Also it helps me to download the correct synced subtitle file if needed

When using VLC you will be able to download subtitels without knowing all those details, when the
correct sub is available it will be there ! Maybe a few clicks and you'll find the correct one and, it
will be stored next to the movie.

Also i prefer to keep the torrent info in the file name so that I can always know the source of the file and the quality of the movie.

Opton : 'Pimpernel' Smith (1941) [720p.BluRay.x264-(YTS.AG)].mp4
When using the correct filename you will still be able to store all details !

I'm not trying to convince you to do it the way i like it, i think maybe you do
not know all possible options ?



As you can see in the screenshot, every srt file have some extra information such as the source or the quality of the file. So if i rename my file as "moviename.mp4" then i wont be knowing which srt file is best synced with the movie file.

So your screenshot speaks it all.

Anyways thanks for the information. I dont use vlc but I prefer Gom which have similar option for subtitles. :) :)

is there any documentation or Help file consisting of all the shortcut keys, features, different options of coollector?

I need to check my code, but the only other hidden feature that comes to my mind is control + P to enable/disable the automatic predictions. Maybe I will add an "advanced" tab to the settings and regroup those hidden features, I haven't decided yet.

Yes that would be great because I didn't knew that such option exist in Collector to enable/disable prediction.

I have a large movie collection and in the past I used to have some of my movies in the same style as yours, folder named correctly and inside, the mp4 or whatever file type plus its subtitle, etc.

Now I rather have everything on .mkv, simpler, cleaner and more elegant. I recommend you MKVToolNix, to create .mkv as a container for your movies. This way you have a single file that contains the movie, audio tracks, subtitle tracks, chapters... very convenient and the process is very easy and fast. And because .mkv is just a container, you don't need to re-encode the movie file, so no loose in quality.

As for renaming files, I have done it on more than 2,000 movies, by hand, one at a time and yes, it takes quite a lot of time but it is worth it.

This hidden feature is now replaced by an advanced setting ;)

The new version 4.11.4 has an advanced setting for that. ;)

I have a rather old PC (around 5-6 years) with an i7 3770 and keep my movies on mechanical drives 8 to 10TBs so not as fast as an SSD. The average time to create a new mkv from avi (never tried video_ts) for a 10BG movie is 1 minute or less. Since there's nothing or almost nothing to re-encode, the CPU doesn't matter much. Your SSD will help making this process faster for sure, even on a laptop.

Let me know if you need any help with this and good luck!

Where do you find .avi movies from about 10Gb ? The biggest .avi i have is maybe 4Gb.
Anyway, i installed the program and made a containerfile out of an .mkv and added the
.srt subtitle file.

When i use the SSD i have to move the movie to laptop first, this takes time.

Creating the container file over the network on the NAS (4Tb mechanical drives), 5Gb
Matroska and 1 subtitle added, took about 7 minutes. When copiing the files to SSD first
it takes 2 minutes excluding the copie time :-(

So, i'll leave the subs next to the movies, i won't live long enough to create containers
of all my movies :-)

Thnx for offering your help
