Filebot support

Since version 4.8.0, Linux is an unsupported platform. You can help to get back official support to the author's Patreon page:

Notes and tips
  • To complete package generation, until better solution, after installation of jdk package as make depends you need to

    # archlinux-java set java-10-jdk
  • Anyone with time and desire to generate some "AUR apikeys"?

The new tarball package should make things a lot easier, as you won't need any build or runtime dependencies other than Java 8.

There's nothing new on 4.8.2, only tons of distro building commits. Guessing if this pkg will be more and more difficult to build.

?? How is it possible? Have you installed a JFK from a wrong architecture? Give a try with arm jdk 9.

rpi3, alarm

In fact I think setting # archlinux-java set java-10-jdk yields:

$ filebot
/usr/bin/filebot: line 21: /usr/bin/java: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error

Can I have some details about your system and your archlinux installation?

Getting this error on build:

==> Starting build()...

When running with Java 9 or 10, after doing a rename, I always get the Exception:

Exception in thread "HistorySpoolerShutdownHook" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/xml/bind/JAXBContext

This can be omitted by adding --add-modules java.xml.bind to the launch parameters.

HINT: TheTVDB and FanartTV are two different sites. The chances of randomly generating the same 64-bit key is very very small. ;)

Best to apply for your own API keys and then test them to make sure everything is working before adding them to the public repository.

Quick update, I solved my problem.

The latest Filebot package's API keys have been disabled. Which means the package will not function stock. What you need to do is register you own API keys on each website and then enter them in MAKEPKG when installing.

Is anyone having trouble with the API Key for Everytime I run a sort every file errors with:

Server returned HTTP response code: 401 for URL:

401 being "API key is invalid or disabled"

I've tried rebuilding Filebot with a personal API key as well as the default but it just seems like Fanarts whole API key system is down. So just going to have to wait it out. Would be great if someone could confirm that they are having the same issue.
