Hi, I'm running Linux Mint 18.1 Serena/ Mate.

 

I do a lot of videos of Eagle nests, and have been asked to help with one. They want me to record all activity within a 90 minute period occasionally, and I'll be recording it also. The particular nest in Colorado has no time stamp on the feed, and I need to see if one exists that I can use. I have looked around and can't find anything that will work. If I do this correctly, here is an example of what I need - http://i221.photobucket.com/albums/dd66/keith1_017/stamp_zpsqhawe7hw.png

 

You can see the time stamp in the lower left corner. I need one on my desktop that I can set to Colorado time and move around to be visible in the video feed.  I hope I've explained this correctly.

 

Thank you.

Thank you very much Nick. My wife got home and has me putting up Christmas lights, so I'll try it shortly and let you know how I fare.

Neither way seems to do what I need. I need a timestamp on my desktop that I can drag over a feed I'm recording - maybe there is no such thing? anyhow, thank you very much for the information.
