It should be possible to import the Media Created column into Opus with a short script column, but all my AVI files have that column blank so it's difficult to test it works.
Is there a small AVI file with that column populated which you could send to check with? You can send via private message if it isn't a public file, and/or use a link to GoogleDrive or similar if it's larger than the forum's attachment limit.
Drag it to Preferences / Toolbars / Scripts, then click OK.
The list of columns and infotip fields will then include Script > Media created which has the same data as the column from Explorer.
Here's what's in the script (text file above), for reference:
initData.name = "Media Created Column"
initData.desc = "Imports the Media Created column from Explorer"
initData.copyright = "(c) 2017 Leo Davidson"
initData.version = "1.0"
initData.default_enable = true
initData.min_version = "12.6"
Dim props, prop, col
Set props = DOpus.FSUtil.GetShellPropertyList("System.Media.DateEncoded", "r")
If (props.length = 1) Then
Set prop = props(0)
Set col = initData.AddColumn
col.name = prop.raw_name
col.method = "OnMediaCreatedColumn"
col.label = prop.display_name
col.type = "datetime,utc"
col.justify = "right"
col.autogroup = true
col.userdata = prop.pkey
scriptColData.value = scriptColData.item.shellprop(scriptColData.userdata)
Wanted to say this post helped me today too. As a part of my GoPro workflow I am using ffmpeg to re-encode raw video to a compressed format, but wanted to preserve the metadata from the source files. All the new compressed files have date stamps from current day. I had figured out how to pass the metadata from the raw files to the newly compressed ones - the original date info goes into the 'media created' metadata field on the new file. Adding this script now allows me to see the original create dates of my videos in their newly compressed format.
Realizing this thread is 4 years old...
I signed in to the forum just to thank you -
This thread helped me today to rename a bunch of old avi files with the "Media created" date.
