GPS stream export
« on: May 29, 2017, 08:42:47 AM »

Thanks for the amazing tool! Have to say this as it's my first post here.

I was able to extract the GPS information from a mp4 video recorded on a GoPro 5 Black.
However, the only result I was able to get was the initial GPS position when I started recording.

I'm interested in getting the stream of video coordinates exported to a CSV file, so I can draw a map of the trek.
The current software from GoPro (QUIK) shows it on the playback, but I'm more interested in a map only output and not video.

I really tried to get this data out of the exiftool before asking here, however I could not find a solution...
So my initial question is, does the tool even support that?

Sorry, but ExifTool doesn't yet support extracting metadata from the video stream of MP4 videos.
