A suggestion to add a media masking/anonymization option in MP2 for all the logs.
So that the logs do not show the actual media folders and names of the files but rather write masked/anonymous lines in the log files

e.g. write
[DEBUG] - MediaAccessor: Importing file 'A***************************************.srt'
instead of the actual file names

    This is something that we need to refuse. Many importer problems were traced back to media files not following the predefined MP2 requirements. Without such info it is not possible to analyze issues.

    I can understand that people may be concerned about their privacy. However, anybody curious would need to really dig very deeply into logs and then establish connections to a particular user (who normally is completely anonmyous).

    I mean who is "Terra", what can I learn about him/her and what do I do with that information. Nothing we are interested in. In the end it is everybody's personal choice to what extent he/she is willing to disclose information. However, please be aware that error analysis relies on as much information as possible. From a support perspective I simply don't want to 'negotiate' additional information every time it would be required to better understand the problem.

    I understand that debugging is easier with clear logs and I am not worried about the MP2 staff, however in the end this is a public forum and everybody can download the logs that are attached to posts so this should be kept in mind. Maybe a place to share logs with only the dev's would be also feasible?

    It is the main concept of a public forum that everybody helps everybody. Eliminating the attachments for the general public is not a good idea.

    @Lehmden It is about five years too late at this point for creating NFO's from the MovingPictures database. I am not seeing any issues with MP2 on imports from the NFO files, MP2 is getting data off of what is in the NFO. The issue comes down to a combination of bad NFO's ie. I, Frankenstein 2014 having an NFO for Frankenstein 2015...

    Ok I could solve my problem by myself. The logs said that the delimiter of that song is not in text form. Although it was already in text form and I deleted the music database, the title information was still not available. I ripped the song again and now it works. I think that something went wrong the first time.
