Here I will try to explain how you can manually import Custom Formats for Sonarr v4+.
Keep in mind Custom Formats are made to fine tune your Quality Profile.
Generally, quality trumps all
In this example I will use the BR-DISK Custom Format, the one most people don't want to download anyway. And if you do, then you probably don't use any of the Starr apps or Plex, being both don't support it.
Then click the copy icon in the top right corner
Followed by the
Import in the lower left.
JSON in the empty
Custom Format JSON box (1) that you got from the Custom Format Collection followed by the
Import button (2).
After selecting the
Import button you will get a screen that has all the Custom Formats variables filled in correctly,
all you need to do now is click on the
Save button and you're done.
After you've added the Custom Formats, You will need to set it up in the Quality Profile you want to use/prefer to make use of the Custom Formats. How this is done is explained HERE
Start adding more Custom Formats wisely, Don't add all the available Custom Formats!!!
Check out the How to setup Custom Formats where I will explain how to make the most use of custom formats and show some personal examples that I'm using. You can use these examples to get an idea on how to setup yours.
This can be done also automatically with one of the TRaSH Sync Applications,
