A new Windows addin called MediaFile that is promising to organise your movie and TV series. The application helps organise your collection by enabling you to automate the creation of the metadata and move the files around the file system. Currently there is a free version with a paid version coming soon that supports music videos and compatibility with MediaBrowser and XMBC.

Free version of MediaFile has some limited features. However let me highlight some of them. Once you load selected folder files, you can filter them out by extension or by name. After you move them to Queue, you can rename selected files. If your files are located on different drives, simply select new source folder and add files to existing Queue.

By default, movies will be placed in their individual folders. However, if you want to copy or move all items in Queue to a single folder select option “Create Folder” and give some name. In addition you can edit Year information. That includes, deleting, adding or changing it.

For TV Series, you can set Series Name, Season Number and Episode Number starting sequence number. You may leave Episodes name alone, or you can give all episodes the same name including two different widely used type of counters.

Upcoming paid version of MediaFile will provide support for Music Videos and ability to create and edit xml files compatible with MediaBrowser and XBMC. You will able to batch update single or multiple fields in xml files. In addition, you will be able convert between mymovies.xml and nfo files.

MediaFile will allow you to include in your media library files like home videos, movies made up of multiple parts. Perfect example will be selection of songs in Bollywood Movie or set of cartoons in one folder.

If anyone tries this I would be interested to hear how you get on with it
