Is there possibly a way to include the use of a "." AND "-" in the title to be recognized as just a "space" in the title? Just wondering as this is how i uniformally have named 90% of digital titles. Like so this.is.the.movie - (year) would be an example of how both characters have been used. so instead of renaming thousands of files, (if only you could do this for mp3 as well), lol, you would save my legs from severe blood loss while sitting forever editing one by one.

I'm very eager awaiting this next release, thanks for the additions
Will do. Right now I strip punctuation when attempting to match titles so the - should already be ok. For the periods instead of spaces this is a common source file naming convention so I'll add that as well. When I publish the MPAA later today (at work now so can't) I'll also push that. Could you do me a favor and give me 2-3 example folder names to test against to ensure it is working properly.

E.T. The Extra Terrestrial (1982) <-- this would be one rare example of where the period may or may not make a difference in the title, after i thought about the idea, but i wouldnt think it would hurt the "integrity" of the title, not sure bout that one

Garfield-A.Tail.Of.Two.Kitties.2006
Muppets - A Christmas Carol (1992)
Toy Story 3 - Buzz Lightyear Of Star Command, The Adventure Begins
Its A Wonderful Life (1947) Dvdrip Xvid
The Neverending Story (1984)

I just now seen a wacky error that yammm done, possibly a setting i fooled with.
I have all Home alone movies, named "Home Alone 1.avi" ( i think is what it was) all 4 of them were in the Home Alone dir, but yammm seen 3 of them as as the first Home Alone (pic included). I was also fooling with MyMovies2, but i dont think it was the one that did it. I believe the difference seen for "home alone 3" not being touched was saved by the "[Divx]" tag, and disc 3 of home alone 1 is actually Home alone #4... musta been named "home alone 4" in the group of "home alone 1,2,3,4" type. I think you understand.

Code:
<Disc>
  <Name>Home Alone</Name>
  <ID>YAMMM000|00000303</ID>
</Disc>
Did i tick a setting that may have done this by chance? not sure why it did so, all 3 files are different sized, etc. Tho the "home alone 1" and "home alone 2" "home alone 3" may have been seen as 3cds of one movie, as i just noticed the change of you compliling muliple parts of 1 movie, which thank you also btw, thats IS needed also. Just ran into a lil problem with that here i think. How about recognizing by "cd1" ?

eg;
O.Brother.Where.Art.Thou.2000.DVDRIP.XViD.cd1
O.Brother.Where.Art.Thou.2000.DVDRIP.XViD.cd2


if also, given this specific example among a few others, if there could be an ommit word box, so that when it found "Xvid" in title, it would also be "blank" as for the movie info lookup for whatever database chosen to get info/synopsis etc.

Digger,

I'll leave your first question to the proffesional

As for your second point, it's the playlist option you need. It will recognise that you have 1 movie with CD1 & CD2 and Yammm will create metadata for just 1 movie. You can even have it hide the 2 CD files.

here is also another example, for tv eps... with the "s01ep01" type of tag, season 1 episode 1

eg;
Dexter.S01E09.HDTV.XviD

another example of two different file names for same show, all in same parent dir, not seperated into each season, tho i actually should have.

eg; Family guy folder

101 - Death Has A Shadow
family.guy.511- I Take Thee Quagmire

if moving to a named parent directory for either the show name or season # would help, i would have no problem complying with that. In some other cases with 2cd movies, each cd1 and cd2 has its own folder, instead of being in the same folder. I think this may how you have had things in mind when compiling mulitiple parts for 1 movie? or no?

another example without the . or -, just the ()

The Goonies (1985)


hope this helps

yea, i figured out that this was what i did. I just want to know how it wants to "act" or looks for when compiling. this way i wouldnt run into this problem with how i have some things named, which is in rare cases, yet to go thru all titles yet

Oribital Shark is correct. Yammm only supports a single movie per folder. When multiple video files are found per folder it will group all files that are similar in naming. Home Alone 3 wasn't touched because of the extra tag that made it different enough from the rest of the video files to not be included. I did the a custom SoundEx to check for similarilties to account for all variations of CD1, Disc1, Side A, .... but so that trailers or samples wouldn't be included.

Sorry for the inconvenience this caused, I'll try to add verbage to make it more clear.

For E.T. it will still match on that as I have it try to match first using the unedited name than using a cleaned up name.

Eidt: This is only for movies. For TV episodes it will work either way, 1 episode per folder or multiple per folder. I just haven't enabled the TV portion yet.

no worries mikinho.... just reporting back, i understand. Tis why i'm just testing out and realize the work in progress.

so it look for "same.movie.title.cd1" and any other cd2/part2/side2/Disc2 it will then recognize as the next part? this was good that i posted, since none were named with the above mentioned, just "1" "2" "4"... and strange why it recognized 4 as the third part to home alone 1

Sorry I wasn't clear. It doesn't look for any particular phrase, CD, Part, ...

It just looks for filenames that are "similar" based on a SoundEx. I did this so I wouldn't have to account for the different naming conventions. So for your example Yammm found 4 video files and 2 groups.

Group 1:

Home Alone 1
Home Alone 2
Home Alone 4

Group 2:

Home Alone 3 [DivX] <== The DivX made it not part of Group 1

Yammm then renamed Group 1 as it only renames the first movie group (sorted by descending combined file size). It renamed Home Alone 4 as Home Alone 3 because it was the third file sorted by filename. Does that make sense?

As for multiple files for the same movie you could do a torrent search for AVI Joiner, it's super fast & there's no noticable join (video/audio wise). I can sen a PM if you want it, it's helped my loads

crystal clear. That shouldnt be a problem anyhow for me. I like to have seperate folders, just in some rare cases i have thrown same series into same parent folder, that can be fixed ALOT easier than all the renaming, much easier, lol
