Get GPS data from a .mov file
« on: December 07, 2013, 08:18:25 AM »
Hi guys,

I'm trying to get the GPS information embedded into a .mov file recorded with a DoD-Tec cammera for the car. Is it possible to do it with ExifTool? I have tryied but as I'm new maybe I have not enought experience. I could get basic information from the .mov as the codec, date... but no the GPS.

Can any help me? Thank so much.

ExifTool will extract GPS from the metadata in a MOV image, but currently it won't extract it if embedded in the video stream.  However, this is top of my list of things to do over the Christmas holidays.  It would be helpful if you could send me a short sample with GPS embedded.  My email is philharvey66 at gmail.com

Queen's University has a mail grey-listing strategy to help with spam.  It rejects the first mail from any new sender, but your SMTP relay host should retry automatically (probably after an hour).  If it doesn't, just try sending again.  Thanks.

I got the samples, thanks.  I'll see what I can do over the Christmas holidays to extract GPS from these.

Hi

I need this option too
Some way needed to extract EXIF GPSLatitude and Longtitude linked with time or frame index of MP4 or MOV video (by video registrator)

I can send examples of video with GPS metadata, but they are large, up to 4Gb

I think I have enough samples, thanks.  I have worked a bit on this and haven't made much headway yet, but I plan to dedicate a couple of days in the next week for working on this.
