Include Timestamp in exported video


As the videos in Canary’s timeline may not be continuous recordings but have little jumps of inactivity in them it would be great if exported/downloaded videos would show a running timestamp.

Without it, you can’t really know when something happened or how long it took. The filename provides the starting time. But as duration of the recording and the time of events may differ, it’s not clear when things end.


Hi @herr_schaft,

They actually do! The video’s timestamp is stored in the subtitle track of the video. You just need to use a player that supports subtitles like VLC.



Nice :slight_smile:
Thanks for the info.
