Timestamp is missing

the new version doesn’t show the time stamp on the Videoclips.

It would be really helpful if you’d provide the following information so our engineer colleagues can identify and solve your problem sooner.

Hi @foh.handy,

Thank you for reaching out.

Some users told us that the time stamp was blocking their view, so now the time stamp is only showing when you pause the video.

Hope this helps!

Hello Alfred

After downloading, the DateTime stamp is not visible at the corners or anywhere even when video is paused.

When will the Date/Time stamp of the video be availed for downloaded clips instead of filename?


Could you please let us know why you want to put the timestamp on your downloaded videos?

Hello Alfred

After downloading, I do screen dumps for reporting purpose.

Without the stamp, several screen grabs can be less meaningful without the stamp for chronological order.

Therefter, I will link to the full downloaded clip.



Any way to resolve this or a workaround? Saves videos, after uploading to YouTube is a video without any Time Stamp and not even the File Name.


We have delivered your idea to our team. We will look into the possibility. Since many factors have to be taken into consideration, we can’t give you a timeline yet. Please continue to support Alfred and share your thoughts with us!

please bring timestamp back or the the saved video is much meaningless for security/monitoring

I reported a crime caught on Alfred video to the police but the video it worthless without the timestamp to prove when it happened.

No time stamp is a pain I agree but if a crime is caught on video it’s still a crime with a time stamp or not. Time stamps can not always be trusted anyhow. If law enforcement agencies told you that they can not act on the video because of no time stamp then I believe that they are fobbing you off and there is probably another reason that they can not use it or they just can’t be bothered.
Good luck
