It is not caused by the update to v2.99.  The uninformative file names are 
caused by the loss of metadata feeds.  If the feeds are restored the 
programme names will probably be as they were.  In the meantime you could 
experiment with something like
--command-tv rename <fileprefix>.mp4   <title>.mp4
I haven't tried it, so you may need to add some quotes.
