What is Bazarr?

Bazarr links to your Radarr and Sonarr setup 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 two preceding guides

Downloading the Bazarr Image

Open up Container Manager 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 then click ‘Download’.

The pop-up box will ask which version you want to download, make sure you choose ‘Latest’ from the list of available versions.

You will automatically be taken to the ‘Image’ tab once the download has completed select the image and click ‘Run’.

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.

We won’t need to change any other settings on this screen. We are now going to work through the remain settings. Click on Next.

Port Settings

We won’t be changing any of the ports the container uses. You can repeat the one shown on the right side of the settings page which is the internal Container Port onto the left side which is the Local Port which is the one you will access in your browser. Now move to the next section.

Volume Settings

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

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

Repeat this process to add the /data folder.

You will notice the section next to each folder is blank, we need to add a ‘Mount Path’ which maps the folders to a folder within the container. Use the ones shown below.

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

We can now move to the next section.

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.

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

Capabilities

Nothing to change here leave at the default selection.

Network

In the Network section choose the ‘synobridge’ from the drop-down menu that we created earlier.

Execution Command / Links

Leave both of these section with their default settings.

Press ‘Next’ to go back to the Final Summary 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’ share, this will do the entire process above in one quick command via SSH. Ensure you change the variables to your own.

YAML
services:
  linuxserver-bazarr:
    image: linuxserver/bazarr
    container_name: bazarr
    environment:
      - PUID=YOURUID
      - PGID=YOURGID
      - TZ=Europe/London
    volumes:
      - /volume1/docker/bazarr/:/config
      - /volume1/data/media:/data/media
    ports:
      - 6767:6767
    network_mode: synobridge
    restart: unless-stopped

Bash
sudo docker-compose -f /volume1/docker/bazarr.yml up -d
