Pros

  • An open-source program.
  • Customizable episode naming scheme.
  • Includes a subtitle downloading and viewing function

Cons

  • Downloading subtitles requires the opensubtitles.org account

As you probably know, one of the major inconveniences of getting your movies and TV shows from torrents and other similar sources is that the file names are rather messy and make the film collections and the series episodes pretty hard to track down and organize. FileBot has been created specifically to solve this issue.

FileBot is a straightforward program that offers a quick and easy method of batch renaming multiple video files at once, using data from online sources like TheTVDB, AniDB or TVmaze for episodes, and TheMovieDB or IMDB for movies. Therefore, it makes it much easier for you to keep your TV show and movie collections neatly organized. It uses accurate automatic name detection of series, movies, and even anime films, so using it is really convenient.

Advanced users can customize the episode naming schemes to their taste through the so-called Groovy expressions. Moreover, FileBot lets you download subtitles from the popular OpenSubtitles.org service, but it requires you to use an OpenSubtitles.org account in order to do so. FileBot can also create and verify SFV, MD5, SHA1 and SHA256 checksum files. Though quite feature-rich and comprehensive, FileBot is easy to use thanks to its self-explanatory interface.

To conclude, FileBot is a great tool for anyone that want to put some order in movie collections and TV episodes. Best of all, the tool is completely free.
