Movie status color codes

Postby Apocal1pse » 11 Oct 2013 15:00

As per request in this topic, I hereby post the color codes that correspond to the status of a certain movie release.

The status is essentially represented in the color of the quality tag behind a movie name, as can be seen in this picture:

Forgive the bad movie choice, this CouchPotato installation is shared with my little brother ;)

Many people apparently are looking for it and I couldn't find it as well, even though I feel like it is an essential part of what makes CouchPotato such a great program.

Well, I was looking for this as well and didn't find anything anywhere, so I investigated it myself using FireBug.
In the CSS of CouchPotato the following colors are present. Because the CSS classes have meaningful names, I'm quite sure the color codes are as follows:

available: #578BC3
snatched #A2A232
seeding: #0A6819
done #369545
failed/missing/ignored: #A43D34

I also was wondering why I was seeing the red color I hadn't seen before. After seeing the two different shades of green and their meaning I realize the red marking shows up when I manually remove a Torrent before CouchPotato thinks it is done seeding. The Torrent then goes 'missing'. CouchPotato doesn't rename and move the movie files automatically when a movie is in this state, so you'll have to manually mark the movie as 'done'.

Another thing I found in the CSS was the 'finish' class which adds the checkmark image to a quality, meaning CouchPotato will stop looking for a better quality release after it has found this quality.
This can also be found in the settings.


I hope this is helpful.
Greets!

Great info.

Just need quick clarification on the difference between 'available' and 'done' though?
Am I right in saying, 'done' means 'seeding complete' and 'available' means snatched from usenet and in correct location?

available means there are releases that are available to be snatched... an available release has not been snatched at all.

Just out of interest though, if there was an 'available' release, why would CP not have snatched it? I get these very infrequently and am not sure why so it's be good to have clarification.

If the release has a very low rank, or if you have the downloader(s) set to manual.... I'm sure there could be other reasons...

OK, that makes sense. The one I have at the moment is low ranked compared to most others.

Sorry for reviving such an old thread but, I think this is not clear enough. I have movies with the "available" color but are not being snatched. What is that makes the change from "available" to "snatched".

it changes from available to snatched when the nzb/torrent is downloaded (blackhole) or sent to your downloader.

usually, if movies are available, but not snatched, this is becuase the search was done before the expected ETA for a DVD/Blur-Ray release and therefore you are prompted (by the notifications) to verify if the releases are valid.

I am also sorry for reviving the "available" vs. "done" question.

I have a movie that has been snatched, handed off to transmission, downloaded, is now seeding, and according (to CP logs) has been moved over to plex. (seeding is via symlink). I even jumped on the command line to verify the actual file and folder are there in the plex repo.

It's marked blue for available. It's 720p which is one of my quality criteria for "done". But it's not showing up in the plex interface and CP shows it blue (available) instead of one of the greens for "done" or "seeding". Anyone have an answer for this riddle, please?

Interesting. It went green. Perhaps it just takes a bit longer than my impatient self feels like it should? user error...?

Hi guys,

On a different note as there is no real good color guide, I just cannot grasp the letters only being green.
I've been looking as a mad man on what this means... anybody?

I have the same question I think. I get the solid green / blue colors, but what does the green box with white fill / green letters mean? It happens to me a lot. Possibly because I changed the ETA to try and avoid fakes?
I thought it was because the movies weren't released to DVD yet, but If you look at the red arrow, you can see that one of them is from 2014??
I can confirm that it seems to have found some releases, but hasnt added them to utorrent. Just not sure why

Thanks!

@zeleen have you figured out what the green outline and letters mean? I am trying to figure out what specifically this color code means. If anyone has any idea I would appreciate sharing on this thread. Thanks in advance.

so it appears this has changed... now:

Green background with white text = done
Green boarder with white background and green text = available.

I don't know what snatched and seeding status looks like under this new scheme.
