At a local storage (ext3/ext4) I have thousands of files of various types. I need to sort them, however I can come up with the criteria to do so as long as it's possible to get an overview again.
I want to sort them based on their meta-data. This goes for id3 tags (mp3 etc.), info-headers of AVI, MKV, OGM... Various tools exist to read these mata-data from a command-line. Is anybody aware of an automated file sorter that just grabs meta-data, builds a folder-structure and moves the files?
On MacOS X there already is a similar tool (http://www.publicspace.net/BigMeanFolderMachine/) which builds folder hierarchies and sorts files based on various conditions.
