this 17 script cluster runs continuously on a delayed loop. you keep the command prompt open and follow a very simplified, readable output of what's happening (with color coding for each script), and the ability to interact in certain situations. each loop lasts a fraction of a second if no job is found, and ends in a main menu sort of prompt line that allows user to access functions like saveable debug settings (i.e. verbal mode or toggle echo for each script individually), fast duplicate video checking and collection caring.
it has a powerful importing script that handles downloads from a generic downloads directory. it should be generically compatible. I use it for qbittorrent, jdownloader and handbrake incoming files. it extracts any archive, can prompt user for a password, and empties recycle bin if out of space to operate. it is set to put videos, mp3s, roms and others into different directories. it applies gain to mp3s. videos get integrated subtitles off opensubtitles and a filebot rename for added searchable information like movie director, genres, certification, rating, v/a quality and finally, the imdb tag that can be used to quick access the imdb page for each video. renaming has a intricate quality control system in place to make sure no video gets mislabeled.
another power tool here is the teachable quick sorting mechanism that uses easily adjustable database files filled with scored keywords to sort the videos, allowing for a much more complex, better serving directory structure. this, together with other sorting mechanisms allow for things like auto-hide porn, collect single (pilot) episodes, separation of short and long duration videos.
this is what it looks like.
import is grey, declaring the found complete directory. the others are displaying the resulting file when a change of name or location has been achieved. green is the renaming process, white is sort by length, red ones are sorted by the keyword sorter.
this way your downloads are taken care of, your files are moved where they can be found, additional information is readily available and searchable. so, together with icaros thumbnailer and directory opus which supports unlimited thumbnail sizes I believe this can be a proper replacement for a media manager/launcher. it is for me.
I currently have it set up to service this folder structure (capital letters)
