FileBot is the ultimate tool for organizing and renaming Movies, TV Shows, Anime or Music. It's smart, highly customizable, and just works.

If you're using HTPC software like Plex, Kodi or Emby then FileBot is a must-have utility!

FileBot will match your files against TheMovieDB or TheTVDB and then rename (or move / copy / symlink / hardlink) them exactly the way you want it. Anything is possible!

If you need help extracting archives en masse or checking SFV / MD5 / SHA1 / SHA256 files then FileBot will get that done too.

Getting Started:

Organize your media files:
1. Drag media files onto "Original Files"
2. Click "Fetch Data" and select a database
3. Hit "Rename"!

► Tip #1: You can use drag-n-drop to load files from Finder into FileBot.

Bad Update

Used to be able to select Episodes in the left column and search for tv series. When the series appear then right click with mouse and shift the correct titles to the Rename section but this is no longer working. Also the program does not recognise the tv series folder name from the hard drive and just sees the episode number within the folder and tries to find a tv series named 1, 2 or 3 etc. It was working fine before the update.

Missing the subtitle funtion

the app is missing the subtitles funtion therfore it is not the same as advertised on the website. if Mac version is missing this funtion so it should be clear in app description. Overall, the app is very simple and very good for people who like to organise their media
