GuessIt

Latest Version LGPLv3 License Build Status Coveralls HuBoard

GuessIt is a python library that extracts as much information as possible from a video filename.

It has a very powerful matcher that allows to guess properties from a video using its filename only. This matcher works with both movies and tv shows episodes.

For example, GuessIt can do the following:

$ guessit "Treme.1x03.Right.Place,.Wrong.Time.HDTV.XviD-NoTV.avi"
For: Treme.1x03.Right.Place,.Wrong.Time.HDTV.XviD-NoTV.avi
GuessIt found: {
    "title": "Treme",
    "season": 1,
    "episode": 3,
    "episode_title": "Right Place, Wrong Time",
    "format": "HDTV",
    "video_codec": "XviD",
    "release_group": "NoTV",
    "container": "avi",
    "mimetype": "video/x-msvideo",
    "type": "episode"
}

More information are available at ReadTheDocs.

Migration note

GuessIt 2 has been rewriten from scratch. GuessIt is now a release name parser only, and support for additional features like hashes computations has been dropped.

To migrate from guessit 0.x or 1.x, please read migration.rst.

Install

Installing GuessIt is simple with pip:

$ pip install guessit

You can also install GuessIt from sources

Usage

GuessIt can be used from command line:

$ guessit
usage: guessit [-h] [-t TYPE] [-n] [-Y] [-D] [-L ALLOWED_LANGUAGES]
               [-C ALLOWED_COUNTRIES] [-E] [-T EXPECTED_TITLE]
               [-G EXPECTED_GROUP] [-f INPUT_FILE] [-v] [-P SHOW_PROPERTY]
               [-a] [-j] [-y] [-p] [-V] [--version]
               [filename [filename ...]]

positional arguments:
  filename              Filename or release name to guess

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit

Naming:
  -t TYPE, --type TYPE  The suggested file type: movie, episode. If undefined,
                        type will be guessed.
  -n, --name-only       Parse files as name only, considering "/" and "\" like
                        other separators.
  -Y, --date-year-first
                        If short date is found, consider the first digits as
                        the year.
  -D, --date-day-first  If short date is found, consider the second digits as
                        the day.
  -L ALLOWED_LANGUAGES, --allowed-languages ALLOWED_LANGUAGES

MatchesDict([('title', 'Treme'), ('season', 1), ('episode', 3), ('episode_title', 'Right Place, Wrong Time'), ('format', 'HDTV'), ('video_codec', 'XviD'), ('release_group', 'NoTV'), ('container', 'avi'), ('mimetype', 'video/x-msvideo'), ('type', 'episode')])

MatchesDict is a dict that keeps matches ordering.
