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?

Have you searched the software library here on VideoHelp?
Its a little sloppy but you can add the encoded date back as a comment and use this to rename your video:
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"
