What do you think about adding the ability for therenamer to read from tag in the file, to grab information about the file.
It would be helpful for TV shows recorded with windows media center. When media center creates a recorded file, it names it as (title of the show_the channel call sine it was recorded on_ the date. So therenamer knows what the TV show's name is but has no idea what episode the show it is. But media center, does put tags in to the recorded file like episode name, that would tell therenamer what show it is.

It would also be cool to add tag information as well to a file.

here is a file name example
showname_channel_year_month_date_hh_mm_ss.wtv
hh_mm_ss is in military time.
channel ex - G4HD or FXHD or KMBCDT

The guy is hoping to read tags if possible though because recorded shows always have the
Title
Episode name
Broadcast date

obviously reading tags is about the only option because the file name is nearly useless due to the date/time info only being useful if the show records new episodes on the right day. Granted, most are setup this way so if the renamer could use those two bits of info (show name and date) to rename/move that would cover MOST recordings and leave much less manual work. Love the app!
