Comment(by anonymous):

 You do not have to _reencode_ your videos to put them into a matroska
 container. Remuxing is enough, and given that you already have the
 information in a computer readable format and that your video files are
 sane, this can easily be automated. Let's say you have 1000 videos in an
 avi container and 1000 imdb files with the corresponding metadata. All you
 need then is to write a script that takes your metadata and puts it into a
 valid matroska xml tag file (it has specified tags for almost all the info
 on imdb like title, actors/characters, director, year, summary, synopsis
 etc.), and use mkvmerge to mux it with the avi into a matroska container.
 If you also have subtitles and/ or movie poster(s) and/or additional audio
 tracks, you can add them as well. Besides having just one file containing
 all kind of information, the mkv container is also smaller then avi (less
 overhead), which would be noticable with 1000 files...
