Any ideas why?

This thread is outdated. The links above have not existed for a long time, so you have probably downloaded an HTML error page. You can use cat *.deb to check.

You can download the most recent deb package from the SF.net download section.

I installed from the Apple App Store and the GUI works fine.

I'm trying to get the cli working, but am having trouble getting it registered. I run

Code: Select all

filebot --license *.psm
and what appears to be the same GUI interface pops up and proclaims, as does the command line,

Code: Select all

License Error: UNREGISTERED
I've searched for this `psm` file, but haven't located it. Please help!

TL;DR If you want to use the CLI, then you will need to ask Apple to refund your purchase ASAP, and purchase an FileBot cross-platform license instead.


1.
The Mac App Store does not support / allow command-line tools:
viewtopic.php?f=12&t=5983

:!: The MAS version does not have a CLI.


2.
You seem to have installed [BETA] FileBot 4.8.2 (with support for all platforms with cross-platform license system) which is completely different and licensed separately from the Mac App Store version.

:!: This version requires a license file and is completely separate from the Mac App Store. You will not be able to use your MAS purchase to unlock the non-MAS version of FileBot.

Thank you for your response. I'll do as you suggest.

The return went fine, but how do I purchase the CLI/cross-platform license? I installed it via homebrew per this thread.

It works, now!

Hi,
I installed Filebot but it doesn't open. What needs to be done ?

:?: What do you expect to happen when you click Open?

:idea: The FileBot package will install the filebot command-line tool. You have to login via SSH to run commands.

I bought filebot on mac appstore, 29EUR.... to discover now that some features are missing like subtitle management, and that I need to buy new licence ; I just try to find on your download page another way to donwload app except Mac or Windows store ; sounds impossible or at least non obvious
I feel...defrauded clearly

will for sure inform others on both stores

1.
You can ask Apple / Microsoft for a refund if you're not happy with the product. Not much I can do if Apple decided not not allow subtitle tools some 2 years ago. The Windows Store version is fully featured.

2.
FileBot 4.8.2 (early access, in beta, not officially released yet) requires a license for the rename feature only. If you use it just for OpenSubtitles, then that'll work even without purchasing a license. The FileBot Subtitles for Mac is still available, but deprecated.

Hi, thanks for the answer - product is ok anyway ; regarding subtitles I found FlixTools... magic

For subtitles, I do recommend purchasing FlixTools, as it's made by the creators of OpenSubtitles, and thus supports the site as well as the app.

I'm getting the following when updating my sources on Ubuntu 18.04. Anyone else? Is there something I need to do to fix it?

Code: Select all

W: Skipping acquire of configured file 'main/binary-i386/Packages' as repository 'https://get.filebot.net/deb stable InRelease' does not seem to provide it (sources.list entry misspelt?)

Sorry, 32-bit Linux (i386) is not supported. You'll need to install 64-bit Linux (amd64 / x86_64) since the Debian package is only available for this architecture. Why are you still using 32-bit Linux? Is there any particular reason?

:idea: The Portable TAR package can work on armv7l / aarch64 / i386 / amd64 so you might want to consider that if you're stuck on 32-bit Linux for some reason.

I purchased the regular mac app, not through store. I have tried double clicking, opening with app, even uninstalling and reinstalling the app but the app will not register. I am guess thats why its not recognizing recent popular movies that just need to be cleaned up a little bit...because the old version I used to use handled the simple plex scheme fine.

What does "not register" mean? FileBot is crashing on startup? License activation not working? Some other error when you try to process files?

Please share screenshots so I can see what you see:

Strange. I guess you can ignore the i386 packages warning then as it's not particularly relevant to your amd64 machine.

Maybe setting arch=amd64 will make the warning go away:

Code: Select all

deb [arch=amd64] https://get.filebot.net/deb/ stable main

Strange. Could have been temporary server-side issues, though I don't see anything odd in the logs. If something doesn't work in the future, and there's an error, message, just make a quick screenshot so we see what's going on and troubleshoot.

I am wondering how to add a leading 0 to the season using 1x01 naming format to come out as 01x01? Simply adding a 0 in front of the expression will not work as season 10 would show as season 010.

I found it on my own :? :
