Question: How to view the filename of a photo/video in photo app in iphone

I have the following problem:


I have several videos synchronized to my iphone 6+ using itunes or transferred by airdrop; and because the first frames are in black they all have the same thumbnail. Is there a way to view the filename in photos app so I know which one should I play?


Thanks,

iPhone 6 Plus, iOS 11.2.6

Photos does not reveal the filenames. For photos you can use photo editing extensions like viewexif or metapho, but I Do not know, if there are similar extensions for videos.

It would be better to edit the videos on your computer to add a title frame, so the thumbnails will not be black. Or trim them on the iPhone.

Thanks Leonie, it is sad that to find out that the only way to know the content of the video (other than playing it) is to edit it to add a frame at the beginning. It is hard to believe that such a basic functionality is not available on iphones.
