Re: [Ranger-users] Shell script over multiple files

Hello Jan and Hut,
I am not good with python so sorry for that.

Following Hut's suggestion, I made a small shell script (sorry for lack of exception handling etc and possibly inefficient  shell scripting) and saved it as "mpvsubs.sh"

if [ "$extension1" == "srt" -o "$extension1" == "sub" ]
        mpv $filename2 --sub-file=$filename1
        mpv $filename1 --sub-file=$filename2

After this I added following line to my rc.conf file
map X chain shell /home/gcmouli/mpvsubs.sh %s; mark_files all=True val=False

So now I just select the two files with spacebar and press "X" and it starts playing movie with subs.

alternatively, you can make a python script (from Arch Linux Wiki):
You can define python command:
import os
from ranger.core.loader import CommandLoader

class seemovie(Command):
    def execute(self):
        """ Compress marked files to current directory """
        cwd = self.fm.thisdir
        marked_files = cwd.get_selection()

Which will define seemovie command. In cwd.get_selection() you have selected files.
You can than run a shell script or do what you want in python.

Thanks Hut,
                  Excellent hack. It works !!!
 I was expecting something like "mpvsubs.sh $1 $2" where 1 and 2 will be filenames selected, whose extensions will be sorted out inside the script and mpv playing over them from the same script.
Anyways above solution rocks.

Thanks again,

Hey there,

Can't think of an elegant way to do it, but you could type `yy` on the
subtitle, then navigating to the movie and running

    shell mpv %f --sub-file=%c

This "abuses" the copy buffer as a second file selector.

You could finish with a `uy` to clear the copy buffer to avoid
accidently copying the subtitle.  The whole command would then be:

    map X chain shell mpv %f --sub-file=%c; uncut
