Movie Renaming

meta<browser/> has the ability automatically rename your movie files and folders based on a user defined pattern.

Constructs that can be used in a Renaming pattern string:

Meaning              Pattern        Result
--------------------------------------------------
Local Title          %lt            Local Title
                     %l.t           Local.Title
                     %l_t           Local_Title

Original Title       %ot            Original Title
                     %o.t           Original.Title
                     %o_t           Original_Title

Sort Title           %st            Sort Title
                     %s.t           Sort.Title
                     %s_t           Sort_Title

Production Year      %py            2005

Comment              %cmt           1080p
