NZBGet can't offer you this functionality because it wasn't designed to manage your video library. But what you're trying to achieve can be done through the command line:
Code: Select all
/path/to/nzbget/scripts/Subliminal.py -f -s /path/to/the/video/you/want/subs/for.mkv

Going back to my first point, NZBGet will download content, and it hands it off to scripts (if you've set this up) to do all the rest of your library management.
For that reason NZBGet doesn't keep a status quo on where your video file ends up at the end of the day. Whether you told it to hand it off to Sickbeard, Sonarr, Couchpotato, or if even you just had VideoSort.py do some magic on it... NZBGet doesn't know or care.
For subtitles, you can use NZBGet's fantastic ScanScript
mode to run Subliminal at a periodic intervals of time and provide it directories it should scan. Subliminal will only touch content that is newer then whatever you defined in your MaxAge
(Subliminal) settings. It sounds like maybe you have this set to a really high value (other than it's default of 24) causing it to scan everything each time.

No not at this time. All matched content from all providers are pooled together and then scanned even further. It matches the title, the year, the releasing group, resolution (720p, 1080p), audio codec, etc. The more matches; the higher the score. The highest weighted/scored item is then downloaded (this usually always works). To achieve the best effects of this script; make sure you keep all of the video details.
Hence don't rename 'What.A.Great.Video.2015-SCENE.720p.infoid.moreinfo.id.mkv
' to ''What.A.Great.Video.mkv
' and 'then' scan that for subtitles. It will be like rolling the dice on getting a successful match. No amount of code can ever 'assume' what subs go with a video that has had all of it's detailed content stripped from it.
Hope this helps.
