find subtitles using filebot Node

Post by spikemixture » 16 Mar 2019, 12:39

I have used the desktop version for many years and have bought both that and the node version I am using on my qnap NAS.

It works well for me but I would like 2 things (or point me to where they are):

An option to check the 'completed" (I call mine finished) maybe 3 times a day not just at 4am.

And

Run Find subtitles manually or on a schedule!
The desktop version I drag mp4 files that don't have subtitles on to the blue triangle and it does it's thing.

I would like to point filebot node to my tv folder and it checks if any subtitles are available or missing.


Thanks

FileBot Node only supports amc script calls. You'll have to login via SSH and fetch subtitles via the filebot command line tools.

Thanks Rednoah,

I am not script literate so "amc script only" means nothing to me.
I know how to logon via SSH but have no idea what command line tool is required.

Please point me to "filebot node for dummies" .. 8-)

Sorry, FileBot Node is a front-end for the amc script. FileBot Node does not support the subtitles script, and so you won't be able to find subtitles using FileBot Node.

Using the CLI via SSH is just better suited for the task at hand:
