Time and Date stamp on video

[ New ]

Hi there 

 

how do i get the time and date to show through to the content i record.

 

I use this for sending off to the police when drivers give me the close pass 'i didnt see you' thing.

Hello, @aidanbompa. There is no direct way to display the time and date information on the recorded files, as in overlay. You may be able to do it using editing applications.

That's going to be difficult as it's not a native feature supported by the GoPro camera's.  The GoPro Hero 8 and 9 can do this by using the GoPro Labs firmware (as the risk of making the camera unstable as the GoPro labs firmare is based on older firmware).

 

The closest I could find was this:

However if your time and date on the camera is set correctly, this will be in the meta data of the file itself (it will have a "created" date and time associated with it).
