Collection of Custom Formats

Here I will try to collect a collection of the most needed and commonly used Custom Formats. These have been collected from either discussions on discord or that I created with help from others. Special thanks to rg9400, bakerboy448 and Team Radarr.

With Radarr V3, Custom Formats are much more advanced/powerful than with v0.2, although this also means a Custom Format is much more complicated to setup.

After requesting at Team Radarr we now have the options to import/export the Custom Formats in a JSON format that we can use here what makes it easier to share the different kind of Custom Formats.

I also made 2 guides related to this one.

  • How to import Custom Formats. Where I will try to explain how to import the Custom Formats.
  • How to setup Custom Formats Where I will try to explain how to make the most use of Custom Formats and show some personal examples that I'm using. That you can use to get a idea how to setup yours.

Tip

I also suggest to change the Propers and Repacks settings in Radarr

Media Management => File Management to Do Not Prefer and use the Repack/Proper Custom Format.

cf-mm-propers-repacks-disable

This way you make sure the Custom Formats preferences will be used and not ignored.

TrueHD ATMOS

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dolby Atmos is a surround sound technology developed by Dolby Laboratories. It expands on existing surround sound systems by adding height channels, allowing sounds to be interpreted as three-dimensional objects.

ATMOS (undefined)

Handles cases where only Atmos is specified in title but not DD+ or TrueHD (Where it is not specified if it is Lossy or Lossless)

Note

Give this the same score as Lossy Atmos, and then on import, it will get changed to either lossy or lossless based on mediainfo.

DTS-HD MA

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

DTS-HD Master Audio is a multi-channel, lossless audio codec developed by DTS as an extension of the lossy DTS Coherent Acoustics codec (DTS CA; usually itself referred to as just DTS). Rather than being an entirely new coding mechanism, DTS-HD MA encodes an audio master in lossy DTS first, then stores a concurrent stream of supplementary data representing whatever the DTS encoder discarded. This gives DTS-HD MA a lossy "core" able to be played back by devices that cannot decode the more complex lossless audio. DTS-HD MA's primary application is audio storage and playback for Blu-ray Disc media.

FLAC

FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an audio format similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality. This is similar to how Zip works, except with FLAC you will get much better compression because it is designed specifically for audio

Opus

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Opus is a lossy audio coding format developed by the Xiph.Org Foundation and standardized by the Internet Engineering Task Force, designed to efficiently code speech and general audio in a single format, while remaining low-latency enough for real-time interactive communication and low-complexity enough for low-end embedded processors.Opus replaces both Vorbis and Speex for new applications, and several blind listening tests have ranked it higher-quality than any other standard audio format at any given bitrate until transparency is reached, including MP3, AAC, and HE-AAC

DoVi

Dolby Vision = DoVi

Dolby Vision is a content mastering and delivery format similar to the HDR10 media profile.

Dolby Vision is a proprietary, dynamic HDR format developed by Dolby Labs. By adjusting the picture on a scene-by-scene (and even frame-by-frame) basis, it lets you see more detail with better color accuracy. It is constantly making adjustments so that each image on the screen is optimized.

DoVi (SL)

Score [295]

Dolby Vision (Single Layer) = DoVi (SL)

Custom Format for Single Layer Dolby Vision releases.

Note

This used to be the the preferred option for PLeX with a Shield 2019 model that supports DV.

But now DV is part of the MKV spec and ExoPlayer added native support.

HDR

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

High-dynamic-range video (HDR video) is video having a dynamic range greater than that of standard-dynamic-range video (SDR video).HDR video involves capture, production, content/encoding, and display. HDR capture and displays are capable of brighter whites and deeper blacks. To accommodate this, HDR encoding standards allow for a higher maximum luminance and use at least a 10-bit dynamic range (color depth, compared to 8-bit for non-professional and 10-bit for professional SDR video) in order to maintain precision across this extended range.

HDR (undefined)

Some groups don't add HDR to their 4K release name so I suggest to add this Custom Format at the same score as you add one of your HDR Custom Formats.

For now it's only FraMeSToR that doesn't add HDR to their release name but in the feature we can add more to it if needed.

4K Remaster

A remastered or mastered in 4K should give you usually the best picture and audio currently for the movie. Both are just names to describe the best possible currently for the movie.

To be clear, the final digital films on the Mastered in 4K Blu-rays still only have the same 1920 x 1080 pixels of actual resolution as normal Blu-rays. But the argument goes that because these full HD files were derived from higher-resolution masters, their images will be more precise, with better colours, less noise, and enhanced sharpness and detail. Not least because the higher-resolution mastering process will provide more detail from the original print for the Blu-ray masters to draw on when going through their (hopefully…) frame-by-frame compression process.

Another important element of the Mastered in 4K discs is that they’re all mastered with ‘x.v.YCC’ colour specification. This delivers an expanded colour range closer to that contained in original source material.

BR-DISK

This is a custom format to help Radarr recognize & ignore BR-DISK (ISO's and Blu-ray folder structure) in addition to the standard BR-DISK quality.

You will need to add the following to your new Custom Format when created in your Quality Profile (Setting => Profiles) and then set the score to -1000 or even -10000

Note

Depending on your renaming scheme it could happen that Radarr will match renamed files after they are downloaded and imported as BR-DISK, This is a cosmetic annoyance till I come up for another way to solve this, being that this Custom Format is used to not download BR-DISK it does its purpose as intended. Several reasons why this is happening:

  • Blame the often wrongly used naming of x265 encodes.
  • Radarr v3 uses dynamic custom formats.

720/1080p no x265 = x265 (720/1080p)

This blocks/ignores 720/1080p releases that are encoded in x265

You will need to add the following to your new Custom Format when created in your Quality Profile (Setting => Profiles) and then set the score to -1000 or even -10000

Quote

x265 is good for for 4k stuff or 1080p if they used the the remuxes as source. If the media isn't source quality/remux, then there will be a loss of quality every time. Also, once you go x265, typically that file is done. It can't be changed to something else without a huge loss of quality.

Something like 95% of video files are x264 and have much better direct play support. If you have more than a couple users, you will notice much more transcoding. Just depends on your priorities.

So basically if you are storage poor and just need to save space, use x265. The catch is if you want best quality x265, you need source quality files, so you still have huge file sizes. If you want maximum compatibility and the option to change your files to something else later, then x264. It's all really dependent on specific situations for different people

Microsized & Wrong Source

It's a shame that most x265 groups microsize the releases or use the x264 as source what results in low quality releases. And the few groups that do use the correct source suffer from it.

Golden Rule

That's why I created my own golden rule.

No-RlsGroup

Some indexers strip out the release group what could result in LQ groups getting a higher score. For example a lot of EVO releases end up stripping the group name, so they appear as "upgrades", and they end up getting a decent score if other things match

Warning

If you don't use a decent filenames like not adding release groups don't add this Custom Format, except if you want to upgrade them.

DoVi (WEBDL)

Dolby Vision = DoVi

This is a special Custom Format that ignores DV for WEB-DL but together with the normal DoVi allows for other sources.

WEB-DL from Streaming Services don't have the fallback to HDR(10), What can results in weird playback issues like weird colors if you want to play it on a not DoVi compatible setup. Remuxes and Bluray have a fallback to HDR(10).
