    Is there a complete list of variables for this somewhere? Under the movie section I see only "title" and "provider" as options. Under the series naming I see a few more, but no list of ALL options that I can find.

    For example if I want to add the year, can that be done currently? I tried using "%y" and "%year" but neither showed as "Year" in the template preview.

    Sorry if I missed this.

    All current available variables are listed: Download > Edit movie templates or edit TV show templates > you'll see the possibilities there. There is no %y or %year currently.

    So you answered my question with the implication that there are no other variables other than what is hardcoded into the program. Thanks.

    More variables have been requested (see status report id 79119) but year not yet. Feel free to make an official request so prospere can consider it. Without an official request I can't add it to the list.

    Year would be good to have. Netflix has correct years, though on Amazon the years are unreliable, and sometimes outright lies to trick people into thinking old movies are new movies. Even still, it would be good to have the option if possible since it's still probably relatively correct plus or minus a year or two most of the time.

    I know resolution has already been requested, so adding year would be an excellent addition. Also video codec if AnyStream is going to go back to supporting x265, and probably audio stream info as well, i.e. DD+5.1 or AAC2.0.
