Let's say I have a video file called "12-25-83 - WCCW Star Wars" and I have given it that file name. When I play it in WMP, it says something like "WCCW.Star.Wars.12.25.83" instead of the file name I've given it. How do I fix that?

I haven't used it in years but you should be able to edit the metadata in the program or in the properties. Try right-clicking and edit file info or something like that.

I see you found the solution, but I would recommend that you look up XBMC and read up on it a little bit. It's what I use on my HTPC and also on the old laptop I just gave the kids. It's cross-platform, and allows you to manage, sort, search, and play your media library in a nice interface designed for televisions, including using a remote control or game controller to navigate it if you want.

And probably causes you hours of frustration because Jude likes it that way.

I am obsessed (obsessed!!!) with organizing collections, and I find it to be a very useful tool that reduces frustration. Not sure where Syxx stands on the need to organize, but I imagine his wrestling video collection to be quite extensive, and therefore good fodder for a library management program. :P

Also, using a Microsoft program by choice rather than as a last resort is the sort of thing I don't believe anyone does. :P

It has more to do with how it shows up on my X-box than anything.

:? You're welcome. Are you being sarcastic?

If I wasn't posting that response from my tablet, I would have checked it out in WMP.

No sarcasm at all. Can't stress enough how annoying as shit it is to organize everything in a specific order then the X-Box refuse to recognize said order. Now I've got it working perfectly.

It was your talk of metadata that led to me finding the solution, BTW.

Although in retrospect, your suggestion is what I used after all. I kept trying to edit the properties in Windows Explorer instead of WMP, which was dumb of me. Look all that matters is everything is in order on my X-Box finally :-D

That's good. I used to use WMP on my old PC because it was one of those Media Center thingies and I found that editing the metadata/file info in WMP was the best way to sort and order my music.
