The recognition engine in the updater seems to have a problem with any words or lettering in the title of an anime other than the actual title unless it is in parenthesis or some other form of separator. For example when I play "The Sky Crawlers (2008) BluRay.mkv" it comes up with the "Media not found in your list" followed by the "Anime search failed" bubble. However when I remove the BluRay from the filename and play it as "The Sky Crawlers (2008).mkv, the now playing pop-up comes right up with the correct anime. This has happened on a number of animes that I have played and I am using "The Sky Crawlers as just the most recent example.

Arigatou.Yamato.Nadeshiko.Shichi.Henge.(The.Wallflower).Ep##.[x264.AAC][B2557786].mkv

## Episode number

To add a file in that pattern, I have to remove the group from the search string. But if I do so, following problem/bug happens:

The system recognizes the file if I start them directly, but I can't use the "play episode x,or "play next" button, because the system doesn't find it that way (even though it's all in the same directory). That also happens with other files, mostly if the group is not in brackets.

At rare times, the system reacts similar to unknown files. No play next feature, but somehow it recognizes the show, and sometimes even the correct episode.

Edit:

[RaX]Mezzo(DSA)_-_##_-_[x264_ogg]_[585d9971].mkv

In this case the engine got a problem with the (DSA) part. http://myanimelist.net/anime/222/Mezzo_DSA

As you can see DSA is part of the name, and the files show the same problem. While manually played, the engine recognizes the anime and correct episode, but no play next or play episode ## feature.

I did an episode scan so Malu could show which episodes I have 'In disk'. It says that I have 13 epsodes of Suzumiya Haruhi (2009), which are actually only 9 and that I also have 25 episodes of Hayate no Gotoku!!, of which I don't have any.

In both cases it fails to differentiate the second from the first seasons, which are named too similar. Can this be fixed?

It also doesn't recognize the eps of Kanazuki no Miko and Tales of Symphonia that I do have.

I second joe4evr's comment on Hayate no Gotoku!!. I guess it's pretty hard to differentiate, since the only difference in the title is an extra exclamation mark. One thing to note though, MALu detected the folders correctly. Season one folder on my drive is called "Hayate no Gotoku!" and season two is "Hayate no Gotoku!!", and the File/Folder Tools detected the correct folder/anime assignment, it's just the individual episode detection.

File name for season one is:
[SS-Eclipse] Hayate no Gotoku! - 09 (1280x720 h264) [0650EB95].mkv

File name for season two is:
[SS-Eclipse] Hayate no Gotoku - 2nd Season - 10 (1280x720 h264) [C375749E]

It doesn't seem to recongnize any RMVB container files, is it possible to make it recongnize them? Since most Chinese subs use RMVB container. Their naming scheme is super similar to English so there's not a lot of problems there.


rmvb is supported. post the filenames that fail.


I posted it earlier too but then I looked back at the thread.

Basically, this is the deal.

The Chinese uses [NAME][Ep#] in their releases. MALu treats it as a single name and therefore cannot recognise.

For example:
[DMHY][Zan_Sayonara_Zetsubou_Sensei][07][GB][RV10][848x480] - cannot recognise.
However, if I rename to
[DMHY]_Zan_Sayonara_Zetsubou_Sensei_07_[GB][RV10][848x480] - then everything is fine.

It's not a big deal, but it's annoying that I have to rename everytime I want to watch an ep. Lol. Also took me like 2 months to realise it. D:

Ok, this is pretty weird.
Finally decided to clean my old HDD from some not that very original anime by using malu to recognize them and play episode 1 to figure out what can be safely deleted. But then, the following recog problem happened:

Girls Bravo second season episode 1-13 is recognized, but if I hit the play, or play next button, I will get a random series to play, for example kino's adventure same episode, or Yamamoto Nadeshiko (the wallflower), same episode. Both are not anywhere near that anime, in terms of list position, naming or genre.

