I was wondering whether these features are upcoming or could be looked into?
1. filebot scraping IMDB link from the .nfo (the IMDB link should be in the .nfo in most if not all cases where an .nfo exists) and using that to identify the movie name, year, etc.
2. filebot reading the name the name of the .nfo file AND directory name to determine the group who released it. If #1 fails then I imagine filebot could also identify the movie name and year from the .nfo file/directory name in alot of cases
I've noticed that when a movie is not automatically identified and a prompt arrives to the UI, I can generally tell quite easily what the movie is based on the directory/file name - some times the right movie doesn't even appear in the list. I hope the 2 points above can help with improved automatic identification, however whilst their are standards there is no strict enforcement of naming conventions across the internet hence there is always going to be a element of manual work by the filebot user. This being the case would it be possible to make some improvements to the process where a movie is not automatically identified?
A couple of points/suggestions:
1. Simple fix - increase the size of the selection window so the directory name can be read:
You can see the difference in the following 2 screenshots:
2. There are some instances where the correct movie doesn't appear in the list, but the directory/file can make it quite obvious to the user:
Can you provide a better ability to update these movies by providing us the ability to either search for a title or input an imdb link.
3. In other cases where bits and pieces of information are missing, is there anyway we can be presented with a list of movies and the bits of information which are not available. We may be able to mass input the missing details in preparation for the filebot to do it's thing.
Apologies this seems like such a large list, although I think it would make things alot easier for filebot users if the above could be achieved.
