Little too quick on the close button there.


Doctor Who S3E00 The Runaway Bride.mpeg

matches regex number one.

[\. -]?S[0-9]+E[S0-9]+

But, as originally reported, no meta-data is fetched.

Guess I wasn't clear; what you wanted to read was in the comments. Specifically:
Runaway bride really belongs to season 2, so it should be named
Doctor Who S2ES1 The Runaway Bride.mpeg (the 1 can be any number)

The very first Children in Need special is listed on TV Rage with the title "Doctor Who: Children in Need", and I think the colon is preventing Sapphire from being able to match it up. You can't have a colon in a file name, and having the file be "Doctor Who S01ES1 Doctor Who Children in Need" isn't working. I have no problems with any of the other specials. Any ideas how I can name the file to get it to work, or is this something that needs addressing in Sapphire?

Replying to

You can't have a colon in a file name

Cry to Apple "FTFF" (Fix the * Finder). This is a finder limitation only. Change the filename in terminal, and it will be happy to let you have a colon. Alternatively, use a / in place of the colon within Finder.

Ah, the / does the trick. Thanks! Perhaps that's worth adding to the FAQ entry.
