Installing FileBot on Synology NAS

Post by rednoah » 10 Jul 2014, 06:56

FileBot now has it's own Package Source so you can download and install FileBot conveniently from the Package Center like any other Synology package. ;)


Add Package Source:
Package Center ► Settings ► Package Sources ► Add ► Name: FileBot and Location: https://get.filebot.net/syno/ ► OK

Code: Select all

https://get.filebot.net/syno/

FileBot
This package will install the filebot command-line tools. You will be able to run filebot commands from the shell via SSH.

FileBot Node
This package will install and run the FileBot Node web application. You will be able to execute, schedule and monitor filebot commands with a simple Synology DSM UI.

Notes:
  • FileBot requires java. You will need to install the latest Java (Oracle Java recommended) package.
  • FileBot Node requires node. You will need to install the latest Node.js (Node.js v4 recommended) package.
  • Please read How to use FileBot Node to learn how FileBot Node and the filebot command-line tools are meant to be used.
  • If you process music, you need to install MediaInfo and Chromaprint.
  • If you use mediainfo bindings in your format, you need to install MediaInfo.
  • Java 8 is required. My Unofficial Java Installer package will help you install the latest Oracle JDK.
  • Running commands from the login shell is not the same as using Synology DSM Task Scheduler or cron because they'll not initialise with ~/.profile so keep in mind that $PATH will be different.
  • filebot must not be run as root and it is recommended that you always run filebot as admin

Optional Features
If you want support for MediaInfo and AcoustID you will need to install the MediaInfo and Chromaprint packages from SynoCommunity.


MediaInfo: libmediainfo.so is required for reading video/audio information from media files
Image


Chromaprint: fpcalc is required for computing acoustic fingerprints and matching music files with metadata

Built with ant-spk
My (very excellent) support depends on Windows Store and Mac App Store sales and PayPal donations. Paying users, donors and everyone who contributes to FileBot in one way or another will get the very best support.

Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help. Donate if you'd like some extra developer love. :ugeek:
