rename with info from video files?

#1 Post by daaaaa » 19.11.2014, 04:40

would it be possible to extract data from video files (MP4) like framerate, dimensions in a rename action? that way i can easy see which of my files are 4K, which have higher frame rate, etc.

You can add special columns for these settings (Tools\Settings\View\Column profiles\Define columns\Add new column):

Don't understand what you're referring to when you speak about rename action, though.

thanks for your reply.
when you batch rename files it is possibe to add for instance exif data for JPG. but not for MP4 video (it is indeed available in columns). i wondered if this could be used as well.

so for instance a file could automatically be renamed from myfilename.MP4 to myfilename-1080-50.MP4 (like width 1080 and frame rate 50)

hope this makes clear what i mean.

Ah, yes, I understand now.
Currently only MP3 info and picture EXIF info are available for your purpose, true.
I'd like to see this option added for video files, too (@Marek: is it possible to integrate somehow mediainfo.dll library?), although I don't know any batch files renamer or files manager that currently support this option.

FC has only a basic renamer (which is ok).
You should use an advanced renamer like http://www.advancedrenamer.com/ or http://www.den4b.com/?x=products&product=renamer
