Tidy up your movie collection
For anyone with a large movie collection who craves file organization, movietidy is a nodejs project that helps you keep your movies... tidy.
This project is early in dev and a WIP. Please file issues!
Point movietidy at your movie directory and it will do the following (any file deletion requires your approval):
Young Frankenstein (1974).mkv)
If starting from scratch, it is easiest to install the Apple Command Line Tools. Download the binary for your version of OSX here: Apple Developer Downloads
Install Node and NPM on OSX (tested on 10.9). NodeJS is the scripting language used for these tools and must be installed on your system. We also need ffmpeg for file metadata probing. The quickest way to do this is via brew. To install brew, then node, and lastly ffmpeg:
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL )"brew install nodebrew install ffmpeg
sudo npm install -g movietidy
Point movietidy at the movie directory you would like to process with
$ movietidy --path ~/Movies/
To look for and clean up files under a specific file size, simply add the
--size option (in megabytes):
$ movietidy --path ~/Movies/ --size 500
By default movietidy ignores subtitle files. For the option to delete them, simply add the
$ movietidy --path ~/Movies/ --subdel
