Leave it as 0.0.0.0 if you want to listen on every available IP address (recommended). If you are running inside a docker container, that's the recommended value.

Port Number

Should be an available TCP port on the computer running Bazarr. Default is 6767 and it is the recommended value.

URL Base

This option gives you the opportunity to serve Bazarr in a sub-directory. Ex.: http://127.0.0.1:6767/bazarr/ instead of the default http://127.0.0.1:6767/

Mainly used when you use a reverse proxy, if you don't use a reverse proxy or don't know what it is leave this empty!!!

Send anonymous usage information, nothing that can identify you. This includes information on which providers you use, what languages you search for, Bazarr, Python, Sonarr, Radarr and what OS version you are using. We will use this information to prioritize features and bug fixes. Please, keep this enabled as this is the only way we have to better understand how you use Bazarr.


Sonarr

Host-

image-20200520223746802

Hostname or IP address

Enter the hostname or the IP address of the computer running your Sonarr instance.

Be aware that when using Bazarr in docker, you cannot reach another container on the same Docker host using the loopback address (ex.: 127.0.0.1 or localhost). Loopback address refer to the Bazarr Docker container, not the Docker host.

Port Number-

Enter the TCP port of your Sonarr instance. Default is 8989.

URL Base-

Mainly used by those who expose Sonarr behind a reverse proxy (ex.: /sonarr). Don't forget the leading slash. In fact, it should look exactly the same as in Sonarr settings. Mainly used when you use a reverse proxy.

If you don't use a reverse proxy or don't know what it is leave this empty !!!

SSL enabled

Enable this if your Sonarr instance is exposed trough SSL.

Not needed if you reach it with a local IP address.

API key

Enter your Sonarr API key here.

Click the Test button after filling in all the fields. Make sure the test is successful before you proceed.

Options

image-20200723142916426

Minimum Score

Select the minimal score (in percentage) required for a subtitles file to be downloaded. Are your subs often out of sync? Raise the score!

Download Only Monitored

Automatic download of Subtitles will only happen for monitored shows/episodes in Sonarr.

Excluded Tags

Episodes from series with those tags (case sensitive) in Sonarr will be excluded from automatic download of Subtitles. In Sonarr you add a custom made tag to a show, in this case the shows with these tags will be ignored by Bazarr. examples: dutch, anime

Excluded Series Types

Episodes from series with those types in Sonarr will be excluded from automatic download of Subtitles. Options: Standard, Anime, Daily

Path Mappings

image-20200723144000147

You should only use this section if Sonarr and Bazarr use a different path to access the same episode file (.mkv). (for example if you run Sonarr on a different device then Bazarr or have a Synology and mix packages with Docker.)

animated-exclamation-mark-image-0006

IF YOU GOT THE SAME VALUES ON BOTH SIDES THEN YOU DON'T NEED IT !!! IT SHOULD ALSO BE REMOVED OR ELSE YOU WILL GET A ERROR.

animated-exclamation-mark-image-0006

Click on Add and you will get a popup window image-20200724211005207

Ex.:

  • Browse or type the path for Sonarr: /media/tv_shows/seriesX/
  • Browse or type the path for Bazarr: `\nas\tv\seriesX\

The common part of both path can be discarded and you should use those values:

  • Path for Sonarr: /media/tv_shows/
  • Path for Bazarr: \\nas\tv\

If everything runs on Docker you normally don't need to use this. Except if you have messed up path mappings and then it would be smarter to fix those first to have consistency and well planned paths.


Radarr

The same setup as you did for Sonarr except for the default Port Number: 7878
