Hello friendly community.

I have several video clips from a Google Nest camera that I need to assemble for an investigation. The timestamps are embedded as subtitles by Nest and can be viewed in VLC or QuickTime by enabling the subtitles track.

My goal is to stitch together 20 clips, with the timestamp showing on every clip. I use Premiere Pro and Premiere Rush. When I import the clips into PP or PR I cannot see the subtitles, nor can I find a place to "turn them on."

 

I would greatly appreciate the help anyone can offer.

Use the third party app MediaInfo and inspect one of the files. Use the "tree" view. Post the results here.

 

Also, look for a file with the same name as the video file, but a different extension - i.e. are the subtitles coming from a sidecar file?

Here is the info from MediaInfo.
No, there is only one file.
Nest creates a single .MP4
When I open it in VLC I can choose Subtitles:SubtitleTrack:Track1 and I see the timestamp.
However, I cannot get those timestamps to display in either PR or PP.

Based on your attempt to import, PR does not appear to handle the embedded timed text stream. I'd look for an extractor to get the subtitles into .srt file.

 

I found this discussion:

https://forum.videohelp.com/threads/357915-Extracting-subtitles-from-m4v-mp4

 

Is PR handling the video stream? An interesting mix of variable frame rate.
