    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.

    Thanks.

    Do you have your iTunes preferences set up to keep your folders organized? It helps to keep a folder for every artist and a folder for every album, so it means less time to fix things.

    Well if you're wanting to do some renaming in a sequence e.g., Home movie 01.mov, Home movie 02.mov, then you can use a program like Name Mangler.

    You could build a fairly simple Automator workflow to do this as well, but Name Mangler is a lot better for the renaming functions.
