TV & Movie Script (Windows)

Post by rascalli »

This script is made by : kiwimonk

What does it do ??

- If it containes a movie file, it renames it based on the folder name
- Moves movies into a folder called : Movies
- When it's a TV show it sticks it in a folder named after wahtever is before the first dash
- If the folder does not contain a movie name , it removes the  _

Set-up instructions :

To setup the script in windows explorer. you open regedit...
      \HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\
     
      Make a key in here called Movie Magic
      then a key in that one called Command
      Now in command double click on the (Default) string and set it to:
      C:\Python25\python.exe C:\xx\aftersab.py "%1"
     
      Good to go! Now just right click on a folder in your download directory in Windows Explorer. to give it a go. If you uncomment the last line:
      #forty = raw_input("Continue")
      It will leave the output on the screen.. can be handy if its not working right.

For Script : http://binpaste.pastebin.ca/869508

So this is a script you run yourself on folders !!!

Warning: This script is highly unpolished, and sometimes can screw up.
Its setup not to delete movie directories with stuff still in it in case that happens.
Like sometimes it will only pickup one cd and leave the other named wrong.

I put the command in PostProc.cmd (and modified the aftersab.py code a bit)

Saved script as aftersab.py in sab folder (where PostProc.cmd is also at)

PostProc.cmd with script as-is (to allow you to confirm directory delete)
START C:\Python25\python.exe aftersab.py %1

PostProc.cmd after modified to not require a prompt to be answered (and moving goes to parent directory).
(instead of deleting, I had the remaining folder of files to ~Removed path.)
C:\Python25\python.exe aftersab.py %1

The TV section never seemed to be triggered, then I realized the != should be == under TV, and != for movies.

Here's the changes in (movie section part of) script (including the changes where directory delete occurs):
change the != to == for TV section above where this goes.

    elif thefilename != thefilename.rsplit('_-_')[0]: ## Movie Handler
        for movingthese in movethesefiles:
            print 'New Name: ' + thedir.replace(thefilename, '') + movingthese
            os.rename(thedir + movingthese, thedir.replace(thefilename, '') + movingthese) ## Move to Parent Dir
            _mkdir(thedir.replace(thefilename, '~Removed')) ## Create Dir for Removed
            os.rename(thedir, thedir.replace(thefilename, '~Removed') + thefilename)

The same style of code can be used under TV, which if you want to avoid confirmations (see START command under PostProc.cmd above), use the ~Removed code there too.

        _mkdir(thedir.replace(thefilename, '~Removed')) ## Create Dir for Removed
        os.rename(thedir, thedir.replace(thefilename, '~Removed') + thefilename)


I found that python doesn't like tab for indentation...must use spaces!
The glitch I found was when a subtitle file was found it moved it instead of the video (not sure how to fix that yet).
Although you can use registry to make the on-demand method work too, I wanted it automatic.

For making TV episodes go to parent dir without using the ShowTitle folder, comment the lines that mkdir, and os.rename and use this line instead
        os.rename(thedir + newfilename + '.' + filetype[0], thedir.replace(thefilename, '') + newfilename + '.' + filetype[0]) ## Move file into Parent Dir
