I'm re-ripping my entire Futurama collection to my external hard drive to save space.

(please note: I'm ripping from legit DVD's for my own personal "archival" use, there is no piracy or illicit activities involved)

Originally, I had them all ripped into *.iso format, which I watch directly in VLC. It's a nice solution which allows me to watch as much as I want without changing out discs. However, each file is roughly 4.4 gigs. On a  2TB drive, that's not a big deal. But space-saving is still a smart move. So for the sake of space-saving and convenience, I've been re-ripping into *.avi format. Each ep now gets its own little file. And since I never memorized what eps were on which discs, it's so much easier to find them by name without having to look up what disc they're on.

So my naming convention thus far is like this:
Futurama S01E01 Space Pilot 3000
(I don't actually have the .avi part because Ubuntu doesn't need it)

I've finished all the way through season 4, but now I have a problem.

The movies.

What do I name them?

Futurama S05E01 Bender's Big Score
Futurama S05E05 The Beast with a Billion Backs
et cetera

That seems awkward, but it ensures the files are in the correct order in the folder. I could go with "S05D01" and "S05D02" which is also awkward, but makes sense.

Any ideas?

The 01, 05 is a good idea.

You could do it the way you are or name them with their acv numbers ie: 1acv01, 1acv02 ect. and then put the name after the number

That amounts to the same thing, and results in the same issue when it comes to the movies. I don't really want to have to name them "Futurama 5ACV01, 5ACV02, 5ACV03, 5ACV04 Bender's Big Score"

Hmmm, not sure then Can't you just rip the movies as just one file? And then just call it 5acv01 for BBS and 5acv02 for BWABB?

That's all I can think of. Or you can jsut number them normally with no letters or anything. And just count the movies as one ep.

I just count the movies as one ep.

Futurama S05E01-04 Bender's Big Score
Futurama S05E05-08 The Beast with a Billion Backs
etc

Hmm, this one could work. It's fairly consistent with the system, yet covers the bases well, and it'll sort properly.
