Short Description
Filebot wrapped in an inotifywait monitor loop.
Full Description

This image wraps filebot into inotify and watch a folder /watch.

How does it work:

The image will listen for single file with inotify on a /watch folder. and then proceed to run filebot on a separate /downloads folder.

Why a separate folder

Some downloads will contains many files so I wanted to only start the script once.


  • /watch: in this path inotify will wait for any text file and will execute filebot on the /downloads folder.
  • /downloads: This is where filebot will look for new content
  • /media : This is where filebot will place the file
  • /config : This is where filebot will place the his config files file.
    • amc-excludes.txt
    • amc.log
    • scripts/ : The filebot script that will be executed. It can be modified, is so it won't be replaced.
    • scripts/ : A post process script, where you can add any script to be executed after filebot is done. (cleanup, move downloded file, etc.)


I needed a way for many services [deluge, pyLoad, amule] to use filebot as a post process script but did not want to implement multiple filebot scripts.
