How to extract timestamp from video frame?

Use case: Live streaming
Source stream RTSP
Streaming Server Wowza
Playing the RTMP stream using JWPlayer.

I am trying to figure out a way to extract the actual timestamp of that frame as it was recorded from the source camera device. Is there a way JWPlayer will extract that?

What I am trying to achieve is measure the latency of the frame since the time it was captures to the time it was played? Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

If you can embed the timestamp you are looking for in the RTMP stream’s metadata, our player should be able to read it via the onMeta() event. Please see for more details.
