Use MCEBuddy to Rename WTV files

Dec 20, 2015 at 2:53 PM
I would like to use MCEBuddy to automatically rename WTV files. I don't need it to create a new file. I just want it to rename an existing file. I like using the custom file renaming feature to rename WTV files using metadata in those files.

I'm currently trying to do this using the WTV Unprocessed profile and I've clicked the "Rename and sort files only," checkbox. However, this creates a duplicate file. My system bogs down a bunch while it is creating this duplicate file and it takes a while to do so. I believe this is mostly due to the input/output bottleneck on my 2TB Western Digital Green drive.

Yes as a safety measure MCEBuddy always creates a new file and leaves the original intact.

In Conversion Task -> Expert Settings there is an option, Skip copying original file, which will end up working on the original file without creating a copy and is your answer.

I'm not seeing that option.

I'm using version 2.3 Release 13. Does it exist in that version? If so, would you please be so kind as to include a screenshot?

No, it's on the newer builds.
