Glad you were brave enough to try the current trunk build. :)

Right. Unfortunately, most common video container formats don't seem to
have metadata indicating when a video was filmed, as far as we know. So
any video you import from your hard drive will end up in No Event. If
you import videos directly from a camera, Shotwell will put them into
events according to the date they were filmed.

If the Theora format supports date tags, then we should enhance Shotwell
to be able to read them. I've just ticketed this here:

Dragging them to events should work, but is broken in the trunk at the
We'll fix this soon.
