the order that flags (-get-subtitles) are processed

Post by meleth »

I noticed that if you use -rename and -get-subtitles at the same time it uses the original filename to look for subtitles. Would it be possible to change the order so it will look for them using the renamed name instead?

That's a bad idea. With the original name you'll have a better chance of finding a matching subtitles. FileBot has plenty of logic built-in to find the best subtitle if no perfect match is available.

EDIT:
You're just doing filebot -rename -get-subtitles ... I guess? Just make your own script running rename and getSubtitles the other way around.

Yeah thats right, i am using my own script but i noticed that the way i call filebot it used the full path to look for the subtitles and couldn't find any so i was just being lazy :)
