Extract media information from torrent-like filename

Python versions

A python port of Jānis' awesome library written in javascript.

Extract all possible media information present in filenames. Multiple regex rules are applied on filename string each of which extracts correponding information from the filename. If a regex rule matches, the corresponding part is removed from the filename. In the end, the remaining part is taken as the title of the content.

Why?

Online APIs by providers like TMDb, TVDb and OMDb don't react to well to search queries which include any kind of extra information. To get proper results from these APIs, only the title of the content should be provided as the search query where this library comes into play. The accuracy of the results can be improved by passing in the year which can also be extracted using this library.

Usage

import PTN

info = PTN.parse('A freakishly cool movie or TV episode')

print info # All details that were parsed

PTN works well for both movies and TV episodes. All meaningful information is extracted and returned together in a dictionary. The text which could not be parsed is returned in the excess field.

Movies

PTN.parse('San Andreas 2015 720p WEB-DL x264 AAC-JYK')
# {
#     'group': 'JYK',
#     'title': 'San Andreas',
#     'resolution': '720p',
#     'codec': 'x264',
#     'year':  '2015',
#     'audio': 'AAC',
#     'quality': 'WEB-DL'
# }

PTN.parse('The Martian 2015 540p HDRip KORSUB x264 AAC2 0-FGT')
# {
#     'group': '0-FGT',
#     'title': 'The Martian',
#     'resolution': '540p',
#     'excess': ['KORSUB', '2'],
#     'codec': 'x264',
#     'year': 2015,
#     'audio': 'AAC',
#     'quality': 'HDRip'
# }

TV episodes

PTN.parse('Mr Robot S01E05 HDTV x264-KILLERS[ettv]')
# {
#     'episode': 5,
#     'season': 1,
#     'title': 'Mr Robot',
#     'codec': 'x264',
#     'group':  'KILLERS[ettv]'
#     'quality': 'HDTV'
# }

PTN.parse('friends.s02e01.720p.bluray-sujaidr')
# {
#     'episode': 1,
#     'season': 2,
#     'title': 'friends',
#     'resolution': '720p',
#     'group': 'sujaidr',
#     'quality': 'bluray'    
# }

Note

PTN does not gaurantee the fields group, excess and episodeName as these fields might be interchanged with each other. This shoudn't affect most applications since episode name can be fetched from an online database after getting the season and episode number correctly.
