[KPhotoAlbum] exif and video

I may be wrong, but I sadly guess no :-/. In fact, I also noticed it some
times ago, so I looked a bit if the videos would carry some metadata, but it
does not seem to (either with my powershot a80, or powershot s3is)...

At least, this is in fact very annoying, and now you make me think about it.
I think KPA should for example display a warning when it imports some videos
and that it used the modif date as the date. In fact, for me it's OK to tag
the videos when I get them, because it's often still fresh in my memory. But
if I noticed a date problem on an old video, it will obviously be more

But still, maybe we're just unlucky with our cameras? :-)
