Applications :: How To Organize Files In Plex

Dec 19, 2009

How am I supposed to organise my files in order for Plex to be able to understand, and tag them. I read that for Movies I have to organise them like this:


:Movie Name


I haven't had much success with this. Also, how do I organise my TV Shows for them to be recognised by Plex?

Applications :: Won't Find Program To Organize All Files

Mar 18, 2009

I have a bunch of music on my computer that isn't properly named, like for instance:

Flo Rida - Right Round is named: right round flo rida.

This is cause I didn't care before and now I do. I also have a lot of videos on my computer, mostly personal, that I'd like to rename. I tried doing it one by one (hitting enter/return key, then changing the name) but it's taking to long.

Is there a program that I can do it? Sorry if this was discussed already, not quite sure what to search.

Applications :: Plex In Conjunction With ITunes?

Oct 31, 2009

I recently started using Plex, and have noticed that some of the sources dont show up correctly, and Im starting to wonder if I am able to use both, or do I have to choose which app (Plex & iTunes) I will use.

Does anyone have a running iTunes+Plex system? And if so how is it organized and tagged?

OS X :: How To Organize Files / Can't Arrange By Name

Oct 6, 2010

I've been a long time windows user and just last week got my first mac! (macbook pro core i5) and so far I'm loving everything about it. Altought I do have some vices I brought with me from windows and I wanted to see if you guys could help me out. On windows I was used to arranging my files automatically by name, and windows would organize it first the folders and then the files itself...all by name.
On mac, I do know how to arrange my files by name, but for example, on my documents folder I have a mix of files (txt,docx,ppt) and folders.
I wanted the folders appearing first (by name) and then the files (also by name)

ITunes For Mac :: Trying To Organize Library And Files

Aug 30, 2014

I am trying to organize my iTunes library and files.  I have a question about the 2 files listed below.  I understand iTunes media is like the master file, but what is "my music" file  and  if i move files there from iTunes media/music, do i need to make a copy of these files and if i make a copy,  is this creating a duplicate file taking up memory space or is this an index? 

Mac HD/user/music/ itunes/ iTunes media 
Mac HD/user/music/my music

Software :: Won't Work With ILife To Organize Files

Dec 13, 2007

I've recently moved from Windows to Mac. Anyway, I've noticed that the iLife apps (mostly iPhoto and iTunes) have the option to let them handle the media files for me. I'm trying to decide if I would be better having them do that for me. For example, in iPhoto - I see that if I don't let it copy every photo I import into its own folder - It won't add ColorSync profiles (does it matter?)

On the other side, it would be more difficult moving into different media organization software if I let the iLife apps do the organization by themselves.

MacBook Pro :: How To Organize Files After Installing SSD In Optical Bay

Dec 8, 2014

I just installed an SSD into my optical drive bay, as well as upgrading my RAM (from 4 Gigs to 8) of my late 2008, MBP 15".  I am booting it up for the first time, since installation, and, now need to re-org my files so that the MBP makes optimal use of the new SSD and RAM. 

Should I now migrate all my files from my old HD (still in its bay) onto my new SSD?  If so, what is the best way to do so? 

Well, now that I've booted up, the MBP doesn't even see the new SSD?  I made sure I installed it as closely as possible to the OWC instructional video. 

Is there a step after installing that I need to do?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Custom Organize Files/folder In Finder?

Jun 22, 2012

I don't like the way that finder arranges my files and folders.  I have tried all the arrangements and none of them "flow" for me.  What I would like to do is to be able to put my files / folders where I want them.  I like to group similar folders together and put the most important files/folders at the top.  Now this isn't an exhaustive list of how I want to arrange them.  Its more about where my eyes go and what I want to see.  I am a new mac user so maybe this is a really simple fix that I don't know about.

Applications :: Won't Find Way To Organize ITunes

Nov 20, 2009

I just wiped out my xp machine and installed win7. I back everything up and iTunes was put back on and I dumped all my data back on for it. I have a mix of music from cd's and music from iTunes (purchased). I have my music all in the music folder but it's all mixed up and I can't tell which songs are actually being used in iTunes if that makes sense. So to help things, I told iTunes to copy the file into it's own folders. Then I told it to do the new folder structure, music, movies, ringtones, etc. Anyways, it seems all is well, however I can't tell which files are purchased and which are not.

If I drag a music file into iTunes, will it copy that file into iTunes and organize it? What happens if a copy already exists, will there be duplicates now? What is the best way to organize all this so I don't go insane and can clean up the mess. I am thinking of copying my backup back over to undo the recent "organization" and go from there.

How can I change this back to what it used to be?

Applications :: Organize Images For Powerpoint/Keynote?

Jan 9, 2009

i give lectures at a local university and wonder if you could suggest a few programs as a repository/organizer for a bunch of images (most will come off the web). I realize that Iphoto can do some of this, however, its tendency to group images by date is not terribly useful to me. What I'd prefer is something like Papers that would let me preview and tag the images.

I wish I could be more specific; however, my imagination is hampered by my lack of familiarity with what software is out there.

