I've never found any two video editors that agreed on timestamps :-(.

I use the big hammer of generating a small version of the video
with the timestamps printed on each frame by ffmpeg so I'm
sure the same version of ffmpeg will believe the same timestamp:


I can then play that video and pause to pick timestamps off
the image.
