Any update on Merging MP4/MPV and .gtx

I have a bunch of gopro videos that I have had to edit the sound from. Unfortunately this removed the geotags. I have then extracted the geotags from the original videos and attached it to the edited videos. However now I want to know is there anyway to merge the edited video and the .gtx file into one file? I want to be able to drop the video onto a program and it will automatically know where it is. Does anyone have any insight on the best way to do this?

Hello @MrHoBo,

As you have probably seen - Video GeoTagger PRO will let you play back GoPro videos with embedded GPS. However, if that is missing, then using any version of Video GeoTagger, you can geotag the video by syncing it up with a .GPX GPS file location position on a map (I don't think we currently support .GTX) like you see here:

And if the GPX file is already properly time-synced to the video, then you can simple load it via the File menu for geospatial map playback.

You can try Video GeoTagger here: https://videogeotagger.com/

Thanks,

@remotegeo Yes I know using the software and can do it, however the folks I am sending the videos too do not use the software or pay for it, so that unfortunately doesn't help. 

You don't support the .gtx file? yet your software is the one that produced the .gtx file. I paid for your software so I could pull the tags from the original video and add them to the edited videos. But what your saying is you don't support .gtx? 

 

You seemed to not answer the question I asked, is there any way to merge the two into one file. I do not want to have use two files to be able to do what were doing.

Hi @mrhobo,

To clarify our software exports a .GPX file (with a "P"), not a .GTX. No - at this time Video GeoTagger does not have the ability to re-embed or merge the .GPX and MP4 into a single file with data embedded like it originally came from the GoPro. However, with Video GeoEditor you can overlay the GPS data onto the video and even add your own text overlays so the customer can watch the video in like Microsoft Media Player or VLC. 

Maybe we are still a little unclear on your ideal end-product for the geotagged video? What software would you like the client to be able to view it in and what are you hoping they will be able to see?

Thanks,

--Remote Geo
