Weird filename transformations



  • I love VideoStream, but on my Nexus 10 it displays my filenames with weird changes.
    
    1. If files are similarly named, they will be displayed with one name and a line saying "(n videos)" underneath. When you click on the name you'll see the list of actual names.

    2. Roman numerals become title-case, i. e. VII becomes Vii.

    3. "10 Cloverfield Lane, 2016 1920x0800.mp4" becomes "10 Cloverfield Lane, (2016)".

    4. The following 4 filenames

    The Godfather Chronological Epic, 1901-1945 632x0352.mp4
    The Godfather Chronological Epic, 1945-1958 632x0352.mp4
    The Godfather Chronological Epic, 1958-1979 632x0352.mp4
    The Godfather Chronological Epic, 1979-1980 656x0368.mp4

    become

    The Godfather Chronological Epic,
    Season 19
    Episode 01: 1945
    Episode 02: 1958
    Episode 03: 1979
    Episode 04: 1980

    Why are they doing this? Are the transformation rules documented anywhere??
