I have hdhomerun prime and I am currently recording tv shows through windows media player. I like the setup , the tv channel grid and easy interface of Windows Media Player however, I am having to convert the files to .mp4 using handbrake to view through plex and roku. It is time consuming and It is messy. It is a lot of manual work. How can I setup plex to read the .wtv files without converting them and to keep it neat where I can find by show, year, episode title, number and date? . Do I need to simply add something somewhere in plex to read .wtv files etc ? If not, Is there another program that would work better with preset script to point to the drive and just play when selected or another way to view on Roku?
How it is now, the folders generally show this year and not the year of the season. I can see the title but there is no episode number to keep them in order. I figured out that the file name, date, season, year and episode number is important to organize series and episodes, so I have been trying to figure out how to straighten my mess out but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to change the output recording title within Windows media player? For example .wtv recorded output file name reads - "Fargo-The Crocodile's Dilemma-2015_09_10_01_59_00.wtv", I list my folders as (e.g.Title, Year then sub S1 folder,then E1 so on and so on ) I would like the file to read something like this or even shorter - Fargo-The Crocodile's Dilemma-S1E1 2015.wtv
Fargo-The Crocodile's Dilemma-S1E1 9-10-15.wtv The program title is just a random example.. Is there another or a better program that will record and give better title options?
Or if there is an easier way to do it with a script or something point, click, set and let it do the work. Or am I asking for to much?
