    I recently transferred some videos dating from 2013 to 2015 to my SD card. Now, when you sort the videos by Time, it looks like all the videos were taken from yesterday. When I tried opening Google Photos, it sorts out the videos by time correctly.

    Because the photos were tagged as modified on the time you saved them to the card. I don't think the gallery app looks at the metadata, just the photo properties for the date.

    OK so I finally solved it. The Gallery does sorting using the Date modified data. When you transfer files using OTG or MTP/PTP, the 'Date modified' becomes the date and time you transferred the files. What I did was remove the SD card, put it in a SD card reader so Windows would treat it as a removable device, then I copied my files again from a backup. The Date modified field is unchanged [same as Date taken]. Gallery now sorts the files correctly.
