Re: [Mac] brew cask install filebot

:idea: Since Apple does not allow command-line tools in the Mac App Store you will need to install the filebot console tools via brew even if you have already bought FileBot from the App Store.
Does installing the FileBot package using brew write over the AppStore Version? I notice it's installing into the Applications folder.

No. Not if you follow the instructions above:

Code: Select all

brew cask install filebot --force --appdir=~/Applications

Hi, I have the Mac App Store Filebot and would like to install the command line tool, but I don't really want to install brew (I already have MacPorts). Is there any alternative? Is it possible to download the standalone filebot.jar file to run command line applications? Thanks.

You can make it work manually by reading and understanding the brew cask formula, and then just download / extract / symlink things yourself as necessary:

There is indeed no update for the CLI, but unfortunately the update notification code doesn't have support for different platforms having different latest revisions.

Is the Discord channel more active than the forums at this point? I don't have it yet, but I'll install it if the community has moved there.

The forums are the best way to ask for help. Also, because Google will be able to find results from the forums. Discord is just for fun if you want to talk to someone in real time.

Post by rednoah »

This thread is outdated.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.

macOS cli license

Post by rico »

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!

Re: [Mac] brew cask install filebot

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.

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!

:?: 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.

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.

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.

Re: [JDownloader] Setup for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X

Post by otr »

I would like to ask for help with this. I'll put this in a way so that it may help others in the future as well.
My setup: DS218play, jDownloader headless + my.jdownloaderorg as GUI + filebot.

This is a screen capture of the GUI that I have. I fail to enter the scripts (e.g. https://github.com/filebot/plugins/blob ... inished.js) via c&p (plus modifying path) into that window. I get an error (failed to set new value).

Image

My question: Is that even the right way? Or do I need to follow the headless path that you describe above?
In that case,
- where do I put that script?
- can you provide the second script as JSON as well please? The provided one only works for "ON_PACKAGE_FINISHED", but not for ArchiveExtracted.

Thanks!

Re: [JDownloader] Setup for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X

Post by rednoah »

I've never used the JD WebUI. It looks very basic. I guess it's just a simple interface so you can write the org.jdownloader.extensions.eventscripter.EventScripterExtension.scripts.json configuration file.

You can try to just copy the raw JSON:
https://github.com/filebot/plugins/blob ... ripts.json

The easiest way is probably to log in via SSH, find the configuration files, and then write them directly, and restart JD:

Code: Select all

find /volume1 -iname '*EventScripterExtension*'
:idea: You can use the JD desktop app and setup Event Scripter that way, and the just copy the configuration file.

Take a look at this shell script I created for my setup where I was running into the exact same issue: https://gist.github.com/HanSooloo/89528 ... 2668b0330e

You _will_ need the `jq` package, which is readily available on both macOS (via brew) or any Linux distribution.
