AKA Movie Names?

Post by mterrill »

Hi,

Is there any way to choose from a also known as when renaming movies?

i.e. The Lost World - Jurassic Park change to Jurassic Park - The Lost World

Is there a way to choose from AKA lists etc?

Thanks,

Yes and No. There's no way for you to choose via the UI. You can do it via the format, but you'd have to programmatically choose the right AKA title which makes things tricky.


:idea: Having your own list of hardcoded AKA titles that you prefer might be a solution ➔ viewtopic.php?f=5&t=182

:idea: Instead of fixing (arguably bad) movie naming, you could use the {collection} binding to sort movie files into a Jurassic Park Collection folder.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.

the "AKA list" is =
https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/330-th ... uage=en-US

meaning NO you cant do it using AKA list

the only ways to do it is via "4. Mappings from a CSV file"

or maybe this... if you are from e.g. Sweden

Code: Select all

{localize.swe.n}
or

Code: Select all

{collection.replaceAll(/(?i)collection/)}/{ny}/{fn}
output:
Jurassic Park/The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997)/filename
