Evo II Pro 6K v1 (I have two of the same aircraft and files show up the same for both)
Lightroom Classic (every version for the last two years, currently on 10.0.19043)

This is really a Lightroom issue, I guess, but hoping someone else has experienced this and found a fix/workaround.
In Windows explorer the "date" and the "date modified" both match the date/time I recorded the video. The "date taken" is blank. The "date created" is the date/time I imported into LR.

In LR, the EXIF "date/time digitized" is 1/1/1904 at 12am for every video file (mp4), and the EXIF "date time" is the date/time I imported into LR.
In LR, the file sort is based on "date/time digitized" and the Library metadata filter uses "date/time digitized" as well. so I cannot view filter results for any specific date.
I cannot find the actual date/time I recorded the file anywhere in LR metadata.

The file dates match the date/time I recorded the file in Davinci Resolve.

It would be nice if I could use the date/time recorded in LR.

Any ideas??
TIA!

Autel doesn't write metadata correctly to the EVO II's video files. In the absence of correct capture date metadata, Lightroom just puts in 1/1/1904. Another program called Photo Mechanic puts in 12/31/69. The only solution I know of is to have the the drone write the current date into the appropriate place in the video files' metadata fields.
