Default new zip naming policy



  • This is quite peculiar…

    I have a catalogue of .ogm files (video) and a second set of .ssa files (external subtitles) in the same catalogue.

    The problem is: when I right click two files (.ogm and corresponding .ssa) the default name for .zip is a directory name in which the files reside.

    This gives me quite a problem while trying to compress each set (.ogm + .ssa) of 48 files in the same directory as by default they would be overriding each other!

    Any suggestions?

    enable batch zip in shell extensions and try using batch zip, it will do exactly what you want 🙂

    I’m afraid it’s not the case. I get 2 .zip files for each while I need only 1

    e.g. file1.ogm, file1.ssa, file2.ogm, file2.ssa

    What I need is file1.ogm+file1.ssa in the file1.zip archive (also spanning if the archive is going to be bigger that 200MB), file2.ogm+file2.ssa compressed to file2.zip, etc.

    I couldn’t do this using current PA settings. Am I missing something?

    nope, its very specific, it seems like the best bet would be to use PACL and script it way you want through batch script

    Heh, I knew nothing in life is that simple.

    So as it is a wishlist:

    I would like to see the option to change the default naming conventions of the .zip compressor so I could set it as ‘namefile’ + ‘text’ or any other variable. Tx for your help!
