incorrect time

I took a video to understand the issue better :

As you can see - even gopro's time settings are the same with wristwatch, later on with video export on Quik app the time shows wrong. I Don't know if is somehow related with timezones - this video is taken UTC/GMT +3, BUT it doesnt matter - check the frame from another video (see attachment)
 - the video data shows wristwatch time plus 3 hrs, however in this video minus 3hrs.

 

the hell is wrong with GOPRO????

Re: incorrect time

I have the exact same issue with a GoPro Hero 7 White. Firmware and apps are up to date but video shows the wrong time. They are consistenly 5 hours off. ie: A video taken at 7PM shows as 2PM. I notice this when I upload to Google Photos. Pictures do not have this problem, only video. I've tried transferring via the app and direclty from the SD card yet the problem persists.

Re: incorrect time

Oh boy! Just be curious - Are you in timezone GMT -5 ? I just want to get clear what makes this issue. Could it be "video shot time" + "timezone difference from GMT" = video shot time shown on Google photos.
For my situation the formula would be (Latvia, GMT+3 on DST) : 5PM + (GMT+3) = 8PM (20:00 on the previous post)
Now in wintertime the time difference on gopro files and Google photos is the same as GMT time (+2)
For you - 7PM + (GMT-5) = 2PM
Where's the coincidence?
Is the issue generated depending in which time zone the GoPro video are uploaded?
Sorry for my English.

Re: incorrect time

Hey @mariustanya, any update? It's been 6 months and this still seems to be an issue, or at least a similar issue is happening with my Hero7 Black.

Re: incorrect time

Hey, I found a solution to my situation: I bought a MicroSD USB reader and uploaded from PC to Google photos. Finally, there are no more differences in shot time shown in GP and GoPro.

 

hope it helps you!

 

cheers
