Auto File Renaming


Recommended Posts

Hi, I've fairly recently stopped using meta</browser> for my metadata fetching purposes, and started using MBServer for everything. One feature, however, that I do miss from metabrowser is the auto-renaming feature.


I suppose I'm a little OCD when it comes to how tidy my collection is, so I liked the fact that I could just add something to my collection, (i.e. a television episode) and it would automatically be given a nice, tidy file name.


Example: "Breaking Bad  S03E02 - Caballo Sin Nombre (2010).mkv" looks much nicer than: "Breaking.Bad.S05E15.720p.HDTV.x264.mkv".

Same goes for movies, where something like: "man.of.steel.2013.1080p.bluray.x264.mkv" really sticks out to me, and if it could look more like: "Dracula  (1992) - [MKV].mkv" my OCD would feel better haha.


Real-time folder monitoring was a nice touch as well...


Just putting it out there!


Thanks for the great service,




PS. I just made up these file names for example purposes...

Since installing http://www.filebot.net/ I personally not experiencing disadvantages with renaming. For MB, I guess, exists much more important tasks in roadmap autotrenaming. May be better post FR in plugins section, in hope recruiting Dev for it?
