Podcasts: Keep MM from renaming file?

Post by CharlieSummers » Thu Oct 03, 2019 5:53 pm

Is there any way to suppress MediaMonkey renaming a downloaded podcast file with the Title ID3 tag? I'd like it to leave the filename as-downloaded and unchanged if possible, but I can't find a setting to do this.

Tools > Options > Downloads/Podcast you can setup the filename.

Wait...so the path sets up the filename? So if I simply remove the trailing "<title>" it will leave the filename alone? Or do I have to explicitly use a <filename> macro?

I assume <Filename>, but you'll have to try.

(*shrug*) I cannot seem to stop it from downloading episodes of a podcast I deleted, so I can't properly test changing the path entries. (Edit: At least until I have the time to run an SQLite editor to remove all of the download entries for the one podcast I added and then removed.)

Suspect using MM for a podcast client only is not going to work, so moving on.
