Now I'm using it to transcode as I add media back. I don't have any issues, I have a questions and a scenario. I'm wondering how the output folder option works. Will it follow the directory structure? Like if enabled will it keep the same structure like original file is in /media/tv/show/season/show-S01E01.mkv and using the output folder option will it move it to /new-media/tv/show/season01/show-S01E01.mkv. To be automated to move files to the show name and season same with movies. What I want to do is use the cache drive to move ripped disks to the media shares and have tdarr pick them up from cache (before mover) transcode it then move it to the array. Have tdarr watch /mnt/user/media/tv then move the completed file to /mnt/user0/media/tv. I would like to have plex auto watch the /user0/ to auto add media and not have it watch the /user/. That way Plex doesn't pick up the newly added files before tdarr can work its magic and get metadata and scan for intros for the old files. Most of the time plex doesnt see the file type and size change and I get a playback error and so it doesnt redownload the art and posters and scan all over again to detect intros. <--- or maybe a future feature. for moving to another folder its eaiser to setup a new library since your rip folder is not the same as your other media folder even though the output folder is the same. its also a way to segment your data so see how your rip transcodes are doing.
