MV snapshot API not consistent

Hi, I'm working with MV snapshot API but I got non consistent picture.


If I try to get a snapshot on the past using this url:


{{baseUrl}}/networks/{{networkId}}/cameras/{{serial}}/snapshot (with proper values set)


and with this body (an example)


"timestamp": "2019-03-13T12:01:58+00:00"
I got a snapshot with non person inside, but if I view the video at the same time point I have a person. I have no way to identify the real timespan of the snapshot as this would require to have a timestamp overlay on the picture (which id desirable) or the cam looking at a precise clock to compare time differences.
I suspect the snapshot takes the nearest keyframe from the video which is not always the required timestamp.
