Sincere apologies if this has been asked before (did a search and couldn't believe nothing came up), but...

 

Would it be possible to expand the already extensive and awesome (!) server service to also arrange and rename media files within each library?

 

The meta fetching is very effective and accurate, but I still use both the YAMMM service (for movies, Blu-Rays and DVDs) and MediaScout (TV Series) tools to appropriately name, rearrange, catalogue and add the physical images and XML data to my collections (Movies, TV Series, Comedy, Documentories, etc.).

 

MediaScout has been discontinued (as far as is visible), but it was an excellent tool - allowing custom naming (e.g. naming format by S0xE0x / SxE depending on choice) and rearrangement of files within each seriies.

 

YAMMM ditto for movies.

 

 

The built-in server tools already fetch all the necessary data (and, in many cases, more accurately), but (unless I've not spotted the option) it doesn't seem to rearrange and rename the physical files.

 

(Please tell me if I'm being stupid and have missed the option!!)

 

It'd be great if the physical files could be rearranged into series and season folders and renamed into a standard naming pattern - ideally chosen within the server config (and optional).

Hmmmm... hang-on - a mod might want to delete this request.... further fiddling within the auto-organise feature looks like I might need to make some changes my end, but might get it to work exactly as requested!!

 

(D'OH! Sorry, thought it was only for recorded tv)
