How to GeoTag MP4-files with *.srt geodata
I have geodata from my video in the *.srt format. It is basically a plain text file with the information presented as follows:
00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:00,434
07 Nov 2019 08:12:16
-25,97415, 32,5939, 100,5m, 65°
00:00:00,435 --> 00:00:01,434
07 Nov 2019 08:12:17
-25,9741, 32,59385, 97,4m, 64°
00:00:01,435 --> 00:00:02,434
07 Nov 2019 08:12:18
-25,97405, 32,59379, 95,9m, 65°
How can I use this data to geotag the videos accurately? I put this data in to a CSV-file and used GPS Visualizer to convert this data to a GPX-file. However, the VideoGeotagger is not able to read this file. Maybe there is a problem with the format of the GPX-file.
Do you have an example template if I just enter the information in a CSV file and try to use that directly?
Are the SRT files and video from a DJI drone or a different device? If from a DJI drone, you should be able to load the video with the SRT companion file directly to Remote Geo software with having to further geo-tag. Here is a How-To video: https://youtu.be/4PBUct6Pa1s
If not from a DJI drone, we can post some GPX and CSV file that will be compatible for geotagging.

Thanks a lot for getting back to me so quick on this. The data is not from a drone, but rather from a video clip taken with Open Camera.
I actually managed to make progress, and was able to produce a .GPX file out of that data by just reading the .GPX documentation and producing a .GPX file in the right format. However, I do have a follow-up question related to my original inquiry.
I have now geotagged the video, and the program produced a companion file. I need to use the video in an outside program, which only accepts single files. I think this would mean that I need to merge or embed the companion file to the video. I presume I need the VideoGeotagger Pro to do this? Do you have any hints on how to do this if I acquire the Pro licence?
