Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a fairly decent amount of videos and music (legally acquired, of course :)) and I usually maintain them by hand. Lately, I have grown bored of having to do that manually when a computer would probably do it way better than I.

Do you know a software that does (possibly all of) the followings tasks:

  • Detect and rename TV shows (I usually use the excellent tvnamer python script)
  • Allows to tag videos to add some meta information (year of broadcast, style, and so on)
  • Organizes the files according to a configurable pattern
  • Handle videos reencoding and subtitles inclusion (to ease streaming to restricted devices, like XBOX 360 or PS3)

Or alternatively: do you know any project whose goal is that and needs some help ?

I feel this need is shared by many people (at least around me) and it would please a lot of people to have such a tool !

Software recommendations are generally off topic at superuser. –  EBGreen Oct 9 '12 at 19:35
What you're looking for is movie library/catalog software. I'm sure you'll find something. To get you started: Five Best Movie Cataloging Tools –  slhck Oct 9 '12 at 21:06
@EBGreen: I have asked for software recommandations in the past but it seems rules have changed. Fair enough. If I mind ask, is there any stack-exchange website where such a question is not off-topic ? –  ereOn Oct 9 '12 at 21:06
Not that I am aware of. For what ii is worth, software recommendations have always been off topic. It's probable that they just weren't noticed. –  EBGreen Oct 9 '12 at 21:12
