yea, well... that kinda goes back to my statement about the will power, time and more hdd's If i'm gonna tackle that so called problem or task, i'm gonna hit them all at once, which, i may find myself very busy. Have used aviJoiner in the past, i do like also.

My only problem now is that in MC, when viewing the "Movies" if there is a two part movie, it shows both parts. I guess the workaround is to either join the two, or does that create playlist for multi files do the trick of the same?

If you enabled hiding the files when creating a playlist is does the trick on Vista. On Windows 7 RC1 it shows the hidden files so it actually makes the matter worse. I have 2 other ideas for getting around this but I'm waiting to see if they fix this in RTM prior to making those changes.

I think it creates a playlist and treats it as a single movie

update: never mind LOL

well yes you ARE correct orbital. I just came here to post on this. As with one instance, yammm joined both files, and created just one. This was on my first try by putting two cd parts in same folder that originally were in a cd1 cd2 folder. Now every time after i did this, it now creates the [1 of 2] tag. I'm not sure if how it was done was due to how or when both parts were in the same dir, at the same time, both renamed to this.movie.cd1 and .cd2 respectively. The one merged and got the folder.jpg almost instantly, with a refresh. I'm still trying to replicate the first time scenario results. Currently i have do not the check in create playlist for multi files. Only Rename movie files and ignore nfo.

There is a batch file that can be run that reads a movie title & creates a folder of the same name & moves the movie file into it. DemonSeed provided a download for it file2folder.zip

The only drawback in your case would be any file with a CD1 or Part1 prefix will be put into it's own seperate directory
Note   Note
Handy if you have all/lot of files in 1 directory like i used to

Note sure how it comes to DemonSeed's batch file (haven't looked at it) but the below command will do it as well.

Code:
FOR %i IN (*.*) DO (IF NOT EXIST "%~ni" MD "%~ni") & (MOVE "%i" "%~ni")

Mikinho,

another question. Example, i have the movie Great Expectations, now this movie has been redone many times, tho this is the 1998 version, yammm wants to default back to 1946 version and folder.jpg. Is there a syntax with dates that will have yammm choose the correct version of a movie? another example is the new Halloween movie by rob zombie, and the new friday the 13th thats coming out in near future. Just wonder about how you have configured things to recognize what from what.

If you rename the folder to Great Expectations (1998) it is designed to use the date provided for matching. If it is reverting back to the 1946 let me know, I may have inadvertingly broke that when I was optimizing some regular expressions.

The way matching works for mutliple "exact" matches is:

1- Check if a year is present in the folder name, if so use that for matching first.

2- If no year is present then take the "most" popular of the two. The popular ranking is a score value given from The Movie DB.

I was thinking of adding an option to check the video runtime and compare it to the supplied runtime as a third check, thoughts?

ahh i see, thanks for the clarification. So for title and "correctness" with movie as far as what version and what if part of a movie ... is recognized first by folder name (year), and by filename if part of a series or cd1,2 ect? Can you specify a little more in the heirarchy of the "resolution query" for the lookup info? if you can understand my babble there, lol.

secondly, nevermind my drunken sailor comment about the one movie that "appeared" joined. I happen to have been doing a batch of movies at the time that i thought was two seperate cd's arc'd, when the ONE was actually already "pre-joined" beforehand and i didnt notice.

I'm not so sure how accurate that would be as user independant rip settings. Tho it couldnt hurt as having another reference to re-check by.


Could you also explain the "Bin Fix" ? I just unwrapped a few old svcds, 2 and 3 cds. It recognized the one with just spaces in the title, info'd up just fine, poster as well, renamed all three. So i didnt understand quite what you meant by "bin fix" earlier

Right now it renames .bin and .cue files properly but the problem with this is that a .cue file is really a helper file. It contains the filename of the associate .bin file. The same thing happens with .dvd and .iso files. A .dvd file contains additional information on the image.

So when renames "Donnie-Darko.dvd" to "Donnie Darko (2001).dvd" and "Donnie-Darko.iso" to "Donnie Darko (2001).iso" it breaks the link between the two. For most image mounting tools this won't matter as you can mount directly from the .bin or .iso file but I'm still putting a fix in place.
