condition tables detects them as 400P25 8-bit "ANSI": http://kodi.wiki/view/NFO_files/tvepisodes

Maybe HandBrake then decided it was "obligated" to include all "video" files, even the misidentified ones. After all, it knew enough to reject the MJPEG thumbnails.

Yes batch scanning is "grabbing" the whole folder

The nfo files are there because i use Emby and like most Media servers has the option to save info locally rather than keep it in the database.

The mkv's are BluRay rips not recordings - not that that should make any difference.

Yes the nfo might have something in them that Handbrake misidentifies as a "video file" but why is it even reading nfo(xml) files

I have noticed that i get this problem on 2012r2 and not Win10 - although both instances of HB are the same version number.
