I have a problem: before knowing Videonizer I had my movies collection in excel. Exporting it to csv or xml is easy and includes the fullpath, the tags (in excel were categories), the main actors and the urls for more info. However currently I think I cannot import that kind of list into Videonizer, so I don't know how to add the videos and associate its tags not manually.
My idea would be to have a button, additional to current "Add video files" and "Add video folders", something like "Add video from list", that allows to import a xml like this (self explained):
Code: Select all
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <list> <movie fullpath="D\movies\the_birds.mp4"> <tags> <tag name="Hitchcock's movies" /> <tag name="Universal Pictures" /> </tags> <actors> <actor name="Rod Taylor" /> <actor name="Tippi Hedren" /> </actors> <sites> <site name="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Birds_(film)" /> <site name="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Birds_(film)#/media/File:The_Birds_original_poster.jpg" /> </sites> </movie> </list>
- If the movie already exists, the process will merge the new tags, actors and sites.
- If any of the tags, actors or sites for a movie not exist, movie is skipped or maybe (more complex to implement) the process could create it and merge to the existing ones.
