Feature Requests: Version of movie

Post by kim » 24 Jun 2017, 02:14

Be able to detect if your file of the movie is e.g. the extended version, unrated or just the normal version

I think it can be done via e.g. this file from IMDB:
ftp://ftp.fu-berlin.de/pub/misc/movies/ ... es.list.gz

e.g.
xXx (2002) 124
xXx (2002) 132 (unrated director's cut)

1. if movie file +- 1-2min from "version" then use in naming the file
2. maybe even use in htpc's nfo to display correct version runtime <runtime>132</runtime> instead of <runtime>124</runtime>

from here:
ftp://ftp.fu-berlin.de/pub/misc/movies/database/
source: http://www.imdb.com/interfaces

The file is big but if cut away all movies with only "normal" version then so big

I would only consider this feature if TheMovieDB was able to provide the necessary data. FileBot does not use IMDb.

For this feature, I'd recommend making your own web service, that takes [imdbid, runtime] then checks it's database, and returns the extra data you want if available. Due to the size of the data file, processing it directly in the format code for each movie is probably gonna be highly inefficient.

There's going to be stuff I had planned for 2017 but can't get to now but proper version support shouldn't be one of them. I really want to get to this one this year.

Support multiple versions of a movie (cuts, anniversary editions, 3D)
