Win Naming Conventions/Folder Structures
#1
Hi,

Can someone recommend a program to bulk rename my Library Artwork. Also can anyone tell me the exact naming conventions/folder structures for Movies/TV Shows/Music. I have not used Kodi for ages and can't seem to find a definitive wiki guide to all the conventions/folder structures...

My movies are all in separate folders:

Film Archive/2001.folder, A Space Odyssey (1968) [1080p].folder
2001, A Space Odyssey (1968) [1080p].mkv

Hey Karellen, Think we spoke some time ago, hope you're keeping well mate. Which link is it in reference to bulk renaming artwork?

Yep, keeping well thanks.

The links are in reference to your question on correct folder structure and Artwork names. The Artwork link has images that will explain proper layout and file naming. Some of you artwork names are incorrect, so best to compare it with the artwork pages.

Others will have to recommend a renamer as I never use any.

The link in Karellen's signature that says "Artwork"...

TBF, I can't see anything about naming conventions on that page though.

According to this: Movie_artwork (wiki) it's "filename-arttype.ext"

Code:

For movies see Movie_artwork (wiki) section 2 on local
For music see Music_artwork (wiki)
These pages are both reached via Artwork (wiki) the page that @Karellen gave
