This may seem like a weird task, but I need to do it.
I have a ton of videos I have converted. Source files are various formats, new files are all mp4. File names of each of the new files are identical to the originals except for the extension.
I would like a way to have a batch file automatically take the timestamps (created/modified/accessed) from the individual, original files and clone them to the new files.
video1.wmv --> video1.mp4
video2.avi --> video2.mp4
video3.mp4 --> video3.mp4
I have intermidiate experince with batch scripts, but I'm having difficulty finding out if this task is possible. Any help is appreciated.

Was able to do it with exiftool in a batch file.
exiftool.exe -tagsFromfile "C:\%%f.avi" -FileAccessDate -FileCreateDate -FileModifyDate -ext mp4 "C:\Folder with files to be changed"
Though, the File Access Date doesn't really work. It set the last accessed times to the same values as the last modified values. Works well enough, I guess.
Thanks for the suggestion, though.Go to the full post
