Podcast being renamed PODS(xx)

Post by JBDive » Sat Apr 10, 2010 10:38 pm

I have started using MM to pull my Podcast and have checked the option to edit tags based feed. I assume this is what is causing the filenames to be changed to PODS(xx) where xx is a number I think is based on the order the pod was downloaded. I like the formatting of the Tags so hate to change the option so is that what I have to do to get the file names to be the name of the show itself?

No, that option doesn't do anything to filenames. The filename structure is handled at tools > options > podcasts, "Download podcasts to"

I still don't see anything that will change MM from renaming the various Podcast to PODSxx. I get the directory structure of each pod in it's own directory based on where it come from but what's with the renaming?

ok so I deleted all the files from my MP# player (Sansa) and just had MM redownload the latest PODS and this time I have file structure and file names as it should be. Great, why I have no clue but if it works who cares.

Still wishing I had a better way to create Playlist. It's this multi stage process now using PLaylist Creator by oddgraviy.
