File name change partially working, any help?


iMore Question

File name change partially working

I have several video files i've created and then changed the name of. The name appears changed in the finder BUT when I open it in VLC or drop it in itunes it shows the original name.

There must be another place the name is stored (in the file?)

Any help?

PowerMac, Mac OS 9.0.x, dual ATI Radeon HD 5770 Cards

I know for music you right click the file then go to Get Info then you can change the name of the file (and other info) in itunes. Maybe that will work for you?
