Make existing settings to also work with filenames *.eng.srt

Postby Ronstang » Fri May 21, 2021 8:10 pm

I have an existing favorite that adds brackets to everything past the date in parenthesis in a filename so:

Frankenstein (1931) TCMHD.mkv
Frankenstein (1931) TCMHD.srt becomes:

Frankenstein (1931) [TCMHD].mkv
Frankenstein (1931) [TCMHD].srt

But now some of my automatically generated files have multiple subs so now they are named:

Frankenstein (1931) TCMHD.Eng.srt
Frankenstein (1931) TCMHD.Spa.srt

And I need the same settings to also add the brackets around the channel identifier for files named with the language identifier added to the filename.

Thanks

There can be many different ways, but they will depend much on the filename-formats, so if ...

Channel-ID ==== 2-8 Capital letters
Language-ID == 1 Capital letter, then 2-5 lowercase letters
File-Format === "Name (year) Channel-ID.Language-ID.extension (but only sometimes with .Language-ID)

Then could use RegEx(1) with a checkmark in "v2", with a Match and Replace like...
^(.+\(\d{4}\) )([A-Z]{2,8})(\.[A-Z][a-z]{2,5})?$
\1[\2]\3

Thank you....but I am obviously doing something wrong since with those parameters BRU reports that RegEx(1) is invalid. I tried copying and pasting and entering it all manually with no difference.

The top "Match" line is not getting copy/pasted properly.

Another method...

1:RegEx, (checkmark) Simple
Code: Select all
Match:  %1) %2.%3
Replace:  %1) [%2].%3

Match up to the closing parenthesis (of the date)
eat the space
Match up to the next (.) dot (i.e., the channel)
Match everything else (the language & whatever else follows)

Add the spaced back in & the brackets...
