Lightroom mobile: incorrect metadata for videos imported through iOS app

When importing videos from iOS, the date taken field seems to be populated from the date uploaded rather than the true date taken, making them hard to find later in the library.

Given all the bugs with video meta-data and the frequency with video which meta data seems to be lost, automatically renaming video files to include the date in the file name would also be a useful feature.

Jeremy,

Would you have an example file to share with us showing the discrepancy?

Hi Rikk,
On further investigation, I was mistaken and the problem doesn't actually come from lightroom - it seems to be a bug in either the nikon snapbridge app or my camera itself writing an incorrect timestamps on video files so they are wrong before they even enter lightroom.
Thanks for your follow-up though.
