FileBot Comments

Remove junk files

Positive Comment by samkelly
about FileBot Oct 2012

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


File join

Positive Comment by samkelly
about FileBot Oct 2012

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?


Failed matches

Positive Comment by samkelly
about FileBot Oct 2012

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.


Feature Request

Positive Comment by jamartinezc
about FileBot Sep 2012

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


Time-saving application

Positive Comment by kaspermalfroid1
about FileBot Jan 2012

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).


The Subtitles Finder

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