Hi helpful and knowledgeable people of DC.
I have a processing problem with the satellite TV that I record here for languages at the university of southampton and it is mostly due to file names.
I have 4 pieces of software
Exterity IPTV http://www.exterity....products_avedia.html
Video Redo http://www.videoredo.com/
Sorenson Squeeze http://www.sorensonm...ducts/?pageID=1#ppc2
Flash Media Server http://www.adobe.com...ts/flashmediaserver/
I'm trying to make it so I don't have to re-encode 4-8 tv news recordings each day and make things automatic.
All these processes can be made automatic with the use of scheduled tasks and batch files but the names are a problem
Exterity outputs scheduled files as namechannel day month year
Video redo outputs files as input
Sorenson outputs files as input
Nearly all of this is fine except for the date. I would need to rename the file namechannel day month year
.mpg into 'namechannel.mpg'. Once that is done I can just use the rename command.One line summary
So is there a program that can rename files that either works by 'rename namechannel*.mpg to namechannel.mpg' or works by saying 'rename namechannel $todaysDay $todaysMonth $todaysYear'.
Many thanks for the help that anyone can give.
