    I use the xbox game dvr frequently to record clips of gameplay or other in game occurrences for my own memory. I have had the system since launch, and thus have acquired quite a bit of video. Often I do batch uploads to my OneDrive account, and then keep them on storage devices attached to my desktop for later video editing.

    It would be great if there was a way to change the default naming convention of these video files when they get uploaded to OneDrive.
    Currently all of my files are labeled with the date followed by time, as MM-DD-YYYY_HH-MM-SS_AM(or PM). Ideally for archiving, it would be great if it were YYYY-MM-DD followed by time in a 24 hour format. Perhaps my greatest gripe is that the date and time that is used for these clips is not the time or date it was created, but when it was uploaded to OneDrive. I assume somewhere in the xbox o/s each file has an appropriately labeled temporary filename before it is uploaded to either a feed or it not possible to keep those properties?

    An additional thought, maybe a resolution suffix could be added, such as 1080 or 720, or FHD vs HD, since different resolutions are uploaded depending on which system the clip was recorded on.
