Quickly rename video or music files.


FileBot helps you easily and quickly organize and rename movies, TV shows, and music files.

  • Automatic naming. FileBot retrieves file information from various online databases but leaves room for you to manage file naming how you like using groovy expressions.
  • Add subtitles. Manually search for, download, and add subtitles using features built into FileBot.
  • Command-line functionality. FileBot features a simple command-line interface that makes all of FileBot's functionality available from the console or in automated scripts.

No reason to pay as you can use the java version on Mac just fine. Everyone else gets it free so why not Mac too! Just be sure to install Java 8

MetaZ does this much better, it allows greater control over the info and has a better interface. Just my two cents!

Highly recommended.

Have personally used this app for a long time. A must have for everyone, from media organising junkies and for those that have no idea where to start.

I've been using Filebot to rename TV series, but I have to keep using VLC to get subtitles. The subtitles feature doesn't really work in this Filebot. It says it uses, the same that VLC uses, but it won't work without registering a username and password, which makes absolutely no sense, since no registration is required. The VLC plugin can also find by name and hash, so I would really love to see Filebot evolve to be able to do this. It would help getting subtitles in batch instead of one at a time with VLC.

I love this app, but it looks like there is no longer a free Mac version, however there is a portable java version. I took the 4.2 app, and copied in all of the files from the portable version into the app package, and the missing libraries, and I was able to get a working 4.5 version. It's a great app, but sad that there is no longer a free Mac version. It is free on every other platform, but on Mac, they make you buy it from the app store.
