The command 'ffmpeg -i GOPR0221.MP4 -dump' gave me the following,

Input #0, mov,mp4,m4a,3gp,3g2,mj2, from 'GOPR0221.MP4':
    major_brand     : mp41

      timecode        : 15:37:56:22

I am in London and I had synced the GOPRO internal clock to the local time. So, I believe that the 'creation_time' means the instant at which the recording started or the time corresponding to the first frame. Am I right? and what is timecode then?
