GoPro Hero 7 Black File Naming Conventions - A Better Way

[ Edited ]

Is it only me that has found this naming convention super annoying since the beginning (and now its even worse with a mixture of AVC and HEVC files along with the split files)... why Gopro... why? In a folder they get all mixed up when sorted by name!

 

GH010235.MP4 - Recording #2 Part 01

GH010236.MP4 - Recording #3

GH020235.MP4 - Recording #2 Part 02

GH030235.MP4 - Recording #2 Part 03

GH040235.MP4 - Recording #2 Part 04

GX010234.MP4 - Recording #1

 

A better way so they automatically will sort in a folder by name alphabetically and in date/time recorded order is of course something like this...

 

(GP + FILE NUMBER + CODEC TYPE + PART NUMBER)

GP0234H01.MP4 - Recording #1

GP0235A01.MP4 - Recording #2 Part 01

GP0235A02.MP4 - Recording #2 Part 02

GP0235A03.MP4 - Recording #2 Part 03

GP0235A04.MP4 - Recording #2 Part 04

GP0236A01.MP4 - Recording #3

 

Or

 

(GP + FILE NUMBER + PART NUMBER + CODEC TYPE)

GP023401H.MP4 - Recording #1

GP023501A.MP4 - Recording #2 Part 01

GP023502A.MP4 - Recording #2 Part 02

GP023503A.MP4 - Recording #2 Part 03

GP023504A.MP4 - Recording #2 Part 04

GP023601A.MP4 - Recording #3

Re: GoPro Hero 7 Black File Naming Conventions - A Better Way

 Iown a few models I rather see it be  named to the camera I own. I can deal with the  way it is, because otehr camera companies  do the same.  Whateverhappened to to the Old fashion File_0001 naming lol.   IfI get all my clips in order I can highlightthewhole and name it whatever I want.
