Feature Request: Picking up known Actors or Tags from filenames

Hello.

It would be very nice if while importing new files Videonizer would scan the filename and recognize Actors and Tags that already are in the database.
For example if I add a file named :"The Matrix (1999) [Keanu Reeves Carrie-Anne Moss] {Action,Sci-Fi}.mp4" and the actors Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss are already in the database the video would automatically be tagged with them.

If this feature is implemented it would be also nice to be able to add Actors and Tags to the db in bulk with a long list separated by commas for example: "Keanu Reeves,Julian Arahanga,Marcus Chong,Gloria Foster...". So later when a video with one of them in the filename would be added it would automatically tag them.

Thanks!

This feature is working great and saves tons of time but in cases with actors with only one name it looks like it will auto-tag other files where an actor has that shared common name. (Bob shows up for Bob Jones, Bob Smith, Bob etc.)

It looks like it also hits on substrings like Sage/message.

I'm not sure exactly how you could best deal with that except for maybe now offering a toggle as to whether it auto-fills on single word names ..? Or a dialog similar to when there are duplicate files where 'conflicts' could be worked out ..?

As always, keep up the great work ..!

(quick edit: As a workaround for now I've gone in and updated single name actors to be something like: Bob NoLastName)
