File Naming Convention

[ New ]

 

1-23-2019
First - THANK YOU TO DANIEL15.  I am studying the EULA documents he recommended. I will post the legal understanding that I gain - to my "personal" web site. I MAY even (then) purchase some GPRO stock.

SECOND - GoPro Hero 7 White camcorder  produced Video files:
GH010001 to GH010008; then skipped Gh010009 to GH010012; then produced GH010013 and others [ as voice commanded ]


QUESTIONS: Why did my new GOPRO Camcorder device skip file numbers? AND, What is the file naming convention basis?

Please elaborate - if possible.  FOR EXAMPLE - If the "limitation" to continuous & sequential file naming is related to binary, hexadecimal ... I was a "high-tech" worker - before my retirement. I understand "buffer issues": 4-bit, 8-bit, 16, 32 :: Google me - if you want to: Hans Neuhart Susan Merlin USA FBI Dawn Burton Resume'

Hello @susiego, There is information on file naming convention here https://gopro.com/help/articles/question_answer/GoPro-Camera-File-Naming-Convention . See if the missing filenames were brought about by a different recording mode, or by chaptering that happens in the camera. Read more on chaptering here https://gopro.com/help/articles/question_answer/GoPro-Camera-File-Chaptering-Information . Let us know how it works out. Thanks!
