I need to move mp4 videos from my computer or Google Drive to my Galaxy S9 without losing the original date/time stamp. I can easily modify this information with Exiftool on my computer. However on my phone, I cannot find a solution to edit the metadata or preserve it while transferring. It always changes to the current date/time.

  • Create some archive (zip, tar, 7z etc.) to preserve original metadata. But all types of archives don't preserve all kind of metadata. To modify date/time stamp on Android, simply use touch command as explained here. Or use some file explorer like MiXplorer to modify date/time. – Irfan Latif May 3 '19 at 18:33