Files in Detail:
[Exiled-Destiny]_Girls_Bravo_Ep01v3_[R2_Video]_(94D81F22).mkv
...
[Exiled-Destiny]_Girls_Bravo_Ep11v3_[R2_Video]_(2CE4B6A9).mkv // last of season 1
[Exiled-Destiny]_Girls_Bravo_Ep12v2_(6F25CE7D).mkv // first of season 2
...
[Exiled-Destiny]_Girls_Bravo_Ep24_(34AD3D38).mkv // last of season 2

and instead of the episode from season 2 of girls bravo it was played:
Arigatou.Yamato.Nadeshiko.Shichi.Henge.(The.Wallflower).Ep01.[x264.AAC][555AB183].mkv
or
Arigatou.Kino.no.Tabi.Ep01.[x264.AAC][555ED303].mkv

Only happens with files which got identical episode number to the girls bravo season 2 episode number, and by overservation only the groupname.animename (every word seperated by dots) files are used instead of the season 2 files.

In the logic of continueing, starting with the next episode number for a new season makes as much sense as "resetting" the episode counter to 1 but adding "season 2" to the naming.

I thought malu would either be clever enough to make both options valid or complain about it, because episodes are "out of range". But random playing, that sounds more like a stack overflow. I know my explanation sucks big time, sorry for the mess, but I couldn't think of a better one.

girls bravo / kino no tabi: are you using the latest malu? I fixed that bug with playnext a few versions ago.

2nd season as the next episode: malu has no data about sequels, mal doesn't provide it in the anime list.

I'm using V2.55, should be the latest.

Playnext usually works better then before (this is the first time after some updates that I actually got a problem with the recon/play combo).

I know it's a rather rare case, hopefully someone can reproduce the problem. For example, now it plays Kurau phantom memory ep4 from arigatou instead of girls bravo season 2 ep 4. It's rather confusing, there is even a tooltip that the episode is higher then the previous one (whis is correct on the Kurau part, not the girls bravo S2 part - at least for the moment).

edit:
Even more weird. I already have posted it in this thread, but all mentioned (naming style arigatou) animes are only recognized by file number, I can't actually play any of the episoded with the play or play next button, unless I try to play girls bravo s2 ep x, then it more or less randomly picks 1 show per episode from the pool of the stack of not fully recognized anime shows.

...
By second observation it tries to play an episode from a directory which doesn't have a single girls bravo episode stored in it. (Not even the same HDD). Even after specify the exact directory (usually I only setup my root dirs) on the playnext setup window (see below), it still continues to play the same files instead of the girls bravo s2 files.

All results are made after the newest patch. If I open the settings and look for the anme folder settings, girls bravo is still pointed to my recent anime folder, not my backup/archive folder and not to my old HDD even though I have tripple checked that that root dir and the exact bravo dir is in the settings. Under Settings->PlayNext->"Anime->Folder Settings" it always shows the wrong directory, and neither updates by strict or full scan is going to change that.

Now I retried, by deleting GB S2 entry via malu, readd it with malu. No new episodes showing (strict scan), but it STILL plays the other animes like before - even without showing up entries???. After a full scan it finds 13 episodes, but still plays the ones above.

Finally I manually setup the directory with rightclick on the entry, and it plays girls bravo, but the first season. LOL.

So one step forward, one to go:
#1 result [Exiled-Destiny]_Girls_Bravo_Ep01v3_[R2_Video]_(94D81F22).mkv instead of [Exiled-Destiny]_Girls_Bravo_Ep12v2_(6F25CE7D).mkv.

As you can see, the problem now lies on the naming system. Since there is no "season 2 or 2" in the filename, it chooses the first ep instead of the first ep (that would be ep 12v2) of the second season. As long as a renaming or putting them in different dir's fix the problem, I can deal with it. What I don't get is why my malu fails to setup the right directory automatically in the first place.

Still it would be neat to have malu identify a second season if the total number of episodes equals the total sum of the 2 seasons. Some animes have long names and usually have a different title instead of season x in their name, so it can be confusing by people who don't know which title/season comes first.

That was a bumpy ride...
.. and finally I can delete some anime xD

Thanks for your patience in that case, hope you can improve the recognize engine by killing that weird bug.

Another thought about the not playable group.filename recog problem:

I asume that your code checks 2 options:
[GS] = [Group of seperators]
[a-0] =[String of chars form the table a-z; A-Z; 0-9]

1st.: [GS][a-0]=groupname[GS][a-0 (#1)][GS][a-0 (#2)[GS]...
The code will ignore the first string of [a-0] and then try to match the following strings with the ones in the database.
2nd.: [GS][a-0 (#1)][GS][a-0 (#2)[GS]...
The code will not ignore the first string, since it might be not a groupname

If you include the 3rd option:
3rd.: [a-0 =groupname][GS][a-0 (#1)][GS][a-0 (#2)[GS]...
you can cover up all that files, which are failing to be fully recognized because the line doesn't begin with a group of seperators doesn't actually mean that the first string is not a groupname which would need to be ignored. Especially if the groupname might actually be part of another animen name in the database...

