Removing Special Character From Sort

Hi guys :). Thank you so much for making Emby! It is a wonderful software!

My question is about the sorting functionality. I realize that Emby has a feature to remove words from the beginning of the title so it does not affect sort.

  <SortRemoveWords>
    <string>the</string>
    <string>a</string>
    <string>an</string>
  </SortRemoveWords>

However what I need to do is NOT to words but to remove character. Specifically the character [ and - that I used in some of my videos. 

I tried adding them to SortRemoveWords but it didn't work. I suspect because the character "[" and "-" is not standalone (hence it is not a word).

Can anyone help? Thank you!

Why don't you batch-rename files themselves with some bulk-renaming tool?

I can but I want to keep the file name if possible. Wondering whether there is a functionality for here already.

Hi, there is currently no way to do that.
