I've struggled with subtitles for my media in the last few days, now that I've got I grip on this i like to share with the community.

You need the awesome Media Center Master and http://www.filebot.net/ instaled on you machine.

On you Media Center Master, go to the Post-Processing Tab over Setting & Preferences

Image

What you have to do is point the Filebot.exe under Program and set the variables for the command.

For Movies I use this:

-get-subtitles %V --lang en --output srt --encoding utf8 -non-strict --conflict skip

The %V is the variable that MCM uses to pass the full path to the main media file
all other I've got on the Filebot help = http://www.filebot.net/cli.html

For Series I use this:

-get-missing-subtitles -r %F --lang en --output srt --encoding utf8 -non-strict

The %F is the path for the series folder

And for the TV episodes I use this:

-get-subtitles %V --lang en --output srt --encoding utf8 -non-strict --conflict skip

There is allot more options you can use with this post-processing, it is an amazing tool.
I find that the KISS rule is the best Keep It Simple Stupid ;-)

The trick part here is, If you have allot of movies and series by now and want to get subtitles for all the ( in my case more than 20.000 ) video files, do not set this up before get the subtitles. The Filebot uses allot resources and MCM will hung.

Since you have to install filebot , uset-it to get your subtitles and after set the automation.

I love what you did here,
i use it and works perfectly for my collection

however, since i need 2 subtitles, once in english and one in Arabic,

Thanks for the tip works great for me although I have chosen to not run the middle one tv show at this point
rednoah (FB Guru) also supplied following to get the subtitles to match in name
add --format "match video"
eg abc123.avi will now get abc123.srt using FB instead of the abc123.eng.srt
MCM was doing it's job and "cleaning up" the just downloaded incorrectly named files as soon as processing was run

dukefleed your question may have been answered on FB forum using the scripting

I downloaded the subtitles but they are not in sync with the videos :(
I figured, for the correct subtitle to download, the query also needs to include the torrent uploader name. For ex : Yify's movie's subtitle file will be different then say, DDR's upload. MCM already removed and renamed the file names with just movie names and removed the rest.

How to get the subtitles now ! I am bummed :?
