    LR6: Importing mp4 video files with capture time

    brianhuffman

      I've noticed that importing mp4 video files (from android camera) doesn't populate the capture time.  So the files can't be filtered in smart collections according to date.

       

      However if I go into MetaData->Edit Capture time, I see that Lightroom already knows the correct capture time (it's preset in the "Original Time" field) and it's correct!  So why doesn't it set the correct metadata so that it can be filtered?  Is there a way to have it apply that capture time automatically on import?

       

      If not, does anyone know where it's getting that time and if it's accessible via the SDK API?  If it is, I will write my own plugin to automatically fix the files.

       

      Thanks!
