Movie File Merger supports the selective combination/maintenance of video collections, movies, series, or documentaries. It can be used for other types of collections, but it is optimized for videos. The Lists tab is the main tab to combine video collections. Use it to move items around in the different lists, sort your collection, or rip the collection of a friend.
Select which videos are copied or moved. Only videos in the Wish list are considered. To select videos or movies from your friend's collection you just need his or her list. You can select them at home and once finished go to your friend and start copying.
Lists are small for distribution over the internet. Once you have scanned your collection, you can send it to your friend, who can select what to copy offline.
Videos in the Existing and Garbage lists are ignored. That way you don't have to worry about copying the same crappy movies again and again.
Select movies according to predefined genre lists from the internet, for example, IMDb. Just drop the list in the Wish list and only videos from that genre are copied. If you want to ignore a complete category, then drop it in the Garbage list.
Select videos according to resolution or other details such as media information; for example, horizontal resolution is greater than 1000 pixels. Filters are Regular Expressions and really flexible.
Search for movies or series information on the internet, like on TheTVDb. Drop any list entry on the Search for information drop area.
Search for torrents on the web. Select the sites, which should be searched, and drop any list entry on the Download drop area.
List detailed media information with MediaInfo. Any videos in the Existing list are scanned with the relevant media information.
View video media information in the pop-ups when hovering over a list entry. Any videos in the Existing list are scanned with the relevant media information. Basic information is shown in the screen tip when hovering over the list entry.
Play videos in the Import list with your default player. Drop any video existing on connected hard disks on the Play drop area.
Click on Just Rip It... to get all videos in the Import folder. Videos in the Existing and Garbage lists are not touched.
Click on Just Scan It... to scan all videos in all top level folders on all hard disks connected to the computer. The top level folders have to contain the collection name so that videos in that folder are put in the according collection.
Movie File Merger makes the maintenance of your collections easier. It points out bad names, supports moving and sorting into collection types. The Maintenance tab is used to cleanup your newly acquired videos and add-on files or to cleanup your collection in general. It is used in conjunction with the Windows Explorer or FileBot, but basically, you can use it with any program, which accepts file drops.
Get rid of garbage files in your collections. Move irrelevant files into the Windows Recycle Bin.
Suck relevant files out of download folders. Irrelevant files can be sucked into the recycle bin or just ignored. No need for the tiresome clicking until your fingers fall off.
Drop movies or series with bad names into FileBot to rename them.
Differentiate automatically between documentaries, series, and movies. Good and bad names are highlights and nonrelated files identified.
Move movies or series with good names in other folders. Move nonrelated files in the Windows Recycle Bin.
Check if all files in your collection have a good name. Bad names, which are not following the naming conventions are pointed out. They can be dropped into FileBot, or any other program, which is specialized in renaming files.
Movie File Merger helps you to remember your collections. As your collection grows it'll be impossible to remember everything.
Movie File Merger remembers all the videos you have. You'll never copy the same movie again and again.
Movie File Merger remembers all the video you don't want to have. You'll not copy the same crappy movies with a good title again and again.
Movie File Merger is designed so that your collection information can be easily updated once out of date. Just Scan it takes a while if there are many new entries, but runs basically in the background.
Movie Filer Merger is portable so that you can run it from anywhere, on any hard disk or memory stick, or even your phone is you use it as such.
The videos are split into categories, which are easier to handled and remember. The Miscellaneous category can be used to remember temporarily things.
Lists can be archived to keep a history of your collection over time. To get a list of all the movies ever owned, they can be combined in a single large list.
Movie File Merger is designed so that it is quite flexible. How and for what to use it depends basically on you. That means you'll have to use it for some time to figure out which way is best.
Considering the size of video files, it is not practical to have your collections double. It's a good idea to backup your video collections on hard disks of others. That way they can watch your videos and you save space.
Social gathering when visiting your friend. If you connect your two hard disks, transfer rates are best. That's also a good opportunity to have a beer or two.
Save internet bandwidth, because large data quantities are moved over USB or similar. Independent how fast your internet connection is, you are much faster when using Movie File Merger.
Faster than backing up in the cloud. Transferring data over USB 3.0 is around 150 MB/s. When used to rip collections without too much thinking, that means that you'll get around 300 GB per hour. You can sort out the details later.
Your friends are checking the quality of movies before you get them. Bad stuff will be cut off at the roots and deleted before you can get it.
The other are searching the internet for good downloads for you, what is actually quite a lot of work. If you don't like something it can all the time be added to the Garbage list and deleted.
