Why can't the file name of a downloaded file include the date and time? I have read about this on the community & downloaded MediaInfo so that I can access the embedded information. The timestamp embedded in the video is not the correct local time. What time zone is the Arlo cloud based on? This seems quite inconvenient, to me. This is a security camera!! Many of us will want to use footage as proof of any number of things to police, or other officials as is my case here. After accessing the embedded information I had to change the filenames to reflect when they took place so I can reference them. This may be considered tampering with the file!?!?

The filename is the Unix time from the epoch (Jan.1, 1970). Use your converter of choice to get human-readable date and time. Here's one:
