This is a Python utility to match movies and subtitles inside a directory, based on their names. It is specially useful for series with lots of subtitles.
The output is a shell script containing the right
$ python setup.py install --user
$ submatch -h usage: submatch [-h] [-l L] [-r] [-z] [-n] [-N] optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -l L, --limit L Change lower bound for matching ratio. Default is 0.6. Matches below that percentage are automatically excluded. -r, --reverse Reverse the logic of renaming. With this option, movies are renamed, not subtitles. -z, --zip Change the logic of matching. Zip the sorted list of movies and subtitles instead of match on names. This will not use -l/--limit option. -n, --numbers Change the logic of matching. Use numbers in names to perform the matching. This will not use -l/--limit option. -N, --no-ext Consider files with no extension as movies.
Suppose you have some movies and subtitles:
$ touch tata.avi titi.sub toto.avi toto.srt TUTU.AVI tutu.fr.srt
After installation, just run the tool in the folder:
$ submatch # # Unmatched subtitles: # [ ] ./titi.sub # # Unmatched movies: # [ ] ./tata.avi # # Matching results with method "NAMES": # * column 1 : Levenshtein distance between movie name and sub name # * column 2 : '✓' if movie name and sub name contain then same numbers # * column 3+ : [numbers] movie ... [numbers] sub (color based on numbers) # # 100.0% ✓ [ ] ./toto.avi [ ] ./toto.srt # 72.7% ✓ [ ] ./TUTU.AVI [ ] ./tutu.fr.srt # Actual moves proposed # Already good: "./toto.srt" mv "./tutu.fr.srt" "./TUTU.srt"
You can then actually perform the move like this:
$ submatch | sh
