Subtitles for multiple folders

Post by BattZ »

I just found this and it is quite amazing. Saved me a ton of time so far just using the subtitle downloader alone. But I think it would be nice to be able to get subtitles for all my movies and TV shows. The problem is my movies are each in their own specific movie folder within a main movie folder, as well as seasons within series in my TV show folder. I don't mind doing the TV shows season by season, but I have over 500 movies and doing them one by one would take days. Is there any way to add a folders/files option to subtitles, but only check the media in those folder, so not to get .sfv or .nfo or other such files? If you do that it might be nice to pop up a warning if it detects .srt files within the folders.

Thanks for this and nice work.

GUI:
1. Go to your movies folder and search *.* (i.e. list all files from all folders)
2. Drag and drop everything onto the subtitle drop target
(FileBot 2.3 will automatically recursively lookup video files)

Cmdline:
filebot -script "http://filebot.sourceforge.net/data/shell/suball.groovy" <root>

Oh, that's clever. I didn't realize I could drag and drop onto the blue subtitle button.

Thanks!
