Session numbers don't seem to work for mp4 files

Asked by mike seven

I was trying to use Session numbers in both photo and video renaming. I put in a card with two images and then a few mp4 files. The images get named xxxx001.jpg xxxx002.jpg as expected. The first mp4 gets named xxxx002.mp4, reusing 2, and the following mp4 files don't download giving an error that Video xxxx002.mp4 already exists.

I've just tested with mov files and they get numbered properly, i.e. 3, 4 5 etc.

Bug, or am I doing it wrong?

You found a bug in the use of session sequence numbers. They were being reset every time a download was initiated, not every time the program was started. It will be fixed in the next release. Thanks!

I think that is a different bug than the issue I am having. The latest release with the fix does not solve my problem. I've submitted a proper bug report.

Can you help with this problem?
