A utility for organizing a media folder
cinefolders is a command-line utility for organizing organizing media folders into a structure formatted for Plex, Emby, a flash drive, etc.. You can also automate this to automatically add videos to your media folder, keeping it organized.
If you want to get more info like the trailers, posters, reviews, etc.. Just see the sister project to this one: cinefiles.
Changes this unorganized mess:
