Seems to work OK, once I figured out to use the same folder for both FROM and TO. Did a test run using 10 GoPro files roughly a gig in size total. Using the original version which copies, it took about 30 sec. Using the new version just changing the original, it took about 20 sec. The changed files work OK in the editor so I'm happy. Again, thank you so much.

Glad it worked. I guess I could remove the little underscore from the not renamed files so they would be copies but not renamed so the created wouldn't change when you move them. While I'm at it I could fix that little FROm/TO the same thing too. Glad the version works ok for you now though.
I'm new in this forum and I have the same problem as milkieed.
Where can I find the link for the converter?
A search on this site for 'change date time' will show you the tool download area https://www.videohelp.com/software/Change-Date-Time-Batch
I am working on a beta version that is a little easier and user friendly but in the mean time this version is pretty stable and if you have questions please PM me.
Budman1, this thread is exactly what I am looking for. I downloaded your application and it's *almost* working but not quite. Here's what I'm experiencing, maybe you can help.
I am trying to change the created date to the recorded date on lots of m4v files. For testing purposes I copied 10 files to a test folder. Under Select Encoded / Tagged / Recorded Sources I select 3. Recorded and 1. General. For Select Source Date I chose Use Encoded / Tagged Time. For Select Dates to be changed I use Created Date. Click Convert and Command Line form starts displaying the video data (including the recorded date) but no new files output.
I tried choosing different options for source and the only one I can get to do anything is option 7. Encoded or Tagged or Recorded. It looks to be changing the creation date to the the modified date.
I really need to change the created date to recorded date. Do you have any thoughts on what I might be doing wrong here? Also is there anything that can be done about the Recorded Date also showing time in Media Info showing Date and Time? (Recorded Date in media info currently shows as: "Recorded Date = 2018-04-28T09:58:23-0500") Could it be failing because of that? I'd be fine if the time were stripped out, the date is what really matters.
I appreciate any help you could possible provide, I'm sitting on hundreds if not thousands of videos I need to change the dates on.
I will check out how it works with your setting. In the mean time, check the debug box to make the cmd window stay open so you can check for errors.
Can you post or send me the MediaInfo text printout? Just need it since MOST videos do not have Recorded but may have Encoded and Tagged.
Also make sure the version is 1.17.05.04 Thanks

C:\Users\JoshG\Downloads\Change_Date_Time_1_17_05_ 04>"MediaInfo.exe" "--Inform=General;Encoded Date = %Encoded_Date%\r\nTagged Date = %Tagged_Date%\r\nRecorded Date = %Recorded_Date%" "C:\Users\JoshG\Desktop\Test\IMG_0036.m4v"
Encoded Date = UTC 2018-10-01 09:09:13
Tagged Date = UTC 2018-10-01 09:09:42
Recorded Date = 2018-04-28T09:58:23-0500
I would just like to add that I truly appreciate you replying on an OLD thread, I wasn't sure if I was going to get a response.
Ok... I found an error in my visual studio code and fixed. I see the recorded is different than the encode and tagged so I will modify for this. I dont have a test video so the recorded wasn't tested. As soon as I get a file or manually modify one so it has recorded, I'll post fix.
OK... I have about a billion videos on my computer but no APPLE custom format of Recorded Date like you show:
Recorded date : 2018-01-26T17:19:54-0800
Encoded date : UTC 2018-10-01 09:11:45
Tagged date : UTC 2018-10-01 09:12:17
Are they all M4V?
