#11 Manage multiple NFO to get generic to more precise options

I'm using only one nfo for my entire playlist (nfo.txt). It would be cool if I did not have to set the name of the nfo in the cmd.

Like I keep my nfo.txt (or *.nfo) in the directory and Prismedia know that the NFO is the same for all uploads.

If you do want to keep the .txt extension maybe look for the file with the same name as the folder :

Graveyard Keeper/
    Graveyard Keeper.txt
    video1.jpg
    video1.mp4
    video2.jpg
    ...

Since I put Prismedia and my videos in two different drives and Windows do not really help you in the terminal (or I know better the bash shortcuts maybe) typing as less as possible some paths on screen is always good :)

Hello,

Interesting idea, we could get the root directory name and search for NFO based on it. It could be a good improvement indeed.

We should discuss about priorities for NFO. I think command line option first, then file based on the video name, then file based on the directory name. What do you think about this?

Meanwhile you could use the fact that Prismedia will search for NFO based on the video name. Not so easy than only one file, but you could copy/paste your NFO file and named it after the video while we work on the feature ;-)

Yeah this is what I'm planning to use.

  1. Command line parameter
  2. Same name as the video
  3. Same name as the folder
  4. Same nfo.txt in the folder ? (Or any hardcoded value that you think may be a good default value... if I want to just set the category, license, privacy... that I keep from one playlist to an other)

Mmmh, for the choice 4., you mean searching for some hardnamed nfo.txt in the folder?

I guess it makes sense indeed, as NFO are pretty well used with "conventionnal" names like README.txt.

I'll add that to the todo!

Just for the sake of completeness in the issue: I proposed on mastodon to read every files from the most general to the most precise and keep the option of the most precise files.

A use case could be (adapt to your own preference):
nfo.txt (Generic infos for every videos / playlist I upload = my defaults):
mt = True category = Gaming privacy = public cca = True language = French

Same name as folder (info relatives to my playlist):
tags = [...] description = [...] [playlist = ...]

Same name as the video / cli argument (info relative to the current video only):
name = [...]
