Description

Some series and episode names contains UTF-8 characters, or characters that are troublesome for various file systems, e.g. :/\åäö.

Example: "Bröllopet - Vigseln.mkv", that my system tried to record for my wife, that where exported over a SMB filesystem....

I've attached a patch which allows the end-user to select "filenamecleaning", that will replace anything that's not "simple ASCII" or is know to be troublesome with a '_'.

#1 Updated by Hein Rigolo about 9 years ago

Can we not combine this with the "Replace whitespace in title with -" option and change that to "Create Non-UTF8 filenames" ?

Replying to [comment:1 Rigolo]:

Spaces are fine by me, the "replace whitespace in title with -" will mess up the filenames in my view.
I think this are 2 distinct problems, one being users that don't like space, one being filesystems that simply can't cope with extended characters, or even worse, filenames that are totally out there.. "24/7 Watchdogs" .. try to store that on any regular filesystem :)
Or try to access anything with a ":" in the filename from windows.
