My movies are arranged by genre folder then movie file:
Movies > Action > Iron Man.avi
XBMC looks to the folder for the name of the file which obviously screws everything up for me. So, I guess I have two options:
1. Put every movie in its own folder (time consuming), or
2. Change where the scrapers look for the information.
Is there a way to automatically batch the folder process? Or is there a way to make XBMC scrapers look for the info from the file name instead of the folder name?
Thanks a lot

No. Xbmc only uses the folder name for lookups if you tell it to. It's an option when you set content. "Use folder name for lookup" or the like. Otherwise, it uses a "cleaned up" version of the filename. And depending on where you've set content, you probably need to enable "Recursive".
