The Renaming feature of media manager allows the user to specify a directory. Every subdirectory of this directory will be checked for a .icons subdirectory. If a .icons subdirectory is present, all of the sibling subdirectories’ children files will be renamed using data from thetvdb.com in the format:
Show Name - SXXEXX - Episode Name
-- user-provided directory |-- directory 1 | |-- subdirectory 1 | |-- Season 1 | | |-- [TV]Super_Hyper_Interesting_TV_Show_01 | | |-- [TV]Super_Hyper_Interesting_TV_Show_02 | | |-- [TV]Super_Hyper_Interesting_TV_Show_03 | | |-- [TV]Super_Hyper_Interesting_TV_Show_04 | |-- .icons | |-- Specials |-- directory 2 |-- Season 1 | |-- Episode 1 | |-- Episode 2 | |-- Episode 3 | |-- Episode 4 |-- Season 3 | |-- Episode 1 |-- .icons
Given this directory tree, the directories ‘subdirectory 1’ and ‘directory 2’ will be used for renaming, as they both contain a .icons subdirectory.
All other subdirectories’ children (Episode 1, Episode 2, [TV]Super_Hyper_Interesting_TV_Show_01 etc.) will now be renamed.
The information is determined like this:
Show Name: This is the name of the parent directory of the .icons directory, in this case it would be ‘directory 2’ or ‘subdirectory 1’
Season Number: This is determined by the individual subdirectory’s names. For Example, ‘Season 1’ results in 1, ‘Season 3’ in 3. All directories that can’t be parsed like this (‘Specials’, for example) are assigned the season number 0.
Episode Number: The alphabetical position of the file in the Season folder
Episode Name: Determined by the database on thetvdb.com using the other gathered information
The program can also automatically set folder icon properties of directories containing a .icons subdirectory. The .icons directory can contain icon files (.png for normal operating systems, .ico for Windows) that match the name of the other subdirectories. The exception to this rule is the main.png/main.ico file, which will be used to iconize the parent directory.
-- user-provided directory |-- directory 1 |-- subdirectory 1 |-- Season 1 | |-- English | |-- German |-- .icons | |-- main.png | |-- German.png | |-- English.png | |-- Season 1.png | |-- Specials.png |-- Specials
This will set the folder icon of ‘subdirectory 1’ to ‘.icons/main.png’, ‘Season 1’ to ‘.icons/Season 1.png’, ‘German’ to ‘.icons/German.png’ and so forth.
This is currently supported under Windows and Linux file managers that support gvfs metadata.
Batch Download Manager
The Batch Download Manager (BDLM from now on) can be used to download files via the XDCC protocol normally used in conjunction with IRC networks. The BDLM also support searching for files on three different packlist search engines:
By being provided metadata by the user, the BDLM can also rename and iconize newly downloaded files and created directories using the same mechanisms described above.
It is possible to select more than one file to download (hence the ‘batch’)
This will be able to manage your existing media in some way. It’s not implemented yet.