For example:
Arigatou.Kurau.Phantom.Memory.Ep01.[x264.AAC][9C646540].mkv
Arigatou.Kino.no.Tabi.Ep02.[x264.AAC][555ED303].mkv
Arigatou.Kurau.Phantom.Memory.Ep03.[x264.AAC][54E6EA74].mkv
...

edit:
It's not that hard to rename that files, but it would improve the recognize abilities if there is a 3rd option concidered if the scan doesn't come up with a single result. At least on my end playnext works 100% on all files recognized by strict scan method, but it apears to not work at all for files only be recognized by full scan method.

Another thought about the not playable group.filename recog problem:

I asume that your code checks 2 options:
[GS] = [Group of seperators]
[a-0] =[String of chars form the table a-z; A-Z; 0-9]

1st.: [GS][a-0]=groupname[GS][a-0 (#1)][GS][a-0 (#2)[GS]...
The code will ignore the first string of [a-0] and then try to match the following strings with the ones in the database.
2nd.: [GS][a-0 (#1)][GS][a-0 (#2)[GS]...
The code will not ignore the first string, since it might be not a groupname

If you include the 3rd option:
3rd.: [a-0 =groupname][GS][a-0 (#1)][GS][a-0 (#2)[GS]...
you can cover up all that files, which are failing to be fully recognized because the line doesn't begin with a group of seperators doesn't actually mean that the first string is not a groupname which would need to be ignored.

I think all these issues are fixed now with 25010. Can you check and confirm?

When I click Play next on Vandread Second Stage, it instead loads the next episode to watch of the First Stage. In other words, "Vandread First Stage Episode 03 - This Is The Path I Choose To Live.mkv" is recognized for Vandread Second Stage Episode 3. I have Episode 3 of the second stage named "Vandread Second Stage Episode 03 - Blossoming Path.mkv", but it plays that episode of the first stage instead.

I didn't realize there was a topic specifically for recognition problems, so I posted it in the Bug reports first..

Here is the quote from my post ^^
Marco-Kun said:
I just started watching Pokémon again but it seems MALupdater doesn't recognize the titles. My episodes are all titles like this: Pokémon SE1 EP001, Pokémon SE1 EP002.

When I play an episode the "Add Anime and Manga to your list" screen pops up with the suggestion;
Pok mon SE1. So MALupdater doesn't recognize the "é" in Pokémon.

Can that be fixed? ^^

Thank you!

As far as I can tell all groupname.animename without a seperator at the beginning are now recognized.
All mentioned anime in my previous posts are recognized and are playable via playnext or play episode # xx. Thank you very much for fixing it. :)

Now I need to find an anime only recognized via full scan to verify the last bit, but my guess is, that it should work as well with the playnext or play episode xx feature.

I may have mentioned this one before but just in case I haven't. When I play Kara no Kyoukai 2: Satsujin Kousatsu (Part 1) with it renamed as Gekijouban Kara no Kyoukai The Garden of Sinners - 2v2[2007-2009][gg-TakaJun][665EB12C][AniDB].mkv the MAL updater refuses to recognize it. Even when I lead it by the nose to the anime, it keeps coming back "Media not on the list", "Anime not recognized". Which wouldn't be so bad except it keeps popping up with those messages throughout the playback.

A new recog problem I can sense:
[ACX]Madlax_-_24_-_Devoting_Heart_[[Saiyan]BrollY]_[40573CA9].mkv is not recognized, if I use the rename tool, it tries to recognize it as episode 9 or can't even recognize it at all. One episode had even s 4 digit episode number, since the last 4 digits of the CRC where numbers.

If I change the name to [ACX]Madlax_-_24_-_Devoting_Heart.mkv it is fully recognized.

It seems like the engine is trying to pinpoint the episode number from the last number in the filename and is confused by the unexpected strings in between the episode name and the CRC.

This is odd. I've never had Malu recognize the CRC as ep. number by mistake
