    Default Watching Videos - how to view full filename?

    So this seems like an awfully silly question to me, but I can't seem to find the answer anywhere. =/ Hopefully you guys can help me out.

    So I converted a whole bunch of tv shows and threw em on my iPhone, but I didn't change any of the filenames. Unfortunately, the filenames were a little long, and the important bit of the filename got cut off. =/


    When I look through my videos on the iPhone, they cut off at about the word "mother" - which means I can't view the season/episode information, so I actually have to go through and play each one till I find what I'm looking for.

    Does anyone know how to view the full filename ON the iPhone? (I've tried holding my finger on the filename, hoping it would scroll. I've also tried opening the video and pausing it to see if hte filename shows up - it doesn't. And landscape mode doesn't work on the browse video screen... =/)

    THANKS! It would really save me a lot of time instead of renaming everything...

    That is probably past the max characters for a movie. So the answer is no.

    Food for thought
