Rename recorded files

Recordings are named based on the file name prefix specified during configuration. You can change the recording file name using the Admin panel. You can also change the default name that Pearl-2 assigns to recordings, see Configure recording settings, file size and type for information about setting file name prefixes.

Rename a recording using the Admin panel

  1. Login to the Admin panel as admin, see Connect to Admin panel.
  1. Open the Recording page. Do one of the following:
    1. To view files recorded for a channel, select a channel from the Channels menu and click Recording.
    2. To view files recoded for a recorder, select a recorder from the Recorders menu.
  2. All recordings are listed and sorted by date. Select the edit icon next to the file name you want to change.

  1. Type the new file name and press Enter using your keyboard.

The Admin panel keeps track of the filename extension (i.e. .avi) so you do not need to include it when renaming the file.
