Converted added to end of file name.

Postby biggerslick » 25 Jun 2009, 06:17

Okay, I tried doing a search on the converted. Let us say I convert a file perhaps a flash video or avi etc. It adds the word "converted" into the file name that has been converted. I just wanna get a file with its original name and the newly converted extension. Is there a way to turn this "converted" text in the filename off? It is irritating when you batch convert a lot of files, cause then you have to rename them.

Hello and welcome ,

The answer is no not at this time because this was done as a security measure in order to avoid disasters by overwriting original files .

We may have to study an option to enable or disable this feature in future release if it is does not take too long programming to modify.

I hope this answers your question properly ,

Have a nice day

Yeah thanks. It would seem easier to just have a dialog box ask to overwrite a file or not, or require the newly converted files with their differing extensions be placed in a converted folder instead of renaming each file with that converted tag. Let's say a batch conversion is required for 500 files, can you imagine how long it would take someone to rename every single file? Other than that a great product though.

Hello and thanks for your feed back ,

This was originally designed for unexperienced users, as you may know normally windows does warn you before rewriting a file, however a lot of users just click yes because it has become a habbit to them , so to be on the safe side and to make sure people could differenciate the files converted from the others we opted for that solution, we can however understand that in cases such as yours and for batch processes of 500 files it may become a bit annoying , we will have a look at different possible solutions to see if we can offer an extra solution to this issue..

Have a nice day.
