Search subtitles for all your movies and series with a single command line script

Project description

Search subtitles for all your movies and series with a single command line script

PyPI version


Subseek is a Python script which list all your local movies and series and search subtitles for them. The web search is done using different subtitle providers (currently Subdivx only) and different search engine providers (Google and DuckDuckGo). It uses the file and path name with an algorithm which made several changes to the searched text to find the best match. You can search, in example, subtitles for all the seasons of a complete TV show, a couple of movies and the last episode of your favorite TV show in a single command line script.

python -m subseek -p (path) [option]

Options and arguments:
-p path      : String. Required. Root path to start the process;
               also --path=path.
