FileBot Comments

Remove junk files

about FileBot · ·

An additional feature to remove junk files e.g.
.jpg,.txt,.db,.nfo through a full tree structure would be very useful.


File join

about FileBot · ·

Would it be possible for your code to detect if there was xxx-cd1.avi and xxx-cd2.avi (which it somewhat seems to do already) and then auto merge them into a single avi file, maybe linking with a 3rd party utility like FormatFactory for this?

Nope, merging video files is completely out of the scope of this tool.

You're right in that it's beyond the scope of this application. However, you could always implement a plugin protocol for said features. That would be pretty cool. Installation would be optional and separate from the main code branch.


Failed matches

about FileBot · ·

I get many unrecognised matches when running an older movie, eg "Buck Rogers - Pilot Movie.mp4" and these very often match as "complete (2010)" whne using IMDB.
It would be easier if it just said "no match" if its not sure so there are less false positives to weed out.

I guess since it can't make sense of the filename it'll fallback to the foldername, which I assume is called 'complete'. Added that to the blacklist and should be auto-updated within a day. Please report it in the forums if the problem persists.


Feature Request

about FileBot · ·

I love the subtitle downloader feature, It would even more awesome if you could select folders or drag and drop folders so FileBot would search recursively inside them for video files and list them

You can drag-n-drop folders onto the === drop area. That'll automatically grab subtitles for all your video files. Check the video tutorial, somewhere at the end.


Time-saving application

about FileBot · ·

I'm very satisfied with this application. It does all your post-download tasks: decent file naming and subtitle search. Some features I would like to request:
- Downloading tv subtitles from . Far better source for english tv subtitles than the used ones: everything is arranged on season and episode number. Next to automatic renaming, automatic subtitle downloading and renaming would be awesome.
- A right click menu in Mac OS X Finder called "Rename with Filebot": (it could be placed underneath "Upload with CloudApp" in the screenshot). : This program automatically downloads subtitles when you give the video file as input. Maybe you can implement this in your application to further automate things

You mean like "filebot -get-subtitles path/to/movie"?

Tried 'em all, this is the best of the lot. And it's cross-platform to boot.
