Find Movie Titles With Help from Folder Name - peterno3 - 2012-11-23

I was wondering, is there any way for XBMC to use the folder name that a movie is in to help it find the movie title? For example, I currently have all the Harry Potter movies in a folder, named "Harry Potter". The individual files have only the sub-title (e.g. The Sorcerer's Stone). The scrubbers apparently only search using the file name, so some of the movies are misnamed. Is there any way to set the folder name to help? Thanks

You can either use the folder name(select "use foldername for lookups" in the movies source) or the filename. Both has been supported for a long time now. What you suggest is a mixture.
