Hi Miroslav!

(I'm also addressing the KPA mailing list so that everyone interested can also 

I'm not perfectly sure if I understand the problem right. You select some 
range of images and videos and view them, and you first get the photos and the 
videos at the end, right?

If so, probably, the only problem is that KPA doesn't know the correct date of 
the video due to the lack of an EXIF header. You can set the correct date 
manually via the annotation dialog. Then, the video should appear at the 
correct place.

If I didn't grasp it, please tell me ;-)

Cheers, Tobias
