Possible to change the default quality of imported files?


#1

Sonarr version (exact version): 2.0.0.5163
Mono version (if Sonarr is not running on Windows): 5.12.0.226
OS: Docker Image linuxserver/sonarr
Description of issue:

If Sonarr imports a file that was downloaded externally it tries to find the quality based on the file name. But if the file name doesn’t contain a quality it seems like it assumes HDTV. Is it possible to change that to default to WEB-DL?


#2

If unknown Soanrr falls back to the file extension where there are some defaults, in the next release Sonarr will also check the resolution to see if it can find a better match, but the lowest source will always be used (SDTV/HDTV). There isn’t an option to assume a different source and there are no plans to add one.

Is it possible to change the quality of an file via the API?


#4

Anything done in the UI can can done via the API.

You cna see how the UI is doing it with dev tools,though I updated the WIKI page below with a PUT example.
