Renaming files based on Folder Names

Postby Fluke667 » 2018-11-17 14:59

I want Rename mp4 files in my Subfolders, the filename should be same as the folder Name after renaming...

This is my Command:

ls */*.mp4 | awk -F'/' '{print "mv " $0 " ./" $1 "_" $2 }' | bash

FolderA/MovieA.mp4 >>> FolderA.mp4
FolderB/MovieB.mp4 >>> FolderB.mp4
FolderC/MovieC.mp4 >>> FolderC.mp4

But it does not work if the folder or filesnames got a Bracket or Space or other special chars, what can i do?

    mv "$i" "${PWD##*/}_$i"
