Automate Tv Show/series subtitles Renaming with Power Automate

If you download Tv Show/series from Torrent or other Online Platforms, especially from rarbg torrent sites. Most of the time there are many subtitle files in many different languages for each episode in a separate folder. organize and renaming them for use are time-consuming and painful. Hope this will Help.

Folder Structure for this Flow:

Flow Creation:

Create 3 input variables to enter Tv Show/series location, subtitle language and subtitle type you want. (ref:images: "input variable 1.jpg","input variable 2.jpg"and "input variable 3.jpg")

Copy the text and paste it on Flow.

An alternative way to do process 4: it will take a lot more time but still you this if you need:

/# Process 4: declare all folders under MainFolder as "Folders" (variable). and start deleting the other language subtitle files except for the desired subtitle language file.
Enter the preferred language on the input variables "MyLanguage"
#/
Folder.GetSubfolders Folder: FolderPath FolderFilter: $'''*''' IncludeSubfolders: False FailOnAccessDenied: True SortBy1: Folder.SortBy.NoSort SortDescending1: False SortBy2: Folder.SortBy.NoSort SortDescending2: False SortBy3: Folder.SortBy.NoSort SortDescending3: False Subfolders=> Folders
LOOP FOREACH Folder IN Folders
Folder.GetFiles Folder: Folder FileFilter: $'''*''' IncludeSubfolders: False FailOnAccessDenied: True SortBy1: Folder.SortBy.NoSort SortDescending1: False SortBy2: Folder.SortBy.NoSort SortDescending2: False SortBy3: Folder.SortBy.NoSort SortDescending3: False Files=> Files
LOOP FOREACH File IN Files
IF NotContains(File.Name, MyLanguage, True) THEN
File.Delete Files: File
END
END
END
/# Process 4: end
#/

I think the cookbook page detected words like Tv and series and thought of it as possible spam. You can use the Abuse report button and inform that it is not spam.

You can keep this post as it is, not needed to delete.

I reported this as you suggested. hope I'll get notified soon. Thank you!
