We are making a sports highlight video. The video came off a Sony Handycam. We viewed the tape using the handycam to reference sports plays to edit using the time/date data in the lower left of the...

I use this information in photography, its caled EXIF Data, and basicaly is the internal information stamp in the pic (date, camera type, focus used, expsure range, etc, etc).

EXIF data on each movie clip recorded is stored in the accompanying .THM file which is a small JPEG thumbnail file of the first frame of the movie.

Force open the *.thm file with photoshop (or simply make a backup copy and change the extension to *.jpg) and read the EXIF via Ctrl+Alt+Shift+I.

I know that the video files also keep this information and could be vewer and modificated; try to check this software and apply it:

Additional details could find in this site:

Just one last personal recommendation: ALLWAYS, ALLWAYS keep some backup copy about your files.

Good luck.
