I have tried to google this but the newest thing I can find is for hero 9, I found one for 2015, and one that shows how to change the film date on desktop. I am wondering if there is any way to add a time or date stamp to go pro hero 11 video footage directly from the camera. The time was 2 minutes ahead but I have fixed it now.

Any help is appreciated. 馃檪

Hello. There is no native GoPro application that can do this but there may be applications that can be used. You can use editing tools like Pinnacle Studio HD, Davinci Resolve, Windows Movie Maker, Adobe Premiere Elements, and Apple's iMovie and Final Cut X.
For more advanced video editing applications, please refer to DaVinci Resolve (Free Version) or Adobe Premiere Pro CC (Paid).

Yes, it is possible to add a time or date stamp to your GoPro Hero 11 video footage directly from the camera itself. Here are the steps you can follow:
  1. Turn on your GoPro Hero 11 camera and navigate to the settings menu.
  2. Scroll down to the "Preferences" option and select it.
  3. Under "Preferences," you will see an option for "Date/Time." Select it.
  4. Adjust the date and time settings to reflect the correct time and date.
  5. Once you have set the date and time, exit the menu and start recording your video footage.
  6. During recording, you can enable the date and time stamp by swiping down on the camera's touch screen to access the "Settings" menu.
  7. In the "Settings" menu, select "Preferences" and then "Date Stamp."
  8. Toggle the "Date Stamp" option to "On" to add the date and time stamp to your video footage.
Note: The date and time stamp will only be visible on the video footage if you have enabled it before recording. You cannot add the date and time stamp to already recorded footage.

Ummm...don't we have the ability to set the date and time in Preferences?
That's how I've done it, like for Daylight Savings time change.
If I right click on a video in Quik on my PC, I have the option to "open in explorer". There I can get the start and finish times.
I use Race Render Ultimate to take the gpx data off the video and have a track that I can use later. With the tracks I know minute by minute where I was when taking the video.
Or am I completely off base here?

The date and time in preferences are just for the time in the pull down menu, a timestamp is more like this that you would get out of a traditional video camera.
