Make it possible to add GPS coordinates to movies and pictures in jAlbum

I normally make it possible to display the location where a pictures is made in Google Maps. The GPS coordinates are fetched from the EXIF data of a picture. These data are added via Lightroom or via my program EditPhotoInfo.

I like now too to display the location where a movie has been recorded, so the GPS coordinates of a movie should be added to the data used by jAlbum. I don't think that a movie has an EXIF data structure as used in jpg files, so the GPS coordinates should probably stored in a text files for jAlbum.

But how it is implemented is not important for me, as long as the GPS coordinets can be fetched in a skin.

If you implement this, to be consistent, I think you should also make it possible to add the GPS coordinates to a picture in jAlbum.

Thanks you. I agree in principle that one should be consistent with these features, no matter if we're talking about images or videos. The next step will likely be to move jAlbum to a newer version of the metadata-extractor library, capable of extracting EXIF info from more file types than just JPEG images.

Do movies have an EXIF data block?
And if they have, I have no idea how to add the GPS coordinates to such a block by another program, so I think you should add special variables to jAlbum for the GPS coordinates.
You could automatically move the GPS coordinates of JPEG files to the same data structure and offer for the skins global variables or an access function to this new GPS buffer.

The newer version is now available, but I still can't add a GPS location to a video.
