    Bulk Rename Utility

The most common way to fix library mistakes is to rename your files. Plex can recognize a variety of filenames to identify what movie or show a file is, but the closer you adhere to its preferred. FileBot is a universal tool for organizing your video content, downloading subtitles, and fetching artwork. It works not only with Plex but also with other HTPC apps, such as Kodi or Emby. FileBot plugin compares your files with TheMovieDB and TheTVDB, renaming, copying, or moving them the way you like. ReNamer has several filter options which configure how added items (files and folders) are treated. By default, folders are not added to the renaming list as items, instead, their contents are added to the renaming list. To rename the folders themselves, open filter settings and enable option 'Add folders as files'. Update your Kodi or Plex library. Setting up a fully automated media center – extract archives, organize tv shows and movies, download subtitles. Identify and rename music using AcoustID audio-fingerprints and MusicBrainz info. Extract files from zip, multi-volume rar and 7zip archives as well as ISO images. Today is the day.


For renaming (and to “fix up” tags for consistency if needed), I use MP3Tag. You can set up a custom renaming action using a template that matches Plex naming conventions. Although MP3Tag is mostly known for tagging music files, it also works with MP4 files, and is a kind of “Swiss army knife” of metadata editors.

Works best with Kodi (XBMC/OSMC) and Emby (MediaBrowser).

ReNamer has several filter options which configure how added items (files and folders) are treated.

By default, folders are not added to the renaming list as items, instead, their contents are added to the renaming list. To rename the folders themselves, open filter settings and enable option 'Add folders as files'.

Extensions in folders

Note that Skip extension option may also affect folders. A setting 'Folders also have extensions' controls whether ReNamer treats extension in folder names the same way as in files. That is, if there are any periods in the name of a folder, the portion on the right side of the last period is treated as extension.

For example, if you had a list of tutorials organized in folders 01.Introduction, 02.Basics, 03.Advanced and so on. If the 'Folders also have extensions' option was enabled, 01, 02 and 03 would be treated as base names, while Introduction, Basics and Advanced parts would be treated as their extensions, respectively.

Conflicting order


Renaming a folder also affects all of its content. Therefore renaming of folders requires a little more care.

A problem can occur if you try to rename folders and their content in a single run. Items in the renaming list are processed from top to bottom. The order of items in this case is extremely important for successful renaming.

Important: Parent folders must always appear below their contained items. This can be easily achieved by sorting items in descending order by the Folder or Path column.

The Renamer

If a parent folder is renamed first, the actual path for its contents changes instantly, with its new name. However, the subfolders and files contained in that folder are still listed in ReNamer with their old path. As a result, ReNamer is unable to find those items at the specified location, and therefore it cannot rename them.


Let's imagine that you have a folder C:Folder which contains a file C:FolderDocument.txt. You would like to rename both the folder and the contained file at the same time. You have listed the Folder before the Document.txt in ReNamer. As soon as the Folder is renamed to NewFolder, the path for Document.txt changes to C:NewFolderDocument.txt in the file system. However, the Document.txt is still listed in ReNamer at its original location C:FolderDocument.txt. Thus ReNamer is unable to find Document.txt when it attempts to rename it.

In other words, while the contained folder is renamed, the contents are not.
