For anyone with a large media collection (movies and tv shows) who craves file organization, mediatidy is a project that helps you keep your content... tidy.
This project is early in dev and a WIP. Please file issues!
Point mediatidy at your movie or TV show directory and it will do the following (any file deletion requires your approval):
For dupe detection to work best your files should be properly named. mediatidy works best with the following conventions:
Movies should have title followed by year:
Movie Title (1974).mkv
Movie Title - 1974.mkv
Movie Title 1974.mkv
TV shows should be have show name, followed by formatted season/episode, then episode name:
Show Name - S02E03 - Ep Name.mkv
Show Name - S02E03e01 - Ep Name.mkv
Show Name - 02x03 - Ep Name.mkv
Show Name - 2014.03.07 - Ep Name.mkv
Without proper file naming conventions duplicate matching can be unreliable. You do want to be tidy right?
NodeJS and ffmpeg are required to run mediatidy. Find the installers and install the latest versions; if using Mac OSX consider installing homebrew and easily install what you need with the following:
brew install node brew install ffmpeg
Be sure all dependencies are install before installing mediatidy.
sudo npm install -g mediatidy
sudo npm uninstall -g mediatidy rm -rf ~/.mediatidy
See mediatidy help for a full list of commands.
Add media folder to mediatidy you would like to process with:
$ mediatidy add-paths
Let's tidy up those media files!
