Recently bought one of these players. Quite impressed so far. It was a toss up between this and the AC Ryan Plaoy On but the WD shop was closer, product has a better warranty and the user intefrace seems OK now (which seemed to be a problem before).
Anyway, all that aside, just wondering if there are any suggestions with regard to file naming for movies etc. I’m contemplating either just the name and year or a longer title including:
Name, year, format, audio etc.
If choosing the latter, does it need to be in a specific format (e.g. punctuation wise)? I ask because I’ve borrowed a friend’s external HDD and with all his movies every word is separated by a full stop (period). Is this because the WD Hub needs that? Or maybe it’s how he downloaded them?? A site convention maybe?? So (and this is just a random example), could a file name be:
Kingdom of Heaven 2007 Blue Ray Dolby Digital
or something like
Kingdom of Heaven _2007_Blue Ray_Dolby Digital (which I think might look / work better)
In any event I suspect some form of rename from the file download / copy (e.g. from legit DVD) would need to be renamed to keep some form of standard and commonality to avoid a messy library.
Finally, where, if you want to do it, do you assign the thumbnails and / or any film info / metadata. I’ve seen the suggested use of the following folders so assume that’s where you’d do it. Just need to work out how?
Any help appreciated.
