Re: 7 Black Video file meta time is wrong.

@gopro will you please provide a status updat for your 400 dollar flagship device? This is something I think should have been captured in your first round of testing

Re: 7 Black Video file meta time is wrong.

Re: 7 Black Video file meta time is wrong.

robert's suggestion will fix the video timestamp, but will also mess up all photo timestamps

So that's not a real solution

Re: 7 Black Video file meta time is wrong.

I have this issue too with my GoPro HERO 7 Black, and I've talked to the GoPro support, they seem to be aware about this issue, but it affects previous GoPro models like my old HERO 5. It's really awful that a company with 400$ products cannot fix this issue, whereas almost all 30$ chinese junk has correct video metadata!

I to have this issue, and is really bad when trying to do the guages on an overlay in quik.  The time is never even close to correct!
