Default Category:Why are videos and songs being recorded/downloaded with strange file names? Modified on: 2015-12-15 05:00:47 -0500

Naming downloaded videos automatically is tricky. The issue is that all sites stream in different formats and manners. Much of the time the stream Replay Media Catcher records comes from a completely different site than that hosting the video. We use a variety of techniques to try and detect the best name possible for a downloaded/recorded stream - the majority of the time Replay Media Catcher gets it right.

In the cases Replay Media Catcher can't find a good video name, you can rename files directly from within Replay Media Catcher. Just right-click the stream and chooseRename from the menu.

If you wish to send us web site(s) that consistently give gobbly gook file names then please do so - provide as many details as possible.
