A proper name should still be considered.
Jellyfin resolvers provide the functionality that assigns proper types like "season" or "episode" to files and folders. This plugin adds a new resolver to Jellyfin that uses Anitomy to parse files. Additionally the way the folder structure is defined is changed to better suit anime watchers.
The plugin is usable to a certain degree. Unfortunately the Jellyfin server doesn't support alternative resolvers properly so this plugin needs to do some hacks to get it working:
- It defines a high priority so it will run before most of the other build-in resolvers
- It check if the library it is resolving contains "anime" in the name because there is no way to assign it to certain libraries only (yet)
- It always returns something so other resolvers won't provide false information
- Only works for mp4 and mkv files at this moment
A issue for custom resolvers exists in the Jellyfin issue tracker: jellyfin/#2187
Folders can be nested as much as you want, whenever a folder starts with a digit it is considered a "show". The digit will be stripped. Season support is currently not supported. All shows will get a "Season 1" season with their respective content. Folders called "extra" inside a show will be added as a separate season.
