Punctuation marks display as underscores in filename


Punctuation marks that are entered for names of recordings and clips display as underscores (_) in the filename.


The following are invalid characters in a filename in Windows:


< (less than)

> (greater than)

: (colon)

" (double quote)

/ (forward slash)

\ (backslash)

| (vertical bar or pipe)

? (question mark)

* (asterisk)


SnapStream will replace any of these characters with an _ in the filename only. The correct characters will be seen in the file's metadata and everything SnapStream displays internally.
