I'm not sure if you are saying you want ideas for how to give the
current date and time, or you have tried that and you get no change to
file name.

Assuming the former, then GLib.date_strftime may be useful.
<a href="https://lazka.github.io/pgi-docs/#GLib-2.0/functions.html#GLib.date_strftime">https://lazka.github.io/pgi-docs/#GLib-2.0/functions.html#GLib.date_strftime

Should you mean the latter, I've no idea.

Shubham,

By default integer number with format is used for file indexing.
To use file name as per your wish Use format-location or
format-location-full signals.


Below are the signal details.
Element Signals:
  "format-location" :  gchararray user_function (GstElement* object,
                                                 guint arg0,
                                                 gpointer user_data);
  "format-location-full" :  gchararray user_function (GstElement* object,
                                                      guint arg0,
                                                      GstSample* arg1,
                                                      gpointer user_data);

Use GLib Date and Time Functions for file name generation.
