    Can anyone recommend a program to batch rename files?
    I can recommend that you are in the wrong section to be talking about this shit.

    It is the long standing proud tradition of The Lounge to only discuss total wank. I may not make the rules but as chavis is my witness, I'm goddamn sure going to enforce them. If you don't like it then fuck the fucking fuck off. That goes double for you, anon.

    Well, in this case I think I do save time in the long-run. It took me about five minutes to figure out what the best renaming option/method was and how to set up the renaming rule. Going forward it will be a 10-second thing.

    The problem is not the downloading/renaming thing. The problem is that Plex seems to have changed a process when pulling in metadata for your media. The official naming convention for TV shows was always S01E01, S01E02, etc. but it turned out that they also supported naming conventions like 101, 102, etc. Well, that seems to have gone the way of the dodo last weekend; I updated my Plex server software and all of a sudden file 101 does not show up as "Episode 1" in Plex but rather as "Episode 101". Of course there usually is no episode 101, so Plex can't match the episode and does not pull in any metadata for that episode.

    Existing files and matches are not affected, but every time you make a change to a folder, like adding files or replacing files, it scans the whole folder and rematches it (or tries to). So yesterday I replaced season 1 of MacGyver with the new remastered version, and even though it was already in my Plex library, it defaulted to "episode 101", etc again. Same way with Tehran -- the first four episodes were in my library, but because just added the latest two episodes the matadata for all six got screwed up. So this renaming tool will be a lot faster and convenient than manually changing all file names to the S01E01 format.

    Some people would argue that this entire subject is total wank.

    Doesn't matter what the forum says. Doesn't matter what the anons or the Jewish types say. Doesn't matter if the whole site decides that something wrong is something right.


    This section was founded on one principle above all else: The requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the Jewish types and the anons and the whole forum tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the site -- "No, YOU move.”

    PS This only applies to me. You on the other hand need to do as told.

    There's no way you haven't used Norton Commander, and this is basically the 4K Blu-Ray Remastered Edition of it. Same interface, same shortcuts, lots of extra features and plugin support.

    I thought Plex was not complicated

    Anon: Can you add more content with Total Commander to make it look pretty, and add info on the shows and stuff?? Or is it just a sorter ??
    File descriptions are supported, and I'm sure it has a plugin for the other stuff... it has a plugin for nearly everything, actually. However, that's not the program's defining feature, it's a file manager first and foremost. I've been using it since before it was renamed and am very pleased with it.

    Heh. 30 years later I think I am entitled to some general rustiness...

    Cripes. Norton Commander was right around the same time as QEMM, right?

    Yes, although it would make more sense to compare it against XTree Gold

    Do you rename every file to be the same in the season?? No matter how the NZB poster has it??

    I assume the Metadata is picked up by it's file name right?? So if they are all the same and you are just changing the Season or Episode number?? Plex doesn't recognize that?? And able to pull down all the info etc?? I understand your problem how it is named but is it just the number or other issues Plex has a conflict with??

    Again i am asking Cabby because i don't use Plex remember, with UMS it automatically puts everything in alphabetic and numeric order, with none of the fancy shit right, if i want to manually add gif's, i can but i don't bother....

    The same what happens if a new TV show has the same name as an older one?? Do you manually have to choose what it adds?? Does Plex pick up that you add what year it comes out?? I guess you could ask the same for Movie remakes with the same name as well??

    Even in some NZB sites the picture (gif or whatever it is called), and the description of the actual movie or tv show , is not always right either??
