[request] filebot node and subtitle search

Post by Tdoc » 18 Aug 2019, 11:43

Hello Rednoah

I have a request for subtitle auto download and filebot nod on synology

I can see that the search for subtitle is BEFORE the file renaming. it very often fail to find the file as of course the file name is not yet "proper"
It would be much more efficiente to seek the subtitle AFTER the file is renamed ? or I am missing someting ?

Search for subtitles before allows FileBot to find exactly matching subtitles, and allows you to customize subtitle naming via the rename format.

:?: Can you give a specific example where the original file name doesn't work, yet somehow does work after renaming?

:idea: If you are keen on downloading subtitles after renaming, then you could use the --def exec option and use it to do additional filebot -get-subtitles calls on newly processed files.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
