    probably has been posted somewhere but thought I would toss my idea out . I save my videos in separate files on an external drive . I don't name them but simply sort them by location ,etc. The issue I was having would be two files with the same YUN0000023 number . My new system is to empty my sd cards but leave a file there numbered say YUN001000 . The Q will start with numbers sequentially from there and when I shoot at the same location the numbers won't be the same . May help some folks out .

    What about naming them for the date? Say you're going out for a run on Feb 12th and 13th, and you prep the SD card by creating a file named 2018-Feb-11. Will it name the first video 2018-Feb-12 to match the actual date?

    That's just an example, of course. I mean, who only flies once a day? lol

    But you could potentially further customize the video numbering with say 2018-02-12-1 (year, month, day, number of video for that day).

    I was not that brave , but give it a try , I actually used a card in a dji rig that had yuneek files on it and the phantom used the next sequential number , I didn't even remember there were files on there no less consider the interaction . Hard to believe .
