In our dropboxes, we use /path/to/folder/* without extension

It works perfectly. Rivendell imports ogg, mp3 and wav together

Filenames don't have to be in a specific format in order to work with
Rivendell dropboxes. The dropbox setup GUI allows one to specify, for
example, "all MP3 files" (using the familiar pattern *.mp3) in the
dropbox path spec (for "all FLAC files" you'd use "*.flac"), but other
than that, there is no filename restriction. If one wants to
programmatically import both MP3 files and WAV files from the same
directory, one would configure two different Rivendell dropboxes; one
with the "*.mp3" pattern in the path specification, and one with the
"*.wav" pattern.

You *may* specify a file naming pattern using "percent escapes" as
placeholders for things like artist name (%a), track title (%t), and
album name (%l), but these are optional elements of Rivendell

I find it slightly clumsy, but it does work and it's straight forward
once you get used to it.

I haven't used Rivendell's dropboxes, but don't the file names have
to be a particular format that's known beforehand to Rivendell?

Hello there,

I guess that's what dropboxes are for in Rivendell. At least
that's how
we use them : copy all the contents of a USB drive to a dropbox
and let it smoothly "rip" its contents.
