  1. Hi,

    After transferring some footage from DV tapes, I noticed that some recordings don't have any date / time stamps. What I mean is, the place where date and time normally would be displayed is completely blank.
    I already know how to adjust an incorrect date / time stamp in a DV AVI file that has the wrong date or time, but is there a way to create a fresh date and time stamp for a DV AVI file that completely lacks a date and time stamp, if I happen to know what date and time the footage was recorded and I want to insert that somehow?
    I have Googled but I don't find anything useful. Any ideas?

    Yes, that is usually where I check first... But I got 0 results when I searched for "time stamp DV AVI". I'm not sure if I should be using different search words and if so what that would be.

    dvdate couldn't create datecode for avis that didn't already have one. enosoft dv processor might be able to but i was never able to get it to work on my win7 systems.

    Try "metadata" as a broader term.

    Yes, I had already tried DVdate and while I was able to adjust date / time codes already present, I wasn't able to create new ones for files that lacked them. The field where the codes normally appear were blank, and unclickable.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I found something called DVMP Pro. I'm not sure if that is what I need, but will try it.

    Its a little sloppy but you can add the encoded date back as a comment and use this to rename your video:

    Code:
    ffmpeg -y -i "C:\Users\Bud\Desktop\_Video.avi" -c:a copy -c:v copy -metadata comment="Encoded Date 2016-04-09 23:22:08" "C:\Users\Bud\Desktop\__Video.avi"
    Yields this with MediaInfo:

    General
    Complete name : C:\Users\Bud\Desktop\__Video.avi
    Format : AVI
    Format/Info : Audio Video Interleave
    Format profile : OpenDML
    File size : 1.25 GiB
    Duration : 1 h 35 min
    Overall bit rate : 1 887 kb/s
    Writing application : Lavf57.21.101
    Comment : Encoded Date 2016-04-09 23:22:08
