Understanding Squire’s file recognition

We don’t aim to give you some programming lessons or basic mathematics. We’ll try to not bore you with complex diagrams and how our algorithms works, we will postpone it for the day when Coca-cola share his secret recipe or Google distribute its famous PageRank ;-) .

File recognition

Squire recognizer (our algorithm system) analyzes all the files in your internal, external and shared disks. Using Squire Database it filters, recognizes and separates movies from the rest of video files. Everything is done without following a naming pattern or putting your files on certain places. You just need to sit and watch.

What Can I do to help Squire?

Of course in the entire world no one is perfect. Just like your mother or wife are happy when you lower the toilet seat, Squire will also thank you with better results if you follow a coherent way to name your files:

Keep it clean. Squire loves your file names to be concise and direct. It’s better to have a file named like Inception.mkv than Inception Subt [AC3 - DTS] (2010) by BobEsponja.mkv, although it will be probably recognized anyway.

File extension. Squire recognizes and plays the following files extensions: MOV, MKV, AVI, MP4, MPG, M4V.

On TV Shows, name along with season and episode number. Following our previous point, be concise with the name: Lost 1×05.mkv. Just in case you don’t have the entire name, season and episode number in your file name we are also supporting folder naming. Read more here

We’re getting better.

This is an amazingly complex and ambitious project, and believe us when we say we’re putting all our efforts and passion on it. We have a lot of stuff to improve and implement but slowly, with your help, we will make Squire much better than it is now.
