FileBot Portable is a professional software application whose purpose is to help you organize and rename your media files, download subtitles, fetch episodes from TheTVDB, AniDB, TVRage, or Serienjunkiesk, as well as create and verify SFV, MD5 and SHA-1 files.
It comes in handy especially if you need to rename your movies, TV shows, anime videos, as well songs.
The advantages of being portable
This is the portable version of the program and it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.
You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to manage your media files on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.
Since this is Java-based program, you should make you have previously installed the working environment on your computer otherwise you cannot run the tool.
Although it comes packed with many dedicated parameters, it sports a clean and intuitive layout. There are several main tabs that allow you to carry out the operations, such as rename files, download episodes, grab subtitles, verify SFV files, and analyze the space on your disk.
FileBot Portable gives you the possibility to add the files or folders that you want to rename in the primary panel using the built-in browse button or “drag and drop” operations.
The program comes packed with several renaming modes, such as episode, movie, and music. It offers support for an automatic renaming process, and data is grabbed from various online websites (e.g. IMDb, TheTVDb, ID3 Tags).
There are several powerful renaming options for helping you preserve or overwrite the file extension, rename or copy the items, as well as keep links or hard links. Additionally, you can view a history with all renamed items, filter the results, and export the list to XML file format for uploading it in your future projects.
Advanced users may also venture to define their own episode and movie naming schemes using Groovy expressions.
Grabbing episodes and subtitles
The utility enables you to fetch episodes or subtitles from different online sources, download all seasons or only the desired one, and pick the language. Plus, you may find the exact subtitles that you are looking for, upload subtitles to OpenSubtitles, view SRT, ASS, and SUB files, as well as transcode any subtitle to UTF-8 encoded SRT file format.
Last but not least, you are allowed to create and verify SFV, MD5 and SHA-1 files, directly compare two or more directory trees, as well as perform command-line tasks.
During our testing we have noticed that FileBot Portable carries out a task pretty quickly. However, just like any similar Java tool, it is not quite friendly with system resources, so the overall performance of the computer may be hampered.
All in all, FileBot Portable proves to be a reliable application that comes packed with a decent suite of features, and is suitable for rookies and professionals alike.
