Stop podcast download renaming...

Post by EricBJ »

Hi... I'm a brand new MonkeyMedia user and so far, I'm using MonkeyMedia for podcasts.

I need to stop MonkeyMedia from renaming the files when they are downloaded.

Could someone tell me how to do this?

Thanks in advance,
Eric

Options > Podcasts

At "Download podcasts to:" change the filename to <Filename>

Wonderful...

It works perfectly now.

I knew it had to be something easy but I just couldn't get my head around it.

Thank You,
Eric

Shows that you are the "dimwit" here.

I did this and now i have "-Filename-(1)", "-Filename-(2)", "-Filename-(3)", "-Filename-(4)", "-Filename-(5)". What did i do wrong?

This is the entry: C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Documents\Music\Podcasts\<Album>\<Filename>

I need to leave the original filename intact because that's the only field where the date is, the title is always identical.

I just tried <Filename> in MediaMonkey 4 and it works as expected. So I don't know if it has been fixed, but in MM4 it works.

It sounds to me like you need to check the box "User friendly masks" at Options > General

It's already checked.

Edit: Found the problem, the localization changed the name of the tags too, so <Filename> was actually <Nome file>.
