Keeping an archive of music, movies, TV series etc, requires you to properly name them in order to be able to easily find them when needed. Having a wrong or incomplete name for a file means that it will be very hard for you to look for it, and it might take a long time. The metadata information can be used for finding a file, but that is not always available. However, if there is a large database of music, movies or TV series stored in your computer, renaming each and every one of them manually can be a tedious task. Previously, we have covered a lot of applications that allow you to quickly rename media files and add correct names in their titles. Today, we have an application called Movie Renamer that enables you to automatically rectify the names of your media files. It not only renames the file, but also adds metadata information to them, which is downloaded from both the English IMDb and French IMDb websites. Moreover, you can automatically get thumbnails, as well as fanarts, and view list of actors in the movie. Keep reading to find out more about Movie Renamer.
