Why can't I get foobar to name my mp4's right?
Ok, as recommended by others, I am using foobar 0.7.5 beta 1 with the foo_nero component. I am also using the freedb componet too. Before converting a cd to aac/mp4 I do a freedb lookup. Then I highlight the tracks I want to rip and start the convertion. The problem is that the files all come out like this "001 FCF62609,01.mp4". I can't figure out a way to get it to name it based on the freedb. It this case it would be "Eve6 - 01 - Without you here.mp4"

I searched the forums but I can't find any matches to my topic. I hope this isn't to stupid of a question. I know there has to be a way to better automating the process.

Have you set Output file name formatting under Diskwriter options to something like:

Code: [Select]
%artist%-%date%-CDType-%album%\$num(%tracknumber%,2)-%title%


(Be sure to check create subdirectories)
