View Full Version : File Renameing

I am currently going through each video and adding its artwork and correcting the video title

Is tere and way that i can have it update the actual file name?

Some of my file names are so obscure and now it is going to be so difficult to connect what file is what being that the mezzmo will have one name and the actual video has a different name

You could rename the file in Windows and then maintain your library, but that will treat the renamed file as a new one (and will delete the previous one, with the added artwork/title, since it won't find it on disk anymore).

The other way is to modify the database directly, but you need to be careful not to change anything else :)

how do i change the database??

I can only recommend changing the database directly if you're comfortable with using database browsing tools ;) If so, then it's a simple SQLite database and can be changed directly using SQLite Browser, for example (http://sqlitebrowser.sourceforge.net/).

Yes, we'll consider adding an option to allow you to rename the file on disk from within Mezzmo - that would update the database automatically then.

You need to edit the Mezzmo.db file.
