### History



Updated by Adam Dingle over 2 years ago

There are two problems here:

1. The camera view in Shotwell isn't showing the videos.

2. Shotwell isn't reading a timestamp for the video files.

Problem (2) has already been reported at#3093. We'll leave this ticket open to
address problem (1).

  * **Priority** changed from _Low_ to _Normal_
  * **Target version** set to _0.13.1_
  * **% Done** changed from _0_ to _50_

Shotwell can detect .MTS files, so simply whitelisting MP_ROOT should do the
trick. The proposed patch for #5160 should help this greatly.
