Extract subtitles as srt files

Post by csatuser »

Dear all,

Is Filebot capable to extract embedded subtitles as SRT files (eg from mkv files)? Background: I have an old media player in my bedroom which doesnt support embedded subtitles.

If so could you please assist me setting that up. Currently I am using following script:

Code: Select all

 export JAVA_OPTS="-Xmx1150m"
    /var/packages/filebot/target/filebot.sh -script 'fn:amc' --action move -non-strict /volume1/downloads/jd --output /volume1/downloads/media --lang de --conflict auto --apply artwork nfo url metadata --def 'clean=y' 'skipExtract=y' 'excludeList=.excludes' 'music=n' 'subtitles=en,de'
Thank you very much!

FileBot cannot extract text streams from media files. You'll have to use tools like ffmpeg for that:

Once you have figured out how to extract subtitles, then you can move on to hooking that up with filebot:
