Re: GoPro Video Files Name saving sequence wrong?

[ Edited ]

Yes it's stupid.  But it's always been stupid (every GoPro ever made, does some version of this). 

If they haven't fixed it by now, they never will. 

They actually did update the filename scheme for the Hero6 but it's equally as useless as the original

Used to be

GOPRnnnn.mp4

GP01nnnn.mp4

GP02nnnn.mp4.

 

Now it's

GH01nnnn.mp4

GH02nnnn.mp4

GH03nnnn.mp4

 

It looks more consistent, but it still sorts the same as before.

GH010001.mp4   (start of first video)

GH010002.mp4   (start of 2nd video)

GH020001.mp4  (continuation of first video)

GH020002.mp4  (continuation of 2nd video) 

 

The advantage of the current scheme is that if you're sorted by filename you can very easily see how many total videos you shot, because they're all grouped together at the top of the list. 

All you can do after that, is pick the first file in the video, select it, then sort by date assending (click twice on date column) and then grab the rest of the files with the same ending sequence #.

 

To get what we want they would have to reverse the order of the two sequences in the name. 

 

E.g.

GH000101.mp4   (first video, first segment)

GH000102.mp4   (first video, second segment)

GH000103.mp4   (first video, third segment)

GH000201.mp4   (second video, first segment)

GH000202.mp4   (second video, second segment)

and so forth.

It would work, but I suspect it would still confuse people, as it would not be immediately obvious how many videos you shot, since they're always grouped all together.

@daemn42 Great observation about the advantages of this naming convention. I hadn't thought of this.

 

For my purposes it's still more of a nuisance than a boon. I personally gain very little from knowing how many total videos I've shot. Plus, I'd rather not have to sort and/or rename everything when editing time comes around. I doubt they'll want to change their default conventions, but GoPro could throw some of us a bone by building in the option to select a naming convention in the preferences menu, similar to how we can set the date format. Pretty please!

Re: GoPro Video Files Name saving sequence wrong?

If anyone is listening at GoPro - PLEASE change this ridiculous naming format! It creates unncessary confussion every time I start editing videos in Premiere and other video editing apps. This is a very simple fix:

 

GOPR1234.mp4 (first video)
GOPR1234-01.mp4 (1st chapter of the original video)
GOPR1234-02.mp4 (2nd chapter of the same video)

Hi @bazzaretta

 

For reference, here is a link on the filename format. GoPro Camera File Naming Convention

 

You may leave your feedback/suggestion regarding the naming of the files on this link.

 

 

Thanks!

Re: GoPro Video Files Name saving sequence wrong?

Hello @jjohncase

 

Are you having the same issue with the GoPro media files that you have? At this time, the file naming convention is described as in this article. If you would have recommendations or suggestions, you can submit them through https://gopro.com/feedback

 

Best regards,

Re: GoPro Video Files Name saving sequence wrong?

I think you're all missing the point.  This isn't something to be "fixed", it is clearly an attempt to force us to use THEIR software to assemble a complete video from its pieces.  THAT IS BAD BUSINESS POLICY (or as stated earlier, it is CRAP).

Re: GoPro Video Files Name saving sequence wrong?

File naming is the most stupid thing I have ever seen regarding such part in tech!

Seriously, GoPro "engineers", I think it should be not for you to decide but for end clients/users (if you do not get it).

Also, even more stupid thing I discovered, that if you export files through iPhone, and then to Mac (or PC), then files get's renamed even more dummier that stuppid. So GoPro leaves us with insequential files by name, and NO METADATA!!! WTF?!

Exported photos through iPhone get's zero info to even recover their sequence. This is absolute disgrace and ignorance! Fix this crap! And add feature to export to iPhone with exact name and all metadata, please. This is so important for work with video. Why do I need to struggle just because you want it to be different way. Give me control over the naming so I could configure once, and enjoy your product, instead being frustraded. And it's not even rocket science to mid-level engineers (and I expect you have at least one seniour to help you out).

How I'm supposed to restore now all my videos when there is no metadata, and names are some weird mumbo jumbo... such as "562980522.113089.MP4", what is this, what date and time is this taken? Which GPS location? I pay for feature on camera, but when I click export, you take away all the basic from me and shufle some **bleep** name and spit out in my face some crap. FIX IT, or hire some profesionals to fix it for you.

 

Go pro Software is total crap in all possible ways. Everything is lagging, lack of basic features.

 

Though, I doubt they'll read this or care about their customers.
