I had a collection too large to handle manually and wrote a small application that I want to share with you. I can guarantee that no viruses or other harmful content are enclosed only if you download from the link given in this message.
For getting media flags the software uses mediainfo.dll and the template AeonStar since it has necessary flags and configuration installed. Find AeonStar here: http://tvixie.com/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=1006
Or you may make some other template compatible, by using the option in the Asistant once for a target template. Then copy all subfolders of AeonStar in your PC to the subfolder of the target template. Now you will have to correct or add images in your target template by Template Editor. If they do not exist in the target folder, add 3 image elements with source="Base64String" and sourcebase64=%MEDIAFORMAT%, sourcebase64=%SOUNDFORMAT%, sourcebase64=%RESOLUTION% and an image element for Certification with source file= "%PATH%\certifications\%CERTIFICATION%.png" Put your 0.png 6.png 12.png 16.png 18.png files under certifications folder.
For other functions i.e: cleaning, getting runtimes, copying thumbnails, importing, listing and exporting you do not need a compatible template.
If you are getting the runtimes while using another template that has different audio and video codes, do not forget to check "Keep existing" in settings to keep previously filled audio and video codes.
Please report any bugs here.

Thanks to coolstream for the idea of using country preferences.

-corrected flag error with divx files
-added option to make other templates compatible with TViXiE Assistant. This only adds and changes name tags and image paths in the template. Makes a backup at first run.

Notes: TViXiE libraries and providers are not distributed with this software. So installation folder must be exactly the same as TViXiE installation folder to get missing data from web.