Also, if you have any suggestions for organizing materials for presentations--I give 8-10 different 1-hour presentations per week-

Applications :: Unable To Get ITunes To Organize Library

Mar 16, 2009

When I first installed iTunes, I declined the option for iTunes to automatically change the mp3's file names to an organized format. For example, [windows], my 'My Music' folder is very disorganized with files that have the artist first, or just the song name, and even 01 'song name'.

Is there a way I can turn that setting back on so iTunes organizes everything for me? Or was I misinterpreting what it meant?

Applications :: Unable To Organize Music In Itunes

May 11, 2009

Im a little confused with the way itunes organizes songs. Last night I added some of my cds to itunes and I got a little confused after trying to find my songs and not being on one spot which is what I was expecting to see or at least separated by album.

Where does itunes places downloaded songs from a CD? How can I organize my songs (after uploaded) by Artist and Album? Can I create a playlist for each Artist is this the right way to do it? Can someone show me the way the music should be organized in itunes? Can someone explain how itunes organizes songs by default or direct me to where I can get the right information?

Applications :: Best Way To Import, Organize And Edit Photo's

May 28, 2009

I ahve just bought a Canon EOS 450D. I am hoping to start taking alot of photos with this camera in RAW format. I like how easy to use iPhoto is and I love all the other things iPhoto can do such as Books and Calendars etc.

I like using DPP (Canon's Digital Photo Proffesional), to edit the RAW photos as there are alot of settings in there for editing RAW's.

At the moment I use iPhoto to import my photos from my camera and then organise them using iPhoto. I have set iPhoto to edit the photo i click on in DPP when i want to edit and that is all fine and good until I make a change in DPP. The change dosnt appear in iPhoto. I am wondering if it is something to do with the fact that DPP can not see the iPhoto library.

Is there anyway to make my current setup work or dose anyone have any suggestions as to a better way to import, organise and edit my photos.

Applications :: Won't Organize Photos With Folders / Can't Find Apps

Aug 24, 2010

I'm looking for a photo management program that will organize my photos using folders for events, so if I ever decide to switch programs, it will be easy because it's all organized already. I currently have iPhoto, but it doesn't seem to create folders in the "Pictures" directory, so I doubt switching to another program from iPhoto will be simple. Do any of you know of an app that does what I want?

Applications :: Button Grayed - Can't Click To Organize Photos Manually

Sep 19, 2009

I have a little problem with Iphoto. I imported like many photos into Iphoto, it created an event and now I want to organize the photos in my event manually (and only in my event, not in any new iphoto folder or so, and without like renaming the photos manually). In presentation / organize there is a button for "organize manually", but on all the computers that I have at home, that button is grey so I can't click on it (and therefore it's impossible to organize the photos manually)

Mac Mini :: Plex 0.9 And 2 GB RAM?

Mac Mini :: Moving From PS3 Media Server With Plex?

Aug 31, 2010

Currently I stream media (videos only at the moment) through my older MBP C2D Laptop using PS3 Media Server. I find the PS3 is loud and annoying so thinking of picking up a new generation Mac Mini to run my Media Serving Needs. My Equipment list is:

Pioneer 5080HD 768p Plasma

Yamaha RX-V3900 AVR

The rest of the equipment does not really matter. Thinking of hokoing it up by HDMI through the AVR to the plasma. Want to run Plex as my media front end. Now I also have an Acer Windows Home Server box kicking around with 1TB drive in it. Is it possible to use that on the network as a type of Media Storage that can be accessed by the Mini through Plex? Should I just use the WHS box as an archive unit? I know I will fill up the mini's HD fairly quickly.

Also I usually watch 720p MKV files through my PS3 so would I be fine doing that on the mini as well using Plex?

MacBook Pro :: Plex When Playing Movies While UMBP Connected To TV?

Nov 19, 2009

I just received the monoprice male mini-display + male usb audio to female hdmi... when I connected it to my tv it worked great. I changed output for audio to usb and safari and vlc worked great(i.e. hd youtube clips play without hiccup, 1080p movies work, 720p tv shows work)
The only problem I had is when I open plex my sound suddenly goes from coming out of the TV to coming out of the built MBP speakers. What confused me is that sound effects ( when I raise or lower the volume using the shortcuts ) come out of of the tv speakers but the movie sounds come out of the MBP. I tried to look at settings in plex but I couldn't figure it out.

Mac Mini :: Apple Remote Setup / Functionality With Plex?

Jul 13, 2010

I recently bought the 2010 mac mini with the apple remote and I am very happy. I am having a little bit of trouble using the apple remote. Every time I turn on the mac mini I need to go to preferences and change the options of Candelair for the apple remote to work properly with Plex. I mean. I turn on the mac mini and the apple remote wont work absolutely. I need to get the magic mouse and go to preferences and change some options. It seems that this is the only way to "activate" the Plex functionality.

What I want is just to turn on the mac mini and immediately open Plex with the apple remote without needing to use the magic mouse or going to preferences. Is this possible? There must be a way to control the mac mini and Plex just from the start of Mac OS X. It gets very annoying to use the magic mouse along the apple remote. I turn on the mac mini and if I press the middle button (the one to open Plex with Candelair) nothing happens. As I say, I need to go to preferences and adjust the settings of Candelair and then it works. Why doesn't it work from the beginning?
