Open subtitles config file.

Post by Flippy » 12 Jul 2017, 22:36

Hello,

I have looked but didn't find the answer.

On OSX where should the config file be placed?

Is the config file just a .txt file?

Should the opensubtitles account info be something like

username
password

Any help is appreciated.

There is no config file. You need to call filebot -script fn:configure to enter your login details, and then FileBot will remember that internally somehow.

@see viewtopic.php?f=3&t=228
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.

The implementation details of how and where these pieces of information are stored are different for each platform. On Mac, the data is stored in a platform-specific way that is difficult to edit manually.

@see https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/a ... ences.html

Thanks for the responses. Just a quick post to help someone with a similar question.

Copy & Paste the following into the command line.

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:configure
You will be prompted for username and then password. As Kim pointed out, these are stored locally.

You will then be able to use filebot to get the subtitles from the command line, hazel etc.

Thanks.
