%ifmovie%

For renaming files, the documentation refers to an %ismovie% command. %ismovie% does not seem to work, but %ifmovie% seems to be accepted. However, the argument to be used when %ifmovie% is false seems to get concatenated onto the argument to be used when true, including the comma between arguments, creating a strange folder with a comma in the middle of its name located in the movies folder rather than where non-movies are to be saved:

E.g.: Recording\%ifmovie%<Movies\%showname%,TVShows\%showname%\Season %season%\%showname% - S%season%##E%episode%##>-Converted

produces for nonmovies:

Recording\Movies\CSI,TVShows\CSI\Season 1\CSI - S01E02-Converted.<ext>

What version of MCEBuddy are you using? There is no such thing as %ifmovie% that's why it is getting concatenated (it not a valid command so it takes it as is)

The correct syntax is %ismovie%.

If %ismovie% isn't working, check your conversion log, it show metadata telling MCEbuddy that it's a movie. It it isn't then the issue lies with the metadata. Either it should be corrected at the source and if that can't be done, then you can force the conversion task to mark it as a movie in the Metadata correction options in expert settings.
