    I am also working with private investigative video files and need the date & time stamp to show on the video when copied to a DVD. I am using the Picture Motion Browser program provided with the HandyCam. Can you walk me through exactly how to use this utility program? I'm using Windows XP.



    Thanks so much for your help. When I called Sony, they told me there was no way to do what I needed to do.

I was having the same problem, and was tasked to find a solution at work.

I ended finding talking with a developer who wrote a custom utility that can extract the time/date data from the .MPG (it's hidden in there somewhere) as a special txt file.

Here's a link to that utility: (special version for NTSC footage):
http://dl.free.fr/pNo24JrdB (Special thanks to fnx91 on the videohelp forums)

Then you import that file into a piece of software called DVSubmaker which will convert that data in a special format (.sub) used by certain DVD/Video players to display subtitles.

Here's the best 2 options for playback:

1. Windows Media Player (need Mpeg2 codec) combined with a plugin called Vobsub - Free:)
2. ZoomPlayer (DVD Software) - $60

So in a nutshell, your displaying the original time/date stamp as subtitles on top of the video.

Contact me if you have any troubles.

How do I get time date stamp to show on video footage taken with JVC Everio GZ-HD620


The AVCHD file contains the time date stamp as subtitle track. Any player that can show subtitles can show the time/date stamp (I use Videolan Player).

Usually, after downloading the avchd files to my computer, i do an OCR on the sub file and convert it to .srt, as well as conver the avchd into .mkv and include teh subtitle file into it.

The date and time are stored with every image. Any photo editing program should be able to show you that data (and a LOT more); look for something like "image info" or "EXIF data". If you want the data printed with the picture, refer to the documentation for whatever program you're using to print. Depending on the program and the printer, you may be able to display the date and time on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

I have a dcr-sr200 and have 7 hrs worth of video to burn that took about five hours. But when I check it the time date stamp did not appear. I can seem to figure it out . please help


I understand that you have burned the videos to a disc using Computer and the burned videos does not have the date and time on it. In order to get date and time on videos taken using the Hard Disk Camcorder, the video should transfer using A/V interface with the DATA CODE option on the Camcorder enabled.

Once you enable DATA CODE, the date and time will be shown when playing videos in the Camcorder. You can view when you connect the Camcorder directly to a TV. While using the A/V interface with Computer to capture videos using an Analog Video Capture Software like Windows Movie Maker, you will get the videos in Computer with date and time displayed. You can burn those videos using a burning software.

If you're using stand alone DVD Recorder, you can enable the DATA CODE and use the A/V interface to connect the Camcorder to the DVD Recorder to get the date and time on videos.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know for clarifications. You can also give more information about the recording method you're using to give more specific instructions.

How is the time/date stamp displayed on a copy


The time/date is 'stamped' onto the video during recording. The time/date stamp function can be turned on or off in the setup menu. If it was 'on' during recording, it will be displayed when played back. If it was turned off, it will not be seen on the recording.

Panasonic SDR-H40-Date/time missing when transfering video to PC


get a capture card, an AV cord ( red, yellow and white cord) and record it onto the computer. This will push the date and time stamp onto the video. There really isnt any other quick solution :-(, unless you sport 800$ for a highend camera, then all harddrive cameras have this problem.

Date and time stamp


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.
