What is this anime?
A video and subtitle search tool inspired by anime.
As those tools were never intended to be released maybe installing can be a bit hard.
- install Node, FFmpeg and (optional) SQLite, keep those available in PATH
git clone https://github.com/qgustavor/what-is-this-anime.git
- edit config.js
node processto index files in your computer
node find-image [image path]to find a image
If you think those steps are too hard I recommend using this website (not by me) which also allows searching anime by image, is simple to use and a lot faster than the scripts on this repository.
Video Indexer (process.js):
Populates the database with image hashes (based on dhash). Indexing can be automated by calling this script in cron, task scheduler or similar.
node process -l --alternative Uses alternative method -m --mysql Uses MySQL database -f --folder Folder to search for videos
Subtitle Indexer (subtitle-process.js):
Populates the database with subtitle lines. Only supports MySQL databases. Note that there isn't no "Subtitle Finder" script, but a simple SQL select can be used for that.
node subtitle-process -f --folder Folder to search for videos
Image Finder (find-image.js):
Finds an image in database.
node find-image [image-file] [threshold] -a --alternative Uses alternative method -m --mysql Uses MySQL database -s --simple Don't use thresholds, instead find exact results and exit -f --first Exits on first result --no-partial Don't try to find partial hashes
Output format (for alternative method):
First line: image info >> 12345678 12345678 12345678 <- target hash The first two are the dhash, the third is the color information Subsequent lines: result info: >> 12345678 2 Sintel.mkv >> 12345678 3 Big Buck Bunny.mkv The first number is the color information, then the hamming distance, then the file name.
The output format for the old (and still default, to not break compatibility) method is almost the same, but without color information for the image and results.
You can compare color information between image and results by entering color values in
this tool (use 0x prefix, as those numbers
are encoded in hexadecimal; example: if the script returns
12345678 then use
Video to image comparer (compare-mode.js):
Finds an image in a specific video.
node compare-mode [video-file] [image-file] -a --alternative Uses alternative method
What the "alternative" method is:
The alternative method, beside the bad naming, is an improved method of indexing. It uses the concatenation of the dhash, to store shape information, and four colors from the image encoded in 8bit, for color information.
There are database dumps for MySQL (images and subtitles) and SQLite (images, old schema)
