Add support for renaming movies

Reported by Ramon Felciano | July 20th, 2011 @ 08:58 AM

Hi --

Love tvnamer and have been hunting around for a similar commandline program that will automatically rename movies with similar success rate. Can't find anything close so I'm wondering whether the tvnamer code structure could be extended to handle films as well? I imagine that the lack of episode information might make the pattern matching simpler, and it would be nice to ride on top of the existing code for scanning files, copying to destinations, etc.

    I suspect it would be far more work to modify tvnamer into working on films, than it would be to steal the few useful functions and write a separate filmnamer project

    I wrote https://github.com/dbr/themoviedb a while ago which would be suitable for such a thing, I've just never had a need for it, as film files are one-offs and usually easy to manually name

    Closing - I think such a thing would belong as a separate project (which could happily steal bits of code from tvnamer)

    Renaming of movies always done by the movie makers. I am thinking to make a movie the concept of which should be based on 7 dollar essay development. I must say this blog is a unique blog.
