Strange behaviour with metadata recognition for filenames containing apostrophe

Is this a joke?

And, for the record, this works.

So, I think it’s just the apostrophe.

That is really strange! I created a file with the same as the first one and it got no matches at all and no suggestions.

The first also has Marvel with two Ls so that may be something too. Does this file by any chance have embedded metadata? Is embedded turned off in Infuse settings?

I even looked at this descriptor and file name on TMDBs web site and could not find a reference to it.

I agree Marvel with two Ls may be the reason. I still hope that infuse would allow enough probabilistic wiggle room to handle it.

It’s using online metadata, but embedded metadata is enabled in settings. I’m assuming that means used as backup.

No other folder-based metadata external is used. I think Infuse is just using auto generated screenshots.

Honestly I don’t recall the pecking order but unless you’re specifically using embedded metadata on some files it may be worth the test to turn it off and see if the odd ball will then pull the correct suggestions when refreshed. Just curious.

In this case it looks like the misspelling (double Ls) was the reason for the weird match.

Infuse uses the results from TMDB, so if there are no relevant matches found then unfortunately we don’t really have a good option for providing wiggle room with misspelled titles.

In the future, you can enter the series name manually in the search box to find the correct match. Matching a single episode will affect all episodes in the series, so you only need to do this once.
