    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.

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.

Here is the link for the manual. There is detailed info around pages 20-25 on this topic.

On mine you go to Menu, Video Display, and then change the date time to on.

Most camers will always record the date/time stamp, whether or not it is displayed is this setting.
