    Use any EXIF viewer or editor (there are loads on Play) to see the date taken and other info.

    Assuming that data wasn't wiped by the service used to send the video, which is possible.

    EXIF data? That's inside the file, it's not like the time and date of the file. I wouldn't use a system that wiped EXIF data. But I didn't notice the video" in the first post. There's equivalent data on a few videos, but EXIF is picture data - so I'm wrong anyway.

    When it comes to photos, Facebook deletes the EXIF data (for lack of a better term) even you upload it, so I wouldn't be surprised if something like that happened with video data. Without knowing more info from the OP, we're just taking wild guesses anyway.

    Good to know. If I used Facebook, I'd stop. (If the poster doesn't want the EXIF data, that's up to the poster, but as far as I'm concerned, just a blanket removal is like changing any pure red in a picture to black. It shouldn't be Facebook's choice, it should be the user's choice.

    It doesn't bother me. I've never paid attention to that data anyway.
