Synchronization error M2TS GPS track log
« on: March 05, 2019, 11:01:14 PM »
Hello, I get an error when extracting an M2TS track log on some files.
"Warning: M2TS synchronization error" - the track log cuts off part way through the video.
This is the code I am using; -ee -p "$filename, $gpslatitude, $gpslongitude, $gpstimestamp, $DateTimeOriginal” -T -n “E:\PCPA Recover\2_Boat_SVAM\Calliope\2018\Video”> “E:\PCPA Recover\2_Boat_SVAM\Calliope\2018\Video\VideoGPS.txt”

This does not seem to be a DST time issue as reported in a previous similar post.
When the video is combined in Sony's PlayMemories with other video's the sync error does not occur.

Using Windows 10.
Output attached

Can you upload the M2TS file somewhere so I can take a look?  You can email me directly: philharvey66 at
