TV Series like Game of Thrones and Modern Family, are highly watched all over the world these days. Some people watch them on TV, others stream it from the internet, while another group of people like to download/ rip the TV Series and and store it in their hard drive. However, when downloading or ripping a complete season or some episodes of TV Series, a very common issue that comes up is of file names. Everyone likes to keep their local files named according to their own personal preference of naming format. Some people like to keep only the season and episode number, while others want the complete episode title in the file name. Editing each file manually and renaming it can be quite a tedious task. Previously, we have covered a very useful tool to rename episodes of TV series, called Name My TV Series, which is a multi-platform application to easily and quickly rename the locally available TV Series. Today, we have another software which performs the same function but in an even easier way. theRenamer is an application for Windows that lets you automatically rename your TV Series, as well as movies, allowing you to organize them in your hard drive. More on theRenamer after the break.
The application works with almost all the popular databases of movies and TV Series, including IMDb.com, TV.com, the TVDB.com, EPGUIDES.com and MMA. It uses Google as its main engine for matching the episodes, and when found, automatically grabs the official show name and episode titles from the most comprehensive databases on the internet. From the main interface, the application allows you to toggle between TV Shows and Movies mode. You can also choose the default database which will be used to retrieve the information.
To add files to the application for renaming, just drag and drop them on to the main interface. The application will automatically search for their correct file names. You will be provided with an option to select which files to rename and the ones to keep with their original name. Click Proceed to change the file names.
The Settings menu lets you configure the renaming format. You can choose to include or exclude the Show Name, Season Number, Episode Title, and specify the season and episode numbering format, the Fetch folder and TV Shows Archive etc.
The application works on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
