Great app! - one missing feature for me is ability to download URL's with link to movie page on IMDB etc - it would be great if this feature could be added

You can generate .nfo files and FileBot will already include the IMDb/TMDb links in there. Just grabbing that info and writing it into another file is easy from there.


Mass download subtitles

I have a folder with 600 movies and i am looking for a way to download subtitles in Greek for all the movies , You software need to add movies one by one its not supporting adding the parent folder and look into movies and download like subdownloader ( that's not free for windows)

That's what it says on the main page, that's how it works:

  1. Drag your movie or episode files onto the top-right drop area
  2. Hit "Download"!

Or cmdline if you prefer that:


Is it possible to autorename downloaded subtitles to same name as video file

Comment by Polttis

That would be awesome.

Also for directory and all subdirs -> fetch subtitle if one doesn't exist already in the same folder.

All supported. You can fetch missing for one folder or use a script to handle the whole tree. It's all on our homepage/forums.

You can also use the video files as template for renaming the subtitle files. It's all in the video tutorial.

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