What is Bazarr?

Bazarr links to your Radarr and Sonarr setups and will automatically find and download matching subtitles for your media, this is useful if you are looking for an alternative language or when subs were not included with the original file.

Let’s Begin

In this guide I will take you through the steps to get Bazarr up and running in Docker.

In order for you to successfully use this guide please complete the setting up a docker user guide, or have your ID details to hand.

Downloading the Bazarr Image

Open up Docker within DSM and navigate to the ‘Registry’ tab and search for ‘Bazarr’.

In the list of available containers select the one made by Linuxserver as shown below, right click on it and select ‘Download’ or click the button at the top of the window.

When the dialogue pops up asking you to choose a version, make sure you choose ‘Latest’ from the list.

You can check the status of the download over on the ‘Image’ tab.

Setting up the container

In Docker click on the ‘Image’ tab, in the list of your containers select the ‘Linuxserver Bazarr’ image and click on ‘Launch’

The first screen will ask how you want to set up the Docker network, to keep things simple we will be using the Docker Host option which means we will not need to set up any additional ports. Click Next once you have selected the option.

General Settings

Next you will be greeted with the General Settings screen, this is where you can start specifying some of your preferences.

You can change the name of the container to anything you like, and you may want to enable Auto Restart as this will ensure Bazarr starts automatically if you reboot your NAS.

You will also notice a Configure capabilities button — don’t change anything in here!

Next up we are going to click on the ‘Advanced Settings’ button, this will take you to a new window with a number of tabs which we are going to work through.

Environment (PGID,  PUID and Timezone)

Next we are going to set up a couple of environment variables that docker will use to allow the container access to our files and folders and also to tell it where we live in the world.

Click the Add button, and fill in the following details as per the table/screenshot, you will need to do one at a time.

VariableValue
PUIDThe UID you obtained in the user setup guide
PGIDThe GID you obtained in the user setup guide
TZYour timezone wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tz_database_time_zones

You do not need to set up anything on these tabs.

Press ‘Save’ to go back to the initial setup screen, then press ‘Next’

Volume Settings

We will now be specifying the directories where Bazarr will store its configuration files and where to find our media.

Click on Add Folder, click on the docker share and create a new sub-folder called ‘bazarr’ select this folder and click ‘select’

Now add ‘/config’ to the ‘Mount path’ box

Click Add Folder again and this time select the top level ‘data’ share and click Select.

You will now enter ‘/data’ into the ‘Mount path’ box

Your path settings should now look like the table/screenshot below.

File/FolderMount path
docker/bazarr/config
data/data

Click Next to move to the final screen.

Summary

You have now completed the setup of the container.

You will be shown an overall summary of the settings we have specified, this is a good time to double-check everything is correct. Finally, click on Done and the container should start to boot.

You should now be able to access Bazarr via the IP of your NAS followed by the port 6767

e.g. 192.168.0.40:6767



Docker Compose

You can use the below code saved as bazarr.yml in the ‘/docker/bazarr’ share, this will do the entire process above in one quick command via SSH. Ensure you change the variables to your own.

version: "3.8"
services:
  linuxserver-bazarr:
    image: lscr.io/linuxserver/bazarr
    container_name: bazarr
    environment:
      - PUID=YOURUID
      - PGID=YOURGID
      - TZ=Europe/London
    volumes:
      - /volume1/docker/bazarr/:/config
      - /volume1/data/:/data
    network_mode: host
    restart: unless-stopped
sudo docker-compose -f /volume1/docker/bazarr/bazarr.yml up -d
