Remove portions of File Path within PVD
« on: January 18, 2014, 06:43:00 am »
I have my DVDs stored on an external hard drive with the drive letter E:.  My PC is set up as a web server to stream my movies to my TV.  When creating the XML file, I need the file path to simply be the file name without the path.  At this time, I am manually using replace in Notepad to update the XML file any time I update it, but that is certainly error prone.

Is there some way within PVD that I can tell it the root directory of my videos, and have it only include any path information beyond that root?

Thanks for your help!

Feel free to study the export plugin documentation:

You can use the "replace " template option or better yet the ExtractFileName function. There is also a StringReplace function. So plenty of possibilities, really :)
