Our songs, TV shows, and movies are a mess, corrupted by strange names, incomplete artwork, no descriptions or subtitles, and the cruft that comes from obtaining media from multiple sources.Is there a way to cleanup and organize it all? You just need a bot. A FileBot.
Automatically Automizing Media
FileBot is free and cross platform. It’s a Mac utility which helps you clean up your media– songs, TV shows, movies, and associated artwork and descriptions.
FileBot makes it easy to rename and organize hundreds or thousands of media files quickly and easily.
It goes online to fetch information from TV shows, movies, and music using a variety of online media databases (TheTVDB, AniDB, IMDb, TheMovieDB, OpenSubtitles, TVRage and more).
FileBot is smart enough to scan through your media collection and auto-detect what’s needed. That makes it indispensable when it comes to adding accurate names to songs, movies, and TV shows.
Got TV shows or movies that also need subtitles? FileBot grabs exact subtitles online from OpenSubtitles.
Digging into your songs, TV shows, and movies can be tedious work, but FileBot makes it more pleasurable because you’re actually making progress in organizing and updating media.
The interface is boring, utilitarian, but it works.
FileBot does the deeds through drag and drop, or if you’re particularly geeky, there’s an added command-line functionality that lets you do what the app does, run the automated scripts, but from the keyboard.
While the retrieval of media file information is mostly automatic, FileBot lets you manage exactly how you’ll rename files to match your organizing system.
Not bad for free.
