If I use the Android app to download the videos it will name according to the camera name as well as timestamp it. For instance I just downloaded a video from my driveway camera which is named "driveway_03_24_2015 12_52_54 <some random number>.mp4". If I do this from the web interface I only get the random number (I'm sure it means something to the Arlo servers).

its not a random number, but the date and time in a special format

 

The file name of each video is in Epoch Time. You may convert that filename here:
